Adelaide: Irish team captain William Porter Field has said that Irish success against West Indian should not be called as upset.
Talking to media after victory against West Indies, Irish Captain Porter Field said that he determined his team could achieve the target and we proved that. He said that the victory against West Indies is not an upset and we wanted to get two points by winning every match. He emphasized that he personally did not like the word ‘upset’ for small teams’ success in cricket. Ireland had to chase a target of 305 runs during the match which the Irish team recovered in 46th over after a loss of six wickets and this was the first time that any team could succeed in chasing the required target during recent World Cup 2015.
Meanwhile, West Indian All Rounder Darren Sammy said after West Indies defeat that his team has no more room to repeat that performance in World Cup. He said that if we continued to play poor cricket then we will not be able to stay here long. He said that West Indian team was defeated due to poor fielding. West Indian team will play its second match against Pakistan on Saturday.
