UAE vs IRE Dream11 Team Prediction | Ireland Tour Of United Arab Emirates | 3rd ODI | 12th Jan 2021
After a jaw-dropping performance in the first match, UAE had an unexpected experience as two of their players had tested positive for the coronavirus. This led to the postponement of the 2nd ODI. Now that the remaining cricketers have tested negative, both the teams will lock horns once again in the 3rd ODI of the series.
This is a must-win game for the visitors as they went down against the hosts in the first match where the latter chased down 269 with ease, thanks to tons from Rizwan and Usman.
On the other hand, Ireland will be looking to bounce back after a forgettable match. Though the team batted well to score 269, they were let down by the bowlers who couldn’t get rid of UAE’s middle-order. Let’s go through our Dream11 Team Prediction for the upcoming affair between UAE and Ireland.

Venue: Zayed Cricket Stadium
While batting here is a bit difficult than other grounds at UAE, we did see a commendable batting performance from both the teams in the first ODI. We can expect a similar kind of day here as well, and the bowlers will have a hard time surviving not only the batsmen but also the scorching sun.

UAE vs IRE Dream11 Team News:
They played their first match since 2019 and provided a brilliant performance where they went on to win the first ODI of the series. Despite a ton from Stirling, their bowlers came back stronger to produce dots at the right time which added more pressure on Ireland, thereby, they ended up losing wickets. UAE will be hoping for a similar kind of performance here as well but the team will be without two of their main players, Suri and Lakra who had tested positive for coronavirus.
Ireland will be rethinking their decision to miss out on a few key players for the series as the team went down poorly against UAE in their first outing. The team was supposed to win big here but unfortunately, they had no answers to the brilliance from the home team. The bowlers are looking more like a weak link here for the team, something they might look to improve in this contest.

UAE vs IRE Dream 11 Team Prediction: Who will win the match
This is a must-win match for Ireland and the team will be hoping for a better outing here. They will be looking to make a few changes to the line-up and might try to add some weightage to the bowling department that looked feeble in the last match. They will begin this contest as the favorites against the hosts. UAE, on the other hand, certainly will be looking to continue the similar form and the middle-order now will have more responsibility in the absence of Suri.
