<div><h2 style="text-align:center"><strong>Semi-finals</strong></h2><p style="text-align:center"><a href="" target="_blank" title="ICC World T20 Qualifiers Odds Board"><strong>Friday 1 November 2019</strong></a></p><p>Finally, we are closer to finding out the winner of the ICC T20 Qualifying Tournament. Not the teams who will partake in another qualifying round next year in Australia you understand, but an actual winner of the tournament.</p><p>After various confusing play-offs to find out which teams will make up the numbers in what is likely to a procession for the likes of Bangladesh and West Indies in that event, the four teams fighting it out for a final spot at least can claim to be the cream of the crop. Netherlands versus Ireland is a potential thriller while Papua New Guinea and Namibia have been surprise packages. Well, of sorts. These pages highlighted Namibia as one of the most underrated teams in the early round.</p><p>For Ireland’s clash against the men in Orange, we fancy a top bat wager on Paul Stirling at around the 11/4 mark. Stirling has had a decent tournament and is comfortably his team’s top tournament runscorer with 247. Next best is Gareth Delany who has come in lower down and had a swipe, hence a high strike rate. But with Stirling able to use the powerplay overs and boasting the opportunity to bat the longest, the 3.75 (11/4) that <a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Top Rated Bookmaker">Bet365</a> offer holds appeal.</p><p>We are also keen on keeping faith with Paul van Meekeren who should be jolly instead of a 4.33 (10/3) chance with <a href=";a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Well rated bookmaker">Betfair</a> and <a href=";a=df66db4b-b019-4343-9fc7-6c4f20e2a356&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Get in the game with Paddy Power">Paddy Power</a>. Van Meekeren is an out-and-out wicket-taker and has enjoyed an excellent strike rate in the competition. Remember with Bet365 top bowler tied bets in this market are separated by economy rates.</p><p>The Namibia top bowler market is of great interest and this could be a two-horse race. Robbie Frylinck and Bernard Scholz are dominating with strike rates of 10.0 and 11.5 respectively in the tournament. <a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Top Rated Bookmaker">Bet365</a> can’t split the pair at 3.75 so it could be worth splitting stakes on the duo.</p><p>Tony Ura has been the go-to man for top Papua New Guinea runscorer for some time and cometh the hour, cometh the man. He is due a winner for punters and <a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Top Rated Bookmaker">Bet365</a> go 3.4 (12/5).</p><p style="text-align:center"><a href=";a=9feaaf7a-d7a2-4185-974a-81ad171951df&amp;f=3"><img alt src="" style="width:100%" /></a></p></div>
