The 2 times T20 World Cup champions have failed to receive a direct qualification to the Super 12 stage of the ICC Mens T20 World Cup 2022. Furthermore, they are struggling in the qualifiers as well, which is a concern for the team. They were crushed by Scotland in the opening game but picked up form in the second game. However, the qualification is still far away. This fixture is a must-win to stay alive in Group B.

Ireland, on the other hand, is also having a below-par season. They have one win in two games and are ranked last on the table, just below the West Indies. They managed to defeat Scotland in the previous game and will back themselves in this fixture. However, their qualification chances look bleak at the moment.
