The surface will be good for batting but is not a belter as there is some slowness in the pitch. A batter needs to get used to pace and bounce before playing shots. A score of 160 can be a good one to defend.

Ireland Team News & Playing 11

IRE Team News

Ireland picked up a nervy one run win over Netherlands in the previous game. The team struggled with the bat and could only score 150-8 in 20 overs, however, the bowlers helped the team stay alive in the game with an outstanding show and eventually helped the team win by 1 run.

IRE Team Batting

Andrew Balbirnie, Lorcan Tucker and Harry Tector will be the batters to watch out for. Balbirnie did not score much in the  first game but he is one of the best batters in the Ireland team. Lorcan Tucker played well and scored  40 runs. Tector was dismissed for a duck but he is a class batter as well.

IRE Team Bowling

Ireland’s bowling will rest on Mark Adair, Craig Young and Gareth Delany. Adair played a key role in Ireland’s defence and picked two crucial runs. Also, Curtis Campher picked two wickets. Gareth Delany could not pick a wicket but he is good bowler and can trouble the Scottish batters.

IRE Team Form

Ireland has been playing some good cricket lately. They picked a win over Pakistan in one of the T20Is recently and also started the series with a win.
