IRE vs NED Dream11 : Ireland look to get their second successive win and justify the high standards being accorded from them
Ireland and Netherlands return to battle it out with each other for the second time after their series opener ended up getting abandoned due to incessant rainfall. The two outfits will be fortuitously anticipating that the heavy cloud cover doesn’t explode into lashing rainfall in today’s clash as they prepare to take on each other in the second round of fixtures in the Ireland Tri-Series 2019.
Having played against Scotland before entering the land of today’s clash, both these sides ended up enduring opposing rules in their respective run feats. Ireland ended up registering their first win of the series yesterday after peeling down Scotland’s target on 194 with 4 wickets and 20 balls to spare, a well crafted run chase that saw them be in complete control across the full encounter.
Elsewhere earlier in the series, things didn’t fathom out quite so nicely for Netherlands though whose bowling was lambasted by Scotland in a display of titillating hitting by their bats. They took apart a sordid Netherlands attack to score a humongous 252, one their batsmen never had any chance of navigating past. They ended up losing by 58 runs in the end as their effort was curtailed at 194, a massive defeat which leaves them languishing in the dearths of the points tally.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
An excellent surface for batting, we have seen the previous two matches contested over here pile on the runs with both the encounters seeing both the sides massively love their time out with the bat in the middle. Winning the toss doesn’t make a massive difference here but the side winning it would be looking to come out and chase today.

IRE vs NED Match Prediction
Playing their first match of the series yesterday Ireland showed why they are so highly regarded amongst the upcoming sides in the European region. The immense depth in their batting order saw them chase down what could have been a tricky target with 14 balls to spare as they traversed their way past the run chase with relative comfort in the end.
The batsmen are what make all the difference for them today as well, a unit which should take them to their second win in succession.

IRE vs NED Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
With 37 in 19 balls against Scotland, Netherlands’ wicket-keeper Scoot Edwards is our pick for this one. The lower middle-order batsmen is someone who can score runs at quick rate towards the culminating stages and with his side set to lose their way against a solid bowling unit, he should get ample overs to come out and bat in as well.
IRE vs NED Dream11 Batsmen
After their strong effort yesterday, it was only fair for us to dominate this segment with selection from Ireland, picking up three names from their batting order into our Dream 11 outfit. And all of them come in from the top-order as well given how lacklustre Netherlands looked with the ball the last time around, picks who’ll make the most of a languishing bowling outfit sent against them.
We begin with yesterday’s top scorer for the side, Andrew Balbirnie whose 64 run knock in just 32 balls saw him hit three 6s and eight 4s on his way to a match winning effort as he relentlessly sent the bowlers to the fence. Opener Kevin O’Brien and Harry Tector come in as well for us while from the other side we have picked out opener Max O’Dowd who was unlucky to be run-out the last time around after getting 15 runs.
IRE vs NED Dream11 All-Rounders
Opener Gareth Delany partook in two pivotal stands for Ireland yesterday, an opening partnership of 57 followed up by a first wicket stand 42 to lay down the perfect platform for his side to come out and build from. In a sublime and rampant all round display from him, he not only scored 52 in the opening slot but snared the two wickets as well, making the Ireland player an instant pick for today’s match.
Elsewhere from Netherlands we have chosen their captain Pieter Seelaar who got 96 in 49 balls against Scotland, a batting effort which saw his side manage to nudge their way to as close as 200 as they were able to manage. With three wickets, Shane Snater comes in from the side as well for today’s encounter.
IRE vs NED Dream11 Bowling Order
The one thing which is a certainty for today’s encounter is the fact that Netherlands are going to be losing wickets at will. They showed that in the last match and with Ireland being a way more formidable prospective, we don’t envision them lasting for long in today’s pertinent match.
It’s this script which sees our bowling order being fully consisted of picks from Ireland with us beginning with Boyd Rankin whose spell of 3-29 yesterday came at a time when the rest of the unit were being trashed around the park. Shane Getkate and David Delany are going to be accompanying him for today’s match to close out our Dream 11 side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We are making Balbirnie our side’s captain for today’s clash while Delany is picked out as the vice-captain.
