Ireland vs Netherlands Betting Tips 18/10/2021

Teams Status

Ireland

Like most teams active at this stage in Group A and B, Ireland, too, have had plenty of playing opportunities in the UAE ahead of the T20 World Cup.

In all, they’ve played six matches this month in the UAE, and were expected to win all or most of them, but their results have been mixed at best.

After being defeated by Scotland, they faced the UAE in a three-match series. They brushed aside their hosts in game 1 before suffering back-to-back upsets and losing the series. 

A thrashing of Papua New Guinea and then an upset win over Bangladesh did erase the memories of the UAE series loss but also qualified for a mixed tune-up campaign.

The Netherlands

Unlike Ireland, the Netherlands’ outings in the UAE lately were quite limited. A pair of matches is all they got to play before this game.

They were quite poor in the loss to Scotland in their first game, and only just managed to defeat Oman in the follow-up game.

The four-run win wouldn’t impress anyone as it came against a side less talented than them.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Ireland to win @ 1.70

The Dutch do not have much experience of local conditions, whereas the Irish have a mixed campaign behind them. That said, the Irish have played more cricket in local conditions and also pack more talent, which is why we back them to get the win here. The play can be found on Dafabet.

Tip: Ireland to score over 5.5 runs in first over @ 1.84

Irish openers Paul Stirling and Andy Balbirnie have a full array of strokes in their bag. And their one-down batsman Gareth Delany is also ruthless in his approach. Therefore, against weak opposition, the Irish top order would want to start on the front foot and find runs from the get-go. The play can be found on Dafabet.

Conclusion

Of the last five games played between these two sides, Ireland and the Netherlands have won two each, and one ended in a no-result. It shows there is little to choose between these two but still someone can be chosen. And that for us is Ireland.
