IRE vs NED Tips, Stats & Team for Today Match Prediction
Match: IRE vs NED T20 Match Prediction
Time: 18 October, 03:30 PM (IST)
Venue: ICC Academy – Dubai, United Arab Emirates
- Opening batter Max O’Dowd is our tip for the Netherlands’ highest run scorer in this game. He has a top score of 133 not-out in this format. With the ball, Fred Klaassen had an excellent white ball summer in England and is our recommendation for the Netherland’s top wicket taker against Ireland.
- Paul Stirling is a powerful and aggressive hitter at the top of the order for Ireland. He is a strong choice for Ireland’s highest run scorer against the Netherlands. Josh Little’s performances have been building since arriving in the region ahead of the tournament. He is our pick for Ireland’s top wicket taker in this match.
- There is plenty of pressure on him at the top of the order but it never seems to phase him. We are predicting Paul Stirling to deliver with the bat and take the Player of The Match Award.
Live Streaming: Star Sports will show the game in India, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, Nepal, Bangladesh and Pakistan. Sky Cricket in the UK and Willow TV in the USA will broadcast the match. Foxtel and Kayo will show the match in Australia.
Weather & Pitch Report:
If the IPL fixtures in Abu Dhabi are anything to go by, expect a good battle between bat and ball with both spinners and pace bowlers getting something out of the wicket. A par score should be around 160-170.
There are no major dew concerns to consider in an afternoon T20 game in Abu Dhabi. We expect both captains to insert the opposition in this match
IRE Team News:
- In spite of having a squad with some players who may be playing in their final T20 World Cup, Ireland have no significant injury worries to scupper their preparations for this match. We expect the side to be a mix of experienced and youthful players.
NED Team News:
- There are no major injury worries in the Netherlands camp ahead of this T20 World Cup opener. The biggest decisions for coach and captain will be how to fit in all of their talented batters. We expect to see Max O’Dowd at the top of the order with Colin Ackermann in the middle order.
