The finale of the Ireland T20I tri-series will be played between Ireland and Scotland at The Village in Dublin.

Scotland have performed really well in the T20I tri-series and have won two out of their three games. After making a statement with a 58-run win over Netherlands in their first match, they were beaten by Ireland by four wickets in the second game.

However, in their latest game, they put up a comprehensive performance and beat Netherlands by six wickets. Four wickets from Hamza Tahir and two from Tom Sole ensured that Netherlands could not put up more than 123 runs on the board. George Munsey, Richie Berrington and Ollie Hairs then did the job for the team. Ireland had one match abandoned due to rain and lost the other against Netherlands by six wickets. However, when they squared off against Scotland, they won by four wickets, courtesy of a good bowling performance from Boyd Rankin, a half-century from Andrew Balbirnie and an all-round display from Gareth Delany.

Scotland will bank on their top three, George Munsey, Kyle Coetzer and Calum MacLeod, one of whom has delivered in every game in this tri-series. Hamza Tahir will be their X-factor with the ball.

For Ireland, all-rounders Kevin O'Brien and Gareth Delany will be key.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

Ireland- Kevin O Brien, Gareth Delany, Andrew Balbirnie, Harry Tector, Gary Wilson, Lorcan Tucker, Mark Adair, David Delany, George Dockrell, Craig Young, Stuart Thompson

Scotland-George Munsey, Kyle Coetzer, Calum MacLeod, Michael Leask, Richie Berrington, Ollie Hairs, Matthew Cross, Alasdair Evans, Adrian Neill, Tom Sole, Hamza Tahir
