Canada vs Ireland Prediction & Tips

CAN vs IRE Match Prediction & Betting Tips, T20 World Cup 2024

Canada will take on Ireland in the 13th game of the T20 World Cup 2024. The game will be played at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium, New York and will start at 8:00 PM IST on June 7

Canada and Ireland both face a must win situation in the next game. Canada come into the game after a crushing seven wickets defeat to USA. Canada batted well and posted a score of 194-5, however, Aaron Jones’ brilliance took USA to a comfortable win. 

Ireland, on the other hand, were humbled by India in their first game. Ireland had no answers to the Indian bowlers as the team was shot down for a mere 96. India later cruised to a win by eight wickets courtesy of Rohit Sharma’s half-century.

A defeat for either of the team will make their qualification for Super 8s extremely tough as the teams need a top 2 finish in the Group to qualify for the next round.

Captains will be keen to bowl first. The pitch is not the easiest to bat and there is a good chance that the team batting first could be bowled out for a low score.

Canada Team News & Playing 11

CAN Team News

Canada had the game under control against USA until Aaron Jones and Andries Gous joined hands to stitch a match winning partnership. Other than the final 10 overs of the game, Canada played decent cricket. The team should back the players against Ireland and step on the park with an unchanged playing XI.

CAN Key Players

  • Navneet Dhaliwal – Navneet had a great game against USA and played a brilliant innings of 61 runs in 44 balls. Once again, Canada would hope for a decent return from the batter in this battle for survival game.
  • Nicholas Kirton – Kirton has shown remarkable consistency for Canada in recent times. He was on fire against USA and played a brilliant innings of 51 in 31 balls. If Canada have to win, Kirton would have to make a significant contribution.
  • Aaron Johnson – Aaron Johnson did not have a great start to the tournament but he is a quality batter. He averages nearly 50 in T20Is, with 736 runs to his name. Ireland have a strong bowling attack but Johnson is well equipped to handle them and play a good innings. 
  • Dillon Heyliger – With 40 wickets in 37 games, Heyliger has been a consistent performer with the ball for Canada and would be eyeing a decent show against Ireland in the next game. He was the best performer in the match against USA and bowled a spell of 1-19.

CAN Team Form

Canada have not been in great form in recent times. Before the T20 World Cup defeat to USA, they also lost the T20I series to the same team.

Ireland Team News & Playing 11

IRE Team News

Ireland had a bizarre outing against India but they would not want to make changes to the playing XI. They have a settled unit and unless there is an injury concern or the conditions change drastically, the team is unlikely to change the combination.

IRE Key Players

  • Andrew Balbirnie – Andrew Balbirnie has been a consistent performer for Ireland over the years. His recent form has not been great but Ireland would still rest a lot of hopes on him. If he gets set, he is probably the ideal batter to score runs on the New York pitch.
  • Paul Stirling – Paul Stirling could play a big role for Ireland against Canada. It will be very tough for batters to stay at the wicket for long given the tough batting conditions, however, Stirling don’t need to face many balls to make an impact. A fiery 30-40 could be a match winning innings on the pitch.
  • Mark Adair – The conditions have been helpful for fast bowlers and the ball has nipped around. Adair is Ireland’s lead pacer and the team would need him to have a great game. Adair’s strength is bowling great lines and that could create a lot of problems for the Canada batters. 
  • Barry McCarthy – McCarthy could also play a big role for Ireland as he being a fast bowler will be tough to face and score off. We are expecting him to be among the wickets on the spicy pitch. 

IRE Team Form

Ireland were no match to India in the last game but they are expected to fare better against Canada, a team they have done well against.
