WINDIES vs IRE Prediction

Manish Khorgade

It’s a do or die game for Ireland as another defeat at the hands of West Indies here would seal the series in favour of the hosts.

 

  • Head to head, in the last 5 ODIs played between the two sides in which we got results, West Indies won 4, while Ireland won just 1 match.
  • It could be West Indies second series win in two months if they manage to win the second game, after their series-win against Afghanistan.
  • Alzarri Joseph (10 overs 4 for 32) and Evin Lewis (run-a-ball 99) were the key contributors from West Indies side in the first ODI.

Our prediction is that West Indies will defeat Ireland and seal the series.

Match Preview

After their white-wash over Zimbabwe in 3-match ODI series, Ireland are on the verge of losing the series to West Indies. After losing on the practice match, they lost the first ODI against the West Indies too. Their top and middle-order batsmen failed miserably to score runs and put a decent target on the board for the hosts in the first ODI. With hosts leading three-ODI series 1-0 lead, they are just one game away of sealing the series. Their batting must improve to face West Indies’ talented bowling unit. Ireland rely more on Balbirnie and Stirling while for West Indies, Shai Hope, Evin Lewis, Nicholas Pooran have been exceptional.

Ireland

A lot was expected from the skipper Andrew Balbirnie, and he smashed two fours and a six as he scored 16 runs off 13 balls, before falling to Roston Chase after taking Ireland post 50 in 9.1 overs. Wicketkeeper Tucker tried to get the things back on the track with his patient innings of 68-balls 31 runs, supported and added 54 runs along with Adair (29 off 34) to take the team to a modest total of 180. While defending, Simi Singh grabbed 2 for 44, while McBrine, McCarthy and Rankin each took 1 wicket, but it was never an easy task for any bowling attack on this surface. To win against West Indies, their batsmen need to apply themselves, and they have just one game to fix that, as series-defeat is just 1 game away for them now.
In last 9 ODIs, Paul Stirling (484 runs, average 53.77) has been the top-scorer, followed by Andy Balbirnie (339 runs), while Mark Adair is the leading wicket-taker for Ireland with 15 wickets in last 9 ODIs, followed by Boyd Rankin (13 in 8 matches).

Key Players - Andrew Balbirnie, Paul Stirling, Mark Adair
