IRE vs NED Dream11 Today Match Prediction: Group A matches will get underway on the 18th of October with the high voltage clash between Ireland and Netherlands.

Ireland has won 2 matches that they played in the warmup games, whereas the Netherlands managed to win 1 out of 2.

IRE vs NED T20 World Cup Dream11 Prediction

Ireland

  • Ireland won both the warm-up games (against Papua New Guinea and Bangladesh) that they played ahead of the T20 World Cup.
  • Captain Balbirnie scored 69 runs from the two warmup matches.
  • Craig Young starred with the ball for the men in green as he picked up 5 wickets from 2 warmup matches.

Netherlands

  • The Netherlands won the warmup match against Oman and lost the match against Scotland.
  • Stephan Myburg starred with the bat in the warmups wherein he scored 60 from 2 innings.
  • T van der Gugten was the star for the men in orange in the warmups, with 3 wickets.

IRE vs NED Today Match Prediction

Both teams have got enough match practice coming into this tournament. Ireland played 2 warm-up matches against Bangladesh and Papua New Guinea respectively. The Netherlands on the other hand played 2 warm-up matches against Scotland and Oman respectively. Going with the current form Ireland has an edge over the dutch. Ireland has a well-settled bowling unit and a batting lineup that can take down any opposition on their day. The Netherlands on the other hand is dependent on few particular players to come good on this encounter and hence Ireland looks a far better side on paper.

IRE vs NED Winning Chances

Both teams are coming off after enough match practice in the warm-up matches. Considering the form that they showed in the warm-up games and taking into account the condition and playing XIs of both teams, the chances of winning shifts highly in favour of Ireland. That being said you cannot completely write off the dutch side. Veterans like Ryan Ten Doeschate are back in the mix and can win games on their own on his day. But looking at the meeting odds predicted by prominent betting sites, bet in favour of Ireland for this encounter.

Betway- IRE- 1.66, NED- 2.10
