IRE vs PAK match live streaming and telecast can be watched online on starsports.com and BSkyB.
Result of this match is going to decide future of not only Pakistan and Ireland but also of West Indies cricket team. Lots of calculations and mathematical uncertainties will take in tomorrow’s clash. Pakistan has to win this game to get into quarterfinals whereas Ireland team will have to beat Pakistan by big margin to seal their birth in the quarterfinal for the first time in cricket world cup history.
Pakistan and Ireland both can reach to the knockout stage of ICC world cup even without caring about their match result as if United Arab Emirates beats West Indies. It will not be easy for UAE to beat West Indies. Hence we can hope that Ireland-Pakistan match will decide the quarterfinal line-ups. Irish side will be hoping to create history again tomorrow by defeating Pakistan and knocking them out.
Ireland beat Pakistan in 2007 world cup at West Indies which knocked out them from that competition. So Irish team will be full with confidence and if Ireland gets success to go over Pakistan they’ll qualify for quarter-final but it will create problems for West Indies team to reach at quarterfinals. Currently Caribbean team is having 4 points in the points table and they are at fifth rank. They’ll play their final pool match against UAE tomorrow and it is expected that they will win and earn two points.
This will lead their points up to 6. Now Pakistan and West Indies will have equal points (this is the case when Ireland beats Pak). The story will go to net run rate, hence whose NET RR. will better tomorrow will play quarterfinals. It can be easy for Ireland to beat Pakistan if Irish captain wins toss and chose to bat first. Ireland put a total of 250+ or may 300 and ask Pakistan to chase it, it will be hard for Pak to chase it as they are weak while chasing the total.
Pakistan’s morale will be high after their tremendous victory over strong South Africa and will be desperate to get into quarterfinals with winning momentum. PAK has got fully fit squad at this momentum and we can expect the same playing XI for tomorrow’s clash that it was in previous match.
Ireland has been struggling with their seam bowling throughout the competition and they’ll look forward to get it over tomorrow. As per the news, we can see Ireland going with spinner Andy McBrine. Mooney and Dockrell have to bowl really well tomorrow against Pakistan. Let’s have a look at the probable playing XIs for both teams.
