Ireland Team Review
The next part of my Ireland vs Scotland t20 world cup predictions is dedicated to naming the best Ireland eleven for the game. Lorcan Tucker is an automatic choice for the wicketkeeping slot. Paul Stirling and Andy Balbirnie are my preferred openers.
The middle order will be handled between Harry Tector and George Dockrell. I would allot finishers’ roles to allrounders Delany and Campher. Bowlers Josh Little, Mark Adair, Andy McBrine and Barry McCarthy will complete the eleven.
Scotland Team Review
I continue my Ireland vs Scotland predictions by naming the best probable eleven for Scotland ahead of the match. Matthew Cross will be the wicketkeeper. Michael Jones, Kyle Coetzer, Munsey, and Macleod will be the batting pillars. Berrington, Sharif and Greaves will provide all-around value to the side. Frontline bowlers Gavin Main, Alasdair Evans and Hamza Tahir, will complete the eleven.
Ireland vs Scotland Head-to-head
Now, it’s time to turn my Ireland vs Scotland predictions in the direction of comparing the head-to-head performances. Ireland and Scotland have met on 7 occasions in the past. Ireland have won on 7 occasions while Scotland have tasted victory on 3. While 2 matches were tied, one ended without a result.
Ireland vs Scotland Last Meeting
The teams last met in Dublin on 20 September 2019 in the 6th match of the Ireland Tri-Nation T20I Series. After they won the toss, Scotland elected to field first. Ireland were given a bright start by their openers, Kevin O’Brien and Gareth Delany.
The pair added 47 runs before Delany departed. O’Brien continued the good work in the company of Balbirnie and in turn, with Wilson, Adair and Tucker. When O’Brien was finally dismissed for a top score of 63 off 45 balls, Ireland were happily placed at 170 for 6 in the 18th over. As things transpired, they reached a score of 186/9 in their allotted 20 overs. For Scotland, Adrian Neill, Satyaan Sharif, Hamza Tahir, and Tom Sole took wickets each.
Chasing 187 to win, Scotland lost early wickets to be reduced to 36 for 2 by the 4th over. They were then rescued by a partnership between Matthew Cross and Richie Berrington for the third wicket. The pair added 122 before Berrington was dismissed for a belligerent 76 made from only 43 balls.
With 29 runs to get from 19 balls, Scotland were well-placed. However, in a thrilling finish, they fell short by a solitary run, finishing at 185/6. Cross remained not out on 66 made from 56 deliveries. Taking 2/30, Mark Adair was Ireland’s most successful bowler of the game.
Ireland vs Scotland: Players to Look out for
Continuing my Ireland vs Scotland betting tips, I predict the players who are likely to do well in the upcoming game. O’Brien has since retired. However, Ireland still have two of the players who did well in their last game versus Scotland.
In my view, Delany and Balbirnie will continue where they left off in that game. From the Scotland team, I expect the heroes of that game, Matthew Cross and Berrington, to continue the good work. I also expect Satyaan Sharif to display his all-around skills.
Ireland vs Scotland: Toss Prediction
