England are clear favorites to win the match but Ireland is always a dangerous side in the limited overs format. A lot of runs are expected to be scored at the batting friendly Rose Bowl.
Value Bets for India Bet
Roy has been England's backbone and it was evident the way he blazed the opponents away often in the world cup. Expect him to be a bit rusty, but once he gets going, it's difficult to stop him.
William Porterfield has been in good nick and Ireland would want him to get runs in their first series post the pandemic.
Rashid would want to prove a point to the selectors by taking wickets and making himself available for the test side and with Ireland, he will be backing himself.
SAFE BOOKMAKER BETS
England Fall of 1st Wicket - Over 45.5
Bairstow and Roy being explosive openers, a century or even a double century stand is guaranteed and with Ireland being such a timid bowling attack, a blazing start is expected.
Paul Stirling Total Runs - Over 22.5
Stirling was in terrific form in their last T20 series against Afghanistan and will be keen to repeat that form and score some runs in the series.
Johnny Bairstow Total Runs - Over 45.5
Along with Roy, Bairstow will be itching to get some runs ahead of an important T20 series coming up against Pakistan.
