Online Cricket Betting – Free Tips | England vs Ireland, 2020: 1st ODI
The winners of the World Cup, England, are ready to take on Ireland which starts at The Rose Bowl, Southampton on Thursday. To get used to the weather and climate, the two teams were engaged in an intra-squad warm-up game. Eoin Morgan will continue to supervise the England ODI team as the England Test squad members have all been resting after the tri-match Test series against West Indies.
This series will give Ireland some boost as they have built a strong squad over the last few years and would look to compete against one of the world’s best teams. Meanwhile, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, this game will be played behind closed doors.
It’s going to be a sunny day as the temperature is going to hover around 18-25 degrees C.
The pitch is a fair one to bat on as seen in practice matches played before this series. The previous game saw England Lions chase 296 down in just 34.4 overs, providing a fair indication of the pitch’s existence.
The bowlers should get some help off the surface, with the spinners in the middle overs likely to play a significant role. All teams will look to win the toss and bat first with the conditions all fine for match day.
