Expression of Ireland its biggest challenge
03 March 2015 Canberra
Start time 14:30 local (03:30 GMT)
Predictable tournament may have developed somewhat you can tell that you expected to read that. Ireland also rebelled against the trend in Australia chasing a target difficult successfully under the lights against United Arab Emirates one of the two activities successful in that part of the draw (the other is the India against UAE when the lights were not necessary in Perth).
Victories over the West Indies and the United Arab Emirates have left Ireland seem good for the knockouts with half of their matches still to play to know about their opposition strongest in the group is coming. This begins in Canberra where he will face a South African side sufficiently recovered from a defeat to the India and encouraged by their performance throughout the West Indies.
Both sides cleaned their own ways to the quarters with a victory in this match and South Africa will be strong Favorites to get that. May even be considered its hiccups for the competition since they dominated UWI although with a reverse injury JP Duminy and two reserves in the starting eleven.
This action allowed him to almost all squadron members South Africa, except spinner arm left Aaron Phangiso to find ways and will want nothing more than to give this new to New Zealand especially if they hit cruise control when they arrive there and a win over Ireland will allow that.
For Ireland the defeat does not mean disaster but the surprise would be another shock to the global order. It would also remain as the only unbeaten team along with New Zealand and the India.
Vernon Philander and JP Duminy are still recovering from strains from the ischiotibial muscles and lateral, respectively and South Africa is likely to take the cautious approach on its availability. That be supposed to give Rilee Rossouw and Kyle Abbott another opportunity when both performed impressively against West Indies. South Africa can still decide that Allrounder use Farhaan Behardien and Wayne Parnell candidates.

Ireland has no reason to alter a strong batting alignment and probably stay with the same attack used against West Indies. Alex Cusack was Andy McBrine and it is possible that they want the extra seamer instead of slower bowling player given the surface.

Pitch and conditions
Though Afghanistan made run scoring look as hard work in this place the surface was Chris Gayle sacked 200 races and a week ago. Zimbabwe replied with a total just shy of 300. A low tone and fast outfield should provide a lot more runs the tournament bids farewell to the Australian capital. The warm climate of 29 degrees is forecast without rain.
