Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction Ireland T20I Tri-Series - Scotland v Netherlands
The second match of the Ireland T20I tri-series will be played between Scotland and Netherlands at The Village in Dublin.
It would have been very frustrating for Netherlands to see their first match of the tri-series against Ireland rained-off without even a ball being bowled. They will now look forward to their second match of the tri-series against Scotland.
Both teams have a pretty even stevens record against each other with Scotland and Netherlands both winning five matches each out of the total 10 T20I matches played between them. However, based on current form, Scotland look a better team and have won four out of their last five encounters while Netherlands have lost all five.
Scotland have a top heavy batting line-up with opener George Munsey and skipper Kyle Coetzer in rich vein of form. Hamza Tahir is their best bowler and picked up 10 wickets from three games in the Oman Quadrangular series.
As for Netherlands, they will also expect runs from Tobias Visee and Max O’Dowd at the top of the order. Captain Pieter Seelaar will come in handy with both bat and ball and is expected to be the highest wicket-taker for Netherlands.
Scotland have won both of their last two international T20I series i.e the Oman Quadrangular series and the Dutch tri-series and will be the favourites coming into this match.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
Scotland- George Munsey, Kyle Coetzer (c), Matthew Cross, Calum MacLeod, Richie Berrington, Craig Wallace, Michael Leask, Adrian Neill, Safyaan Sharif, Mark Watt, Hamza Tahir
Netherlands- Tobias Visee, Max O’Dowd, Ben Cooper, Bas de Leede, Tonny Staal, Scott Edwards (wk), Pieter Seelaar (c), Brandon Glover, Paul van Meekeren, Fred Klaassen, Philippe Boissevain
