Ireland has also announced its team for the T20 World Cup to be held in Australia. Andrew Balbirnie will be the captain of this 15-member team.
Let us remind you that Ireland will have to play a qualifier round match before the Super-12 of the ICC T20 World Cup-2022. To qualify for the Super-12, Ireland must win a match in the qualifier round. Significantly, in the qualifier round of the World Cup, Ireland has to play matches against Zimbabwe, Scotland and West Indies. Ireland will face Zimbabwe for the first time in this episode.
Ireland beat Afghanistan
It is worth noting that in the five-match T20I series played last month against the visiting Afghanistan team, Ireland defeated Afghanistan 3-2. In the first two matches of that match, Ireland defeated Afghanistan by 7 and 5 wickets. Then, in the third and fourth matches, Afghanistan won by the Duckworth-Lewis method. But, the last of the series. In the match, Ireland defeated Afghanistan by 7 wickets and won the series.
However, now it remains to be seen what Ireland can do in the qualifier round of the T20 World Cup-2022.
