With a victory over Afghanistan in their opening match, England got off to a strong start in the competition. After their dreadful loss to the Sri Lankans, the Irish team will feel some criticism in this encounter. In this game, Ireland’s bowling assault needs to mount a formidable comeback.
Rain is expected on October 26 and the game may be postponed due to the weather. Here, bowlers have had good returns on consistently good surfaces. In this setting, batsmen must exert a lot of effort to score runs. First-batting team would need to aim for a total of 160 runs. The MCG pitch gives a lot to quick bowlers at the beginning of innings, hence most teams have chosen to bowl first there recently.
Chris Woakes was able to be added to England’s lineup against Afghanistan after clearing a last-minute fitness test and providing useful batting down the order. Even though it wasn’t a flawless performance, England was remarkable, and we anticipate the same team in this game. In their last six T20I matches, England has won five of them and has not suffered a loss.
Again, Ireland did not make any changes for their encounter against Sri Lanka on Sunday, and we anticipate that they will use the same starting lineup today. Josh Little, a strike-bowler, and Simi Singh, a spinner, were both costly in the previous game, but we don’t think they’ll be benched for this match. Despite being soundly defeated by Sri Lanka on Sunday, Ireland had won three of their previous five games.
England is predicted to win this match.
