Men’s T20 World Cup First Round Match 3 Ireland vs Netherlands Match Prediction

Oct 18, 2021

Ireland and the Netherlands are in the same group for the first round of the T20 world cup 2021 matches. They even have Sri Lanka in their group thus if things go as expected, only 1 of Ireland or the Netherlands will qualify for the Super 12 stage of the T20 world cup tournament. This makes Ireland vs the Netherlands a very important match. The match is going to be played at the Sheik Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi on the 18th of Oct 2021. IRELAND VS NETHERLANDS TEAM PREVIEWS IRELAND Ireland’s cricket team has sadly not been able to show the kind of improvement that may have been expected. It’s a full-member Test playing country currently however it’s still being crushed by associate nations quite frequently. Ireland lost a T20 series to UAE 2-1 just some days before the beginning of the T20 world cup tournament. Ireland tends to struggle in conditions that are a bit spin-friendly which is strictly what’s expected in the T20 world cup tournament 2021. Almost all of Ireland’s batting challenge is going to come back from their top-3. Kevin O’Brien, Paul Stirling, and Andrew Balbirnie. Ireland lacks depth and though there are some promising players like Harry Tector, Gareth Delany, William Curtis Camphor, and George Dockrell in the squad, we don’t suppose they’re going to win Ireland too many matches. Joshua Little and Craig Young are the bowlers to look out for. Little, above all, is extremely smart with the new ball and may be troublesome to score off. T20 cricket is Ireland’s weakest format and it’d be very nervous beginning against a dangerous Netherlands team. NETHERLANDS The Netherlands has grown up into one of the strongest associate nations in recent times and it’d be looking to make a mark in the T20 world cup of course. A lot of the players named in the squad play in the English County Circuit and aren’t in the least in need of high-level cricket. The Netherlands, though, has not contested a match in the UAE in recent weeks to get accustomed to the conditions. That’s one thing that would be seen as a clear disadvantage. We think The Netherlands contains a very dangerous batting line-up. Max O’Dowd, Colin Ackerman, Bas DE Leede, Stephan Myburgh, and Ryan Ten Doeschate are all a part of the squad. They’re capable of getting runs quickly and can clear the boundaries quite frequently as well. The bowling department for The Netherlands is additionally quite smart. Fred Klaassen, Logan van Beek, and Timm van der Gugten are all experienced, skilled, and deceivingly dangerous. They’re going to understand the importance of getting an early wicket and will come at Irish batsmen terribly exhausting. Roelof van der Merwe is additionally a really experienced spinner and somebody who just raises his game in pressure situations. IRELAND VS NETHERLANDS TOSS PREDICTION The team that wins the toss is probably going to want to field 1st. We saw in IPL 2021 how the chasing teams had a definite advantage and there’s little doubt that each group is attentive to that. PITCH AND CONDITIONS The conditions in Abu Dhabi are expected to be smart for batting. The pitch will slow up a bit as the match progresses however the surface is actually better than what was seen at the beginning of the IPL matches. A score of around a hundred and seventy may be seen as accomplishable by each team that bats 1st and the one that chases. Getting runs in the powerplay is key because the last six overs might not be very productive.

  HEAD-TO-HEAD Overall: Matches played: 12 Ireland won: 4 The Netherlands won: 7 N/R: 0 In the UAE: Matches played: 3 Ireland won: 2 The Netherlands won: 1 N/R: 0 The probable best batter of the match Paul Stirling (Ireland) Paul Stirling has been stupendous for Ireland over the years. His recent form in the shortest format is additionally worth envying. He had an out-of-this-world run in the T20I series against Zimbabwe wherever he even scored a century. If he gets going into the primary six overs, The Netherlands bowlers could find themselves chasing leather on Monday’s encounter. Probable best bowler of the match Mark Adair (Ireland) Mark Adair has been a real wicket-taker for Ireland in the T20I format. He is somebody, who will bowl in the powerplay and at the death. The pacer manages to hit the correct channels and induces false shots from the batters. Adair was additionally amongst the wickets once Ireland Locked horns with South Africa. He’s expected to play a key role. TODAY’S MATCH PREDICTION: IRELAND TO WIN THE MATCH.
