To Win Match
Ireland 13/2 | Tie 25/1 | India 1/11

Ireland

Ireland have been given the same odds of winning the 2022 T20 World Cup in Australia as Iran have been afforded for the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

The team would like to improve their stock before then and a home series against India provides the opportunity to hunt another big scalp.

Ireland are capable of an upset and have a crop of ever-improving white-ball players to threaten the might of them men in blue.

Paul Stirling could hold the key to Ireland sparking something with the bat but Ireland have a few men who can hit a long ball now.

India

Hardik Pandya gets his chance to lead India having guided the Gujarat Titans to the Indian Premier League title last month.

With KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant not in the squad India turn to a third stand-in skipper while Rohit Sharma is still out injured.

Harshal Patel starred with the ball against South Africa and could be India’s dangerman in seam-friendly conditions.

Ishan Kishan could be devastating if he is allowed to get into full flow and there might be an opportunity for Rahul Tripathi to earn a debut at 31-years-old.

Verdict: India 1/11

India should have too many guns in their arsenal. Perhaps back a 50 to be scored in the match at 7/20 for a bit more value.
