IRE vs NZ 2nd T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips
The first IT20 of this series saw New Zealand beat Ireland by 31 runs at an extremely hot and humid Stormont on Monday. The games continue to come thick and fast and the second IT20 takes place at the same venue on Wednesday afternoon. Read on as we preview this second game of the three match series. The match begins at 16:00 local time.
Ireland were very much in the box seat when they had New Zealand at 38-3 and 54-4 on Monday. However, as has been the case throughout these games, Ireland did not have enough quality to sustain a full match performance.
New Zealand continue to give Ireland a sniff in these games but, as with the ODI series, they found a match winner in the opening IT20 when it really mattered.

IRE vs NZ Pitch Report
Pace bowlers were the most successful on this wicket in the first IT20. It is a good batting surface though and whoever bats first will want to post a total of at least 190.
Although conditions will be cooler than in the opening game of the series, this game will be very humid throughout.

Ireland Team News & Playing 11
IRE Team News
The hosts were very impressive with the ball in the opening game of the series and if it had not been for Glenn Phillips strong innings, they may well have been going into this game 1-0 up. We expect to see Ireland put out an unchanged XI for this game.
IRE Key Players
- Paul Stirling – The opener did not make a huge score in the opening game of the series but showed plenty of intent as he tried to hit most balls for six. He scored a century in the recent ODI series.
- Curtis Campher – The 23 year old all-rounder produced an encouraging display in the first game. He dismissed the dangerous Daryl Mitchell and then top scored with 29 runs from 21 balls.
- Josh Little – The bowler continues to boost his international reputation. He dismissed Finn Allen, Dane Cleaver, Michael Bracewell and Mitchell Santner in the first IT20.
IRE Team Form
Ireland have now lost four successive games in this format. They have been beaten by New Zealand, India and UAE in this run.
Ireland Predicted Playing 11
Paul Stirling, Andy Balbirnie (c), Gareth Delany, Harry Tector, Curtis Campher, Lorcan Tucker (wk), George Dockrell, Mark Adair, Craig Young, Josh Little, Barry McCarthy
New Zealand Team News & Playing 11
NZ Team News
The Black Caps gave IT20 debuts to wicket-keeper Dane Cleaver and all-rounder Michael Bracewell in the opening game of the series. Lockie Ferguson tends to be rested quite often and with the T20 World Cup under three months away, we expect him to not play in this fixture.
NZ Key Players
- Martin Guptill – We saw a strike rate up at 200 for the 12 balls the experienced right handed opener spent at the crease on Monday. He hit five fours in his innings.
- Glenn Phillips – The powerful middle-order batter hit seven fours and one six as he top scored with 69 not out from 52 balls in the opening IT20.
- Jimmy Neesham – The all-rounder is always a threat to the opposition and impressed with a typically attacking display with the bat on Monday. He then dismissed Mark Adair and Barry McCarthy.
NZ Team Form
On Monday, the Black Caps got their first victory in IT20 cricket since beating England in the semi-final of the T20 World Cup back in November 2021. The win ended a run of four successive IT20 defeats.
New Zealand Predicted Playing 11
Finn Allen, Martin Guptill, Dane Cleaver (wk), Daryl Mitchell, Glenn Phillips, Michael Bracewell, Jimmy Neesham, Mitchell Santner (c), Ish Sodhi, Blair Tickner, Jacob Duffy

Ireland vs New Zealand Prediction
Ireland certainly have a very talented group of players, however, they never seem to be able to put a performance together where four or five of their top players are at their best. Again, we expect them to be competitive in this fixture but we are backing New Zealand to get the win.
New Zealand are favourites to beat Ireland at odds of 1.28
