Ireland cricket team qualified for the ICC T20I World Cup 2020 after they topped Group B in the ongoing qualifiers of the World Cup. Jersey’s 14-run victory over Oman aided Ireland in qualifying for the T20I fiesta in Australia next year.
Ireland is joined in next Friday’s semi-finals by Papua New Guinea, who have enjoyed a wonderful tournament, topping Group A ahead of the Netherlands, Namibia, and Scotland, who will all get their chance to make it to Australia through the playoffs with four other spots on offer for the remaining six teams.
All the six teams will join Sri Lanka and Bangladesh in group stage matches scheduled in October 2020. The eight teams will be divided into the 2 groups and the top 2 teams from each group will join the top-eight ranked sides in the Super 12 tournament.
This is another historical achievement from the British-Origin state. Ireland has been part of the previous T20I world cups (2009, 2010, 2012). This is another chance for the country to make its name in the cricketing world with some extravagant performances.
