IRE vs HK Dream11 Match Prediction | Ireland vs Hong Kong Match Preview | ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifier 2019

Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi, 18th October at 03:40 PM IST

IRE vs HK Preview-

Ranked 14th in the MRF Tyres ICC T20I Rankings, Ireland is a force to reckon with in the tournament. With a perfect blend of experience and youth, Ireland’s recent form is quite promising and the side can outplay any opposition on a given day.

On the other hand, having made it twice to the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, Hong Kong is the most experienced side competing in the tournament. However, their recent form is a cause of concern as the side has managed just one win in the last eight games. They were eliminated in the group stage of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in 2014 and 2016. Let’s see,  if they can make it to the third.

Here is the IRE vs HK today match prediction.

IRE vs HK Dream11 Fantasy Team

Fantasy picks from Hong Kong –

  • Nizakat Khan– Khan is second-highest run-getter for the side in T20I cricket. In the current squad, he is the highest run-getter and has scored 254 runs in ten appearances since January 2018
  • Haroon Arshad- 20-year-old made his debut earlier this month and has impressed everyone with his quick-firing skills. In his first three games, he has scored 19*, 45 and 68 at an impressive rate of 146.66

Fantasy picks from Ireland –

  • Kevin O Brien- He is the most experienced all-rounder in the side. Smashing 124 off just 62 balls against Oman earlier this month, O Brien brought up Ireland’s first-ever century in the T20 cricket.
  • Andrew Balbirnie – Balbrinie smashed 48 balls 70 against Scotland in the warm-up game and is a key batter in the side
