Betting Tips

  • England can wrap up a series win with a match to spare when they continue at the Ageas Bowl to play the second game of their three-match series against Ireland.
  • David Willey's five-wicket haul and an unbeaten half-century from Sam Billings ensured the hosts - with a slightly makeshift squad – won the first match comfortably.
  • There were positives for Ireland, however - not leas Curtis Campher's unbeaten half-century on debut as he led a recovery from 28/5.

Our Prediction

England are favourites to win

England vs Ireland, 2nd ODI

After a dominant win in the first match of the series, England face Ireland again in game two of their three-ODI series, which is also part of the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League. The match takes place at the Ageas Bowl, Southampton, on August 1 and is scheduled to start at 14:00 local time.

England won the first match of the series by six wickets, despite being without several of their World Cup winners – who are in the test squad instead. David Willey took 5-30 as he helped bowl Ireland out for just 172 last time out, before Sam Billings (67*) and Irish-born England captain Eoin Morgan got the hosts over the line with a good partnership.

It could have been worse for Ireland, who were 28/5 at one point, but debutant Curtis Campher hit an unbeaten half-century to at least give the bowlers something to bowl at. Ireland have a near-full-strength squad but William Porterfield and Boyd Rankin were notable absentees in a younger team first up.

Toss Prediction

England won the toss and elected to bowl first last time out, though it would be a risk if Ireland copied those tactics this time.

Weather Report

There is a small chance of showers in the afternoon but it is only brief and, indeed, it should be completely clear by the evening.

Pitch Condition

The Ageas Bowl is generally a good place for batting, despite how the first game went.

England Team News & Playing 11

ENG Team News

James Vince played instead of Joe Denly last time out, whose international star appears to be waning. Denly and Reece Topley could be among the players pushing for a recall if England look to rotate their side. Liam Dawson was the other player to miss out last time.

ENG Key Players

  • Eoin Morgan: Came in at 78/4 and hit 36* in his 96-run partnership with Sam Billings to help lead England to victory.
  • Jonny Bairstow: A century in the warm-up match but he was out cheap last time out and he still has a point to prove after his test omission.
  • David Willey: A surprise omission from last summer’s World Cup squad, he showed why when he took 5-30 last time out, including four of the first five wickets to fall in a devastating opening spell.

ENG Team Form

England drew their most recent ODI series before this one with South Africa, as Joe Denly helped them over the line in the final game to tie 1-1. This series started in winning fashion, meanwhile, as David Willey’s five wickets helped bowl Ireland out for 170 before Sam Billings’ top-scored to wrap up a six-wicket win.

England Predicted Playing 11

Jonny Bairstow (wk), Jason Roy, Tom Banton, Eoin Morgan, Sam Billings, Joe Denly, Moeen Ali, David Willey, Tom Curran, Adil Rashid, Reece Topley

Ireland Team News & Playing 11

IRE Team News

Barry McCarthy hobbled off during his first over in the opening game so there is likely to be at least one change to this Irish line-up. Curtis Campher and Harry Tector made their ODI debuts last time out, but former England international Boyd Rankin could return for the second game. William Porterfield may also be due a return after the top-order collapse.

IRE Key Players

  • Paul Stirling: Still key at the top of the order even if he did not manage to show it last time out. He did a half-century in one of the warm-up matches though.
  • Kevin O’Brien: Iconic because of his performances against England nearly a decade ago and still going strong as a key Irish batsman even if he bowls less now.
  • Curtis Campher: Caught the eye on his debut, hitting 59* to steady the ship with the bat and allow Ireland to post a respectable score, before taking 1-26.

IRE Team Form

Ireland are looking to avoid a second consecutive 3-0 series whitewash in ODI cricket having suffered the same fate against West Indies last time out. They will need far more from their top-order batsmen though, after being reduced to 28/5 before Curtis Campher’s debut half-century lifted them to 172 all out. In reply, England needed just 27.5 overs to wrap up a six-wicket win.

Ireland Predicted Playing 11

Paul Stirling, Gareth Delany, Andrew Balbirnie (c), William Porterfield, Kevin O’Brien, Curtis Campher, Lorcan Tucker (wk), Simi Singh, Andy McBrine, Boyd Rankin, Craig Young

England vs Ireland Team Form in Last Five Matches



ENG vs IRE Head to Head

England’s next win in this fixture will be their tenth, whereas Ireland still have just THAT Kevin O’Brien World Cup game to their credit. The previous game to this series was a low-scoring one – England chasing 199 to win by four wickets – and the first game of this series was similar. Ireland were all out for 172 and England overcame a few early wickets to win by six wickets.

England vs Ireland Betting Odds

England dominated the first match as expected and are expected to do the same in the second game of the series.

ENG Bet365 Odds

  • ENG to win the match: England are huge favourites to win at 1.071 with Bet365.

IRE Bet365 Odds

ENG Betway Odds

  • ENG to win the match: Betway are also offering 1.06 favourites to win with Betway.
  • ENG top batsman: Neither succeeded last time out, but Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow are both 3.25 with Betway to be England’s top team batsman. Captain Eoin Morgan did impress and he is 5.50, but he is down the order. Top-scorer last time out, Sam Billings, is 12.00 – very generous.
  • ENG top bowler: Adil Rashid is 3.20 to be England’s top team bowler with Betway, while the hero of the last game, David Willey, is 3.75. Saqib Mahmood and Tom Curran are also both 3.75, while Reece Topley is 5.00 as he pushes for a place in the team.

IRE Betway Odds

  • IRE to win the match: Ireland are 8.50 outsiders with Betway to stun England in the second game of the series.
  • IRE top batsman: Paul Stirling is still favourite to be Ireland’s top team batsman at 3.75 with Betway. Andy Balbirnie is 4.00, while Gareth Delany and Kevin O’Brien – who at least showed a little form – are 5.00 and 5.50 respectively. After his debut half-century, Curtis Campher is 9.50 with Betway.
  • IRE top bowler: With Barry McCarthy injured, Boyd Rankin can return to the team for this one. He is 3.25 with Betway to be Ireland’s top team bowler, as is Craig Young. Curtis Campher is 4.50 and picked up a debut wicket last time out.

England vs Ireland Prediction

Even with a supposedly weaker team, England comfortably beat Irleand first up and can make it two from two.

Final Verdict

England to beat Ireland at 1.071 with Bet365 and also 1.06 with Betway.

ENG vs IRE Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket-keeper

    Jonny Bairstow has the bigger reputation and the bigger point to prove and could still prove to be good value at 10.5 credits if he delivers on expectations at the top of the order. Sam Billings was the main man last time out though and he costs just 8.5 credits.

  • Batsmen

    Jason Roy is ten credits and also needs to improve on his opening performance but has done so enough times in the past to suggest there could be fireworks incoming. For Ireland, Kevin O’Brien outscored Paul Stirling last time out and it could have to be a choice of either/or, given Eoin Morgan is also the same price and in excellent form in the opening game.

  • All-rounders

    Curtis Campher showed his quality on his Ireland debut, with a half-century and a wicket, and he costs just eight credits too. That means you can afford punts on both of the top-priced players, Tom Curran and Moeen Ali.

  • Bowlers

    Craig Young and Andy McBrine are both 8.5 credits and select them both and you have filled your Irish quota. David Willey seems the obvious choice at 8.5 credits, meanwhile, after his five-wicket haul first up.

  • Captain/Vice-captain

    David Willey stole the show in the first leg but there were performances elsewhere to suggest plenty of options for captain/vice-captain. Tom Curran could be one choice for at least vice-captain, although Curtis Campher’s debut form is food for thought and Moeen Ali is capable of much more than shown.

ENG vs IRE Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Jason Roy, Eoin Morgan, Kevin O Brien

  • All Rounder:Moeen Ali, Tom Curran (c), Curtis Campher (vc)

  • Wicket Keeper:Jonny Bairstow, Sam Billings

  • Bowler:David Willey, Andy McBrine, Craig Young
