Today, Canada And Ireland Clash In T20 World Cup 2024

In the 13th match of the T20 World Cup 2024, Canada and Ireland will compete at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York.

Both teams are seeking their first victory after suffering defeats in the tournament. Canada lost to the USA by seven wickets, despite posting a competitive total of 194-5, largely due to Aaron Jones’ outstanding performance with the bat for the USA.

Meanwhile, Ireland was defeated by India in their opening match, being bowled out for just 96 runs. India easily chased down the target, winning by eight wickets with Rohit Sharma scoring a half-century.

Pitch conditions in New York have posed challenges, with no team scoring over 100 runs in four innings. Pacers have been particularly effective, taking 18 out of 28 wickets with an economy rate of 5.46. The ICC acknowledged the substandard pitches and is working to improve them for the remaining T20 World Cup games.

In head-to-head T20Is, Canada and Ireland are tied at 2-2, but they haven’t faced each other since 2013.
