Florida hosts the USA vs Ireland T20 World Cup match on Friday, June 14 from 8 pm IST which is 10.30 am local time. This is a crucial game for both teams more so for Ireland who find themselves in a must-win situation.

Ireland are yet to win in this T20 World Cup having lost against India and Canada. Against Canada, they failed to chase 138 as their batting order collapsed under the pressure of the chase. The New York ground conditions got the better of them and they succumbed to the Canadian spinners.

The USA, on the other hand, have been brave with the kind of cricket they played. They chased 194 against Canada in their first game and stunned Pakistan by beating them twice. They first chased 159 in the original match and then beat Pakistan in the Super Over as well to win the match.

Pakistan crumbled under pressure twice in that match. In the next match against against India, they crumbled once again under pressure from being 80 odd for three not being able to chase 120, and falling behind by six runs.

The result of the USA vs Ireland match will have bearings on the future of three teams, the USA, Ireland and Pakistan. Pakistan would dearly love the USA to lose to Ireland. This gives them a chance to beat Ireland in their next game after beating Canada. While India are almost through to the Super 8s from Group A, any one of these three teams can be the other team to join them from this group.
