The USA vs Ireland T20 World Cup 2024 match will be played in Florida on Friday, June 14 from 8 pm IST which is 10.30 am local time.

USA vs Ireland Team Analysis

USA

USA won their first two games against Canada and Pakistan and lost their previous game against India. Despite the loss to India, they are well-placed to qualify for the Super 8. So far in this tournament, they have punched above their weight and they will need to do it once again against Ireland.

USA's win over Pakistan has been the highlight of the tournament so far. Another has been Afghanistan's win over New Zealand.

Ireland

Ireland have lost both their games so far. They failed to chase 138 against Canada in a shocking defeat. That changed the tournament around for the Irish team. They recently defeated Pakistan in a recent T20I series and they should take confidence from that win.

Ireland has a good record against the USA in T20Is and they should take confidence from that as well. They have been well below par then where they would have liked to have been in this tournament so far.

USA  vs Ireland Key Factors

Pitch Conditions

The pitch at the Central Broward Stadium in Florida has been a batting-friendly venue. So far 18 matches have been played at the venue with 11 matches won by the team batting first and just seven batting second. Drop-in pitches are used here as well for the matches and there is even pace bounce and good carry in this track.

Form and Fitness 

Ireland are low on confidence after back-to-back losses. Their loss to Canada will have hurt them big time as they failed to chase a getable total of 138. The USA, on the other hand, have all the confidence in the world and they will be charged up heading into this game against Ireland.  In terms of fitness, there are no concerns with either of the two teams.

Tactical Acumen

Paul Stirling has plenty to think about heading into this game. He has not scored too many runs with the bat and is struggling for form. USA skipper Monank Patel has scored crucial runs with the bat and has led the team as well. Both captains need to understand the conditions of the venue and choose the team accordingly.

Ireland have won four out of the five games they have played against UAE. However, in their current form, they are a deflated side. The USA have all the confidence in the world.

Conclusion 

There is a forecast of heavy rain for this game. If the match ends in a washout, Ireland's hopes of making it to the Super 8 will end.
