The second ODI between the West Indies and Ireland was an absolute nail-biter. It went down to the wire as the match was won by just one wicket and one ball remaining in the match. The West Indies emerged as the eventual winner but Ireland would have come away from the match pretty happy as well.
Ireland may not have won but it showed enough fight to be able to compete against the West Indies and will try to go one better in this final ODI.
The home team is going to want nothing less than a clean sweep and to rise as much as possible in the ODI rankings. West Indies had to go through a nervy qualifier to be able to make it the 2019 edition and we are sure they would not want a repeat of that experience.
West Indies vs Ireland 3rd ODI is going to be played at the National Cricket Stadium, St. George’s, Grenada on the 12th of January 2020.
The West Indies were lucky to have got away with a win in the previous match. Their bowing performance was pretty good but they were not able to follow that up with the bat and had to depend on its tail-enders to bail the team out.
Alzarri Joseph continued his wicket-taking form with four more scalps to his name as the West Indian bowlers did most things correctly. They kept Ireland to 237, a par total at best, and never seemed in any danger of losing control of the situation.
Hayden Walsh was a bit expensive forcing Kieron Pollard to bowl two overs but Romario Shepherd and Alzarri Joseph were very good. Sheldon Cottrell took some stick and Khary Pierre did not have the best game either. Still, even the worst of the bowlers were not really too bad.
The real problem came with the bat and that is where the West Indies will have to improve rapidly.
Evin Lewis, Shimron Hetmyer, and Brandon King all played poor shots and were out for single figures. Shai Hope and Nicholas Pooran consolidated for a while but could not carry on to make a significant contribution either.
Pooran’s 52 was the highest score of the inning but it was not the most effective. Kieron Pollard was fluent during his 40 off 32 deliveries which included four sixes and two fours. Pollard’s batting has improved so much in recent times that we would love for him to bat a bit higher up the order.
Hayden Walsh scored 46 and played the inning of the night as he stole the game away from Ireland in the death overs. The West Indians would have received a real wake-up call and can be expected to strike back hard.

We had mentioned in the previous match preview that Ireland needs at least one of Paul Stirling or Andrew Balbirnie to play a significant role to be able to compete with the bat. Stirling provided the start they were looking for and top-scored with 63 runs to his name.
He would have loved to convert that into a century and put the total beyond the West Indies but perhaps the other batsmen could have done a bit more too.
Gareth Delany, Andre Balbirnie, William Porterfield, and Kevin O’Brien all got starts and contributed to the total. Even Simi Singh got 31 down the order to help boost the score but not a single one of them went past the fifty mark.
Ireland needs to realize that it cannot hope to be successful at this level banking on just one or two batsmen in every match. The weakness in the batting lineup is going to be its main obstacle in the final ODI as well.
A good bowling performance from Ireland kept it in the match against the West Indies and seemed to have put it on course for a win. The bowling unit could not finish off the tail and they will regret that but still take some confidence from the performance into the last match.
Barry McCarthy, Andy McBrine, and Boyd Rankin all bowled very well. They must repeat the same in the last match to have a chance.

The team that wins the toss is going to want to bat first. Chasing can be a bit difficult on the slower West Indian surfaces.

There is about a 25% chance of rain that has been predicted in Grenada on match day. This is not too bad for the Islands and we should be able to get a full match in with a few interruptions along the way. The pitch at St. George’s Park is traditionally a bit slow and difficult to score on.
It does not have anything much for the spinners but the lack of pace makes batting a bit difficult too.
We think a score of about 250 batting first is going to be considered as par.
The West Indies team suffered a big scare in the previous match and would like to show that as a one-off occurrence. We have seen the West Indian side be ruthless and aggressive under Kieron Pollard and have no doubt it is going to come hard at Ireland in this match. A bit more sensible batting and the West Indies can run way ahead of Ireland.
