UAE vs Ireland 2nd T20I Betting Tips 08/10/2021

Teams Status


The opening match of the series went on as pretty much it was expected. UAE were rocked early and restricted to a measly 123-7. That total was never going to scare a batting line-up as talented as Ireland’s.

For UAE, several batsmen got starts but almost everyone consumed too many balls, looked laborious before vanishing.

Even the target they eventually got owes a lot to their tail-enders, from which Kashif Daud and captain Ahmed Raza showed urgency, contributing 17 and 12 runs off just 10 and seven balls respectively.

As suspected, there is a gulf in class and talent on both sides and it should continue to show for the rest of the series.


Ireland pretty much played as perfect a game as they could have played. Bowling first, they got the breakthrough in the second over and then never allowed UAE batters to settle again.

Young pacer Curtis Campher was the pick of the Irish bowlers, taking three important wickets and conceding just 19 runs in his four overs, which also featured the game’s only maiden over.

With the bat, in the second innings, Paul Stirling and Kevin O’Brien made sure there wasn’t even a hint of a contest. Their 90-run stand made a mockery of the UAE bowling attack.

There is little to add here. This is a mismatch.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: UAE total runs in over 1 under 5.5 @ 1.725

They say don’t fix what isn’t broke and this play isn’t broken yet. In the opening T20I, UAE openers were tentative as expected and scored just three runs. We see a repeat of that pattern. The play here is for UAE to score less than 5.5 runs in the first over. The play can be found on 22Bet.

Tip: Ireland total runs in over 1 over 5.5 @ 1.8

Meanwhile, Irish openers must be feeling even more confident about their game for the rest of the series. They were also kept quiet in the opening over of the series opener, only scoring three runs off the first six balls but they should be much more bold and confident now, thanks to being 1-0 up in the series. The play can be found on 22Bet.


It was known already, and the way the first T20I played out only confirmed it: Ireland are a class above UAE. One-sided matches are all we should expect from this series.
