WI vs IRE Match Prediction & Analysis

The rain denied the West Indies a chance to even out the series against Ireland in the previous match. As a result, Ireland cannot lose the T20 series against the West Indies and is assured at least a share of the trophy.

West Indies would not want to lose a T20 series to Ireland and will come out all guns blazing in the final match of this series. The rain is not going unfortunately and a lot more is expected on the day of the third T20.

The weather in the islands can be a bit unpredictable and we hope that the rain stays long enough for a result to be achieved.

West Indies vs Ireland 3rd T20 2020 is going to be played at Warner Park, Basseterre, St. Kitts on the 19th of January 2020.

Team Previews

West Indies

West Indies put in a much-improved bowling performance in the previous match. Not only did they knock the openers over early but they also kept a much tighter leash on the scoring. As a result, Ireland could only get 147 from its 20 overs.

Sheldon Cottrell picked up two wickets and gave just ten runs in his four overs while Kieron Pollard picked up four wickets to be the standout performer in the bowling stint.

The West Indian batsmen did not get much of a chance to show what they were capable of but they seemed to be very aggressive in the short time that they did bat. With a star-studded batting lineup filled with six-hitters throughout, we think the West Indian batsmen can afford to play with freedom as they try to maximize their resources.

The West Indians have dependable batting till number eight and they are not going to be out-batted by Ireland too many times. The test for the bowlers is going to be building on the good work they did in the second match.

Ireland

Ireland may not have set the world alight with its batting in the second T20 but it showed enough to warrant some serious consideration. We know that Paul Stirling, Kevin O’Brien, and Andrew Balbirnie can bat well but the emergence of Gareth Delany and Harry Tector is the biggest plus that Ireland will take back from this series.

Delany smashed five sixes in his stay at the crease and showed that Ireland is not going to take a step back. This change in approach is very refreshing to see and promises to serve Ireland well in the future.

Ireland’s bowling is always a concern. The team has to rely on some smart strategies to try and cover for its bowling deficiencies. Players like Paul Stirling and Kevin O’Brien try and slip in an over or two so that the bowlers can get some cushion.

Joshua Little, Simi Singh, George Dockrell, Barry McCarthy, and Craig Young were the bowlers who played the previous match.

There is a sameness around the attack that makes it vulnerable to the West Indian big-hitters. There is no bowler who can bowl at a rapid pace and there is no wrist-spinner that can ask questions in the middle.

WI vs IRE Toss Prediction

The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first with all the rain around.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at Warner Park was pretty good and allowed for some competitive cricket to be played. The batsmen enjoyed the ball coming on to the bat and the bowlers enjoyed a little bit of help from the surface as well.

The underlying nature of the pitch is still a bit slow, though, and this is why the spinners are going to be very important.

The weather forecast for match day is not very good and we could have another situation where the rain comes early in the second inning and prevents any further play from happening. The West Indies will be hoping that the rain comes when enough overs have been bowled to constitute a match.

WI vs IRE Betting Tips

We are backing the West Indies in this match. Their loss in the first game was an outlier and it took a couple of exceptional innings for Ireland to win. The chances of that happening again in the same series are pretty slim. We think the home side will be able to equalize the series if it gets the weather holds.

Bet on the West Indies to win.
