One of the black horses in the T20 World Cup groups tournament Ireland will be the team to look out for especially because they have some quality players in their squad who can turn the game around any moment. The fact that they have left a mark in the last two fifty over world cup makes them even dangerous but the matches won’t be easy. They have good teams in the name of Australia and West Indies in their group and winning at least one match will be very crucial for them in order to take the decision into run rate basis.
Unlike other teams the run rate factor will help them because if Australia and West Indies have a close match then they can be safe provided they win by a good margin in their respective matches. If they become the winner in their group then they will be placed in the second group of the super eights and if they come second they will be in the first group. In the first case they will play the runners up of Group A and if the latter happens then they will face the winner of Group A. The fight to the super eights will not be easy and even if they do manage to qualify for the super eights they would have to work really hard in order to stay in the tournament.
