IRE vs UAE Team Previews


Ireland started this tournament as one of the favorites to make it to the Super Sixes. They were drawn into a relatively easier Group B and needed just a couple of wins to make it through. However, the team was off to a disastrous start, losing the opening fixture against Oman, and couldn’t recover after that. Ireland had faced 3 consecutive losses and had been eliminated from the race.

It has been a poor batting effort, especially from the top order, and that hasn’t allowed Ireland to put up match-winning scores. The opening pair of Paul Stirling and Andy McBrine has been rather inconsistent, and even the middle-order batting made up of experienced campaigners like Harry Tector, Andrew Balbirnie, and Lorcan Tucker has been a big letdown.

There have been a couple of bright spots in Ireland’s performances but they have been few and far apart, and haven’t had any impact on the team’s fortunes. George Dockrell and Curtis Campher put up some strong resistance with the bat and would like to put up a similar performance here.

Coming to the bowling, Mark Adair is the leading wicket-taker for the team with 9 wickets, but Josh Little has been disappointing with the new ball. In the spin department, Ireland will rely on George Dockrell and Gareth Delaney to put up a good performance.

United Arab Emirates

Just like their opponents, the UAE is winless after 3 matches and has already been eliminated. Nevertheless, they will be looking for a consolation win here.

The batting has been a big disappointment for the UAE. A lot was expected from the likes of Muhammad Waseem, Vriitya Aravind, and Rohan Mustafa. These are some of the most experienced players on the UAE team and have played in T20 leagues around the world, gaining valuable international experience. However, that has accounted for nothing here in terms of performance.

The team also has some quality all-rounders in the form of Basil Hameed and Ali Naseer, but they too have lacked consistency. The story continues when it comes to bowling. The pace attack, led by Junaid Siddiqui, Zahoor Khan, and Ali Naseer has bowled well in patches but hasn’t come up with any match-winning spells.

Spinner Karthik Meiyappan has picked up just 1 wicket in 3 matches, while Aayan Khan has picked up 2.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at the Bulawayo Athletic Club is good to bat on. There is a good amount of bounce and pace on offer and the batsmen will be able to go through with their shots. The quicker bowlers will get some movement early on but the pitch should settle down nicely. A score of around 280 is a par score here. The weather is expected to remain clear with pleasant temperatures. 


IRE vs UAE Betting Tips

Both teams are enduring a terrible run of form and will find it equally hard to bounce back. However, we feel that Ireland has a slightly better chance of winning here. They enjoy a good record against UAE and a couple of their batsmen are in good form.

Bet in Ireland to win.

  1. Rajabets


    Highest opening partnership

    UAE (2.10)


The opening pair for Ireland, Andy McBrine and Paul Stirling hasn’t been able to get going and Stirling in particular hasn’t been in the best of forms. We are therefore backing the UAE to put up a bigger opening partnership.

    Ireland top bowler

    Mark Adair (4.50)


Adair has shown good form in this tournament, picking up 9 wickets in 3 matches. He has picked up 3-wicket hauls in each of his last 2 outings and we are backing him to bowl another good spell here.

    Paul Stirling Total Runs

Paul Stirling has had an extremely poor tournament so far, scoring a total of 29 runs in 3 matches. He has failed to touch the 30-run mark in each of his last 4 One Day innings and we expect his poor form to continue.
