Canada will take on Ireland in the next game in their bid to qualify for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup next year. Canada have started their campaign on a bright note by winning 2 of their first 2 games in the qualifiers. While they defeated Jersey comprehensively in their first game, Nigeria had no answers to their bowling in the second one.
Ireland, on the other hand, have won 2 and lost 1 game they have played so far. They defeated Hong Kong comprehensively in their opening fixture but lost to the hosts UAE in the next game. Ireland bounced back in style by defeating Oman in their last game.
While Canada will try to keep their winning bandwagon going and register a hat-trick of wins, the men in green will try to defeat a strong opponent in Canada to reach the top of the table.
