Australia Women’s tour of Ireland hasn’t exactly started yet, as the first ODI was cancelled due to rain. Therefore, we’re still waiting to see how the teams look in their first match. This puts more pressure on the second game, as there’s a chance for Ireland to at least draw the series.
Since 2005, there hasn’t been a single ODI series between these two nations! Australia won the most recent match by an incredible 240 runs. The biggest change to the Aussie squad is that allrounder Heather Graham is out due to injury, but is to be replaced by Tess Flintoff.
Ireland Women vs. Australia Women will take place at Castle Avenue, Dublin, on July 25th. Be sure to check all the recent betting odds for all the biggest cricket matches happening now.
IREW VS AUSW TEAM PREVIEWS
Ireland will undoubtedly have an uphill task in this scenario, but if there is any optimism, it will come thanks to batter Gaby Lewis. She has been in great shape recently, especially during the West Indies ODI series, where she led the team in scoring with 188 runs.
There is potential if Lewis and Delaney (who has 276 runs in her previous 9 matches) can make a solid battle despite Lewis’ current ODI batting average, which is a tad low at 31.40 when compared to what the Aussies achieve.
The Irish bowlers had little success against the Windies, as Murray was the leading bowler with 3/86, which is far from impressive. Kelly and Murray are the best options for bowling, but Murray’s average of 37.60 is a little higher than you’d prefer. To defeat Oz’s Perry and Mooney, they will need to bowl some of the best deliveries they’ve ever dreamed of!
Australia didn’t play their best cricket versus England, despite winning the Women’s Ashes. They weren’t as cohesive as we’ve seen them before, losing two out of three ODI matches in the series.
Perry (ODI average: 50.29) and Mooney (ODI average: 53.10) are expected to be the team’s top batters like always because of their outstanding performances in the Ashes, in which Perry scored 185 total runs and Mooney collected 130. Healy, who is typically a great batter, had a concerning series after scoring only 28 runs.
It’s fortunate that Gardner is in the Australian team, since she is bowling some of the finest innings in women’s world cricket right now. She has taken 19 wickets in her previous 10 games, and her incredible ER is 4.14. She took 9/135 in the Ashes series by herself and contributed significantly to the games.
The next great bowler is a little ways away, but King or Jonassen should be sufficient given that Jonassen has taken 16 wickets in her last 10 games.
IREW VS AUSW TOSS PREDICTION
Captains will almost definitely choose to bowl first if they win the toss. It seems to be the superior choice because 14 of the 24 ODI games played here have resulted in victories when batting second.
PITCH AND CONDITIONS
The Castle Avenue surface is typically thought of as perfect for bowlers, since it frequently offers little bounce but does have plenty of movement for spinners. Because of the slow outfield, batters could have a hard time finding many boundaries.
IRE VS AUS WOMEN MATCH BETTING TIPS
Given that Australia is the overwhelming favourite, it is evident from 10Cric’s odds that Ireland has little chance of winning. The odds of Australia winning, though, are hardly worthwhile because you would essentially only get back your original wager. There isn’t much of a return at all! Ireland is a risky bet, but it still offers the best opportunity to make some money.
Lewis has to hit 150 or more while receiving support from Delaney for Ireland to have a chance of winning. Additionally, Irish bowlers like Murray will need to significantly reduce the number of runs that strong hitters like Mooney, Healy, and Perry can score. Australia wasn’t playing amazing versus England, so Ireland will need to jump on this chance while they can.
