ENG vs IRE Venue and Pitch Report
This will be the second game of the tournament at the MCG. There was plenty of help for the pacers in the first game.

There was almost no help for the spinners off the deck but the big dimensions of the MCG will keep them in play. The average first innings score here is 147 runs. Teams are expected to chase after winning the toss but batting first won’t be a bad option either. Chasing sides have won 10 out of 15 T20Is played at this venue.

Top Captaincy Choices for ENG vs IRE Dream11 Match
Jos Buttler: Jos Buttler is the best captaincy choice for this game. He is one of the best batters in the shortest format and is in exceptional form as well. Buttler scored 18 runs in the first game and he’ll look to score big in this match. He can fetch plenty of points with his batting and wicket-keeping.
Sam Curran: Sam Curran is in the form of his life. He is picking wickets for fun. He will bowl in the middle and death overs. Curran picked up 5 wickets in the first game against Afghanistan. He is competent with the bat as well and will be an excellent captaincy choice because of his all-round attributes.
Paul Stirling: Paul Stirling has looked in the last two games and he needs to perform if Ireland is to defeat England. He is a very aggressive opener who looks to attack from the first ball. He can take the game away from the opposition in just a few overs. The Irish opener scored 34 runs in the last match. Stirling will be a good captaincy pick.
Differential Picks for ENG vs IRE Dream11 Match
Adil Rashid: Adil Rashid will be an excellent differential pick for this game. He is the lead spinner for England and has been a consistent performer for them over the years.
