The two-time T20 World Cup champion West Indies team has got an embarrassing farewell with the second defeat in the group matches. He was prevented from reaching the Super-12 by Ireland in his last group match by 9 wickets. The Windies team, who reached Australia with the dream of becoming champion for the third time under the captaincy of Nicholas Pooran, did not expect much, but Ireland created history by defeating them. Ireland have confirmed their place in the Super-12 by winning the match.
The Windies team, who came out to bat first in the match, had a very poor start. He got his first blow in the third over in the form of Meyers. After this, in the 5th over, the hero of the previous match, Charles went on to score just 24 runs. Today the players of Ireland were looking in a different style. His bowling was tremendous and the strong Windies batsmen had to yearn for every single run. This is the reason why the Caribbean players kept coming back and coming back to score runs fast.
Evin Lewis was also dismissed after scoring 13 runs, captain Nicholas Pooran’s bat also remained silent. He returned to the pavilion for 13 runs. After this, Roman Powell became the victim of Delany for 6 runs. Of course, Brendan King and Odeon Smith played some good shots in the end. King scored an unbeaten 62 runs in 48 balls, hitting 6 fours and a six, while Smith’s name was 19 not out in 12 balls. Delany took 3 wickets for Ireland.
