Netherlands would be looking to complete a hat-trick of wins when they meet Ireland in the Quadrangular T20I fixture at Al Amarat on Sunday. The Oranges boast a dominant record against the counterparts for the game, with no losses in the last five meeting between the two sides in Twenty 20 Internationals. Moreover, they have form by their side to carry on the juggernaut.
Ireland, on the other hand, have a win and loss apiece so far in the tournament. The bowling had let them down in the last outing against Scotland and if they can fix it, they can pose a challenge for the table toppers. The Irish are sitting third on the points tally and must put a strong performance here to bolster their chances of making the final.
