Australia vs Ireland
T20 World Cup Super 12 Group 1 Prediction & Tips
Time: 31 Oct, 01:30 PM (IST)
Series: T20 World Cup Super 12 Group 1
Venue: The Gabba – Brisbane, Australia
- David Warner has scored one hundred and 24 half-centuries in this format and the opener is our pick for Australia’s highest run scorer against Ireland. With the ball, Josh Hazlewood has a strike rate of 14.00 in 2022 and he is well worth backing as Australia’s top wicket taker in this game.
- Opener Paul Stirling has a top score of 115 not out in IT20s and the small right-hander is a strong choice for Ireland’s highest run scorer against Australia. Josh Little took 2-16 against England and the left-arm pace bowler is our tip for Ireland’s top wicket taker in this clash.
- We recommend backing Josh Hazlewood to take over 1.5 wickets in this clash.
This match will be shown live on Sky Sports Cricket, Star Network, Fox Sports, ESPN and PTV.

Weather & Pitch Report:
Partly cloudy during the scheduled hours of this game but it will still be warm with temperatures above 25 degrees from start to finish.
There will be plenty of pace and carry for the quick bowlers on this pitch. Expect spinners to also enjoy bowling on this surface which will turn and bounce.
Four of the six IT20s played at the Gabba have been won by the team batting first. We predict that both skippers will want to bat first ahead of this match.

AUS Team News:
There has been an illness running through the Australia squad which saw Adam Zampa miss the win over Sri Lanka and forced keeper-batter Matthew Wade to travel to the ground separately ahead of the abandoned game against England. We expect Zampa to come back into the side for this game.
IRE Team News:
With their game against Afghanistan abandoned without a ball being bowled, all of Ireland’s batters and bowlers will be well-rested ahead of this clash. They beat England in their last match and we expect to see the same XI given the chance to defeat Australia in Brisbane.

With both teams seeing their last fixture rained off, the points on offer in this game have become even more crucial. We expect Ireland to cause Australia some problems but struggle to maintain their high level across the match. Overall, we are backing Australia to win.
Australia are favorites to beat Ireland at the odds.
AUS Key Players:
the attacking left-handed opener has scored only 20 runs from his last three IT20 innings but hit successives scores in the 70s the two previous innings.

the 22 year old quick bowler has had an impressive 2022 with a large number of strong performances. He dismissed Jos Buttler and Alex Hales against England.
