WI vs IRE Dream11 team, Who will win West Indies vs Ireland 1st ODI Today Match Prediction 8 January


WI vs IRE Today Match Prediction: This series promises to be a cracking one as Ireland are no pushovers in this format and West Indies is a tough team to beat in their own den. This series comes under the ODI super league and hence has all the more importance in competing hard in this series.

West Indies are building a team for the 2023 world cup and their captain Kieron Pollard will be looking to lead from the front. They wont have Evin Lewis and Shimron Hetmyer for this series as both are missing out due to fitness concerns.

WI vs IRE Today Match Prediction:

Ireland won a game against South Africa. It was a brilliant win and they also won against the defending champions in England in England in 2020. They have a pretty decent ODI team and lots of utility players who all should pose a massive challenge to the hosts in West Indies.

The exciting pacer Jayden Seales will be pairing up with Alzarri Joseph and form a potent pace attack along with Jason Holder for West Indies.
