London, June 9 (ANI): Ireland’s match-winner Niall O’Brien says he cannot wait to take on World Champions India on Wednesday after dumping Bangladesh out of the World Twenty20 with a shock six-wicket win at Trent Bridge to qualify for the Super Eights stage.

“The world champions is obviously going to be a very difficult game but, you know, if you can’t get up and enjoy a game against the world champions who can you get up for?” the New York Daily News quoted him, as saying.

“We’ve said all along we’ve got to enjoy our cricket. If you can’t go out for 20 overs in the field and run around with your mates and then go in and try and slog as many sixes as you can, what are you going to enjoy?

“We’ve got to give it our best shot on Wednesday. There’ll be nothing left on the pitch, you can guarantee that.” (ANI)
