Gaby Lewis is a good captaincy option for this rubber.
Ireland Women and the Netherlands Women will face off in the first T20I of a four-match T20I series, starting from 26th July 2021. The venue for this match will be The Village in Dublin.
The first T20I will begin at 08:30 PM IST.
The Ireland Women will face the Netherlands Women in a four-match rubber in the T20I format. The Irish side will enter the series with a lot of confidence after they hammered the Scotland Women by a margin of 3-1 in their previous T20I series.
On the other hand, this would be the first international assignment in almost two years for the Netherlands Women, as they last took the cricket field way back in September 2019. They will surely look to pose a good challenge to the opposition.

Captaincy Picks for IRE vs NED
Gaby Lewis is a batter to watch out for. She scored 116 runs in the 4 matches that she wielded the willow against Scotland, and is in good form. If Lewis gets her eye in, then Netherlands will have some headaches for sure.
Heather Siegers is a player who can contribute with both bat and ball. While she has scored 210 runs at a strike rate of 108.24, she has prized out 18 willow wielders with the ball as well in T20Is.
