Ireland have a lot at stake as they will be playing against the two best sides in ODI cricket. Both Bangladesh and New Zealand are going to test Ireland and they will really have to come up with their best if they want to challenge the opponents. The squad has been announced and there are many capable players in the squad who can help Ireland challenge the bigger sides in this all-important tri-series for them. In fact, they will be tested more as they will be playing 4 of the total 6 matches that are to be played in the tournament.
Ireland’s regular captain is William Porterfield and he will be captaining his side yet another time in this big tournament for them. William has been a great batsman for them and he has also lead his side very well over the years and a similar power performance will be expected from him in the tournament.
In the batting department, Ireland will be depending a lot on Porterfield and besides him it will be Niall O’brien who will have the onus of responsibility on his shoulders. O’brien is always amongst runs and can play a key part in getting his side home even this time around. Andy Bilbrine has also shown some great batting skills in recent times and he can very much turn the state of the match on his own. So, how he plays for them is going to be crucial.
In the bowling department, Ireland have seen many changes over the years. George Dockrell is the key player for them as far as their bowling is concerned. Besides him, they will be relying on Craig Young, Stuart Thompson, and Tim Murtagh in the bowling department. Paul Stirling can role his arm over as well.
