UAE vs IRE 1st ODI Prediction & Betting Tips

Abu Dhabi host Ireland in the 1st match of the 4 match ODI series. The match will be played at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium and will get underway at 9:30 AM Local time

UAE hasn’t played an OD match for more than a year. Their last series was the tri series including USA and Scotland where they managed to win just a single match.

 Rohan Mustafa is their best batsmen and he’s been in some good T-20 form of late. Other batsmen that we expect to do well are Mohammad Usman, Chiragh Suri and Basil Hameed. 
In the bowling department, Ahmed Raza and Junaid Siqqique will be their key man with the ball.

The series will work as a warm up for Ireland who’ll take on Afghanistan, which will be a part of World Cup Super League, post the series.

Ireland have plenty of experience in their squad with players like Paul Stirling, Kevin O Brien, Lorcan Tucker, Harry Tector and Andy Balbirnie. All of them will form a pretty strong batting line up.

The bowling also looks good with Mark Adair, Barry McCarthy and Curtis Campher.

Ireland have a fabulous record against UAE, winning all their previous 6 match. This is a streak we believe will continue in this series.
