West Indies vs Ireland Head to Head in ODIs: Total 14: WI 11, IRE 2
Despite losing the second ODI, West Indies are still the favorites to claim the victory in the third ODI and seal the series. Nicholas Pooran and Shai Hope have not had their best series with the bat so far, and one can expect a big innings from them in the third ODI. Jason Holder was also pretty ordinary in the last game, as he went without a wicket in the last game, as did Alzarri Joseph.

The third ODI will be played at the same venue as the first two. The pitch is more suited to bowlers than it is to batters. As evident in the first two ODIs, batters have to toil hard to score runs. Slower bowlers are able to get more purchase from the wicket, and the middle overs of the innings are really crucial. A low scoring encounter is on the cards.
