The Village, Dublin, 18th September at 06:00 PM IST
It is time for match no 4 of Ireland T20I tri-series which will be played between the hosts Ireland and the Netherlands at the Village in Dublin. This would be the third match of the series for both these sides.
The opening match of this series saw Ireland and the Netherlands squaring off but the rain gods had other choices as the match was abandoned due to heavy rain.
In the second match, they faced Scotland who completely thrashed them by 58 runs courtesy a mammoth target of 252 runs set by Scotland while batting first.
They now need to re-group in order to give themselves a chance of finishing at the top.
Ireland won the toss and they are batting first
Moisture on the surface will definitely assist the seamers early on especially with the new ball. However, this track is known to produce high scoring thrillers which was eminent in the last game. Same can be expected for this fixture.
