Ireland vs Pakistan Betting Odds

Pakistan will be the favourites by the bookmakers as they have a stronger squad and they are the runners-up team of the last T20 World Cup. With their top batters in form and pacers taking control as well, Pakistan surely has the upper-hand. Ireland is equipped with good quality batting but their bowling is lacking to take crucial wickets.

Who will win Ireland vs Pakistan 3rd T20 Match?

Everyone must have predicted a clean sweep by Pakistan with their full strength squad available in this series but Ireland surprised everyone with a win in the first match. The toss played a crucial role as PAK bounced back with a comprehensive chase in the 2nd match. The visitors look confident now and we anticipate a win by Pakistan in the deciding match of the series.

🏆 Ireland vs Pakistan Prediction

Ireland impressed everyone with a stunning victory in the first match but Pakistan bounced back strongly in the 2nd match and chased a mammoth target of 194 runs in just 16.5 overs with the help of heroic innings of Rizwan and Fakhar. Pakistan has a strong bowling unit and they are getting good assistance with the pace on this pitch and if the batters perform again then it would be difficult for the home side to win the final clash.
