AUS vs IRE Probable Top Performers
Probable Best Batter
The swashbuckling southpaw was the player of the tournament in the last T20 World Cup. He has an incredible record on home turf and is expected to be the anchor in this Australian line-up, otherwise filled with power hitters. If Australia is to get to a competitive total, he must bat through the innings, and for that reason, he could well be the top scorer for this match.

Probable Best Bowler
The left-arm quick from Ireland has the ability to swing the ball and rally the batsmen with his short balls. He has been in decent touch in this tournament and could be Ireland’s go-to bowler for this match in Gabba.

AUS vs IRE Prediction- Who Will Win Today’s Match Between AUSTRALIA and IRELAND
- Matthew Wade and Adam Zampa, who were out with Covid-19 will most probably return and take the field against Ireland.
- The trio of Cummins, Starc, and Hazlewood are yet to click in this tournament, with Pat Cummins looking like a complete misfit for bowling the death overs. Kane Richardson may replace him in the eleven.
- Irish batting which is packed with power hitters is quite volatile. They can win you matches on their day, and on the other days, they could tumble like a pack of cards.
- Joshua Little has been in fine form and he will be key to Ireland’s chances in this match.
- The last time these two sides faced off against each other in a T20I match, Australia defeated Ireland by 7 wickets.
