Australia Hopeful for An Easy Win on Ireland during Tour of South Africa

New Delhi, Tuesday, September 27 – Viewers are keen to see potential of Ireland players against Australia today. All arrangements at Willowmoore Park in Benoni have been done and are to first-class to host the 2nd ODI on Tuesday as the Aussies and Ireland are to contest in a short while. Here is to describe that Ireland lost the opening One- Day International match against Proteas a couple of days ago by 206 runs.

A good show is definitely expected from Australia, who are likely to pull off during their tour of South Africa as this could help them be familiar with pitch conditions of the place and may be of great use when they contest against the hosts in the tournament that begins from September 30. Australian side will be guided by Steven Smith. Who among David Warner, Aaron Finch, George Bailey, Travis Head, Matthew Wade, James Faulkner, Scott Boland, Mitchell Marsh, Shaun Marsh, Joe Mennie, Chris Tremain, Daniel Worrall, John Hastings and Adam Zampa will find a spot in the team will be cleared after some time.

Ireland captain William Porterfield will hope for not making mistakes they did against South Africa. Whoever among Paul Stirling, Kevin O’Brien, Sean Terry, John Anderson, Gary Wilson, Stuart Poynter, George Dockrell, Tim Murtagh, Craig Young, Peter Chase, Barry McCarthy, Niall O’Brien, Ed Joyce and Andy McBrine selected in the team are likely to not let Australians feel the ease while competing against them, increasing the probability of showing improvement in batting, fielding and bowling. How much success they attain in their objective will be an interesting point to notice towards the end of the day.

Exposure to a lot of cricket will help most of the Ireland players perform excellently well but they need to understand that any room can’t be given easily to the rivals whether batting or bowling. Ireland players may think of coming back home with something to cherish for a bit long and that could be nothing but an amazing win today. Despite the fact that a lot can’t be expected from them but good efforts will certainly catch the eyes. Aussies, on the other hand, are supposed to enjoy another victory being on an experienced side. Australia are full of talented players. As a matter of the fact, the outcome of today’s match must be clear in the minds of cricket fans. But predicting anything for certain in this sport is never likely. Individual performances will definitely play important role for making teams to shine.

Eyes can’t be shut to the reality that Ireland haven’t been successful to turn as a threat for the opponents often. Consistency in the game will impart huge role in defeating the rivals in most of the matches that are to be held in the coming days. The squads that played against them some time ago were able to put pressure on them at different time intervals. However, the way they performed a few times against Test playing countries is commendable. Ireland thrashed Zimbabwe for thrice, Bangladesh twice and England, Pakistan and West Indies for once. To rise up post witnessing the fall is not as easy as it may seem in the first look to others. But it is possible through dedicated efforts of the entire team that can make Ireland, who are considered capable to upset heavyweights thanks to existence of some talented players, go a step ahead of other opponents.

Winning the match isn’t all. No matter, if they lose today, experience earned in contest on Tuesday will make Ireland players grow and learn how mistakes can teach a lot of things. If one talks about possibility then Ireland have the potential to turn impossible things possible. Australia will not try to make mistakes that leave with no option but to see the game going away from their grip. Being captained by Smith, approach of the Aussies will be on doing their bit. If he and his squad capitalize their talent, the team is able to taste an easy victory. There is no hesitation that jobs on the shoulders of batsmen, bowlers, wicketkeeper-batsman and all-rounders of both sides will be huge as they can’t make blunder of considering each other weak on any part at all. Both teams will try their best to do well on the track, which may let them enjoy batting.
