Weather Conditions

Melbourne have a bright and sunny weather with no interruptions expected on the match day. Melbourne will have a true and bouncy pitch where the new ball might seam and swing around effectively.

Venue Details

MCG is one of the iconic venues in the cricketing circuit and the ground will have huge boundary dimensions which might be a big positive for spinners especially. We expect scores to be around 160-180 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing has been recent trend in the limited overs cricket with nearly 80-90% winning ratio for teams batting second. No Target is safe nowadays with bigger bats and aggressive mindsets.

Ireland despite losing a lot of matches they have played against top nations such as India, New Zealand, South Africa, and Afghanistan (won the series 3-2) in the build up to the World Cup. And we expect some impressive performances from them and cause a few upsets in the tournament. Namibia was very impressive in their maiden appearance and beat Scotland, Netherlands, and Ireland who are better ranked than them in the first tournament itself. We expect Ireland to win this match owing to their experience and all-round strength.

Ireland will win the match.
