India need to get back to their winning ways before facing South Africa and West Indies while Ireland would need to play well to silence their critics and prove that the win over England was just not a flash in the pan.
Players to look out for:
Kevin O’Brien, with this big hitting against England has risen many a eyebrows and will be the one to watch out for against the Indian spinners. Yusuf Pathan, who has had a quiet tournament thus far, will be looking out for some batting practice against the minnows.
Indian batting has been revolving around their openers. If it was Virender Sehwag against Bangladesh, it was Sachin Tendulkar against England who ensured that India had enough on the board with superb centuries. Gautam Gambhir too has chipped in with half centuries in both the matches and with the return of Yuvraj Singh into some form, there will be little worries for India with regards to the batting.
India’s real problem lies in their bowling department. In the first match, they allowed Bangladesh post close to 300 while England almost chased down the target of 338 with ease. It was England’s lack of application that tied the match than India’s extraordinary bowling. Except Harbhajan Singh and Zaheer Khan, other bowlers failed to tie the English batsman down. The match will be the ideal platform for India to test its bowling resources ahead of the more important matches in the tournament.
Ireland have nothing to lose in the match. No one expected them to win against England and that too chasing an improbable 327 runs and no one is expecting them to win against India either. Their batting will again depend on the O’Brien brothers, Niall and Kevin, and also John Mooney, Alex Cussack and former England player Ed Joyce. The best thing of Ireland batting has been their collective contribution without depending on one particular individual.
Their bowlers’ lack of pace has been a boon for Ireland. They were successful in restricting England in the slog overs by giving away just 39 runs in the last six overs. Mooney picked up 4/63 in the last match and bowlers like Trent Johnston, Paul Stirling and Boyd Rankin could prove handy in tying down the Indian batsman....being a human...
