The Big Picture
Has everyone caught their breath after Bangalore's last match? It was an epic tie and the remaining games in the tournament will struggle to match it. Still, this group looks set to provide most of the intrigue over who will make the quarter-finals because Ireland are good enough to upset one of the big teams.
They had a great chance against Bangladesh until the batting failed to chase down 206 but now have England in their sights. While the cricket rivalry between the two countries has yet to reach the level seen in rugby, for Ireland this is a massive contest where they'll be desperate to make a statement and cause a shock.
England will need to be on their guard and will want an improvement in the bowling department which, apart from Graeme Swann against Netherlands and the immense Tim Bresnan against India, has been below par. Lifting themselves after the events on Sunday won't be easy. Ireland have come close to claiming their scalp before. In the hangover of the 2009 Ashes, England hung on for a two-run victory in Belfast and at the World Twenty20 last year, Ireland believed they had a good chance of chasing down 120 before the rain came in Guyana.

Ireland are a leading light among the Associates, showing what is possible with a well-structured game and a core of experienced players. A number of mini-battles will be worth watching, including Ed Joyce against the England attack, the Warwickshire duel of Boyd Rankin bowling against Ian Bell and Jonathan Trott, and the vastly talented left-arm spinner George Dockrell.

Form guide

(completed matches, most recent first)

England TWLLL
Ireland LWLLW

Watch out for...

George Dockrell will be bowling against potential future team-mates on Wednesday. The 18-year-old left-arm spinner is one of the finest Associate bowlers in the world and has earned himself a county contract with Somerset. The talk is that the England set-up has also taken note of his talent. He showed what he is capable of with the superb figures of 2 for 23 against Bangladesh - a team that should play spin pretty well - and on his Twenty20 international debut he bowled his four overs for 19 against England. His contest against Kevin Pietersen, should Dockrell open the bowling, will be fascinating, but he'll be happy with any scalps to his name.
How long will experience carry Paul Collingwood along? The early stages of his World Cup campaign have not been disastrous by any means - an important innings against Netherlands and a few useful overs - but his wild hack against Zaheer Khan was a disappointing shot. England will stick with him, as they so often have, but a player batting in the top five and supposedly a key bowler needs to produce more than bit-part performances. If England play a five-man attack, are Collingwood's cutters so vital? If not, Ravi Bopara is waiting in the wings.

Team news

England are waiting to see how Stuart Broad responds to training after his stomach bug before declaring him fit to face Ireland and that decision may not come until the morning of the game. If Broad has recovered, James Anderson's place will be under threat after two shocking matches against Netherlands and India. There also remains the wider issue of balance after Michael Yardy came into the side against India, but the middle looked light on hitting power.

England (possible): 1 Andrew Strauss (capt), 2 Kevin Pietersen, 3 Jonathan Trott, 4 Ian Bell, 5 Paul Collingwood, 6 Matt Prior (wk), 7 Michael Yardy, 8 Tim Bresnan, 9 Stuart Broad, 10 Graeme Swann, 11 Ajmal Shahzad

William Porterfield, the Ireland captain, confirmed they had a fully fit squad to select from but the side they played against Bangladesh was probably the best eleven. It's down to the batsmen to put up a better showing, although Alex Cusack is another all-round option should they want to make a change.

Ireland (possible): 1 William Porterfield (capt), 2 Paul Stirling, 3 Ed Joyce, 4 Niall O'Brien (wk), 5 Andrew White, 6 Kevin O'Brien, 7 Andre Botha, 8 John Mooney, 9 Trent Johnston, 10 George Dockrell, 11 Boyd Rankin

Pitch and conditions

There was a distinct tinge of green to the pitch the day before the game and the bowlers will hope that's still evident come match day. If not, expect another batting paradise which, coupled with a fast outfield, should lead to another bat-dominated match.

Stats and trivia



These two teams met at the 2007 World Cup in Guyana (http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/match/247484.html), when England won by 48 runs. They could select five players from that match if Ravi Bopara is recalled, while Ireland can boast eight survivors although one, Ed Joyce, has now switched sides.



If Jonathan Trott scores 64 he will equal Viv Richards and Kevin Pietersen as the fastest player to 1000 runs in one-day internationals. (http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/content/records/283174.html)
After his career-best 5 for 48 against India, Tim Bresnan needs four more wickets to reach 50 in ODIs, while Trent Johnston needs two to reach the same milestone


Quotes
"He's a lot better today. He's going to practice, and he'll be keen to get out there and bowl some overs in the nets. Broad brings us a bit of height advantage, he just gets that extra bounce. He's good at the death as well, and in the Powerplays. He's a lot more experienced than myself or Ajmal."
Tim Bresnan hopes Stuart Broad will be back to boost the England attack

"The day after the game and that night the lads were pretty gutted. It's no lie, anyone that loses a game like that you're going to be pretty down, but that's professional sport."
William Porterfield admits it took a while to get over the Bangladesh defeat

I want Ireland to lose very badly. In their every success they become vocal against us and try to say "we are better" . who ever they'll beat, they will end up saying "we are better than Bangladesh"

I hate Ireland for this and I can see Afghan's got similar attitude too.

aren't we are the ones to blame for that?..our constant failure to produce goods have given them the power to raise their voice...if we can produce good results consistency from now on they will stop...it has started in the NZ series..now lets show the world what we can do in the world cup..and after that show consistency..

we r the ones who needs to shut our critics..they wont shut themselves

England win the toss and bat. A good toss for Andrew Strauss to win, and Stuart Broad is back from illness in place of Ajmal Shahzad. A reprieve for James Anderson, who went for 91 against India. Gary Wilson is back in the side for Ireland, in place of Andre Botha, who bowled well against Bangladesh.

England 1 Andrew Strauss (capt), 2 Kevin Pietersen, 3 Jonathan Trott, 4 Ian Bell, 5 Paul Collingwood, 6 Matt Prior (wk), 7 Michael Yardy, 8 Tim Bresnan, 9 Stuart Broad, 10 Graeme Swann, 11 James Anderson.

Ireland 1 William Porterfield (capt), 2 Paul Stirling, 3 Ed Joyce, 4 Niall O'Brien (wk), 5 Alex Cusack, 6 Kevin O'Brien, 7 Gary Wilson, 8 John Mooney, 9 Trent Johnston, 10 George Dockrell, 11 Boyd Rankin

This again proves that our batting has to improve a lot to give us a shot at the top spots. This is how you bat. Take none or little chances, bat without pressure, be patient, take single, keep your wickets, go after the bad balls.

Tehsin
March 2, 2011, 06:13 AM
There's that. There's also the fact that it took me less then an hour to go through the immigration and security in the US. They are ICC officials and BCB should have taken care of their immigration. However, we all know how well BCB ad Kyazoonga managed the match ticket issue.

Extremely over the top reaction there, bro. Totally uncalled for. I would be very livid too if I had to loiter about at the airport for TWO hours and I have a muslim name and a beard. And I don't think Lloyd fits the image of a typical 'terrorist'. We need to acknowledge first that we do have widespread mismanagement and incompetency across the board back home. Just think about the WC ticket fiasco. Bumble is widely known for his tounge and cheek comments and lets not forget he is a Lancastrian. Cut him some slacks and take his words with a pinch of salt. :-D

Bangladesh already beat Ireland, if Ireland beat England, it will only be good for Bangladesh chances.

I dont see Ireland qualifying, but I see them making upsets to deny WI and England 'easy' points

there are other situation if IRE wins this.

IRE will win against NED, and if they beat WI then they will be equal to us provided we beat WI and NED.

there is game between ENG and WI. either of the team is gonna win there .... so u cant get both ENG and WI loosing.

if IRE was beaten today a win against WI would have been enough, but now an IRE win makes thing complex.

Broad to KJ O'Brien, OUT, heartbreak for Ireland! It's a run out that breaks the stand. O'Brien blocked hard to point, Cusack set off for one before turning back to save his partner. The throw came into Broad who under-armed onto the stumps to beat Cusack's dive. Brilliant example of a supportive innings from Cusack, just calmly gave O'Brien the strike and finished it by sacrificing himself

Even if England wins now, it's not gonna hugely change the fact that their bowling attack is horrible. They gave away 292 against Netherland, 338 against India and now struggling to defend an odd 330 runs against Irish. From this I can conclude that Bangladesh should be able to score 250+ against then and unlike the other suckish bowling attack, we can very well defend or chase that in Chittagong which will be a spin attack

If we do not beat WI, there is no point of talking about QF. With 4 points we cannot get there regardless of who IR beats. But if we do beat WI, get should get 6 points. If IR beats WI as well, then it will be WI and NE who gets out for sure. Then it will come to NRR between us and IR (given we lose to Eng, if we win, no need for NRR). In that case, we can get a good RR against NE to get to quater final.
