IR-W vs SC-W Dream11 : Scotland look to make on last bid for a shot at the glistening trophy when they take on Ireland in their series culminator
When the Euro-Asia Quadrangular Series had made an advent a week back, Scotland had entered the fray of the prestigious series as a side who were looking to use this as an opportunity to tune out their squad for the upcoming T20 qualifiers. However the rampant spree of results the side has gone on ever since then has been unprecedented with the team finding themselves in with a very realistic chance of winning the glistening trophy.
Having won four out of the five contests the side has competed in, the team find themselves placed in the annuls of the league standings, level on points with Thailand with only the smallest margin of net run-rate separating the two sides. And Scotland did themselves a massive favour yesterday as they trounced Netherlands by 62 runs by DLS method, stalling their opponents to 60-8 after making a hefty 148-4 while batting first.
With the trophy well within sight, expect Scotland to come hot out of the blocks today in what will be the culminating encounter for them and Ireland in the four country series. While Scotland have a massive amount at stake today, Ireland themselves head into the clash with plenty of ramifications with the side having massively underachieved at the series.
Having been on an ascendancy in 2019 in the women’s cricketing fraternity, Ireland have been surprisingly abysmal in the ongoing series. They have failed to string together a run of decent performances, one which sees them slumped in third place, a position they’ll finish the series in irrespective of their showing against Scotland today.

What this surface has offered to the bowlers in the day clashes, especially the pacers has been more than adequate movement. The new ball has deviated fruitfully for the faster bowlers, frisking around to make it tough for batters to open their arms and score freely.
Expect today to be no different with the surface having gotten little time to be worked on by the ground team. It’s a narrative which will lead the side winning the toss to filed first here and extract whatever pace, swing and bounce their bowlers can get.

We have opted for the bare minimum of three bats in this facet with their being a real dearth of options, especially from Ireland’s side.

Elsewhere from Scotland we have opted for the services of Becky Glen and Lorna Jack. Jack was in sensational touch yesterday, cleaning apart Netherlands to guide her side to a healthy score of 148 and we fully envisage her mustering another huge knock today as well.

Kim Garth was someone we eyed up as well in this segment, especially after she scored 30 yesterday but her price tag and the identity of the opponent saw us veer clear of an otherwise pivotal performer for the side.
