ICC T20I World Cup is all set to start with the first round of the tournament taking place between 8 teams of 2 groups with 4 teams qualifying for the next stages. Netherlands and Ireland are two familiar associate teams who have played the ICC tournaments often. But, both teams went past the group stages only once in their campaigns so far. They will need to play their best to qualify for the Super-12s this time around. They have good experience of playing competitive cricket and a win in this match will give the winner a head start with a full member nation Sri Lanka in their group.

Ireland Preview

Ireland will open with their most experienced duo of Paul Stirling and Kevin o Brian followed by the skipper Andrew Balbirnie at No.3. Gareth Delany, Curtis Campher, and Harry Tector are expected to slot in as the middle order batters from No.4 to No.6 respectively. Simi Singh, Mark Adair, and Andy McBrine are capable of scoring vital runs down the order.

They have a strong pace contingent with bowlers Mark Adair, Craig Young, Andy McBrine, and Joshua little in their squad. Simi Singh will be their lead spinner with one of Ben White or George Dockrell making the playing XI. Ben White might be first choice owing to the X-factor he brings with his leg spin.

Top players to bet on:

Gareth Delany – Delany scored 88 runs off 50 balls against a fairly good Bangladesh bowling attack and will look to give a repeat of his performances in this opening match to give his team crucial points early on.

Craig Young – Young had bowling figures of 3/15 & 2/21 in the two warm-up fixtures and will be high on confidence after those good performances.  He will expect to get early wickets and put the opposition on back-foot

Ireland Predicted Playing XI:

Paul Stirling, Kevin O Brian, Andrew Balbirnie (c), Gareth Delany, Curtis Campher/Harry Tector, Lorcan Tucker (wk), Simi Singh, Mark Adair, Andy McBrine, Simi Singh, Ben White

Ireland Actual Playing XI:

Kevin O'Brien, Mark Adair, Simi Singh, Curtis Campher, Joshua Little, Paul Stirling, Ben White, Gareth Delany, Neil Rock, Harry Tector, Andy Balbirnie

Netherlands Preview

Pieteer Seelaar leads the Netherlands team in this T20I World Cup. Stephen Myburgh and Max o Dowd will open the batting followed by Ben Cooper, Colin Ackermann, Ryan ten Doeschate, and keeper Scott Edwards to form the strong middle order combination. They have a number of all-rounders in the middle order to give depth and balance to their playing XI.

Logan Van Beek, Fred Klassen, Paul van Merkaran, and Tim Van Der Gugten will form their pace combination with all-rounder Ben Cooper for company. Skipper Pieter Seelaar and Roelof Van Der Merwe will be their main spin bowlers with Colin Ackermann for company.

Top players to bet on:

Colin Ackermann – Ackermann Scored 37 runs off 21 balls and then came back to take 2 crucial wickets in the warm-up fixture. His ability to contribute with the bat and ball might be a big boost to team`s balance and depth.

Roelof Van Der Merwe – Merwe is a wicket-taking bowler who consistently looks for wickets nd he will be trump card in the middle overs.  He can also smash the ball to long distance in the lower order.

Netherlands Predicted Playing XI:

Stephen Myburgh, Max O Dowd, Ben Cooper, Colin Ackermann, Ryan ten Doeschate, Scott Edwards, Logan Van Beek, Fred Klassen/Paul van Merkaran, Tim Van Der Gugten, Pieter Seelaar, Roelof Van Der Merwe

Netherlands Actual Playing XI:

Logan van Beek, RE Van Der Merwe, Ben Cooper, Pieter Seelaar, Max O'Dowd, Brandon Glover, Fred Klaassen, Colin Ackermann, RN ten Doeschate, Scott Edwards, Bas de Leede

Weather Conditions

Abu Dhabi has bright and sunny weather with very less to no chances of rain on the match day. We expect a full match with no external interruptions.  

Venue Details

Abu Dhabi will be a slightly slower track and the bigger dimensions of the ground will come in for the aid of the bowlers. We expect the pitch to ease down as the match progresses and dew might come into play in the second innings. 

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing is the best option when you are unsure of the pitch as this is the first match at this venue. Chasing is the safe option in T20I matches off late as teams are comfortable chasing even big targets.

Ireland have a strong batting line-up with quality players at the top and middle order but they need to play more consistently at good rate to keep the scorecard moving. They also have a good balanced pace and spin attacks capable of restricting any team. Netherlands has one of the strongest playing XI with a number of batting and bowling all-rounders but they need their first choice players to do the job in first hand. We expect Netherlands to win this match owing to their depth in batting and bowling departments.

Netherlands will win the match
