Heinrich Malan is confident in his team

Heinrich Malan, the head coach of the Ireland cricket team, is confident in his team's ability to compete against the world's best as they gear up for their T20 World Cup opener against India in New York. Ireland finds themselves in Group A alongside India, Pakistan, Canada, and the tournament co-hosts, the United States.

Despite being ranked 10 places below India, Ireland has demonstrated their potential with recent victories over strong teams like Pakistan. Malan emphasised that their focus is not solely on the World Cup or facing top sides but on establishing a process and structure to consistently play good cricket.

In his pre-match press conference, Malan highlighted Ireland's capacity to play a high-quality brand of cricket when they adhere to their process effectively. Reflecting on past encounters with India, Malan expressed optimism about playing in unfamiliar conditions, believing that Ireland's preparations have equipped them well to face the challenges.

Acknowledging India's experience and formidable reputation, Malan emphasised the importance of meticulous preparation and identifying areas where Ireland can capitalise and make an impact against their opponents.

As they brace for the showdown against India, Malan remains hopeful that Ireland can leverage their strengths and capitalise on opportunities to make their mark on the tournament.
