ICC T20 World Cup Qualifiers 1st Semi-Final Squad Comparison


With 4 wins in 6 matches, Ireland finished at the top in the Group B points table. Their two losses came against UAE and Canada in the league stage matches. While the UAE bowlers got the better of the Ireland batsmen dismissing them for 125 runs, Canada restricted Ireland to 146-7 defending a 156-runs total. Ireland won 2 consecutive matches after their loss to Canada chasing a target of 106 and 67 runs against Jersey and Nigeria.

While Mark Adair, Gareth Delany and Craig Young helped Ireland in restricting the opposition to such low totals bowling first, Ireland hasn’t faced a tough opposition since the early losses. While it wasn’t a big target Ireland chased in the last two wins, Paul Stirling, Kevin O’Brien, and Andrew Balbirnie were among the top scorers for Ireland. These batsmen in the top-order are Ireland’s strength while all-rounders Gareth Delany and Mark Adair in the middle are crucial to the batting line-up. However, the lack of a tough competitor in the recent matches could affect Ireland’s mindset and approach in this all-important game.


Netherlands made it to the 1st play-off with 5 wins in 6 matches, finishing 2nd in the Group A points table. Netherlands won 3 consecutive matches after their only loss of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifiers 2019 against Papua New Guinea. In the 1st playoff game, Netherlands restricted UAE to 80-9 bowling first and chased down the target with 8 wickets in hand. Prior to that match, Netherlands got Scotland down to 130-8 in 20 overs bowling first and chased 131 runs in 17 overs with 4 wickets in hand.

The Netherlands has competed with two tough competitors like the UAE and Scotland in the last two matches. While the side registered two convincing victories in these matches, the batting performance at the top could have been better. While it was Ryan ten Doeschate’s fifty at number 5 against Scotland that helped chase down the target, Ben Cooper was top batsman for the Netherlands with unbeaten 41 off 53 balls chasing 81 runs against UAE in 15.1 overs. However, the Netherlands has got their bowlers in great touch with Paul van Meekeren, Time van der Gugten and skipper Pieter Seelaar picking up wickets for the team.

Our Prediction for Ireland vs Netherlands

Ireland is favorite to win the match

The Netherlands has faced more competitive opposition in the recent matches as compared to Ireland’s recent wins over Jersey and Nigeria. However, Ireland has also got a strong side with in-form all-rounders. While the bowlers are contributing consistently, the all-rounders have also been consistent with the bat in the middle-order. With a top-order consisting of Paul Stirling, Kevin O Brien, and Andrew Balbirnie, the top Indian betting sites have Ireland as the favorite to win the 1st semi-final match.
