Scotland – Ireland Match Prediction | 16-10-2019 06:10

The opening stand stitched together a rapturous stand of 200, one that saw them rip apart the oppositions bowling order as they opened their arms to amass a bagful of runs with Coetzer scoring 89 in 50 balls while Munsey remained unbeaten on 50.

They suffered a heavy defeat at the hands of Afghanistan followed by a tied series against Zimbabwe. This series will give a chance to Ireland and all other teams to prepare for the qualifying of T20 World Cup. The performance of Ireland had not been much impressive in recently played matches. The 1st match of Ireland was against the Netherlands was abandoned without a ball bowled.

They were charged for 194 runs in their inning of 20 overs. He smashed the inning of 89 runs on 50 deliveries with the help of eleven boundaries and five maximum sixes. The performance of the bowling unit of Scotland was not much impressive in their previous match. The skipper of Scotland, Kyle Coetzer also played an outstanding inning with the bat in the previous match. Alasdair Evans and Adrian Neill picked up two wickets each while Mark Watt and Richie Berrington got one wicket each in that match.

Top 10 Post Of The day

George Munseys batting form makes him hard to ignore for full captain, meanwhile, though Andy Balbirnie is another good option too. Gareth Delany impressed with bat and ball when these teams last met and he could be key again if he performs to that standard. He did not reach the same heights last time out, however, so it would be a risk. Maybe vice-captain is better.

Regardless of how the two teams take this game as we expect a hard-fought contest on Tuesday at the Village in Dublin. While the triangular series between Scotland, Netherlands, and Ireland is not being followed as closely as a few of the other tournaments across the globe are, the popularity of the series is bound to increase in the coming days - primarily due to the superb knock of George Munsey in the second match of the series, against the Netherlands. Scotland will be oozing with confidence following their excellent win and will be looking to get past Ireland, which is arguably going to be the toughest assignment for Scotland this series.

Ireland and Scotland are set to meet each other in the upcoming contest at the Village Dublin on 20th September, and a win for Scotland will ascertain their top of the table finish, Ireland, too, will be looking to register a win to get to the top of the ladder. With World T20 Qualifiers coming up next, both the sides will be looking to get some momentum, and a cracker of a contest is undoubtedly on the cards on Friday.

Stepping out to the cricket field for the second time in the space of a day, the side will be looking to emanate the same compelling performance against a more astute and well-versed side. In the end, Scotlands 58 run win not only added massive impetuous to their campaign in the Ireland Tri-Series but gave a huge boost to their net run-rate as well ahead of todays impending clash against Ireland.

After winning the toss, Oman invited Ireland to bat first. This Ireland innings was powered byPaul Stirlings magnificent 71 runs innings in which he hit eleven boundaries and one six. So, the Irish team set a total of 159 for 5 in 20 overs. Oman ran out of 15 runs to chase the total, so Ireland won by 15 runs. Now, they hold the top place in the points table with two points.

Irelands captain and wicket-keeper Gary Wilson is chosen by us here. While his role with the gloves is set to see him bring catch and stumping points our way, its his escalated batting order which saw us identify him as the name to get in here.

Comparing the two teams on paper, there's little to choose between the sides. Even though Ireland are playing at home, Scotland have the advantage of having a win behind them, and are, therefore, our pick to emerge on top in the upcoming fixture. Also, Scotland offer a pretty good return of 2.20, and betting on them can turn out to be really profitable. A win for Scotland, however, will put them in a pretty good position to qualify for the finals. This match is vital for both the sides, albeit for different reasons. For Ireland, this is a chance to get to the top of the ladder and assert their dominance before the World T20 Qualifiers.

David Delany and Harry Tector made their T20i debuts when these teams last met and retained their places last time out too. Craig Young and George Dockrell came into the team last time out, but Boyd Rankin could return this time. This is also the last opportunity to give Simi Singh game time, after he was called up to replaced injured Jacob Mulder. Paul Stirling has not been risked as he suffered a minor injury.

If the Scots can improve in their bowling departments, they will be the most challenging team to face not only in the upcoming encounter but also in the ICC World T20 Qualifiers. Apart from their batting, which rallied mainly because of two superb innings, their bowling did pretty well too. While their bowlers were pretty good on the whole, their inability to contain counter-attacking innings from Seelar was well and truly apparent. Adrian Neill was brilliant up front and in the death overs as the Netherlands were reduced to 18 for three at one stage.

In the end, Scotlands 58 run win not only added massive impetuous to their campaign in the Ireland Tri-Series but gave a huge boost to their net run-rate as well ahead of todays impending clash against Ireland.
