West Indies vs Ireland, the Netherlands, and Sri Lanka have made it to the Super 12. Which team will be the fourth? Gibraltar or Scotland? In a moment, the two teams will square up at the same location. Change tabs to see who wins that life-or-death fight. I’ll see you there.
This victory is really important. At the same moment last year, we suffered a discouraging defeat. We gave it a lot of thought, and a lot of things at home changed. We wanted to accomplish a few things as a squad and play a certain style because of the new coach. I couldn’t be prouder after losing the first game and then coming back to defeat a two-time champion in a crucial match.
The game ended on a somewhat emotional note, but we are all simply happy. In T20 cricket, a lot may happen on any one day. Since we’ve already played three games here, it may work to our advantage that we play the next one here. We want to compare ourselves to the very best. It had excellent wicket. Stirling is among our all-time top hitters.
His playing today made it simple for me, and my playing made it simple for him. It was fantastic how Lorcan in and played uninhibitedly. A true all-around performance was given. The ground was terrific, and the bowlers were excellent. A day to be Irish with pride.
West Indies vs Ireland It’s difficult since we haven’t batted well at all in this competition. Making 145 on a really excellent batting surface is really challenging for the bowlers. It was going to be difficult. Ireland deserves praise for their excellent batting and effective bowling today. There are several encouraging signs: King is batting beautifully, Jason is bowling well again, and Joseph is stepping up with the ball for us.
We are learning from this experience. We let both our supporters and ourselves down. It most certainly hurts. My performance left my guys feeling let down.
Gareth Delany was named the game’s MVP
We wanted to cross the finish line, and the way we achieved it was spectacular. It’s a fantastic day for us. Nathan Hauritz, our spin bowling coach, arrived with a strategy, and we made an effort to keep it straightforward. To be really honest, it’s a dream come true for us, and we are extremely happy. We got into this situation because to Campher’s knock the other day (against Scotland) and Dockrell’s assistance.
The two seasoned starters, who struggled in the first two games, gave their club a strong start. Both Stirling and Balbirnie scored goals recklessly, bringing the asking rate under 6 RPO on the powerplay. It was chaos from both ends. In the eighth over, Akeal Hosein removed the Ireland captain, breaking the first partnership, but Ireland hardly noticed.
Stirling was joined by Tucker, and the two maintained the momentum. West Indies appeared to be completely lost as Ireland pursued them with precision. Stirling, a seasoned player, reached his 21st T20I half-century and finished undefeated as he and Tucker led his team home with 15 balls remaining. Keep an eye out for the presentations.
