Ireland v Scotland 3rd T20I betting tips & predictions – Will the rain relent?

Ireland will hope the rain can relent and they can level the series off against Scotland. The Ireland v Scotland 3rd T20I betting tips for this game can be seen below.

Story so far:

The first game of the series was won by Scotland despite Ireland going into it as frontrunner to go 1-0 up. Ireland were allowed to score only 146 batting first before Scotland got to that target with some ease.

Wicket-keeper Matthew Cross smashed a 34-ball 60, pushing Scotland through to a win in just 16.1 overs with six wickets in hand.

Scotland did have some trouble later in their chase, but the win was achieved by the pair of Richie Berrington and Craig Wallace. They were involved in a fifth wicket partnership of half-century.

Ireland’s batting was a huge issue. The track was not a minefield but David Rankin and Kevin O’Brien aside, not too many batsmen got going.

They will continue to feel the absence of William Porterfield and Niall O’Brien, who are both involved in county cricket but Ireland will need to do much better than this. If they bat first, the top-order need to get them off to a steady start before captain Kevin O’Brien can tee off to get going.

Scotland’s Michael Leask finished with a couple of wickets in their last game and they will be continuing to rely on him to get going.
