Australia would take on a confident Ireland in the 31st game of the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2022. Australia saw its last game against England being washed away due to rain, and they must win this one to strengthen their position on the points table. The Irish side also shared the points with Afghanistan as rain also played spoilsport in that game.  

Ireland will find it difficult in this game as the Australians have the best fast-bowling attack in the world. The wicket at Gabba is known for assisting fast bowlers, and the Irish batsmen have to play out of their skins. Australians have had an excellent record at Gabba and have won five out of six games. It will make them confident in this game.

Australia Preview

Aaron Finch would be upset with his side's last game against England abandoned due to rain. England isn't in the best form, and the Aussies would have fancied their chances in the game. Finch would hope for better weather against Ireland and win this game to book a berth in the semis. He wouldn't like his side to be complacent, as Ireland has a habit of winning big games.  

David Warner and Aaron Finch have had a quiet tournament, and they'd look to offer a solid start in this game. Mitchell Marsh must hold the innings in the middle overs and let Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis do the big hitting. Tim David, Matthew Wade, and Pat Cummins can hit the ball cleanly, adding to the side's batting strength.  

The bowling attack has had two ordinary outings, and they will aspire to do well in this game. Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood bring pace to this attack and must get early wickets. Mitchell Starc is an experienced bowler and will look to bowl well, along with Ashton Agar and Stoinis, in the middle overs. Maxwell and Marsh add bowling options for the side making it strong. 

Australia Predicted Playing XI:

Aaron Finch (c), David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Tim David, Matthew Wade (wk), Pat Cummins, Ashton Agar, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood

Australia Actual Playing XI:

Timothy David, Aaron Finch, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Glenn Maxwell, Matthew Wade, Marcus Stoinis, David Warner, Adam Zampa, Mitchell Marsh, Josh Hazlewood

Ireland Preview

Andrew Balbirnie wouldn't be happy with the rain washout against Afghanistan in the last game. The Irish side would have wanted to win that game after the inspiring victory against Australia. They take on the defending champions with some of the best players in the world. Balbirnie shall like to see a spirited effort from his players in this game.  

Paul Stirling and Balbirnie are doing well at the top, and the pair shall look to set up a big opening wicket stand in this game. Lorcan Tucker, Harry Tector, and Curtis Campher are important players in the middle order and need to convert their starts. The team would also like to see contributions from Gareth Delany, George Dockrell, and Barry McCarthy in the lower middle order.  

The bowling attack must be on its toes, as the Australians have a solid batting line-up. Joshua Little and Mark Adair would put the side in a comfortable position with a good spell with the new ball. Delany is an experienced bowler and must do well in the middle overs. The team would also like to see tight spells from McCarthy, Campher, and Fionn Hand. 

Ireland Predicted Playing XI:

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

Ireland Actual Playing XI:

Mark Adair, Curtis Campher, George Dockrell, Joshua Little, Paul Stirling, Barry McCarthy, Fionn Hand, Lorcan Tucker, Gareth Delany, Harry Tector, Andrew Balbirnie

Weather Conditions

We expect good weather in Brisbane on October 31. The batting conditions would be challenging as the ball would move early in the game. The side batting first would eye a score of 160 runs on this surface, and this will be a difficult score to chase on a fresh wicket where bowlers shall have the upper hand.

Venue Details

The Gabba, Brisbane, is an excellent venue for T20 cricket, where the small size of the ground offers plenty of run-scoring opportunities for the batsmen. Fast bowlers enjoy bowling on this track as there is a lot of assistance from the surface. Spinners don't have much on this surface as the ball doesn't turn much and skids through.

Toss: To Bowl

This would be the season's first game at this venue, and there shall be some assistance for the bowlers. Most teams in the past have opted to bowl on this surface, winning the toss, and sides chasing the score have won more games. Hence the side winning the toss will likely opt for bowling first here.

Ireland has made the headlines after their win against England. They have a big job on hand, taking on the world champions. They have done well as a unit, but the middle order looks shaky. Australia plays at home and knows the conditions well in Brisbane. Their fast bowling attack is strong, and it will put them ahead of Ireland in this game.
