Have a look at these online cricket betting tips for more insight into what to expect from this match. Be sure to consider the good odds we highlight.
Select Stirling as Top Ireland Batsman
Paul Stirling is probably Ireland’s best batsman and has spent an extended period in the United Arab Emirates this year. He will be used to the conditions.
Stirling has plenty of experience in international cricket and for domestic T20 teams around the world. This hard-hitting opener is a popular betting choice with Indian fans.
Bet on Stirling to be the top batsman in this match at 3.0 with 22Bet. They also have him in the bowling and player of the match markets.
Back van der Merwe as Top Netherlands Bowler
Roelof van der Merwe used to play for South Africa and has forged a good career abroad. He has played in the T20 Blast as well.
He’s an all-rounder, but it’s his role with the ball we are most interested in here. Van der Merwe can get some sharp turn and extra bounce in challenging conditions.
Pick the spinner to be the top bowler for the Netherlands at 4.5 with Betway. The Dutch will need a big performance from him. This bet could bring great value.
Pick Myburgh and Stirling in an Accumulator
1xBet are back with their interesting accumulator outcomes. They were really good with these during the recent IPL.
They have several accumulators on offer for this match alone. We like their price of 2.88 for Paul Stirling and Stephan Myburgh to hit a four and six each.
That’s very doable for the Irish star and Netherlands big-hitter. There are other accumulators that pair team-mates and opposition together.
