NL vs IRE Team Previews


Netherlands currently occupy 15th position in the International Cricket Council's rankings for men's T20I teams. They are four positions lower than Ireland. The Dutch will go into this match against the Irish on the back of a tough challenge against Scotland earlier in the tournament.

Michael Levitt is well worth keeping an eye on with the bat. He is new to international cricket - and has already hit a T20I century. Levitt is a powerful hitter and should be full of confidence ahead of this match and Netherlands' T20 World Cup campaign next month. 

Paul van Meekeren has been playing international cricket for a decade and brings plenty of experience to the team's bowling attack. The veteran seamer played for the Dubai Capitals in the International League T20 earlier this year. That exposure would have been good for his growth on the global stage.

Ireland put in a reasonable showing against Pakistan in T20I cricket recently. They won the first match before losing the next two. There is momentum to build on. Ireland can once again show that they are not necessarily minnows at the T20 World Cup. First, though, they will need to impress against Netherlands.

Harry Tector should be key for Ireland with the bat. He was consistent against Pakistan, putting in scores of 26, 32 and 30 not out. He will want to start converting promising starts - and soon - and this match and tri-series is an opportune time to start doing just that.

Mark Adair is an important asset in Ireland's attack. He has a lot of experience as well and can take confidence from his three-wicket haul against Pakistan in the series decider recently. Barry McCarthy is another seamer the Irish can lean on against Netherlands.

Sportpark Westvliet in the Hague will be the venue for this match. It hosted the first fixture of the tri-series, too, when Scotland won the toss and opted to field first.

It is likely the team to win the toss this time will elect to bowl first as well. Teams prefer to chase - not set - targets in this format.

Pitch and Conditions

This ground last hosted T20I cricket in 2022, when Netherlands and New Zealand posted first-innings totals of 147 and 148.

A first-innings score of 150-plus can be considered competitive here. Both teams might play two specialist slow bowlers. 

Rain is forecast in the Hague on matchday. Chasing an adjusted total could suit the team batting second.

NL vs IRE Betting Tips

Netherlands have homeground advantage and a spirited squad, but Ireland have a lot more experience and depth - and recently beat Pakistan in at least one T20I. The Irish should be the Dutch in this tri-series encounter.
