IRE vs PAK Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips, Playing XI, Pitch Report & Injury Updates For 1st T20I

Here is everything your need to know about the first T20I to be played between IRE vs PAK on Friday.

Preview

Pakistan are set to play Ireland in a three match T20I series as a chance to get themselves ready for the T20I World Cup in June. Both these sides are also set to face each other during the mega event as they are in the same Group which also includes India.

Ireland (IRE) does not get to host many international games, and this series will be a huge boost for one of the most exciting sporting nations. The Ireland side will be looking to put their best foot forward and get their players ready for the challenges ahead.

Pakistan (PAK) are coming into the series after drawing the previous series 2-2 at home to an under-strength New Zealand side. The team that is touring Ireland consists of some of the best T20 players in the world, including their skipper Babar Azam.

Pitch Report

The pitch will be a delight for the pacers, with early help in store for them. The wicket should be ideal for winning the toss and bowling, as chasing will be easier at this venue, as the wicket has dried out in the second half of the game.

Captains

Babar Azam PAK | bat– 9

One of the top T20 batters in the world Babar Azam will want to get into groove for the T20 World Cup during the series against Ireland. The 29-year-old has been in decent form with the bat in recent times as seen during the series against the New Zealand side.

Paul Stirling IRE | bat- 7.5

The 33-year-old is one of the most notable batters from Ireland and his pedigree in the T20 format is right up there. Paul Stirling will look to lead by example and dent the confidence of Shaheen Afridi and Naseem early on.


Top

Mohammad Rizwan PAK | WK– 9

Pakistan wicket-keeper and batter Mohammad Rizwan has for long been one of the most consistent players for his side in the T20 format. The 32-year-old will look to gear up for the T20 world cup during the three match series against Ireland

Neil Rock IRE | WK- 8

The young Irish star has been dazzling everyone with his batting and also his leadership skills in recent times. Neil Rock is a clean hitter of the ball and also can keep wickets when needed.

Budget

Shaheen Afridi PAK | bowl- 9

Pakistani pacer Shaheen Afridi hasn’t had a great 2024 so far with the ball or off the field. The 23-year-old saw his captaincy being taken away and his form dip during the PSL 2024 season. His quality with the ball remains the same and he will be a very key member for the Pakistanis in the months to come

Harry Tector IRE | bat- 8.5

Young Harry Tector made news for batting when he played a few key knocks for his side against India a few years ago. The 24-year-old has all the class and talent in the world to take the attack to any bowling unit on his day.
