CAN vs IRE: Match Preview, Pitch Report and Dream 11 Prediction for Match 13 of T20 World Cup 2024

In June 2021, ICC approved their future tours programme (FTP) for the years 2023-2031. The announcement of a new format with 20 teams assured fans that the World Cup in the shortest format won’t just be a big team affair.

A dozen games into the tournament and we’ve witnessed a 3rd highest run chase, 3rd ever Super over & PNG taking Windies’ 137 run chase till 19th and above all the Super Upset of the tournament USA defeating Pakistan in Super over, With 9 non-test playing nations and 28 games more to go another upset of the same level can be expected. Hence, fans should not keep their eyes away from any fixture irrespective of the on-paper strength of side. This brings us to the game no. 13, where Ireland faces Canada.

Ireland, who came into this tournament as a middle ranked team is placed in a critical group alongside Pakistan and India. They’re not expected to qualify for Super 8 but an expectation for taking the qualification scenarios of this group to the last game can be made. In order to do so, they must win their games against USA & Canada.

Canada on the other hand felt the wrath of the USA’s clinical batting at Dallas in what was the first game of the tournament.

With the other 2 games against India & Pakistan, this might be the last chance for Canada to come close to a victory in their t20 World Cup campaign.

Probable Playing XI

Ireland: Andrew Balbirinie, Paul Stirling(c), Lorcan Tucker(wk), Harry Tector, Curtis Campher, George Dockrell, Gareth Delany, Benjamin White/Ross Adair, Barry McCarthy, Joshua Little, Mark Adair

Ireland can possibly add an extra batsman to their lineup in place of a bowler given the excessive bowling-friendly nature of the New York track.

Canada: Aaron Johnson, Navneet Dhaliwal, Pargat Singh, Nicholas Kirton, Shreyas Movva(wk), Dilpreet Singh, Dillon Heylinger, Saad Zafar(c), Nikhil Dutta, Kaleem Sana, Jeremy Gordon.

Pitch Report

The Nassau County New York track has been “the” topic of discussion at the tournament so far. India dismantled Ireland for a mere 96 while South Africa also didn’t let Sri Lanka cross 77. Ireland’s exciting pace attack can be the decisive factor of the game as 18 out of 26 wickets on this venue have been taken by the fast medium/fast bowlers.

Players To Watch Out For

Joshua Little

The 24-years-young left-arm pace sensation from Ireland has now raised a name that attracts expectations. Little holds a large capability to run through batting lineups in a matter of spell.

Rohit Sharma’s aggressive batting in the first game didn’t allow Little to get a hold of the pitch’s assistance in his spell but against a team like Canada, Little can lit things off like the likes of Nortje & Bumrah have done so far.

Paul Stirling

4th highest all-time run scorer in the format with an experience of 140+ games, captain Paul Stirling is struggling with a cold phase in his t20I career. With the highest score of just 36 and an average of 17 in 9 T20Is in 2024, Paul Stirling can do much more justice to his reputation as a t20 opener.

A player of his status must necessarily stand up for his country when the biggest stage arrives. A player of his status must definitely have something to showcase in this situation and can be expected to score big in the game.
