TL-W vs IR-W Dream11: Thailand and Ireland clash heads against each other in battle for the top spot.
The opening day of the Euro-Asia Quadrangular Series made one thing apparent yesterday. Ireland and Thailand are going to dominate this series and make light work of both Scotland and Netherlands given the massive perusal of skilled players at their disposal.
However one thing which still remains an uncertainty though is that who out of these upcoming cricketing countries will end up as the series winner at the culmination of the marquee series. And today’s encounter will help provide clarity on the issue when these two outfits take on each in the second match of the day in a contest which will truly test their mettle.
Day one of the league saw both these sides come out of their contests with comprehensive wins, trouncing their opponents with consummate ease. Scoring a colossal 169 against Netherlands, Ireland’s bowlers complimented their batters to perfection, stalling Netherlands run chase at just 90 to emerge with a gigantic 79 run win.
Elsewhere, Thailand ended up bundling out Scotland for a sordid score of 55 in their defence of 129, a 74 run win which places them right behind Ireland in the league standings. The narrative on the opening day is what adds to the intrigue of today’s encounter with these outfits bound to resonate their displays from yesterday in a bid to reaffirm their credentials as the best side out of the four partaking teams.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
Ireland showed yesterday that if you are ready to apply yourselves on this wicket and bide your time for a couple of overs, this surface s as good for batting as they come. There’s hardly any movement for the bowlers over here with pure cricketing shots being rewarded to the fullest. Paired with the small boundaries, this is a wicket where the runs should pour by today with the side winning the toss looking to bat first.
TL-W vs IR-W Probable Team Squads
Kim Garth, Laura Delany(c), Shauna Kavanagh, Mary Waldron (wk), Gaby Lewis, Una Raymond-Hoey, Celeste Raack, Eimear Richardson, Sophie MacMahon, Lara Maritz, Rebecca Stokell
Naruemol Chaiwai, Nattaken Chantam, Phannita Maya, Soraya lateh, Rosenan Kanoh, Nattaya Boochatham, Chanida Sutthiruang, Sornnarin Tippoch, Suleeporn Laomi, Onnicha Kamchomphu
It’s tricky to call a winner from this one given the way both the outfits went onto showcase their acumen in their previous encounter but we’ll be siding with Ireland for this one solely due to the runs they put up on the scoreboard. Thailand were tentative in making the most of the death overs, something which could push them back in this encounter today.

We have legspinner Celeste Raack come in from Ireland with the rank turner bound to make the ball frisk around massively and leave the right handers treacherously. From Thailand we have opted for Suleeporn Laomi and Onnicha Kamchomphu after the two wrecked havoc in unison in yesterday’s match.
