What are the hot tips and best bets as the tournament gets into full swing in the UAE?
<div><h2>Ireland vs Oman</h2><p><a href="" target="_blank" title="Game Odds"><strong>Monday, 21 October 2019</strong></a></p><p>The shocks keep coming for the Europe-based teams in the ICC T20 World Cup qualifiers in the United Arab Emirates. Ireland, favourites for the tournament, were downed by the hosts on Sunday, joining Scotland in licking their wounds af-ter they suffered a shock loss.</p><p>It was a timid display from the Irish. They looked set for a competitive score with Paul Stirling in solid form. He had given them a platform and Andy Balbirnie was beginning to tick along at 49 for one. But the latter’s wicket sparked a collapse and Ireland could muster only 125. Stirling top scored with a strong 72.</p><p>The UAE got home with three overs to spare. The star of the show was Rohan Mustafa. The 31-year-old off-break bowler doesn’t fit the profile of a wrecking-ball style bowler but his brand of spin was too much for Ireland. He claimed four wickets. And who got the UAE off to a flier with the bat? Roshan.</p><p>Emboldened, he took 39 from 16 balls, including eight fours. The result was never in doubt.</p><p><a href=";a=9feaaf7a-d7a2-4185-974a-81ad171951df&amp;f=3"><img alt src="" style="width:100%;height:12px" /></a></p><p>Oman will provide a stern test, then, particularly if they get their spinners into the game. For Oman top bowler markets, Zeeshan Maqsood has a 33 per cent win rate but the study sample is a little short and he only bowled one over against the Netherlands. You’re likely to get big numbers available but it’s not great that the slow-left armer was not trusted with more.</p><p>For Ireland top bowler, Mark Adair might be the best bet. He has won a whop-ping 62.5 per cent of the time in eight and that’s a hefty edge for us in what should be a competitive market. Adair could be around the 4.5 (7/2) mark.</p><p>Stirling is likely to prove popular once again for top bat. It would seem he has lit-tle to beat. What’s his hit rate like? That top bat effort against the UAE was his eighth win in 20 so a 40 per cent win rate has great appeal. That’s a 2.5 (6/4) chance and he won’t go off anywhere near as short.</p><p style="text-align:center"><br /><a href="" target="_blank" title="More Cricket Tips"><strong>Check all Cricket Tips</strong></a></p></div>
