Can Ireland cross the finishing line this time and deny West Indies the ODI series whitewash?

 

  • Head to head, in the last 5 ODIs encounters, West Indies won all the five matches against Ireland, including first two matches of this ODI series.
  • Evin Lewis (WI) is the top-scorer with his 106 runs, only to be followed by Stirling (Ireland) who scored 78 in 2 matches.
  • Alzarri Joseph (WI) is the leading wicket-taker in the series with his 8 wickets. He grabbed 4 in each match and has been the player of the match in both the games.

We predict that West Indies will defeat Ireland aiming at the whitewash.

Match Preview

After winning 3-match ODI series against Zimbabwe, Ireland are at the receiving end as they lag 0-2 in this tournament, and with just one match to go, they already lost the series. It was Ireland’s third loss including the practice match in this tour. However, in the second ODI, they came quite close to winning the match and save the series, however, Cottrell’s six in the fifth ball of the last over just snatched the game with 1 ball and 1 wicket remaining. For Ireland, Stirling’s half-century and collective bowling efforts almost pushed the hosts to the wall. Though Ireland have lost the series, the expectation from the third ODI is already amplified.

Teams Preview

West Indies

In both their matches of the series, Alzarri Joseph scythed through the batting order of Ireland, taking 4-32 in each match – taking his wicket tally to 8 in the series already. With 2 wickets in the first ODI and 3 in the second, Cottrell has been effective as much. Lewis who scored 99 balls 99 runs in the first ODI, failed cheaply in the second. In response to Ireland’s 238, the top-four of West Indies batsmen just added 38 including Hope’s 25. Pooran and Pollard handled the show at the middle with their 50s and 40s respectively, while Walsh's 46 at the lower order helped the team to get close the target. With 5 needed in the last over and just 1 at hands, the match turned into a thriller. West Indies got just 3 from the first four balls before Cottrell smashed a sixer to Adair off the fifth ball and with that the ODI series was sealed. 
In last 10 ODIs, Shai Hope is the top-scorer with 518 runs at the average of 74.00, followed by Nicholas Pooram (430 runs). Sheldon Cottrell (15 wickets in last 8 games) and Alzarri Joseph (14 wickets in last 8 ODIs) are the key bowlers for West Indies.

Ireland

Ireland have surely improved their game after the first ODI as they almost nailed the second ODI, bringing down 9 West Indies batsmen while defending the total of 237 and taking the game till 49.5 overs. It was Stirling’s fabulous innings at the top which set the stage for Ireland, as he scored 63 off 79 which included 7 fours and a six. Porterfield (29 runs) and Stirling together added 59 for the third wicket, and 38 runs partnership for the seventh wicket between Adair (1 six for his 13 runs) and Simi Singh (34 runs) took Ireland to the decent total of 237. Simi Singh also grabbed 3 crucial wickets (Hope, Pooran and Shepherd) and he was well supported by McBrine (2 for 37) and McCarthy (2 for 28). Adair got just 5 runs to defend in the last over but West Indies’ last pair was batting, so the fate of the match could have swung either side, unfortunately for Ireland, in the end, it did not come their way despite putting up a great all-round show.
In last 9 ODIs, Paul Stirling (547 runs, average 60.77) has been the top-scorer, followed by Andy Balbirnie (320 runs), while Mark Adair is the leading wicket-taker for Ireland with 15 wickets in last 9 ODIs, followed by Boyd Rankin (14 in 9 matches).

Pitch And Weather Conditions

On the match day, the weather will be patchy rain possible with the daytime temperature reaching 27°c and nighttime minimum temperature are expected to be around 25°c. Precipitation of around 3.3 mm, cloud covering 74% of the sky, with the humidity around 77% is predicted.

 

Venue Details

The venue for the match is National Cricket Stadium, St George’s, Grenada.

 

Toss Prediction

The surface looks very good for batting throughout. The previous ODI held here recorded the highest total on the ground of 418 for 6 by England against West Indies, and in reply West Indies managed to score 389. Out of 24 ODIs played here, 13 times the teams chasing have won and 9 times the teams batting first have won. The teams in the recent past have generally opted fielding first after winning the toss. It is recommended to go for field first after winning the toss.

 

Winning Prediction

The two teams played total 11 matches so far, and Ireland managed just one win against the West Indies, the hosts won 9, while 1 match was abandoned. Ireland’s nearly had their second victory against West Indies after ICC 2015 World Cup as they came so close to winning the second ODI which eventually went in the host’s favour. West Indies already claimed the series, and the third ODI is just a formality. The statistics are heavily inclined towards West Indies who look very strong on paper compared to the visitors.

 

We predict that West Indies will defeat Ireland aiming at the whitewash.
