ENG vs IRE Dream11 Prediction: England vs Ireland 1st ODI – 30 July 2020 (Southampton)
Hosts England will take on Ireland in the 1st ODI match of the Historic ODI series. This is the first limited-overs series after the COVID-19 pandemic and this promises to be a really great game to watch out.
Hosts will miss their major players such as Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer, Jos Butler, etc in the series as they are the part of the red-ball squad but England possesses a brilliant white-ball squad and they would like to dominate from ball one. The likes of Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, and Eoin Morgan can dismantle any bowling line-up in the world and they would certainly like to dominate in the game.
Ireland have played some decent cricket in the past but they have not beaten England since the 2011 Cricket World Cup. Ireland have some experienced campaigners and they can give a debut to two of their very good talents in this game. Harry Tector and Curtis Campher are expected to make their debuts in this game. Ireland will miss their best ODI bowler Mark Adair but have some really good young players in their ranks.
England would definitely want to dominate in their own backyard and they possess a really strong squad.
