Ireland T20I Tri-Series Online Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction - Ireland v Netherlands 1st T20
The first match of the Ireland T20I tri-series will be played between Ireland and Netherlands at The Village in Dublin.
Ryan ten Doeschate, Colin Ackermann and Roelof van der Merwe who are a certainty for the UAE tour have not been included in the Netherlands squad. Uncapped Vikram Singh, Clayton Floyd and Bas de Leede have been selected in their place.
That said, Ireland have not had the best of runs in recent times and had suffered defeat at the hands of Afghanistan before drawing level against Zimbabwe. David Delany, Harry Tector and Jacob Mulder have been included in the Ireland squad as the team is yet to announce the squad for their tour of UAE next month.
The last time these three teams were part of a series, it was the Oman quadrangular series, when Ireland beat Netherlands in a close encounter.
Paul Stirling, Kevin O’Brien, Gary Wilson and Andrew Balbirnie are the chief strikers for Ireland with the bat whereas Boyd Rankin will be key with the ball.
Netherlands' top three batsmen Tobias Visee, Max O’Dowd and Ben Cooper are the most dependable of the lot while skipper Pieter Seelaar will lead the charge with ball in hand.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
Ireland- Paul Stirling, Kevin O’Brien, Gary Wilson (c, wk), Andrew Balbirnie, Stuart Thompson, Mark Adair, Shane Getkate, David Delany, George Dockrell, Boyd Rankin, Jacob Mulder
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
