Cricket Betting Tips and Fantasy Cricket Match Predictions: England vs Ireland 3rd ODI
The 3rd and the last match of the ODI series between England and Ireland will be played at The Ageas Bowl in Southampton.
With the series already lost, it will be all about playing their best game for Ireland. There will certainly be frustration among the visitors, knowing that they are a far better side than the performances that they have put in in the first two matches of the series.
For the second time straight, their top order failed to fire, with each of Paul Stirling, Gareth Delany and Andrew Balbirnie getting dismissed cheaply. Runs did come, like in the series opener, from the willow of Curtis Campher, but it was too little too late.
David Willey has been the man for England in both the matches and has given the team a great start which has handed them the advantage over the full duration of the match.
Reece Topley was given a go in place of Tom Curran in the last match and bowled well despite picking up just one wicket.
Jason Roy has now failed in back to back matches. But, his opening partner Jonny Bairstow set the Ageas Bowl on fire in the last game with a 41-ball 82. England did wobble but a 79-run partnership between David Willey and Sam Billings for the seventh wicket took them home.
Joshua Little is expected to be the top wicket taker for Ireland in this match as well with another big contribution expected from the South Africa-born Curtis Campher.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
England - Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow (wk), James Vince, Liam Livingstone, Eoin Morgan (c), Sam Billings, Liam Dawson, David Willey, Adil Rashid, Reece Topley, Saqib Mahmood
Ireland - Paul Stirling, Gareth Delany, Andrew Balbirnie (c), Harry Tector, Kevin O Brien, Lorcan Tucker (wk), Curtis Campher, George Dockrell, Andy McBrine, Joshua Little, Craig Young
