Ireland vs USA

Ireland vs USA Prediction and Betting Tips | ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifiers 2023 

Here are our match prediction and betting tips for forthcoming Ireland vs USA fixture on June 30.

Eliminated teams, USA and Ireland will take on each other to claim the 7th spot in the tournament. They both had a disastrous campaign. After losing the first three games of the tournament, Ireland won their last league stage match against UAE. They posted their highest total in the tournament and won the game by 138 runs in the 39th over of the second innings.

Ireland will play 1 game in this round and if they secure this win against the USA they will qualify for the 7th place play-off on the 4th of July. It will play a major role in the pursuit of claiming the 7th spot. They showed their value in both departments in the previous game. Paul Stirling smashed 162 runs in the first innings to lead his team to 349 runs. It should be an easy win for them considering USA’s performance in the tournament. They need to win this match to go further. 

Paul Stirling, Andy Balbirnie, Joshua Little, and Mark Adair are the key players to watch out for in the Ireland side. If someone gets big, they can come closer to the 7th spot.

Meanwhile, the USA has to turn things around if they want to be at the 7th spot of the table. Their campaign has been worse as they didn’t win a single game in the league stage. They lost to the West Indies, Nepal, Netherlands and Zimbabwe. With no points in their pocket, they have to win this game and expect some favours from their best players. 

The USA last played Zimbabwe and lost by 304 runs. Zimbabwe hammered them by taking ten wickets in 24.1 overs. This defeat would also hurt their ego. The USA can spoil the party for Ireland by defeating them on the 30th. Defeating Ireland after not winning a single match isn’t an easy thing. They showed rare positives but failed to show any marks against big teams. 

The USA have some quality players such as Monank Patel, Aaron Jones, Abhishek Paradkar, and Jessy Singh who can contribute very well to surprise Ireland.  

Keeping the current squad and ongoing momentum in mind, we are favouring Ireland to continue its winning streak.
