ENG vs IRE Dream11 Prediction | 1st ODI | Ireland tour of England 2020

England and Ireland will clash against each other in the 1st ODI of Ireland tour of England, 2020, at The Rose Bowl in Southampton. We will provide ENG vs IRE Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.

After a great start to Test cricket, now it’s time for the limited over format. The last International One Day match that was played was between Australia and New Zealand back in March. After a long gap of 4 months, everyone would be excited to watch the white-ball cricket.


England has won the test series against West Indies and would be high on confidence. Though the players are quite different in both the formats, there would still be that winning momentum that they would want to continue in the ODI format. Adding to that, this series will be part of the World Cup Superleague.

England’s last series was against South Africa in South Africa, where they tied the series with one win each. It will be the first home ODI series that they will be playing after the World Cup.

Skipper Eoin Morgan will play a crucial part in the middle order with the destructive batsmen like Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, and James Vince. Sam Billings will be the wicket-keeper batsmen, Tom Banton, and Mooen Ali will be the team’s finishers. Saqib Mahmood, David Willey, and Tom Curran are expected to be the team’s pace attack while Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali will be the spin duo for the team.


Ireland played their last ODI series against West Indies in January and lost all the 3 matches of the series, but they improved performance. They would want to impact this series as it will be considered for the World Cup Super league.

Andrew Balbirnie will lead the side and generally bats at No.3 for the team. Paul Stirling and Gareth Delany will open the innings with one of their experienced players William Porterfield at No.4. Kevin O’Brien, one of the experienced All-rounder in the team, will be crucial down the order and with the ball. Both Boyd Rankin and Barry McCarthy will be essential in the bowling attack.
