Preview

Canada started their World Cup journey with a bang, posting a competitive 194 runs against co-hosts USA. Navneet Dhaliwal and Nicholas Kirton impressed with fifties, but their bowlers faltered in the face of a strong American batting display. Despite a promising start, Aaron Johnson couldn’t capitalize, leaving Canada with a bitter taste of defeat.

Ireland, on the other hand, faced a different challenge. Up against a formidable Indian bowling attack at the same venue, they were bundled out for a mere 96 runs. While the pitch has been a talking point, with some calling it bowler-friendly, Ireland’s batsmen will be looking to shake off the jitters and put up a more substantial total.

Ireland boasts a seasoned opening duo in Andy Balbirnie and Paul Stirling, who will be crucial in providing a solid foundation. Their pace attack, featuring Mark Adair and Joshua Little, poses a significant threat to a relatively inexperienced Canadian batting line-up.

This encounter promises to be a tight contest. Both teams have a point to prove, and victory will be essential to stay alive in the tournament. The match ends at 8:15 PM Nepal Time (2:45 PM GMT). Cricket fans will be eager to see who emerges victorious in this Trans-Atlantic battle.
