Associates Cricket grew leaps and bounds in the previous year. Apart from Ireland and Afghanistan getting test-playing nation status, the fifty over matches of multiple other associate and affiliate nations got the status of One Day Internationals. While it's been a while since the associates got the ODI status, their matches against the regular teams are too few and too sparse. Ireland will be looking to make the best out of the opportunity they have at their hands when they take on West Indies in a three match ODI series followed by a T20I series comprising of the same number of matches. Up until now, Ireland have not been able to make a mark in the ODI format and they'd certainly be fancying their chances against this relatively inexperience Caribbean side. The first match of the series is to be played at Kensington Oval, Bridgetown.
Considering how dominant India have been in limited-overs Cricket in recent times, beating them is a challenge. And West Indies did that twice - first in the T20Is and then in the ODIs. Even though that wasn't a full-strength Indian squad, it certainly had enough meat in it to worry even the best in the business. West Indies, however, with their characteristic flair, fought hard and impressed one and all.
In this home series, West Indies will be fielding pretty much the same side as they did against India. The only announced change so far has been the omission of Jason Holder, who is rested for the first two matches of the series.
West Indies have had a reasonably good summer as far as ODIs are concerned. Before losing 2-1 to India, West Indies scripted a historic win over Afghanistan and will like to take the confidence forward. West Indies' win over Afghanistan was their first ODI series win in five years.
While West Indies had their moments against India, it was their bowling where majority of improvement was needed. The likes of Shai Hope, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran, and Kieren Pollard were brilliant with the bat and kept Indians on their toes. Their bowling, however, is a little inexperienced, but considering that they are playing at their home turf, the bowlers are expected to the best areas to bowl in, in these conditions.

Dealing with financial headwinds, Ireland already have their home tours under clouds of uncertainity. Afghanistan tour of Ireland is already shelved and Cricket Ireland is exploring the possibility of moving the Bangladesh T20Is to England. With all that happening, much to their fans' delight, their West Indies tour will go ahead as planned.
Ireland haven't played Cricket in a long time now and will be itching to go out on the field. Their last assignment was against Afghanistan, in which they failed to deliver anything of significance.
In the recently concluded tour match, Irish bowlers looked out of touch as West Indies Cricket Board XI cruised to a relatively high total set by Irish batsmen. Barring Gareth Delany and Kevin O' Brien, none of their batsmen was able to play a knock of influence as they ended up with a total of 275.
Their bowling, however, turned out to be extremely poor on the day as almost all their bowlers gave away plenty of runs. Kevin O' Brien was the pick of their bowlers as he returned with the impressive figures of 2 for 23 in his four overs.

Irish Cricket is going haywire for lots of non-cricket reasons, but a win in the first ODI could go a long way in restoring back the popularity and thereby the revenues generated by the game. They haven't played Cricket for a long time and will be a bit jittery, especially in altogether different conditions of West Indies. On the other hand, West Indies are coming off an unsuccesfull but fruitful tour of India and will be riding high on confidence. They are playing at home and are a better balanced side on paper. For the reasons mentioned above, we think that the West Indies are better placed to emerge on top in this all-important encounter.
