Nepal have a little too fragile batting lineup, which is a little too over-reliant on Binod Bhandari
Ireland are a better team between the two, both on paper and experience wise
Kevin O' Brien and Mark Adair have been in fantastic form for the Ireland
With so many international matches going around in a cricketing circuit, this series hasn't garnered much attention. However, there have already been a few closely-contested matches in the tournament so far, which could be the signs for things to come. Nepal's win over Netherlands and Ireland's loss to Oman came as a surprise to many. The upcoming match between Ireland and Nepal promises to be full of surprises. Having said that, we think that the result would be in favor of the team rich in experience and depth in their batting order, that is Ireland. Despite the odds of just 1.33, we think betting on Ireland could prove to be a fruitful decision.

Once again, temperatures will ramp up into the 30s from very early in the day in Muscat. As ever, the weather will be typical of Oman – hot, sunny, dry and with zero chance of rain during the match.
IRE vs NEP Pitch Condition
Kevin O’Brien’s onslaught last time out proved there are runs to be had in Muscat, even if an otherwise balanced pitch has seen bowlers take wickets too.
