England VS Ireland match analysis

The difference in the quality of the two sides is obvious, but the match odds are set accordingly, so the only reasonable bet is this if you want to back England as a side. England are opening with Pietersen and Strauss. Strauss is in good form and almost beat India single-handedly, which is incredible. Pietersen is bound to have huge innings at some point and he scores for fun against these poor sides unless he seriously misfires. However, the English team has a lot of depth and any batsman can score heavily against the Irish bowling attack, which is simply a lot below average. The Irish side has shown nothing so far and with England being in such a good form, they will surely just try to survive as many overs as possible. And they obviously have to start with that from the start. So, I can definitely see the English team heavily outscoring the Irish guys in the first fifteen overs and even though the handicap might be a little too big, it is well within the reach of the English big hitters, which have not failed to provide us with some spectacular shots in the previous matches.
