They are also the current World Cup holders, having won the tournament in 2011. The New Zealand national rugby team, nicknamed the All Blacks, represents New Zealand in men’s international rugby union. The team has won the last two Rugby World Cups, in 2011 and 2015 as well as the inaugural tournament in 1987. They have a 77% winning record in test match rugby, and are the only international side with a winning record against every opponent. Ireland Ireland is a relative newcomer to international rugby, having only played their first test match in 1875. However, they have been steadily improving since then and are now one of the top teams in the world. They finished 3rd in the 2015 Rugby World Cup and were runners-up in the Six Nations Championship in 2018. The Ireland national rugby team competes annually in the Six Nations Championship with England, France, Scotland and Wales.

The New Zealand had a bomb start to their World Cup campaign. They are  on the top of the table in group no 1 but lost their recent match against England.   They won their first match against Australia with a big margin and due to that they had a great Run rate while their second game against Afghanistan got washed out. The New Zealand team is full of brilliant players. Their captain, Williamson, although there have been some criticism of his recent performance especially in the T20I format is a calm and cool minded sportsperson.

Jimmy Neesham is one beast of a player as he is an all-rounder but recently, he has been little out of touch but he can hit the ball finely as he has some serious strength while Daryl Mitchell is another man who can bat magnificently while Finn Allen, who replaced Guptil in the playing 11, played a ferocious innings of 42 runs on just 16 balls. He is proving to be a great aggressive opener. Devon Conway showcased his class in the match against Australia and scored 92 unbeaten runs on 58 balls and earned the MoM award. On the other hand, Glenn Philips has been magnificent until now. He proved to be a fine batsman who is a great fielder too. In pace bowling, they have the likes of Trent Boult, who needs no introduction at all, Adam Milne, Tim Southee. All these pace bowlers will be crucial for New Zealand as everyone is aware of the fact that Australian pitches favor the pacers while Santner carries the spin bowling attack

Ireland is in a fragile position currently in group 1. They are on the 5th spot currently. Ireland defeated England while their match against Afghanistan got washed out due to rain. They currently have 3 points but not a good run rate.

 Their win against England in the recent match must have boosted their confidence to the next level. They won by 5 runs due to DLS method when rain interrupted the play and the match couldn’t proceed further. The explosive starting overs saved Ireland that day. They have a power-hitter as their opener, Paul Stirling, who is a wonderful slogger of the ball and showcased his worthiness in the last match of World cup qualifiers against West Indies by scoring an unbeaten and match winning 68 runs.  Another prominent batter from the Irish side is Andy Balbirnie who is the captain of the Ireland team who scored 64 unbeaten runs against England. Lorcan Tucker who has been quite impressive since the tournament started. While in the last year, Craig Young, Andrew Mcbrine and Mark Adair have performed exceptionally in the bowling department.


New Zealand are looking favorites. They have a balanced and an experienced side comparatively. Moreover they’ll be trying their best to win this match to confirm their spot in the semi-final.


Though both teams have made it to the World Cup, there is a clear winner when it comes to these two countries’ T-shirts. Ireland’s shirt looks like a plain green polo that was bought at a discount store, while New Zealand’s features a more intricate design with a silver fern (the national symbol) in the center.
