IRE vs SCO Fantasy Prediction: Ireland vs Scotland on Wednesday, Check Fantasy team, Playing XIs, Injury Updates & Pitch Report for ICC World Cup Qualifier, match 7 live

Match 7 of the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifiers 2023 will be played between Ireland and Scotland at the Queens Sports Club.

Ireland’s tournament began on a disappointing note as they lost by five wickets against Oman in their opening match. Despite a challenging start with the bat, Harry Tector (52) and George Dockrell (91) showcased remarkable performances to stabilize the ship, scoring impressive half-centuries. Their partnership played a crucial role in Ireland’s recovery from an early top-order collapse, enabling them to set a competitive total of 281/7 in 20 overs. However, the Irish bowlers were unable to defend the target as every Oman batter made valuable contributions to secure victory with 11 balls remaining.

Scotland, meanwhile, will be eager to kick off their campaign with a victory in their first match. They will be reliant on the seasoned duo of Matthew Cross and George Munsey to lead the batting lineup, while largely falling on Mark Watt in the bowling department. It can be noted that Scotland lost both their warm-up matches, against Zimbabwe and West Indies respectively. Their batting was disappointing in both the games – they set a target of only 164 in the first game, and were unable to chase down 164 in the next game.
