Contrarily, Ireland suffered a 31-run defeat to Zimbabwe and made matters extremely difficult for themselves in terms of their hopes of making the Super 12 team.

Pitch Report

The batters have perfect conditions at Hobart’s Bellerive Oval. The hitters enjoy themselves on a steady-paced surface as the ball comes onto the bat. As the game goes on, the pitch gets better for the batters, hence teams typically prefer chasing. But teams that batted first won the first two World Cup games held at this location. Around 160–170 runs are predicted to be the par score.

Scotland: George Munsey, Michael Jones, Matthew Cross (wk), Richard Berrington, Calum MacLeod, Michael Leask, Mark Watt, Chris Greaves, Josh Davey, Safyaan Sharif, and Brad Wheal.

SCO vs IRE: Powerplay Prediction

Both sides have quality bats in their lineups, so they will both want to capitalize on their early-game momentum by putting up a tonne of runs in the extra innings. Scotland will aim to score 45 to 50 runs in the first six overs, which would be a crucial total. Ireland, on the other hand, might score 35–40 runs while on the man advantage.

SCO vs IRE: Death overs Prediction

Both teams have powerful, destructive hitters who are able to change the course of the game at any point, therefore death overs are not an issue for either one of them. Scotland could score 40 to 45 runs in the final overs. Ireland, on the other hand, could score 35 runs in the final few overs.

SCO vs IRE Who will win the match?

Following a strong opening game, Scotland significantly increased their prospects of making it to the Super 12. To advance in the competition, Ireland will need to play their hardest possible game to defeat the Scots. Ireland and Scotland have faced each other thirteen times in Twenty20 internationals, with Ireland winning eight times while Scotland has won three.

Scotland’s victory over the West Indies is a huge boost as they seem destined to go to the World Cup’s Super 12.

So, according to our prediction for tomorrow’s match Scotland vs Ireland, Scotland is the favorite to win due to their current form, head-to-head history, and overall confidence.
