TL-W vs IR-W Dream11 : Ireland look to register a win against Thailand today after suffering two harrowing defeats
With us entering the fray of the culminating stages of the Euro-Asia Quadrangular Series, the importance of today’s match can’t be epitomised enough. With two of the firm favourites for the title squaring off against each for the final time in the showpiece series, the match could eventually end up deciding who emerges from the series as winners.
Having seen both these outfits trounce Scotland and Netherlands, this match comes bearing with it massive ramifications. And it’s Ireland who know they can’t afford even the slightest of slip ups today after having been put down by Thailand earlier, a side who are on a record winning spree at the moment.
In what was a rain curtailed encounter the last time these two teams clashed heads against each other in the league, Thailand went onto win the encounter by the barest of margins. Hitting 54 in 10 overs, they went onto restrict Ireland to 50, sealing a cliff-hanger 4 run win which places them firmly in the pinnacles of the league standings.
And Thailand will be looking to resonate that same performance and come out of this with a win which would ensure their stature as series’ champions. Elsewhere Ireland will be looking to return from what was a dejecting run chase as they look to keep snatching at Thailand’s heels and keep themselves alive in the series.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
Despite us yet to see too many big scores on this wicket, that isn’t down to the quality of the wicket. The surface prevalent here is a good one but a failure of the batting sides to prevail and go onto craft big innings has deterred us from being revelled in massive scores.
We’ll have pristine batting conditions on display today as well with the ball just latching onto the surface in the second part of the match. The side winning the toss will be looking to step out and bat first here.
