As expected, England started their World Cup campaign with a win, although they faced a tough fight in their opening match against Afghanistan. Ireland, on the other hand, suffered a massive nine-wicket defeat to Sri Lanka after an impressive first-round performance

He started well against Afghanistan, bowled them first and limited them to just 112 times. Sam Curran took five wickets in Afghanistan’s match and Ben Stokes and Mark Wood took two wickets each for England.

Paul Stirling made 34 passes in 25 balls and Harry Tactor in 42 balls. Made 45 passes but Ireland made only 128/8 while hitting first
The Sri Lankan batsmen extended their hand towards the goal and won with nine wickets and 30 balls. In the end, Gareth Delaney took the lone wicket for Ireland.
England are likely to have a big win over Ireland after their average performance against Afghanistan. They already lack a healthy net run rate and have faced strong opponents in the form of Australia, New Zealand and Sri Lanka in their last three matches. But Ireland will take something positive from their last and only T20I match against England in 2010, where they restricted their opponents to just 120 points before winning by rain.
The Melbourne Cricket Ground has a balanced surface that can assist batsmen and bowlers in white ball cricket. In the last game here, the surface was rough and there was little grass, which obviously helped the fast bowlers to get the new ball. In such a situation, the fans got to see another fierce clash between the bat and the ball on Wednesday.
