T20 World Cup United States vs Ireland: Tips and suggested bets

Planet Sport presents tips and suggested bets for the Group A match between the United States and Ireland from Central Broward Park and Broward County Stadium in Lauderhill, Florida.

Before this tournament got underway not many would have pegged a match between the United States and Ireland as a potential group decider.

Fewer still would have believed that the United States would be a win away from qualifying for the next phase of the tournament ahead of Pakistan.

Pakistan will be firmly behind the Irish, who are just about out of the running for qualification thanks to a very poor net run rate.

Ireland will keep themselves as well as Pakistan and Canada in the hunt to progress if they can halt the United States.

Pakistan would become favourites to progress if Ireland manage to get the win over the United States as they have a better net run rate than any side in their group other than India, who have already qualified.

The United States will wrap up their group campaign in the match against Ireland and would guarantee progression if they win the match and with that secure the best result in their history as a team.

Ireland still have their fate in their own hands with a later showdown with Pakistan set to either be a dead rubber or the group decider.

The Florida weather has been unpredictable and a washout would be enough for the United States to progress as the single point would put them out of reach of the chasing pack.

 

United States vs Ireland: Suggested bets

It might have been a tough start to the tournament for Ireland but they have an experienced top order led by the likes of Andy Balbirnie, who offers consistent runs and might not be under pressure to score as quickly as could be required in more batter-friendly conditions.

When it comes to taking wickets for Ireland, Mark Adair keeps finding a way and his type of bowling could make the most of the surface in Lauderhill. Adair has taken more T20I wickets in the last year than any other Irish bowler.

Aaron Jones has been the standout dangerman with the bat for the United States and a batter who has both the patience and explosive power to craft a big innings. Jones has been the man to rise to the occasion before in this tournament and could be the hero again.

Saurabh Netravalkar became a new hero for this team against Pakistan and has the qualities to trouble the Irish top order. Netravalkar should be the bowler who takes the first wicket for the United States.
