Preview for Dream11 Fantasy

Ireland looks to bounce back into winnings ways as they face Jersey in Match 32 of the ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier 2019. Both teams have won two games each although Jersey has exceeded expectations so far. In spite of boasting international experience and highly talented players such as Paul Stirling and Mark Adair, Ireland has underwhelmed with a loss to Canada denting their chances of qualification. Similarly, Jersey also comes into this game on the back of a loss to Hong Kong.

Ireland will fancy their chances heading into the game with Paul Stirling in fine form for them. With 168 runs to his name, Stirling is also well complemented by Gareth Delany and Andy Balbirnie, which gives them the favourites tag for this game. In spite of the aforementioned, Jersey has already pulled off an upset by beating hosts UAE earlier in the week and will certainly prove to be worthy opponents for the Irish on Friday.

Weather Condition/Report:

Clear weather albeit with temperature in excess of 30 degrees Celsius is expected in Abu Dhabi. Humid conditions are also on the cards with humidity of 59%, according to AccuWeather. While there is no chance of rain, the weather is perfect for a riveting game of cricket.


Pitch Condition/Report:

The pitch has slowed down considerably over the course of the tournament. Although Ireland and Canada posted 170+ scores in the first two games at the venue, the pitch saw a change in the next two with spinners playing a crucial role due to the amount of turn on offer. Batting first would be ideal with the pitch slowing down as the game progresses.

Average first innings score: 135 (Four ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier 2019 games)

Top Picks:

Paul Stirling has a reputation of scoring quick runs at the top of the order. With 168 runs at a strike rate of 134, Stirling is certainly one to keep an eye in this fixture. Gareth Delany is one of Ireland’s best players in the tournament. While he is known for his leg-spin, his whirlwind knock of 89 in just 49 runs against Oman holds him in good stead.

Although Jersey lost its previous game, Ben Stevens’ performance bodes well for them. The all-rounder picked two wickets and also scored 39 runs to keep Jersey in the hunt. These players should be picked in the Dream11 Fantasy side.
