ENG vs IRE Fantasy Tips

  • Paul Stirling will open the batting and is the most experienced Irish player in this team. He will be a top pick.
  • Matthew Potts has just played 2 ODIs and has not been able to make an impact. You can avoid him in small leagues
  • Will Jacks is also expected to bowl some overs of spin along with his batting which makes him a good choice for captain in Grand Leagues.
  • Bristol is one of the high scoring venues in England so it is important to cover all the main batters in the team.
  • Curtis Campher was excellent in the CWC Qualifiers in Zimbabwe where he scored a century and also picked up five wickets in a single game.
  • Joe Root has scored more than 6000 runs in this format at an average of 50. He will be an automatic captaincy pick.
  • Rehan Ahmed is a very talented leg-spinner and he might make an impact in the middle overs. He picked up four wickets in the previous match.
  • Sam Hain scored 89 runs in the previous match but if England are chasing he can be left out of the team.
