The fourth T20I match between Ireland women and the Netherlands women starts on July 30 at The Village in Dublin. Ireland has won the series with one game left. They’ve been fantastic thus far, but the Dutch ladies have failed to rediscover their form.
The Netherlands scored 109 in the third T20I despite losing five wickets. Miranda Veringmeier was their best performance, scoring 60 points on 50 balls. As a result of the team’s inability to achieve a healthy total, none of the other hitters contributed.
The sum proved insufficient as Ireland’s ladies easily chased down the objective. Gaby Lewis spearheaded Ireland’s pursuit. Opening the batting, she hammered a fast half-century to assist her team cross the finish line in the 12th over.
She finished undefeated on 52 off 29 balls, including 11 fours in her innings. The Irish team defeated the Dutch team by six wickets to win the series with one game remaining.
The hosts will be aiming to win the series 3-0 with the fourth T20I slated for July 30. The Netherlands, on the other hand, will seek a consolation victory.

Ireland Women vs Netherlands Women Team Previews
Team Ireland Women
Continuing to build on their first-match victory, Ireland Women put themselves on the visitors in both sections of the game. With this huge win, they now have a 2-0 lead in the four-match series and will be aiming for a three-nil victory.
Ireland Women do not have just a tremendously gifted side on paper, but they have also implemented their plans superbly. So far, Lara Martiz, Laura Delany, and Shauna Kavanagh have all performed admirably. Furthermore, their bowlers have done a good job of keeping the Netherlands Women quiet. The same was true in the previous match when they limited the Netherlands Women to 109 points, which they easily chased down in the end.
Overall, Ireland Women have nearly everything going for them, and defeating them will be difficult.

Team Netherlands Women
The Netherlands Women would be unhappy after suffering a humiliating defeat in the previous encounter. What was even more disheartening was that they lost the game without even putting up a fight. They’re already down 2-0 in the series and have one more chance to recover some pride. They have a strong team, but they will have to play outside of their comfort zone.
The Netherlands Women have failed to play consistently in all three areas of the game in the two completed matches so far in the series. Aside from batting and bowling, we haven’t seen them perform as well as they would have liked on the field. They have a relatively inexperienced side, which has been a significant role in their poor results.
Overall, the Netherlands Women are a good team that will need to raise its game significantly. If this occurs, Ireland Women will have their job cut out for them.
