India VS Ireland

First things firstIndian bowlers have been rubbish so far and they look the worst amongst all the major teams participating in this World Cup 2011. They have a very good chance to hit their straps in this game and show that they are not as bad as they have been so far!!

I don’t think hat the Indian batsmen will be tested so much but then taking teams like Ireland lightly can cost any team big time and who this better than this Indian team.

But Ireland is no mug and will definitely provide some resistance to the Indians. After all they defeated both Pakistan and Bangladesh in the previous edition of the world cup in the Caribbean.

Many of the Irish players take part in the competitive English County Cricket and some of their players like Ed Joyce, Niall O’Brien, Kevin O’Brien and George Dockrell are very good players.

Key Battles to look out for in the match between India and Ireland on this Sunday, the 6th of March 2011 at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore :

1. Indian Fast Bowlers VS Ed Joyce/ Paul Stirling

2. Harbhajan Singh VS the O’Brien Brothers

3. George Dockrell VS the Indian Middle Order


Ireland have defeated England and the Indians now, must be very worried... Especially their bowlers... If India doesn't bat first and get about 400 runs then I think it will be mighty close game!!
