Dublin, May 11, Saturday at 3:15 PM
After facing 196 runs defeat in the opening game against Windies, the hosts Ireland will be looking for their maiden win when they reload against Windies at The Village, Dublin on Saturday noon. The first round of the tri-series is over and it’s time for the sides to face each other for the second time.
In two games played so far, Windies has one win and one loss. They started their campaign with a gigantic 196 runs win over the hosts but failed to carry the momentum and faced 8 wicket drubbing at the hands of Bangladesh in the second encounter.
The hosts need to win this encounter in order to stay alive in the competition. Placed at the bottom, Ireland is winless in the series so far as their second encounter against Bangladesh got abandoned due to rain. With two more games remaining, Ireland still has chances to redeem themselves.
The first meeting of both the sides witnessed a record 365 runs opening partnership between Shai Hope (170) and John Campbell (179) which guided Windies to a giant total of 381/3.
Coming to chase, Ireland folded up at 185 runs in 34.4 overs and fell short by 196 runs. Ashley Nurse (4-51) and Shannon Gabriel (3-44) were the picks of the bowlers for Windies.
As per the weather forecasts, there are minimal chances of rain. However, clouds will linger throughout the game which could help pacers a lot, especially swing bowlers.
