It will be Sri Lanka vs Ireland this June 25, 2023, at the Harare Sports Club, cricket fans around the world will tune in to watch the exciting match between Sri Lanka (SL) and Ireland (IRE) in the ICC World Cup Qualifier. This match will be a highly anticipated one as both teams are vying for final two spots in the CWC.

Since the two sides did not face off against one another in the Cricket World Cup Super League, the interesting meeting between Sri Lanka and Ireland in Group B of the Qualifier is all the more enticing. The two competed in two test matches in Galle. But it’s crucial to remember that the tour was originally intended for two ODIs, which were replaced by the second test.

Sri Lanka had the advantage in the red-ball series, but this clash is more competitive due to Ireland’s superiority in limited overs cricket and the neutral venue of Bulawayo.

Despite a low-scoring match between Oman and Sri Lanka, which the latter won by 10 wickets, the wicket is still good enough to bat on. On this surface, the spinners have more support, so the hitters must be more careful during middle overs.
