Okay, here we go then, the first match is Australia vs Ireland and the funny thing is if we go by the rankings Ireland is the team to beat. But, everyone knows it would be a surprise win if Ireland manages to pull it off. They have beaten Bangladesh in a t20 match and two top teams in 50 over cricket - Pakistan and England. So do you think we could see an upset today?

Well there is a possibility that Ireland might upset Australians but they have to be too good to realize this things. Australians in any format are a formidable team and cannot be taken lightly. But with the team boosting of new players, the Aussies are really going to face a tough challenge from Irish team who have earlier shocked good teams. What say?

Yes, especially if Ireland bowl well since Australian batting has not been the best in recent times. Ireland can certainly chase down a moderate total since they have good batsmen and bat deep.
