IREW vs ENGW Match Prediction - Feb 13, 2023

The Ireland Women’s team kicks off their ICC Women’s T20 World Cup on Monday as they face neighbors England Women in a Group B fixture at the Boland Park Stadium in Paarl.

Going by the odds offered by most cricket betting sites, the Ireland Women will likely have a tough time in the middle against a rampant England team. However, looking at her recent form, we can surely say that they will not go down without a fight. 


IREW vs ENGW Team Previews

Ireland Women

This is the 4th time that Ireland Women have qualified for the marquee event. On the previous three occasions, they had crashed out in the group stage itself, and are yet to register a win on the big stage. However, they have a good opportunity to better their record here as they have some terrific players in the squad.

Ireland Women have played well over the past year and have won 8 T20I matches, which is their joint-best performance ever in the shortest format of the game. This includes a historic 2-1 win over Pakistan in their backyard, as well as a memorable win over South Africa.

They finished 2nd in Group A during the Qualifiers and won against Zimbabwe Women in the semi-finals to face Bangladesh Women in the finals, where despite an inspiring performance by the likes of Laura Delany and Arlene Kelly, ended up losing the match by just 7 runs. However, the team seems to have put the loss behind them and begun the World Cup preparations on a positive note, putting up some good performances in the warm-up matches.

Their crowning glory came when they defeated the defending champions Australia Women by 3 wickets in a high-scoring encounter.

The batting was on point as 4 batters scored more than 20 runs, which is no mean feat against a strong bowling attack like Australia. With that win, Ireland Women have sent a strong signal to their opponents stating that they are not the ones to be taken lightly.

England Women

The England Women’s team has begun their campaign on a positive note, defeating the West Indies Women by 7 wickets. Sophie Ecclestone bowled a brilliant spell, picking up 3 wickets for 23 runs, and helped restrict West Indies Women to a modest total of 135. Sophia Dunkley was in good form at the top of the order and an unbeaten 67-run partnership between Nat Sciver and Heather Knight saw them through with 7 wickets in hand.

The England Women’s team has a strong batting line-up, where in addition to Sophia Dunkley, Danielle Wyatt, and Alice Capsey are capable of playing a big inning. Nat Sciver, who was awarded the ICC Player of the year in 2022 will be hoping to continue with her excellent form in limited-overs cricket. Katherine Sciver Brunt is most probably playing her last T20 World Cup and will be looking to make an impact through some good performances.

Overall, the England Women’s team has a pretty balanced squad and is quite capable of overcoming any challenge thrown at them.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at Boland Park Stadium in Paarl isn’t the best to bat on as it provides plenty of assistance to the bowlers. The pitch does behave well during the initial overs but does tend to deteriorate as the game progresses. The average first-inning score here is around 135-140 which is a par score.

The spinners play an important role here, especially in the second innings. The weather is expected to be clear with plenty of sunshine and temperatures of around 28-32 degrees Celsius. 


IREW vs ENGW Betting Tips

While the Ireland Women’s team has seen a huge improvement in their performance over the past year, they are still short of the firepower required to beat a side like England. On the other hand, England was clinical in their performance during the match against West Indies Women and we feel they will continue their winning run.

Bet on the England Women to win.

    Top Bowler for England Women

    Sophie Ecclestone (3.25)


Sophie Ecclestone bowled a brilliant spell in the opening match played on this very ground against West Indies Women, taking 3 wickets for 23 runs and setting the tone for her team’s victory. According to the latest ICC rankings, she is the number 1 bowler in the T20 format and has been in excellent form of late. We are therefore backing her to be the top bowler for her team in this match.
