Ireland’s performance against SA was not good enough now against Australia what will happen? CA Young Irish bowler took three wickets in 10 overs with 81 runs and KJ O’Brien took two wickets in ten overs with 66 runs.
All other bowlers had not done so good job that’s why SA scored 354 runs against them. Scoring high total was the goal because putting pressure on Australia was a good strategy but today if Australia bat first and they performed the same as SA then it will be an interesting contest.

South Africa showed there are plenty of runs in the Benoni surface, although by the end of the day it had slowed up and was aiding JP Duminy’s off-breaks. A similar pattern can be expected on Tuesday. The weather forecast is fine. Australia named their playing XI on the eve of the match, with right-arm fast bowler Daniel Worrall set to make his ODI debut.
Niall O’Brien, who was forced to sit out the match against South Africa because he slipped and hit his head in the bathroom before the game, has been ruled out of the Australia game with a concussion.* Andy McBrine is a possible inclusion for Ireland should they wish to change things up after the heavy loss to South Africa.
