SCT vs IRE Match Prediction - Oct 19, 2022

Scotland defeated the West Indies in a famous victory that will further the cause of associate cricket even more. We have had two massive upsets in the T20 World Cup 2022 already and the round-one matches just became a lot more interesting. 

Ireland also suffered a bit of an upset as it lost to Zimbabwe in the previous match. That will put a big dent in its quest for qualification for the Super-12 stage. Most cricket betting sites have Ireland as the favorite heading into this contest.

SCT vs IRE Team Previews


Scotland played very well in its match against West Indies. There were no nerves or fear of the big occasion and the cricket they played was very smart. In a lot of ways, this next match against Ireland is a bit more tricky. Scotland and Ireland used to play each other quite often but that has not been the case in recent years. 

Historically, Scotland has struggled against Ireland. In the previous match, George Munsey played an excellent inning to help guide his team to a good total. None of the other batters did much although a few got starts. There was also just one six hit in the entire inning. 

The bowling lineup for Scotland is not great but Mark Watt showed why he is regarded so highly on the international circuit. His three wickets for just 12 runs in tough situations changed the match. Electric fielding by Scotland also played a role. 

The risks that we can identify are weaknesses in the batting lineup and the extra pressure of playing as the favorite. 

Scotland Playing 11

Matthew Cross, George Munsey, Richie Berrington, Calum MacLeod, Michael Jones, Safyaan Sharif, Michael Leask, Chris Greaves, Mark Watt, Josh Davey, Bradley Wheal.


Ireland went down to Zimbabwe in quite spectacular fashion. First, it let Zimbabwe off the hook by feeding Sikandar Raza his strengths. From 79 for 4, Zimbabwe got to 174 as Raza ended with 82. The top order of Ireland was then blown away by the Zimbabwe pacers. 

Such games can happen in T20 cricket and the momentum can be very difficult to arrest. 

We do have a bit more hope from Ireland in this match. Their batting basically capitulated and they still got past 140. Paul Stirling, Harry Tector, Lorcan Tucker, and Andrew Balbirnie can all bat. Just one of them needs to have a decent outing and Ireland should be able to get to a defendable total. 

Josh Little is the standout bowler in the group and has decent support in Mark Adair, George Dockrell, and Barry McCarthy. Ireland had a bad day in the previous match and that is why the odds being offered on it are so attractive. This could be a great opportunity for punters.

SCT vs IRE Toss Prediction

The team that wins the toss may prefer to bat first. The importance of the toss is much lesser in Australia than somewhere like the UAE. This will make the contests more even over the duration of the contest.

Pitch and Conditions

The conditions in Hobart are expected to be a bit chilly but dry. Not much rain is forecast for match day. The pitch was good for batting and we thought both teams missed out on truly taking advantage of the shorter boundaries. Still, going by what we have seen so far, a score of around 160-170 seems easily achievable. 


SCT vs IRE Betting Tips

We are going to back Ireland to win this contest. We know Scotland is coming into this match on the back of an impressive win against the West Indies but from a betting point of view, the risk/reward ratio is much better on Ireland right now. The odds being offered are generous and in cricketing terms, Ireland is superior to Scotland in pretty much all aspects. 

We expect the Irish to hit back hard.

Bet on Ireland to win.
