The 2nd match of the Oman T20I Series 2019 will be played between Ireland and Netherlands at the Al Amerat Cricket Ground, Al Amarat in Oman.

Both Ireland and Netherlands were part of a recently-concluded T20 tri-series held in Ireland where the hosts won two matches, lost one while the opening encounter of the series between Ireland and Netherlands washed out. Ireland then went on to win the tri-series, beating Scotland by just one run in the final.

Netherlands beat Ireland in their only encounter in the series by 6 wickets but were beaten twice by Scotland by big margins of 58 runs and 6 wickets.

Ireland have won three and last two of their last five matches while Netherlands have won just one and lost four. In the 10 T20Is played between the two teams, Ireland have won 3 and Netherlands have won 6. Netherlands have had the wood over Ireland in general but have not been in the best of form of late and have lost six of their last seven T20Is.

Ireland will be led by Gary Wilson who also remains one of their best batsmen along with Kevin O'Brien and Andrew Balbirnie. With the ball, left-arm spinner George Dockrell will cause most trouble to the opposition and was the team's highest wicket-taker in the recently-concluded tri-series.

Netherlands' top four in Tobias Visee, Max O’Dowd, Colin Ackermann and Ben Cooper are as good as any you will find. Paul van Meekeren has 29 wickets to his name and would be their key bowler.

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

Ireland- Kevin O'Brien, Gareth Delany, Andrew Balbirnie, Gary Wilson (c, wk), Mark Adair, Lorcan Tucker, Shane Getkate, Simi Singh, George Dockrell, Boyd Rankin, Craig Young

Netherlands- Tobias Visee, Max O’Dowd, Colin Ackermann, Ben Cooper, Pieter Seelaar (c), Ryan ten Doeschate, Scott Edwards (wk), Roelof van der Merwe, Fred Klaassen, Paul van Meekeren, Shane Snater
