Ireland started the series with a close one run win over Netherlands before their second game against Scotland was washed out due to rain. Ireland have evolved a team in this format of then game and will enter the game as big favourites. However, they can’t take Scotland for granted who are very capable to pull off an upset.

Andrew Balbirnie, Lorcan Tucker and Harry Tector will be the key batters for Ireland. The players had a decent series against Pakistan. Tucker scored 40 in the first T20I as well, however, Tector and Balbirnie failed to do much. But the players are among the best in Irish team and could be backed to bounce back strong.
