At the Bellerive Oval, the West Indies and Ireland will play a winner-takes-all game in the 11th Group Stage match of the current T20 World Cup. Since each team in the group already has two points, the winner of this game will move on to the Super 12 round of the tournament.
Both the Windies and Ireland are still in the tournament because they won their previous games in impressive ways. Great bowling helped the West Indies beat Zimbabwe easily, but Curtis Campher’s amazing batting saved Ireland from losing.
Even though Nicholas Pooran’s West Indies were expected to move on, they lost badly to Scotland in their first game, and now they need to beat Ireland by a big margin in their last game to move on.

Pitch Report: IRE vs. WI
The surface at Bellerive Oval is one of the best places to hit in the country because batters can get a lot of runs. Since the outfield is so fast at this venue, it will be hard for the bowlers to keep set batters from getting on base. The pitch stays the same, and the team that wins the toss will probably choose to go after the ball as predicted by the UK time
Game 11 will determine whether or not the West Indies and Ireland qualify for the Super 12 tournament. However, according to a forecast made by The UK Time, West Indies will prevail in the match that’s taking place today.
