The 20th match of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 will feature England and Ireland as the two sides lock horns at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. The venue became special after India vs Pakistan clash which concluded on Sunday, October 23, and the audience would look to see a similar cut-throat competition.

England will be the favorites to win the game, given their current form in T20I cricket. Ireland, on the other hand, worked very hard to make a place in the second stage of the tournament. But they lost their first fixture against Sri Lanka, and are already trailing. England is backed with a win from the previous game against Afghanistan and would look to continue with the winning combination.

Pitch Report

It is well known that the Melbourne pitch is good for both batting and bowling. The spinners won't get many nibbles in the initial phase, but the pacers will get a solid bounce. The previous game at this venue ended in the final ball thriller between India and Pakistan. The captain winning the toss would look to chase so as to utilize the pitch advantages.

Probable Playing XIs for ENG vs IRE


Jos Buttler (c & wk), Alex Hales, Dawid Malan, Ben Stokes, Harry Brook, Moeen Ali, Liam Livingstone, Sam Curran, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood


Paul Stirling, Andrew Balbirnie (c), Lorcan Tucker (wk), Harry Tector, Curtis Campher, George Dockrell, Gareth Delany, Mark Adair, Simi Singh, Barry McCarthy, Joshua Little

Probable Top Performers from ENG vs IRE

Probable best batter: Alex Hales

Ever since his return to England’s international setup, Alex Hales has been in tremendous form. He has won multiple games for England in recent times, and he will be the one to lookout for. Given how friendly the track is, Hales would be at his best.

Probable best bowler: Sam Curran

The track at Melbourne is pacer friendly, and after seeing Sam Curran’s performance in the previous game against Afghanistan, he surely will be the pick of the bowlers. He became the first-ever England cricketer to scalp a five-wicket haul in T20Is, and the team would expect him to repeat similar heroics.
