IR-A vs SCO-A Dream 11 Prediction Team : The two sides set to resume their battle from Sunday as the focus shifts to the shortest format of the game
After enthralling us in an engrossing three match one day series, the focus for the Ireland A and Scotland A cricket teams shifts to T20s. The two sides are set to regale us in a compelling brand of cricket starting Sunday at the same venue as the one day series.
With several international players featuring in the encounter expect this series to encapsulate a feisty battle between the ball and bat as the two sides look to have a fight go at each other in the space of a couple of days. Being played on consecutive days, there’s hardly any breathing room for the two sides who’ll be treating this series as on opportunity to fine themselves before the line-ups head for international soirees.
If the one day series taught us anything, it was that these two sides are going to spare no expense in getting the better of each other. A topsy turvy series changed hands several times with Scotland winning the first match before Ireland showed immense fighting spirit to make it 1-1.
In the wake of those two encounters, the series went down to the decider with Scotland managing to hold on and see through the narrowest of wins. A rain curtailed encountered saw Ireland ad Scotland both fail to get past the moving ball with the wet conditions offering more than ample support to the pacers. In pursuit of Ireland’s 179, Scotland eventually managed to win courtesy of the DLS system by 4 wickets.
If anything, Ireland would be hurting massively after that defeat. They went down fighting but in the end fell short in a series where they had given it their all. Come the first T20, it’s going to be a battle that will keep us on the hinges yet again, one we see Ireland winning.
Wicket-Keeper for IR-A vs SCO-A Dream11
Ireland’s Lorcan Tucker’s 61 runs in the final one day were the only reason is side managed to go past the 150 run mark. It was an exceptional knock, one that saw his score irrespective of the murky conditions and he rightfully earns a place in our side.
Scotland’s Wallace comes in for us as well. We dropped him after the second one day but with 48 runs proceeding that he showed it was a decision we shouldn’t have partaken in.
Batsmen for IR-A vs SCO-A Dream11
We’ll begin the batting picks with Scotland and their captain Dylan Budge becomes the first player to come in for us. Be it the first or last one day, we emerged from the series as the highest scorer, always ready to show determination. George Munsey is going to be his partner with Colin Greaves completing the trio of Scotland batsmen for us.
Jack Tector is our only pick from Ireland given the inconsistent nature of their batting unit across the three one days.
All-Rounders for IR-A vs SCO-A Dream11
This is where we are going to begin compensating our Ireland depleted 11 with Delany and Getkate composing our side. The two have been one of the most reliable players for us and in a T20 match, all-round skills are scoured for immensely.
The mainstay for our side though is going to be Scotland’s Leask. No matter the format, the player is quissential to everything right Scotland are able to put together on the field with the proceedings revolving around his complete show.
Bowlers for IR-A vs SCO-A Dream11
Frontline pacer Craig Young from Ireland seals his berth in our side after an impressive one day series along with Peter Chase. Completing will be Scott Cameron from Scotland with the conditions set to remain heavily overcast, something that will heavily play into the fast bowlers hands.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Our captain is going to be Scotland’s Michael Leask while Ireland’s Delany is our vice-captain for the series opener.
