AUS vs IRE – ICC T20 World Cup – Team Preview
Luck is not in favour of the Australian squad this year and even after being a dominating team in T20 cricket, they will have to work hard to qualify for the next round. With only one win in the Super 12 segment, Australia lost against New Zealand and their last game against England was abandoned due to unexpected rain.
Skipper Aaron Finch and his men will be hungry for winning and start showing signs of domination again in the tournament. Considering the fact that Ireland has a habit of winning against big teams, Australia will face some turbulence on Monday. All the eyes will be again on David Warner and Aaron Finch to give their team a good start. Mitchell Marsh’s form is again a major concern for team management.
One department in which Aussies need not worry is their bowling. Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins and Marcus Stonis are three pillars of their bowling attack. To support them, Ashton Agar and Glenn Maxwell will be in the playing XI.
Ireland is one of the most inspiring teams in international cricket. They have won fixtures against some of the biggest teams in the past and the Irish squad carries that confidence on the ground. However, their last game against Afghanistan got abandoned and that will come out as a huge disappointment for Balbirine and his men. The squad should take inspiration from the past game they have played against bigger teams like Australia.
In this match, Paul Stirling and Balbirnie will want to establish a significant opening wicket stand because they are doing well at the top. The primary issue with the Irish squad right now is their middle order which is struggling to maintain the momentum given by the opening pair. Team management would like to see contributions from Gareth Delany, George Dockrell, and Barry McCarthy.
Joshua Little and Mark Adair will be leading the pace attack and they both are deadly with the new ball. Delany is an experienced bowler and must do well in the middle overs.
AUS vs IRE – ICC T20 World Cup – Probable Playing XI

Ireland: Andrew Balbirnie (c), Paul Stirling, Lorcan Tucker (wk), Harry Tector, George Dockrell, Curtis Campher, Gareth Delany, Mark Adair, Fionn Hand, Barry McCarthy, Joshua Little
