NED vs IRE Fantasy Prediction: Netherlands vs Ireland 2nd ODI – 4 June (Utrecht). Paul Stirling, Max O’Dowd, and Barry McCarthy are the best fantasy picks for this game.
Hosts Netherlands will take on Ireland in the 2nd ODI match of the three-match ODI series. This series is a part of the ODI super league.
Ireland lost the first game, and they would want to level the series, whereas the Netherlands would want to win it. Stirling batted well in the last game, whereas Balbirnie and Porterfield need to step up. The Netherlands will again rely on their pace bowlers to win the game for them.
