Rain has become a hindrance to the match between India and Ireland in South Africa. While Ireland was batting, after the second ball of the 8th over, it rained with strong winds. Due to this, the organizers stopped the match. Currently, Ireland has scored 54 runs in 8.2 overs. The team needs 102 runs off 70 balls to win.
As if the sun was shining on the ground, it was flooded with windy rain. The players left the field in a hurry. If the rain does not stop then the Duckworth-Lewis procedure will be implemented.
According to DLS, India will win this match. According to DLS, Ireland needed 59 runs in 8.2 overs and the team stopped at 54 runs. Another five runs away from victory. Will the match continue if it rains? If the rain does not stop within the match time, will the overs be played? That will be clear soon.
Meanwhile, Ireland lost two wickets in the first over when they came to bat in the first over. Amy Hunter drives towards cover point on the first ball of Renuka Singh Thakur’s first over. Hunter, who took the first run first, ran out while trying to take the second run. Jemima Rodrigues’ super throw made her run out. In the fifth ball of the same over, Renaka clean bowled Prendergast.
Opener Lewis and captain Laura Deal helped Ireland, who lost two crucial wickets in the first over. Both faced the Indian bowlers effectively. In the fourth over bowled by Vastrakar, Lewis and Laura hit a boundary each. The same scene was repeated in Deepti Sharma’s bowling. At the end of six overs, Ireland scored 44 runs for two wickets.
Vastrakar bowled the third ball wide in the 8th over of the innings. Rain has also been added to the gales that have been blowing for a while. With this, the players of both teams left the field. By then Ireland’s score was 54 runs. According to Duckworth Lewis, Ireland are five runs away from victory.
