The Netherlands leads the three-match series 1-0 after winning the first game by one run, and a win in the second game will seal the deal. On the other hand, the home team cannot afford to relax after narrowly avoiding a cliffhanger. In the first game, they only scored 195 runs when batting first. As a result, they’d prefer to put up a considerably stronger batting effort.
On the other side, Ireland must have been devastated after failing to chase down 196 to win. While their bowlers performed admirably in the game, the batsmen fell short. Except for Paul Stirling and Simi Singh, no Irish player has ever scored more than 20 runs. They did, however, put up an intense fight overall and would be determined to recover.
The temperature is forecast to be around 26 degrees Celsius, with a reasonable probability of showers later in the afternoon.
The pitch is slightly slower than in the previous game, with plenty of assist for the bowlers. While the pacers should get the ball to swing early on, the batsmen must play their shots. With spinners expected to play a critical part in the middle overs, having wickets in hand will be vital. After winning the toss, both teams will ideally seek to bat first, with 220 being the minimum score at the site.
