ENG vs IRE Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing 11, and Fantasy Cricket Tips of ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022: 20th Match

England vs Ireland will play in the 20th match of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 at Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne 


England started their campaign with a win against Afghanistan at Perth by 5 wickets. Their bowlers were clinical and bowled out the Afghan team for just 112.

Mark Wood and Ben Stokes bowled very well at the top and picked up 2 wickets. In the end, Sam Curran was at his best and picked up 5 wickets. He also registered his career-best figures by ending his 3.4-over spell for 5/10.

With the bat, their top order struggled to get going but made handy contributions. Liam Livingstone and Alex Hales were the top scorers and scored 29 and 19 runs respectively.


Ireland played some brilliant cricket in the round 1 of the tournament and made it to the Super 12s but had to face defeat against Sri Lanka in their first match of the Super 12s.

Batting first, their batters looked good in the middle overs but failed to finish the innings and well and posted a below-par total of just 128 runs. Harry Tector and Paul Stirling batted very well and scored 45 and 34 runs respectively.

With the ball, all their bowlers were expensive and failed to pick up wickets regularly. Gareth Delany was the only wicket-taking bowler and picked up 1 wicket and gave away 28 runs in his 4 overs. It is do-or-die for the Irish.

ENG vs IRE Pitch Report 2022

Average 1st Innings score: 140

Average 2nd innings score: 129

(The average score based on the overall T20I matches played on the ground so far)

The pitch is a good batting track with even pace and bounce but the long square boundaries on both sides make batting a little difficult. Spinners can be differential picks on this surface.
