International cricket is back. A World Cup is now under a month away, and focus is now beginning to shift towards it even with IPL 2019 in its business end.

But, it’s a bittersweet time for Ireland. The heartbreak in Zimbabwe of missing out on the World Cup will now come to fruition. Excitement is building in nations participating in the World Cup, but there is always the lingering truth that a 10-team World Cup does little to grow the game. However, Ireland have an opportunity to make a further statement after an excellent series against Afghanistan in foreign conditions. With West Indies and Bangladesh also in town, can Ireland upset England as Scotland did last year?

England’s huge summer officially kicks off. Hosting a World Cup as the number one ranked ODI side has them as favourites with the bookmakers, and they will want to get off on the right note after an inconsistent series in the Caribbean earlier in the year. Jofra Archer is set to make his debut and England will be keen to overcome the Alex Hales distraction. Their batting, even with changes expected, remains dangerous. Ruthlessness will be the order of the day ahead of their series against Pakistan.

Key to an Ireland win

Who will play a knock similar to that of Calum McLeod last year? McLeod scored an incredible 140 off 94 balls en-route to Scotland’s first ever win over England. To expect that of a Irish batsman is unfair (even though Kevin O’Brien has done it before), but a platform from the top is crucial to their chances. Conditions are expected to be very cold with a greenish pitch, so how Ireland get through the first 10-15 overs is key. The onus is on the expected Irish top four of William Porterfield, Paul Stirling, Kevin O’Brien and Andy Balbirnie, man of the series vs Afghanistan, to weather any early storms. Can Ireland then finish well via the likes of Gary Wilson?

Also, Dawid Malan and Ben Foakes are expected to make their ODI debuts for England. James Vince will join Malan for a very new opening partnership. Joe Denly has been in and out of England’s plans for a while. So, can Ireland take advantage of England’s inexperience? Can Tim Murtagh find movement to make life challenging for England? What about Boyd Rankin? These two, Ireland’s more experienced players, have a key role in building pressure on England, setting the tone for the rest to follow.

Ireland vs England Only ODI Preview Dream11 – Can Ireland cause England problems?

Key to an England win

A number of players in the England lineup will be looking to stake a claim. Dawid Malan has had a strong season domestically in limited overs cricket, and will be key in negotiating Ireland’s enthusiasm early along with James Vince. Vince is known for starting well, but often can’t go on with the job, which is something England want to see rectified today. With Joe Root and Eoin Morgan in the side, England’s inexperienced players, also including Ben Foakes, have experience to turn to in getting a total on the board. Both Root and Morgan will be key, without a doubt.

Also, what impact can Jofra Archer have on his ODI debut? England’s bowling struggles were apparent in West Indies, and need a boost to further enhance confidence ahead of the World Cup. With Ireland looking like they could lack strong finishing, early wickets for England sets the game right up. With World Cup spots up for grabs, the likes of Liam Plunkett and Tom Curran will also be out to make an impression. Can England enable Adil Rashid to bowl at an under-pressure Irish middle order?

Match Prediction

Any Irish luck in prospect today?

Possibly, given the changes in England’s lineup.

However, there is too much at stake for England right now, with players looking to make a statement. England to win.
