The West Indies team has a specialty in the T20 format. But that is in the past.. Currently, they failed to qualify for the Super-12 in the T20 World Cup due to their defeat at the hands of Panikoonas. If you look at the players in the West Indies cricket team, you will see that they have the ability to hit big scores. If the team plays a T20 match, everyone expects a huge score. But in T20 World Cup 2022, the scene is reversed. Had to play qualifying rounds for Super-12. The West Indies team went home from the tournament after playing three matches at the group level and losing two of them. In the group stage matches on Friday 21st October, they suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of Ireland. After giving a shock to the West Indies, the young Ireland team entered the Super-12 of the T20 World Cup. It became the qualified team from Group-B. It is known that in the opening match of the T20 World Cup 2022, the Namibian team created a sensation by defeating the winner of the Asia Cup 2022, Sri Lanka. West Indies, who won the T20 World Cup title twice, this time they faced home in the qualifier round.
Nicholas Pooran-led West Indies suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of Ireland in a crucial match. Ireland, who performed all round, won by 9 wickets. Batting first, the West Indies team scored 146 runs for the loss of five wickets in the stipulated 20 overs. Brandon King remained unbeaten with 62 runs, Charles scored 24 runs, Odion Smith scored 19 runs and remained unbeaten. The West Indies team could not make a huge score as the Irish bowlers bowled hard. Among the Ireland bowlers, Delaney took 3 wickets, Barry and Simi Singh each took a wicket. Openers Paul Stirling and Andrew Balbirnie gave a good start to the Ireland team, which came into the ring with a target of 147 runs. With this, the Ireland team scored 73 runs in 7.3 overs. Ireland faced the West Indies with pacers like Alzari Joseph, Jason Holder and McCoy with ease.
In fact, everyone thought that it was impossible for Ireland to score 147 runs against the West Indies bowling. But it was made possible by Ireland’s batsmen. Paul Stirling scored 66 not out while Andrew Balbirnie scored 37 runs. Even after reaching Balbirnie Pavilion.. Ireland batsmen played fast. Lorcan Tucker remained unbeaten on 45 runs. Losing just one wicket, Ireland scored 150 runs in 17.3 overs to win.
Many sports personalities have reacted to the victory of the Ireland team against the West Indies team. Commentator Harsha Bogle responded on Twitter that Ireland played well, while former Indian cricketer Madan Lal said that for the first time West Indies did not qualify for the T20 World Cup Super 12.
West Indies first time not qualified for the World Cup. The players are happy playing T20 leagues all over the world but no pride playing for their own country. Very disappointing how Pooran has led the side #T20WorldCup2022

Well done, Ireland. That is another extraordinary result. But it is tinged with sadness at what has happened with the pioneers of T20 cricket. But c’est la vie.
