This is a bilateral series of two one day matches. The first match will held of 23rd of May while, second will be played on 26th May.
This series has great importance for the two sides and they will obviously looking to play well with every possible effort to show their potential. The Irish team is looking forward to get some valuable details from their strongest competitors and defiantly, the visitors would want to have a good start in such bouncing and seaming conditions where the batsmen always feel difficulties to manage their batting techniques.
Pakistan has not enjoyed their last visit to South Africa and got defeats in their one day and test series. Moreover, with a young and inexperienced group of players, the Misbah XI are required to consider this series seriously so that they can have better understanding and knowledge how to play on such bouncy pitches. This experience will help them to play efficiently in their upcoming tournament as well.
Ireland will use every possible ways to effectively charge on their opponents and will definitely take benefits if Pakistan steps into ground with less professional players. If so, it will be help for them to improve their international cricketing reputation as they are out and down for a long time and this matter is actually requiring some boost with their performances along with their rating.
According to the coach of Irish cricket team, Phil Simmons, this series is important for the continuation of their progress and this allows them to measure their capabilities against the world’s best cricket teams. He said that they are really grateful to the Pakistan’s Cricket Board to support them and providing a chance to enhance their cricketing abilities.
Even though both the teams have got inexperienced or less professional players, but still they are confident to knock. Ireland has got William Porterfield as their captain while George Dockrell, Trent Johnston, Tim Murtagh, Gary Wilson, John Mooney, Niall O’Brien and Andrew White are the key players for the team.
When it comes to Pakistani team, then they have got Mohammad Hafeez and Nasir Jamsheed at the top, both of them will be dangerous for all types of bowling attacks due to which it is important for the bowlers to play cleverly. The middle order comprises of strong batsmen Shoaib Malik, Kamran Akmal, Umar Amin, Misbah ul Haq and Asad Shafiq. Imran Farhat is also expecting to get a spot in the top order as he has played commendably during South Africa’s tour.
On the other hand, the bowling department of Pakistan has got all ingredients despite the absence of senior fast bowler Umar Gul. Mohammad Irfan and Junaid Khan are consistently playing brilliantly since their tour of India. The experience in spinning may help Saeed Ajmal to handle the Irish side effectively. The new bowlers named Ehsan Adil and Asad Ali will also be getting opportunities to cement their spots for the upcoming Champions Trophy.
