Ireland vs West Indies Pitch Report

Without a win in the tri-series, Ireland find themselves as the only side yet to begin their sojourn in the points tally. Being mauled by West Indies in the series opener, they saw their second match being wiped out due to incessant rains. As we head into the fourth match of the series, Ireland are in dire need of a win as they face off against the West Indies.

Elsewhere, from the dramatic land of the tournament, West Indies have their own aberrations to face as well. They were defeated by 8 wickets against Bangladesh with their inclement bowling effort being taken apart completely. It was a contentious performance from their pacers which saw them fail to even defend a health total of 261.

With these predicaments staring both sides in the face, the match is set to be one that sees the level of performances be elevated. There’s absolutely no margin for error and either side will be looking to put forward their most rampant foot forward to put down the other with relative ease. It’s bound to be a high scoring match, one where stouthearted shot selection will be rewarded emphatically.

Previous Match

The last time these two had met, Shai Hope and John Campbell had obliterated Ireland from their sights on their way to the highest ever opening stand in international cricket. The 365-run stand between the duo had pummelled Ireland, completing wiping out Ireland from the match single handidly. The 179 from Campbell and 170 from Hope was a complete onslaught as the ball found its way to all parts of the ground, leaving Ireland beleaguered off how to stem the pouring of runs.

A surface that is bound to see runs being scored on it. There will hardly be anything there for the spinners with the ball offering very little turn. The slight covering of grass on the surface though might see the pacers shape the ball across the batsmen with the new ball.

A surface where chasing could prove to be fruitful, the side winning the toss first will be looking to field with a clear idea of what they are looking at.

Key Players

Ireland – Kevin O’Brien, Mark Adair, Barry McCarthy and Lorcan Tucker

West Indies – John Campbell, Shai Hope, Roston Chase and Sheldon Cottrell

Probable Winner

No matter what chance we try to give Ireland, their percentage of a win from this is extremely low if not negligible. West Indies will be hurting after being defeated by Bangladesh and expect them to put on a resolute and solid performance against Ireland filled with valour and resolve.

The West Indies are just too strong in the batting department with a line-up that goes down as low as number 7. And pairing it up perfectly is the pace battery, two aspects with Ireland will have no possibility of negotiating. This should be a one-sided encounter which West Indies come out on top of easily.
