Teams Preview

Netherlands Preview

The Netherlands won the first game of the series against Ireland by just 1 run and broke the bad mark of their bad records against Ireland after 11 years. This was the 1st ODI win after 11 years against Ireland. Although they failed to score huge runs on the board in the first ODI, they managed to defend the target of 195 runs by just 1 run. Captain Pieter Seelaar’s brilliant spell of 3 wickets for 27 runs in his 9 overs was the game-changing moment for the Netherlands team. They defended the total in the last over of the match.

In the second ODI of the series, Netherlands’ batting collapsed terribly in front of Ireland’s Craig Young. They fought well and managed to score just 157 runs on the board which had easily been chased down by Ireland’s top-order batting unit. If we look at the team’s performance in the past few matches, they are struggling in the batting department and hardly managed to put a defendable target in this limited-overs format. This concern in the batting department might be a thing to worry about for them in this series decider match on 7th June.

Stephan Myburgh, Max O'Dowd, Ben Cooper, Pieter Seelaar(c), Scott Edwards(wk), Bas de Leede, Vivian Kingma, Timm van der Gugten, Fred Klaassen, Logan van Beek, Brandon Glover.

Ireland Preview

This is Ireland’s third consecutive away series and this time they are on a tour of the Netherlands. After a defeat in the first game of the series against the Netherlands by just 1 run, they made a strong comeback in the second ODI to win that game by 8 wickets. In the first match of the series after restricting hosts on just 195 with the help of Josh Little’s 3 for 32 runs and Craig Young’s 3 for 34 runs, they failed to chase down that target by just 1 run. Paul Stirling scored 69 from 112 balls in the top order. Simi Singh tried to help his team to clinch a victory but his not-out knock of 45 went in vain.

In the second ODI, again they were brilliant in their bowling performance to all-out hosts on 157 only and this time they have managed to chase it down easily to win the game by 8 wickets. Craig Young was phenomenal in that game and took 4 wickets on 18 runs only. Captain Andy Balbirnie played a knock of not-out 63 to help the team in this easy chase. The overall team is looking strong in both batting as well bowling and will like to claim a victory over hosts in this series decider on 7th June.

Weather Conditions

The weather will be mostly cloudy on match day and there is a 20-30% chance of precipitation on the match day. The maximum and minimum temperature of the ground will be in the range of 20°C-11°C respectively.

Venue Details

The venue for this match is Sportpark Maarschalkerweerd. It is one of the most famous grounds in the Netherlands and conducted just 2 ODIs games here.

Toss: To Bat

The ground has conducted just 2 ODIs here before and they were from this ongoing series only. The pitch is easy while chasing the target. From 2 matches, the team who had batted first registered a victory in one game, and the team who had bowled first won the second game. It will be good for the team to win the toss and choose to bat first on this ground.

NED vs IRE Winning Prediction

By looking at both teams and their current form, Ireland’s team has a slight upper hand over Netherland’s team. In the batting unit, Ireland’s top order is looking strong against the Netherlands. Batting all-rounder Paul Stirling is looking in good touch this series so he might be a threat to Netherlands’ bowling unit. On the other hand, the Netherlands’ side lacks experience so they will have to perform extraordinarily to beat Ireland in this decider.

We predict that Ireland will defeat the Netherlands.
