Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction Oman Quadrangular series- Ireland v Netherlands

Paul Stirling
Paul Stirling

In the eight matches that Netherlands have played against Ireland, they have won five of them and lost two, while there has been no outcome in one match.

Netherlands defeated Ireland in the last year's tri Nation T20 Series also.

Ireland would depend on skipper Paul Stirling who has already made his mark with a 71-run knock in the quadrangular series. The other leading batters would be Kevin O'Brien and Andrew Balbirnie.

Among the bowlers, Boyd Rankin has a lot of experience and is expected to return with impressive figures. George Dockrell and Simmi Singh also pose a threat with their bowling.

Netherlands have had a wonderful quadrangular series till now. They backed their seven-wicket victory over Scotland with an eight-wicket win over Oman to remain unbeaten in the tournament till now. Their batting depends on their top three in Stephan Myburgh, Tobias Visee and Ryan ten Doeschate.

Fred Klaassen is one of their leading bowlers and will open the bowling for the team. Roelof van der Merwe is another bowler who has a good T20 record and his left-arm spin would test the ability of the Irish batsmen against the spinning ball.

With one win and one loss from two matches, Ireland will be disappointed by their show in the tournament till now. They started the series on a good note with a 15-run win over Netherlands but lost their second match against Scotland by a big margin of six wickets and would be eager to bounce back.


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


Ireland- Paul Stirling (c), Kevin O'Brien, Andrew Balbirnie, Lorcan Tucker, Simi Singh, Shane Getkate, Boyd Rankin, Stuart Poynter (wk), George Dockrell, Joshua Little, Peter Chase

Netherlands- Stephan Myburgh, Tobias Visee, Ryan ten Doeschate, Sikander Zulfiqar, Paul van Meekeren, Ben Cooper, Pieter Seelaar, Scott Edwards, Fred Klaassen, Shane Snater, Roelof van der Merwe
