The batters will look to put up a better show this time around. The fast bowlers will look to carry on the good form. van Beek and Klaassen broke the back of Irish top order and will look to continue their form in this game.

Meanwhile, Ireland looked rusty in the first match. Their bowlers were superb with Young and Josh Little producing exceptional performances. Little was particularly impressive as he bowled with hostile pace and looked threatening at one point. But it was the batting where they lost the game. Apart from Stirling and Simi Singh, no batter looked comfortable. A lot will be expected from their strong batting order to lead the team to a big total.
