IRE vs SCO Dream11 : Ireland and Scotland fight it out for one last time as the summit clash looms to serenade the winner
For the upcoming teams in the European region, the T20 Tri-Series fathomed between Ireland, Scotland and Netherlands was a massive stage. It was a chance to showcase their immense pool of skill set at the international stage, a rhetoric Ireland and Scotland have one last chance to fulfil today.
For both Ireland and Scotland, the journey to the final was marred by the one defeat apiece with Ireland losing to Netherlands while Scotland were defeated by Ireland. Winning three matches in succession, Ireland ended up falling to a massively stunning defeat against Netherlands in their final league stage match, a result the side will be looking to put behind them come today’s imminent encounter.
With the side undoubtedly the best team in the series and having defeated Scotland twice in the series earlier as well, Ireland will be hardly perturbed by their first defeat. It’s a complete outfit, one packed with star performers in both the departments of the game, names who’ll be looking to add another laurel into the side as they look to emulate the same rousing displays which saw them top the league standings.
Elsewhere for Scotland, yesterday’s must win encounter transpired perfectly for the side who transcended into their clash against Netherlands meaning business. Limiting Netherlands to the lowest total of this series, Scotland’s bats complimented their bowlers perfectly to maraud their way to a 6 wicket win, a soiree they needed just 13.2 overs to achieve.

IRE vs SCO Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
Although Scotland’s Cross was involved heavily with the gloves yesterday, delivering a run-out, stumping and catch, we are opting for Ireland’s Gary Wilson only due to his batting position. With Cross getting a role way too down in his side’s order, he should hardly get any balls in the middle today, something Wilson doesn’t have to bother with.
IRE vs SCO Dream11 Batsmen
We are beginning with Scotland’s match winners from yesterday’s encounter first, getting in opener George Munsey who scored a solid knock of 27 in the opening slot for the side. Callum MacLeod failed to propel his innings into a big one yesterday but having shown the requisite knowhow of the game, he should be in for a good score today, seeing us get him in as well.
Elsewhere we have an entire trivalent come into our side from Ireland with us beginning with Kevin O’Brien. One of the sides most consistent bats over their ascendancy in the cricketing fraternity, he took just 16 balls to make 30 yesterday, seeing him come into our side. With 60 in 40 balls as he smashed his way to 8 boundaries, Harry Tector was always going to be selected by us along with Andrew Balbarnie who got 45 against Netherlands.
IRE vs SCO Dream11 All-Rounders
We have selected the one all-rounder a piece from either setup, beginning with Scotland’s Richie Berrington. His 27 runs with the bat and the one wicket yesterday was an epitome of the role the side have accorded him with, a performance they’ll be wishing ardently he can deliver today as well.
On the other hand, we have decided to venture in with Gareth Delany from Ireland with hi delivering a good display when these two sides had previously met in the series.
IRE vs SCO Dream11 Bowling Order
With this pitch set to see the batsmen thrive, we have blatantly decided to go in with the bare minimum requisite of the three bowlers, choosing the two from Ireland with both Shane Getkate and Mark Adair coming in for us as we choose the frontline pacers for this encounter. From Scotland we have chosen Alasdair Evans after his 1-6 with the ball yesterday.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Balbirnie has been selected as our outfit’s captain for today while we are going in with Tector as our vice-captain.
