England wants to whitewash Ireland
The hosts England wants to whitewash visiting Ireland by winning the third and final match as well as the first two ODIs. In addition to the whitewash, England will be able to win the first Super League series of the ICC ODI World Cup 3-0.
The International Cricket Council (ICC), the governing body of world cricket, has introduced new rules for the bilateral ODI series for the 2023 ODI World Cup. That is the World Cup Super League.
Playing in the Super League for the next three years will give you a chance to play directly in the World Cup if you can stay in the top seven in the rankings. The teams outside the top seven will have to play in the qualifying round.
The World Cup Super League kicks off on July 30 (Thursday) with a bilateral series between England and Ireland. England secured the series win by winning the first match by 6 wickets and the second ODI by 4 wickets. This time Ian Morgan’s team has a chance to whitewash the Irish.
England opener Johnny Bairstow wants to take advantage of the whitewash. “After a long absence, ODI cricket is back with this series. We have done well in returning cricket. Our goal has been met. This time we also want to win the last match of the series. I want to whitewash in Ireland. ‘
Ireland could not resist England in any of the first two matches of the series. They lost the match due to the failure of the batsmen. However, debutant Curtis Camper was brilliant in both the matches. After scoring an unbeaten 59 in the first ODI, he scored 7 off 6 balls in the second match.
Meanwhile, Camper wants to taste victory in the last match. “We didn’t have a team performance in the series,” he said. That’s why we lost the series. We still have the opportunity to showcase our performances. Hopefully, the whole team will be able to do something good in the third match.
