IRE vs NED Dream11 : Ireland look to show why they are considered one of the overwhelming favourites for winning this series
Over the course of the last year, Ireland have been quick to remind everyone of why they have across the years been such a successful side in the cricketing fraternity. The outfit have regained their lost touch with the side once again clicking in unison to become a complete and well rounded unit, one which has gone on a compelling and rampant winning spree.
Now as the side veer up to partake in the T20 World Cup Qualifiers later this month, the upcoming days are the most pivotal part of the side’s sortie in 2019. Everything the side had worked towards was to ensure they are able to seal their berth in next year’s ICC T20 World Cup, a claim they’ll be looking to lay stake to by emanating the same tenacious brand of cricket which has made them so successful.
Preceding those qualifiers, the side find themselves participating in the 5 country series between Hong Kong, Ireland, Netherlands Oman and Nepal as they look to further tune out their combination and get a clear idea about the most sublime setup to continue their ascendancy in the arena. Clashing heads against Netherlands in their series opener come today, this imminent match is a critical one for Irelands, one to stamp their credentials and show their titillating worth.
Elsewhere for Netherlands, today’s match is a tricky, stringent and staunch test in stature with the side taking on a team which is being highly touted to win this series. Netherlands themselves have not enjoyed the most fruitful of times in the T20 circuit but will be looking to show they are more than pushovers and prove why this encounter is far from a foregone conclusion come today.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
With three wins in four matches for the team batting second on this surface the numbers assert how good a track this is for the batsmen. The ball comes on nicely on the bat with good bounce and ample room allowing the batters to peel the ball away to the fence.
The side winning the toss here will be looking to step out and chase on today’s wicket.

IRE vs NED Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
Gary Wilson from Ireland becomes our pick for this one not only due to his role behind the wickets, one where he’ll be heavily involved in catches and dismissal’s but is also someone who has been asked to come out and ensure his side are able to make the most of the death overs. His ability to hit boundaries and send the ball to the fence should see him get good points today, making the player our pick for this facet.
IRE vs NED Dream11 Batsmen
A major reason for Ireland’s succulent showing in all the series they have doled out their expertise in this year has been their batting order. Out of all the sides vying it out for a spot in the annuls of the points tally this series, Ireland undoubtedly have the most daunting batting unit, one which will be looking to cut short Netherlands’ work in this one.
This sees us opt for their entire top-order, beginning with Paul Stirling, someone who has become the foundation of the side ever since their advent into the cricketing arena. His side’s top scorer in white ball cricket his year, the batsman was the first name we wanted to indulge in from the side along with Kevin O’Brien and Andy Balbirnie, Ireland’s most enterprising upcoming match.
Elsewhere we have the one pick come into our side from Netherlands in the form of Max O’Dowd who has scored four 50s in 11 T20 matches this past year.
IRE vs NED Dream11 All-Rounders
We complete with the batting choices from Netherlands in this facet by getting in both Colin Ackermann and Pieter Seelaar who scored 96 in a T20 matches earlier this year while Colin has kept coming up with good displays for his side. From Ireland we are getting in Mark Adair, their frontline pacer who can also come out and play pivotal cameos, seeing his dual toned nature make him an instant pick.
IRE vs NED Dream11 Bowling Order
With Netherlands having shown how vulnerable they are with the bat, a side which can be sent packing cheaply with vicious, ominous and articulate bowling, we had to bring in the two players for Ireland in the form of Boyd Rankin and George Dockrell. Elsewhere the one pick of Brandon Glover from Netherlands sees us complete our Dream 11 side for this impending clash.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Stirling has been selected to become our captain for today’s match while from the same side, Balbirnie is the vice-captain.
