India’s last group match of the Women’s 20-20 World Cup 2023 is against Ireland. This match is going to be do-or-die for Team India. If they win here, India will easily make it to the semi-finals of the tournament. At the same time, Team India’s difficulty will increase if they lose and they will need the support of some luck to reach the semi-finals.
For Ireland, this match is just a fight for honour as they already lost their opening three matches and are out of the semi-final race. However, there will be no pressure on Ireland and the team would like to end their World Cup campaign with a win against India. Here, will look at three Irish players to watch out for.
Ireland’s opening batter Gaby Lewis has the ability to provide a great start to the team as she scored 36 runs in Ireland’s first match of the tournament against England. However, that was a pretty slow innings as those runs came off 37 balls, which included 5 fours.
On the other hand, Lewis couldn’t do anything in the second match against Pakistan. She scored only 10 runs off 15 deliveries, with only 1 four. However, her records in the shortest format are pretty decent as she has scored 1525 runs in the 67 innings she has played so far.
