Colombo: Australia sailed to a seven wicket win over Ireland in their opening Group B match of the World T20 on Wednesday. They reached the target of 124 in 15.1 overs.
Opting to bat first after winning the toss on a Sri Lankan wicket is more often than not the right call. And William Poterfield of Ireland called it.
But the decision seem to have backfired as the Aussie bowlers struck three quick blows to put Ireland on the backfoot.
