IRE-W vs AUS-W 2nd T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips
Ireland Women will take on Australia Women in Match 2 of the WT20I Summer Tri-Series. The game will be played at the Bready Cricket Club, Magheramason starting at 16:00 local time on Sunday 17 July.
Ireland Women will have watched with interest as Australia Women and Pakistan Women went head to head in Match 1 of the tournament on Saturday. Although there were only 8 overs bowled, the hosts will have seen enough to know that this Australia Women side will cause them problems on this surface. Ireland Women lost their last two WT20Is, to South Africa Women at home in early June, but did win the first game of that series by 10 runs. All three of the games against South Africa Women were played without Ireland’s captain, Laura Delany, and she will return to lead the side in this match.
Australia Women will have been gutted to see the rain interrupt Match 1 against Pakistan Women as they were in such a dominant position. Although they had conceded 28 extras when the rain came, Pakistan Women had been reduced to 56-6 from 8 overs. Alana King got the plaudits with 3-8 from her only over but praise should also be given to Megan Schutt’s 1-6 from 2 overs and off-spinner, Ashleigh Gardner, taking 2-11 from 2 overs. There will have been frustration for Australia Women but we also expect it to have been mixed in with a realisation that Pakistan Women will not call them issues during the tournament.

IRE Women vs AUS Women Prediction
With the weather forecast far stronger than what we saw for Saturday's game, we expect to see no interruptions of play. Ireland will be determined to put on a show for their home fans in Belfast but we predict that Australia will be way too strong and will get the win.
