Ireland vs Scotland T20 head to head record: IRE vs SCO head to head records and stats

Ireland vs Scotland T20 head to head: The SportsRush presents for you the Head to Head statistics for IRE vs SCO T20 World Cup match.

Ireland and Scotland will resume their T20I rivalry after more than three years in the seventh First Round match of ICC T20 World Cup 2022. Just like these two teams’ respective tournament opener yesterday, even this match will be played at the Bellerive Oval.

Ireland, who enjoy a brilliant T20I head-to-head record against Scotland, face a must-win match after losing against Zimbabwe on Monday. With eyes on Super 12 qualification, Irish cricketers would be looking to further strengthen their head-to-head record against this opposition.

Scotland, on the other hand, will be playing this match on the back of defeating West Indies by a 42-run margin. As cliched as it sounds, Scotland would be wanting to carry forward the momentum to move a step closer to qualifying for the next round for the second time in as many years.

Played in Dublin in September 2019, the last Ireland-Scotland T20I had resulted in an archetype cliffhanger. Chasing a 187-run target, Scotland had done all the hard work before falling short by a solitary run. With multiple players from both the teams having played that match, fans can expect a stellar match on Tuesday.
