T20 World Cup: Australia reaches second spot after win against Ireland, THIS is what captain said on chances for semis

Brisbane: Australia marked a stupendous win against Ireland on Monday and with that, they moved directly to the second position on the table.

Earlier, due to their game against England ending in no results had pushed then on fourth position but now they can keep their hopes alive for semis.

After the win of Australia, captain Aaron Finch stated his experience of playing against Ireland and said, “It wasn’t the easiest wicket, it was a lot slower than what we expected. They changed their pace really well and bowled a lot of cutters early in the innings, it was hard to get a rhythm and we did well to get 180. Not at all (felt the pressure). The support from the change room and support staff has been unbelievable. T20 is a high risk game, sometimes you get it off the middle and sometimes you don’t. Like I said, when they went to try and bowl really wide it was easier and tough when they took the pace off.”

Talking about their chances to reach semis, he said, “It doesn’t look bad at the moment but let’s see how it goes after the scan. Very hopeful (of our chances).”
