India U19 vs Ireland U19 Team Previews
After defeating South Africa, India’s U19 team will be brimming with confidence. That was supposed to be the toughest match for it in this group, and the other matches are not expected to be difficult.
The standout performers for India in the previous match were Yash Dhull, who led a comeback with the bat and top-scored with 82, Vicky Ostwal, who picked up five wickets and got India back into the game, and Nishant Sindhu, who bowled a brilliant ten-over spell to put pressure on the South African batsmen.
India should be able to crush Ireland regardless of what happens first. The batting is very strong, and we anticipate that Harnoor Singh will score a lot of runs. He may be a viable option in the Top Batsman India betting market. Yash Dhull is another great contender who is in form, but stick with the openers for this match.
Among the bowlers, Rajvardhan Hangargekar will be difficult to face. He is one of the tournament’s fastest bowlers and could cause problems for Ireland’s batsmen.
India U19 Squad
Angkrish Raghuvanshi, Harnoor Singh, Shaik Rasheed, Yash Dhull (c), Nishant Sindhu, Raj Bawa, Kaushal Tambe, Dinesh Bana (wk), Vicky Ostwal, Rajvardhan Hangargekar, Ravi Kumar, Manav Parakh, Siddarth Yadav, Aneeshwar Gautam, Aaradhya Yadav, Vasu Vats, Garv Sangwan
Predicted XI: Angkrish Raghuvanshi, Harnoor Singh, Shaik Rasheed, Yash Dhull (c), Nishant Sindhu, Raj Bawa, Kaushal Tambe, Dinesh Bana (wk), Vicky Ostwal, Rajvardhan Hangargrekar, Ravi Kumar
Ireland may have won its first match against Uganda, but it will face a completely different level of difficulty when it faces India. Ireland’s wicketkeeper, Joshua Cox, led the batting with 111 not out, but the fact that no one else reached fifty is concerning.
We simply do not see this batting lineup standing up to a far superior bowling attack than most of them have ever faced. Also, the pitches are a little slow, so a trial by spin is possible. That is never easy for European players, especially those who have never played on such a surface before.
Ireland’s bowling attack is mediocre at best. It allowed Uganda to reach 197 points, which is not a bad total at the U19 level. Matthew Humphreys took four wickets and appears to be the attack’s leader, but he will struggle to replicate his success against India.
In this match, you should stay away from the Ireland betting markets.
Ireland U19 Squad
Liam Doherty, David Vincent, Jack Dickson, Joshua Cox (wk), Tim Tector (c), Philippus le Roux, Scott MacBeth, Nathan McGuire, Matthew Humphreys, Jamie Forbes, Muzamil Sherzad, Diarmuid Burke, Daniel Forkin, Luke Whelan, Reuben Wilson
Predicted XI: Liam Doherty, David Vincent, Jack Dickson, Joshua Cox (wk), Tim Tector (c), Philippus le Roux, Scott MacBeth, Nathan McGuire, Matthew Humphreys, Jamie Forbes, Muzamil Sherzad

Pitch and Weather Conditions
The Brian Lara Cricket Stadium has a good sporting surface. Both batsmen and bowlers will find something to enjoy. With the new ball, the pacers are expected to produce some movement.
While there will be some turn, the batsmen will be able to consolidate and accelerate in the middle overs. On this surface, the team that wins the toss will try to bowl first.
At the venue, both teams are expected to be greeted by partly cloudy skies. Temperatures will likely range between 22 and 30 degrees Celsius. There will be no rain throughout the day’s play.
India U19 vs Ireland U19 Match Prediction
The Indian U19 team has made only minor changes to their starting lineup in the Asia Cup and is expected to use the same winning combination in this match. The top order batsmen have been quite consistent, while the bowlers have taken wickets in crucial situations. Ireland’s U19 team is also in good form in this format and is expected to play with the same lineup. The team’s bowling performances have been strong in the bilateral series leading up to the tournament, and they will look to maintain that form. While the batsmen must establish their presence in the crease.
India U19 enters this match with high confidence, having won both of their warm-up games and their tournament opener. Ireland U19 has also won their tournament opener and cannot be written off in this match. The Irish have a reputation for slaying giants.
India U19 is the favourite to beat Ireland U19 at the odds of 1.01.
- In every aspect of the game, India is the superior team.
- Ireland defeated Uganda in its previous match and displayed some good skills.
- India is one of the strongest teams in this tournament, and we believe it will easily defeat Ireland in this match.
