Ireland vs West Indies Preview Dream11. IRE vs WI Preview Dream11 Prediction

The return of ODI Cricket marks a week of plenty of action. It begins with Ireland hosting West Indies and Bangladesh in a Tri-Nations series.

Even though there is no World Cup preparation for Ireland, there is still plenty to play for. They pushed England all the way on Friday, and will now look to push West Indies and Bangladesh all the way. Today, their objective will be to remind the world of their fighting spirit, and against a side with many of its key players out, they are a mighty chance. Can they build on their effort vs England?

For West Indies, spots are up for grabs. Bangladesh, the other touring side, have a full squad on hand to determine their best combinations, which is not the case for the West Indies. A number of their key men are still at the IPL, which gives an opportunity for others to stake their claim. The likes of John Campbell, Sunil Ambris and Roston Chase will be out to impress, and if the Windies can perform well here after a terrific series against England, it will only boost the mood further.

Key to an Ireland win

Ireland’s batting promised more against England. Paul Stirling looked dangerous in his 50+ run opening stand with skipper William Porterfield. However, the regular wickets that followed, including the controversial one of Andy Balbirnie, is something to avoid. While the Windies will be missing key personnel, their pace attack still looks dangerous, so the onus is on the openers to again make a good start, backed up well by the likes of Balbirnie, Kevin O’Brien and Lorcan Tucker. Can they set up a strong platform for the likes of George Dockrell and Mark Adair to play off?

Also, what a debut it was by 19-year old Josh Little. He troubled England, and will be key along with Tim Murtagh and Boyd Rankin in getting into an inexperienced Windies lineup. The regular wickets against England is something Ireland can be very encouraged by, but can they go on with the job? First, can they outplay the Windies in the powerplay period? A great opportunity awaits Ireland.

Key to a West Indies win

The Windies’ batting will be centre of attention in this one. John Campbell has ability, but disappointed against England earlier in the year. Darren Bravo showed some good signs in that seires, and has to be a rock in a middle order that has inexperience. However, the key man will undoubtedly be Shai Hope, who has had a strong 6-12 months in ODI Cricket. The onus is on he and the rest of the top order to set a platform for the likes of Jason Holder and Roston Chase to build on, giving the Windies a strong shot at a big total.

Also, can West Indies’ pace attack trouble Ireland in what is expected to be seam-friendly conditions? There will be no Oshane Thomas, but in Kemar Roach, Sheldon Cottrell, Shannon Gabriel and Jason Holder, the Windies have an attack that can push the Irish right back. They can take a leaf out of Liam Plunkett and Tom Curran’s book from Friday, mixing their lengths nicely to catch Ireland short of footwork. Can they get the better of Ireland’s experienced men?
