Ireland T20 Tri-Series Match 5: SCO vs NED Preview Dream11 & MyTeam11 Prediction. Scotland vs Netherlands Dream11 & MyTream11

The even nature of the Ireland Tri-Series is on show, with all three teams gaining a win each. No side has won two straight matches yet, which is something they’d like to get right with the World T20 Qualifier less than a month away.

Scotland’s huge win over Netherlands on Monday was followed by a convincing defeat to Ireland. The Netherlands bounced back superbly against the Irish yesterday, and they have the chance to gain some revenge for the massive onslaught against Scotland earlier this week. Which way will this game go?

Key to a Scotland win

Kyle Coetzer and George Munsey put on a show last time out against the Netherlands. Their 200-run stand – third such partnership in T20I history – was some show of power hitting. Avoiding powerplay wickets will be key, as they lost both openers relatively early against Ireland. With Calum MacLeod, Richie Berrington and Ollie Hairs looking in good touch in the middle, a strong platform puts Scotland on the front foot in a high-scoring series.

However, Scotland’s bowlers have not been able to keep the runs down. The score of 194 by the Netherlands against them earlier in the tournament was followed by an easy chase by Ireland, putting onus on the likes of Alasdair Evans and Mark Watt to make inroads early. The Scots were able to take early wickets in their last game against the Netherlands, and will need to do so again with the likes of Max O’Dowd, Ben Cooper and Pieter Seelaar in good touch.

Key to a Netherlands win

Restricting Ireland to a sub-190 score was a fine effort by the Dutch in a high-scoring series. Brandon Glover was outstanding in his return to the team, with the 22-year old restricting Ireland in the middle overs – the period where Scotland ran riot against the Dutch on Monday. With Philippe Boissevain and Pieter Seelaar also going for under the 10 an over mark against Ireland, the key will be for at least three or four bowlers to again achieve this against Scotland.

But, Ben Cooper stole the show with magnificent batting yesterday against Ireland. The Australian-born batsman was in fine touch, along with Max O’Dowd who made his first significant contribution of the series. However, the Dutch will want more from Tobias Visee who has looked out of touch in his two games to date. With Pieter Seelaar and Scott Edwards showing form in the middle order earlier this series, a strong platform can set the Netherlands up really well.
