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.

Pitch Condition/Report:

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)
