The 32nd match of the ICC Men's T20 WC Qualifier 2019 will be played between Ireland and Jersey at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium Nursery 1 in Abu Dhabi.

Ireland are placed at the fourth spot in group B of the ICC Men's T20 World Cup Qualifier 2019. The team has won 2 and lost 2 out of their 4 matches. With 4 points, Ireland have a net run rate of +0.265 and have not performed as per expectations.

The team last faced Canada and conceded 156 runs despite opener Paul Stirling getting a start with 23 runs, Harry Tector scoring 22 and Stuart Thompson 28. The team fell short by 10 runs and lost the match.

Paul Stirling is the top-scorer for Ireland and the second-highest in the tournament with 168 runs from 4 matches at an average of 42. Stirling has the highest of 72 and has scored at a strike rate of almost 135. Mark Adair is the team's highest wicket-taker with 5 wickets from four games.

They will be up against Jersey who were beaten by Hong Kong in their last match. Jersey were placed at the third spot in group B of the ICC Men's T20 World Cup Qualifier 2019 points table before their clash against Hong Kong but slid down after their 8-run defeat.

All rounder Ben Stevens was the top-scorer for the team with 39 runs in the last match while Jonty Jenner and Corey Bisson also chipped in with 27 and 30 respectively. Benjamin Ward picked up three wickets for the team while Stevens claimed two but that was not enough for Jersey to emerge victorious.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

Ireland- Paul Stirling, Kevin O Brien, Harry Tector, Gary Wilson, Lorcan Tucker, Mark Adair, Gareth Delany, George Dockrell, David Delany, Boyd Rankin, Stuart Thompson

Jersey- Nick Ferraby, Harrison Carlyon, Ben Stevens, Jonty Jenner, Nick Greenwood, Benjamin Ward, Corey Bisson, Dominic Blampied, Anthony Hawkins-Kay, Jake Dunford, Charles Perchard
