USA and Reland go head to head in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024 for the very first time in a very crucial tie. The match will be played on Friday, June 14, from 8 pm IST which is 10.30 am local time.

Ireland lost their previous two games against India and Canada. Canada beat them by 12 runs in a low-scoring thriller where they failed to chase down 138 in New York. They have played well below par then what they actually can. The batters especially have not been able to adjust themselves with the tracks in the USA so far. They are yet to play in West Indies and a loss here will deny them that chance.

Ireland recently beat Pakistan in the bilateral T20I series heading into this World Cup but they have been found wanting in the first two games. They would be lamenting the fact that they could not chase 138.

The USA have been the giant killer in the tournament so far. They defeated Canada convincingly and then came back to shock Pakistan in the very next game which was the first game between the two sides. USA will be to team to watch out for going forward.

Thus the two remaining group games are must-wins for Ireland to stay alive in the race to the Super 8s. Meanwhile, a win here for the USA will almost guarantee them a spot in the playoffs as their NRR (+0.626) is way better than that of Ireland or Pakistan.

Meanwhile, Pakistan will hope for Ireland to win to keep their Super 8 hopes alive. Losses to the USA and India in their previous two games have put their chances in jeopardy as well. An Ireland win against the USA will leave the match between Pakistan and Ireland as a straight shootout between the two teams.
