After a bright opener against England, the Netherlands have faded away and are in danger of departing winless. At 2/1 (Totesport), they’re not fancied against the Irish either and William Porterfield’s men can pick up another win (4/9, 888sport) to go home with 4 points.
After having a really good go at West Indies and India, Ireland came back down to earth a bit against South Africa but they should see off the Netherlands easily. Porterfield has been pretty solid, he is 4/1 (bet365) to top score, while Kevin O’Brien is 7/1 with Stan James. O’Brien may be quite far down the order but wickets should fall steadily and he will get a chance to blast around the Dutch bowlers.
The Dutch will have to rely on Seelaar to grab some wickets, he is 3/1 (William Hill) to get the most for Netherlands.
Later in the morning, Sri Lanka are 8/15 (Sportingbet) to beat New Zealand in a match purely for places as Group A is already decided.
New Zealand, 7/4 at Ladbrokes, are probably underestimated in what should be a close game. Taylor and co have been blasting the runs of late and the Kiwis problem could lie in conceding too many runs.
Back New Zealand to cause an upset in a high scoring encounter.
