Ireland is the only team whose 2 bowlers took hat-tricks in T20 World Cup, India’s first match is against this team


New Delhi. Although the Ireland team has never been able to advance beyond the second round in the T20 World Cup so far, but it has such an achievement to its name, which is not even in the account of the big teams. The Irish team has been a part of this big tournament since 2009 and in 2024 it will participate in the T20 World Cup for the 8th time. The Ireland team (Ireland Cricket Team) has been placed in Group ‘A’ along with India, Pakistan, Canada and America. India has to start its campaign on June 5 with a match against Ireland (India Vs Ireland). Talking about the T20 World Cup, the Irish team has won 7 out of its 25 matches so far while it has faced defeat in 15. Three matches of the team have been inconclusive.

As a team, Ireland may not have lived up to expectations, but in terms of individual performance, it has such achievements to its name that even a great team cannot achieve. In the history of ICC T20 World Cup, Ireland is the only team whose two bowlers have registered hat-tricks in the tournament. No other team participating in the tournament, including ICC’s other test playing nations, has been able to achieve this feat. Not only this, no bowler from teams like India, Pakistan, West Indies, New Zealand, Bangladesh and Afghanistan has been able to take a hat-trick in this important tournament so far.
