ICC T20 World Cup Qualifiers Match 35 Squad Comparison


Ireland will take on Nigeria in their final league stage match. So far, Ireland has 3 wins and 2 losses in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifier. In the last match, Ireland defeated Jersey by 8 wickets while losing against Canada by 10 runs. Ireland’s form in the last 3 matches – W L W. While failing to chase 157 runs against Canada, Ireland restricted Jersey to 105-10 in the following match and chased the target successfully with 8 wickets in hand.

Mark Adair, Boyd Rankin, and David Delany are in great form picking up crucial wickets for Ireland and also bowling at a good economy. Paul Stirling and Andrew Balbirnie played really well scoring unbeaten 58 and 33 runs respectively in the last match after their failure to make a significant contribution in the chase against Canada. When Ireland lost by 10 runs, Stuart Thomspon was top batsman for the team with unbeaten 28 runs at number 8. It goes to show the depth in Ireland’s batting line-up and the kind of challenge this team would pose in the next match.


With 4 losses in 4 matches so far in the tournament, Nigeria is at the bottom in the points table. Though Chimezie Onwuzulike (46*) and Joseph Adedeji (51*) played some pretty good innings in the last match for Nigeria at number 4 and 5, the team’s batting woes are far from over. After being bowled out for 71 runs against Oman batting first, Nigeria’s top 3 batsmen were out for 2, 0 and 4 runs against UAE and the team finished with 111-3 in 20 overs batting first.

Defending such a low total, the bowlers picked 5 wickets for Nigeria. Among the wicket-takers, Sylvester Okpe bowled 3 overs for 22 runs picking up 2 wickets while Daniel Gim bowled 1 Over for 18 runs picking up 1 wicket. While Nigeria bowlers have been expensive, they’ve picked wickets for the side even while defending 71 runs against Oman. Sylvester Okpe and Sulaimon Runsewe had bowled 1 overs and picked up a wicket each. Though there were a few positives out of Nigeria’s last two performances in the bowling department and the middle-order coming to rescue in the last match, they’re up for a big challenge against Ireland in the next match.
