IR-W vs ND-W Dream11 : Ireland look to make it two wins on the bounce today as they look to stamp their authority in the frontier tournament.
Ireland made an entry into the land of the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 Qualifier heavily touted as one of the favourites to not only make it to the ICC T20 Women’s World Cup but also end up as winners of this qualification process. And the side did no harm to their statue yesterday, putting on a staunch performance as they cascaded their way to a comfortable win.
Squaring off against Namibia yesterday, Ireland’s win couldn’t have been f a more complete identity. They outshone their opponents in all the departments of the game, putting in a pinch perfect bowling effort to stifle Namibia to just 83 runs before chasing down the paltry target at hand in a mere 14.3 overs with 7 wickets in hand.
Elsewhere while Ireland were quick to stamp their authority, Netherlands were left suffering a dismal win with the side going down by 30 runs against Thailand. Partaking in a rain spoiled clash which was stalled to just 9 overs, Netherlands’ pursuit of the 77 run target infront of them could last as long as 46 runs only, leaving the side staring at a 30 run defeat.
Ahead of today’s clash, it’s that performance which Netherlands will be looking to address but they know things aren’t going to get any easier for them. Up infront of Ireland, the side’s apathy looks set to only increase if they deliver yet another callous performance, one which Ireland will need no invitation to capitalise on.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
With a match already having been contested here earlier in the day and chances of rain intervening as well, this should be a wicket which stays on the side of the bowlers. With spin coming into full effect yesterday over here and rain offering purchase to the pacers as well, this is going to be a track where the side winning the toss will be looking to bat first.
Probable Playing 11
Laura Delany (C), Kim Garth, Shauna Kavanagh, Gaby Lewis, Sophie MacMahon, Lara Maritz, Leah Paul, Orla Prendergast, Celeste Raack, Eimear Richardson, Mary Waldron

IR-W vs ND-W Match Prediction
It’s got to be Ireland who emerge as the winners from this clash. Not only are they the more well-rounded and complete outfit out of these two sides but come bestowed with star performances, names who know what it takes to succeed at the highest level.
The bowling will play the big difference today with Ireland having a way more efficient unit, one which will keep pegging back Netherlands with wickets at regular intervals.

IR-W vs ND-W Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
Her 33 runs in 30 balls saw her not only rake up the highest score for her side yesterday but guide her unit past the finishing line without any jitters as well. Ireland’s Mary Waldron is our undoutable pick for this one after registering a sensational performance with the bat yesterday.
We have also picked out Netherlands’ top scorer from their clash yesterday, Babette de Leede with her 20 runs helping save her side from what could have ended up being an extremely embarrassing collapse.
IR-W vs ND-W Dream11 Batswomen
Her 26 run knock in the opening slot gave Ireland the perfect platform to come out and craft out a cruising run chase, making Ireland’s opener Gaby Lewis the first player to be indulged in by us. We have also gone ahead with Leah Paul from the side with her being one of the few bowlers to get her full 4 overs with the ball, a narrative which sees her become a must have for this clash.
From Netherlands we opted for Juliet Post.
IR-W vs ND-W Dream11 All-Rounders
Completely dominated by players from Ireland with a full trio representing them for this clash given the specialist players they have filled to the brim in this facet, our first agenda was picking out the entire top-order from their batting unit. This saw us indulge in the services of KJ Garth after her 22 runs yesterday with Laura Delany accompanying her.
Her incredible figures of 2-10 with the ball see offspinner Eimear Richardson complete our picks from the side while we have opted for number three bat, Heather Siegers from Netherlands.
IR-W vs ND-W Dream11 Bowling Order
With us having selected a slew of bowlers from the previous facets from Ireland, we’ll be indulging in only Sophie MacMahon over here with us opting for a duo to compensate players form Netherlands. Caroline de Lange and Silver Siegers failed to pick up a wicket in between them yesterday but expect them to deliver a more formidable showing today.
