ENG vs IRE Betting Tips

  • Although he was out of form during the series win over New Zealand, Joe Root is a top player and we expect him to be England’s highest run scorer in this match. Luke Wood is an impressive attacking pace bowler and he is our tip for England’s top wicket taker at Headingley.
  • Captain Paul Stirling has a top score of 177 in this format and he is our pick for Ireland’s highest run scorer on Wednesday. Barry McCarthy was in good form against India in the T20Is last month and has 69 ODI wickets in his career. We expect him to be Ireland’s top wicket taker against England.
  • Playing at his home ground, we expect Joe Root to find some form and we recommend choosing him to hit over 29.5 runs in this game.

ENG vs IRE 1st ODI Match Prediction & Betting Tips

England and Ireland begin their three-match ODI series on Wednesday afternoon in Leeds. The hosts come into this match after beating New Zealand 3-1 earlier this month. Ireland won their last ODI, by 2 wickets, against Nepal earlier in the summer at the start of July. Read on as we preview this day-night game. The ODI gets underway in Yorkshire at 12:30 local time.

England began the series with New Zealand badly but were in excellent form by the end. However, this is an almost completely different side and the players involved in this match will want to show off their skills.

Ireland have picked up good results in ODIs of late but they do tend to struggle up against the top teams. They will fancy their chances against this England line-up.

ENG vs IRE Match Toss Prediction

Three of the last five ODIs at Headingley have been won by the team batting first and we expect both skippers to choose to bat first if they win the toss ahead of this series opener.

ENG vs IRE Pitch Report

Headingley has produced a good batting wicket throughout the 2023 summer. Players can expect to see good consistent bounce throughout the match.

Overcast conditions are forecast throughout this game and there could well be a delayed start with rain expected. However the weather will improve across the afternoon.

England Team News & Playing 11

ENG Team News

Zak Crawley will captain England for the first time across this series with his Test opening partner Ben Duckett as vice-captain. 28 year old right-hander Sam Hain has been a regular run scorer at domestic level and is expected to make his international debut in this clash.

ENG Key Players

  • Joe Root - The right-hander has seen his ODI average dip under 50 after low scores against New Zealand but he has plenty of previous big scores including 16 centuries in this format.
  • Will Jacks - The all-rounder has made his debut for England across all formats over the last 12 months and is recognised as a spinning threat as well as a big hitting batter.
  • Luke Wood - The left-arm quick bowler is very rarely out of the wickets at this level. He often concedes runs but will bowl with genuine pace.

ENG Team Form

England come into this match looking for their fourth successive ODI victory with the last three all by large margins.

Ireland Team News & Playing 11

IRE Team News

Just as Ireland have done over the last 24 months, there were no surprises in their squad for this series. Paul Stirling will lead the team who have got a competitive group together and are prioritising caps and a growing team-spirit ahead of new players.

IRE Key Players

  • Paul Stirling - The skipper was not in the best of form in recent international appearances but he hit 66 for Knights two innings ago in domestic cricket.
  • Harry Tector - The 23 year old middle order batter is an excellent ODI player with over 1500 runs to his name at an average of 50.43 from 36 innings.
  • Barry McCarthy - The experienced pace bowler should get some assistance from the overhead conditions in Leeds and will want the English batters to take him on.

IRE Team Form

Ireland have beaten Nepal, USA and UAE over their last three ODIs.

Ireland Predicted Playing 11

Andy McBrine, Paul Stirling (c), Curtis Campher, Andy Balbirnie, Harry Tector, Lorcan Tucker (wk), George Dockrell, Gareth Delany, Mark Adair, Barry McCarthy, Josh Little

Who will win England vs Ireland 1st ODI Match?

The two teams are far better matched than they would have been if England had selected their full strength side. However, there are far more match-winners with both bat and ball in the England side ahead of this game.

ENG vs IRE Top Team Batsmen

With the bat, Zak Crawley, Ben Duckett and Joe Root are our tips for England. Right-handed Crawley impressed during the Men’s Ashes earlier in the summer and his naturally attacking style should suit this format. Duckett has hit two hundreds and 10 half-centuries across international cricket.

For Ireland, Paul Stirling, Curtis Campher and Harry Tector are our picks with the bat for Ireland. Campher is being promoted to number three in the batting order for this series and he is recognised as having a strong technique. Tector has a top score of 140 in ODIs.

ENG vs IRE Top Team Bowlers

Luke Wood, Matthew Potts and Brydon Carse are our bowling choices for England. Carse played in the recent T20I series and ODIs against New Zealand, picking up 5 wickets along the way. Potts has never let England down in his Test appearances which have yielded 23 wickets from six matches.

With the ball, Josh Little, Barry McCarthy and Mark Adair are our recommendations for Ireland. Experienced bowling all-rounder Adair has a strong ODI record and should get movement through the air in this match. Little is an expensive but wicket taking bowler.
