The erstwhile game of the tri-nation ODI series between Ireland and Bangladesh got called off without a ball being bowled. After the abandoned encounter, William Porterfield’s Irishmen are scheduled to play against the Jason Holder-captained Windies at The Village in Dublin. With only two points from two games, Ireland need to win the upcoming encounter in order to stay alive in the tournament.
The Caribbean team, on the other hand, started with a 196-run triumph over Ireland but slumped to an eight-wicket defeat versus the Tigers despite a century from Shai Hope. Though Holder’s men are the firm favourites to win the next contest, a loss could see them depending on the result of the last round-robin game between Bangladesh and Ireland on Wednesday, May 15.
The 4th game of the Ireland Tri-Nation between Ireland and Windies will be hosted by The Village in Dublin.
The match starts at 10:45 local time, 15:15 IST, 09:45 GMT.
The game won’t be televised in India. (Live streaming on YouTube).
Much to the players’ relief, there is no forecast of rain during tomorrow’s game. The clouds are expected to stay away as well. The temperature will be around 11 and 13 degrees Celsius. The humidity will be on the lower side.
Last five completed ODI matches: (Most recent- first)
Ireland – L, L, W, L, W
Windies – L, W, W, L, W
The track is speculated to be a good one for the batsmen. Bowlers need to strive hard in order to pick up wickets. The spinners may not have too much role to play and pacers need to pick up wickets. A high-scoring contest is likely to be on the cards.
Average first innings score: 299 (Last five full 50-over ODIs)
Record of chasing teams: Won – 1, Lost – 4
