Ireland vs USA Match Prediction
Neither team has managed to secure a spot in the super six round of the tournament, and will be now looking to finish the tournament on a high. Both Ireland and the USA put up disappointing performances, and lack strength in both their bowling and batting departments. But given that Ireland have won all three of their previous ODIs against the USA, we expect them to win this game.
