Ireland vs. Scotland
It does not seem to be a very good series so far for Ireland, being defeated twice by the Netherlands at their home turf, in the Netherlands T20I Tri-Series. But there is still an opportunity for them to redeem themselves with the 13-day showdown with Scotland, starting 3rd June till the 16th of June, 2018.
Ireland has been characterized by poor performance in batting throughout the tournament. The first match they played was a disappointment as they could not chase a score of 145 and then went ahead to set a score of 158 in the second match against the Netherlands which was easily chased down by them.
What to keep in mind before betting:
Ireland has a limited number of strengths in their favor, but if they choose to play to them, they could flip the outcome of the game.
- Simi Singh, Ireland’s recent star performer, as an all-rounder with admirable batting averages and impressive bowling spells. He is probably the greatest asset of the team, so pressure on him to perform is high.
- Ireland’s batting averages are overall better and more favorable for a win as compared to Scotland.
- The Irish team has a history of starting a tournament well, especially against Scotland. Even in the past, though Scotland had the lead at the end, Ireland started out as crowd favorites.
For today’s prediction, the most probable outcome of this series is Ireland taking a good lead as always and starting out with at least one grand win. If the start is a string, Ireland can have a great overall tournament too. The odds and statistics are both in Ireland’s favor, and the ball is in their courts to reap the chance and hit a sixer out of the park!
