The Indian women cricket team will be looking to make it a hattrick of wins on Thursday when they take on Ireland in their third group B encounter of the ICC Women World T20 semi-final. Looking to maintain their 100% winning record and seal their berth in the semi-finals of the tournament, the Indian women will be looking to put in another spectacular and scintillating performance in Guyana come Thursday.
Having blown apart heavyweights New Zealand and arch-rivals Pakistan with some magnificent, well-rounded performances, India goes into the match as heavy favorites against an Ireland side who are yet to register a win in this edition of the T20 world cup. The Harmanpreet Kaur lead unit will be eyeing another dominant display come match day in a bid to register themselves as title contenders.
India has ticked all the right boxes so far in the tournament with contributions coming in from all players. While Harmanpreet Kaur has been in a rich vein of form with the bat, in bowling, off-break bowlers Dylan Hemalatha and leg-spinner Poonam Yadav have shone with 10 wickets among them so far to blow apart teams.
Against Ireland, the likes of Smriti Mandhana and others will be looking to get themselves among the runs as well to find their footing in the tournament. An area of concern for the Indians has been the pace department and come matchday, the fast bowling unit will be looking to finally come good for the sub-continent giants.
While India, on one hand, goes into the match in high spirits, the Irish face an uphill task with another unfavorable result meaning the end of their tournament. Having failed to light up the tournament, Ireland who sit bottom of the group do have Clare Shillington, Laura Delaney, Kim Garth, and Isobel Joyce who if click on the day, can very well pose a few problems for India.
The match which begins at 8:30 pm IST will be telecasted on Star Sports 1, Hindi/HD in both English and Hindi commentary. The match can also be viewed on the Hotstar app. Follow our live Twitter feed for all minute by minute updates of the match.
