The men in blue will be seen in action after two months of IPL. Cricket fans will now shift from cheering from a regional team comprising international players to now cheer for their national teams. It goes without saying, even cricket betting has now shifted from IPL to international matches. The Indian team will be going on the Ireland tour towards the end of June 2018 to play two T20 matches there. One is being held on 27th June and other on 29th at The Village, Dublin. Though predicting for betting on the second match will be easier than the first match and here are some things that one must keep in mind.
Virat Kohli will be leading the Indian team from the front and will look forward to getting back into his form after his neck injury. The captain will be ably backed Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey, MS Dhoni and Dinesh Karthi in the batting lineup. It will also be interesting to watch how all-rounders like Hardik Pandya and Washington Sundar will perform. The India squad also has amazing bowlers like Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Siddharth Kaul, Bhuvneshvar Kumar, Umesh Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah.
Since Ireland has not announced its T20 squad yet, it is difficult to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the lineup. However, a lot will depend on the first match to be played between these two teams on 27th June. To make better bets or play fantasy cricket, one needs to closely observe the pitch conditions and performances of players during the previous T20 match.This can help decide the playing XI for your fantasy cricket team.
Playing fantasy cricket for this match without observing analysis or watching highlights of the first match may lead to unwise decisions. Therefore, take into forms of players, before choosing the team you want play with or bet on. The fact remains- India is the stronger team and is more likely to win.
