T20 WC: India aim for strong start against well-prepared Ireland

T20 WC: India aim for strong start against well-prepared Ireland

New York, June 4 (UNI) The echoes of past disappointments fade as cricket enthusiasts eagerly anticipate the dawn of a new chapter on the pitch. The stage is set in New York for the much-anticipated World Cup, offering a chance for redemption and glory, especially for Rohit Sharma and his resolute Men in Blue.
Group A showcases an eclectic mix of cricketing prowess, with India and Ireland poised for battle alongside formidable opponents like Pakistan, USA, and Canada. As preparations intensify, contrasting fortunes in practice matches add an air of unpredictability, with India's triumph over Bangladesh juxtaposed against Ireland's setback against Sri Lanka.
The Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York, a venue with just two matches under its belt, promises a balanced pitch. Cloudy weather is expected during the game, likely aiding pacers with additional movement. The pacers have claimed the majority of wickets here, with the pitch continuing to support bowlers in the middle and death overs, making high scores a challenging feat.
