Ireland Team News & Playing 11
Ireland had a disastrous outing with both bat and ball in the series opener against the West Indies. Their bowlers got smashed all around the park before their batsmen surrendered to a disciplined West Indian bowling attack. Barry McCarthy managed to take a couple of wickets but he too finished with expensive figures. The seam bowler is the leading ODI wicket-taker at this ground with 13 wickets in 7 matches which makes him the one to watch out for. The hosts, however, will also need the likes of Tim Murtagh and George Dockrell to put up a much better show from last time. Kevin O'Brien, with a score of 68 from 77 balls, was the only bright spot in the Irish batting. The all-rounder has three ODI half-centuries at this ground and he along with skipper William Porterfield, who is the leading run-getter here in this format, are the team's biggest hopes with the bat. Gary Wilson looked promising during his stay at the crease and he seems to hold the key to Ireland’s middle-order batting.

West Indies Team News & Playing 11
John Campbell, who received the Man of the Match award in the opening game for his stunning 179, missed the previous game against Bangladesh with a sore back and was replaced by debutant Shane Dowrich. Campbell will be slotted right back to the opening position if he is declared fit to play and the team will look forward to another match-winning performance from him. Shai Hope is looking in ominous form at the moment. The opener cracked 170 in the first match and followed that up with another fine century against Bangladesh, and the Windies will be hoping that the opener continues his purple patch. Roston Chase, who hit a half-century last time, along with Darren Bravo are the other key figures in this batting unit. West Indies were pretty flat with the ball in the last game where they managed to pick just two wickets during the Bangladeshi innings. They would want to replicate their bowling performance from their reverse encounter with Ireland in which Kemar Roach, Shannon Gabriel and Ashley Nurse all returned impressive figures.
West Indies Predicted Playing 11
Shai Hope (wk), Sunil Ambris, Darren Bravo, Roston Chase, Jonathan Carter, Jason Holder (c), Shane Dowrich/John Campbell, Ashley Nurse, Kemar Roach, Sheldon Cottrell, Shannon Gabriel

Ireland vs West Indies Prediction
After being hammered by the Windies in the opening match, Ireland's previous encounter against Bangladesh resulted in a washout, leaving them with just two points from two matches. The hosts now find themselves under a lot of pressure as they must win both their remaining fixtures in order to make it to the final. West Indies too are coming on the back of a heavy eight-wicket loss to Bangladesh and so they are expected to show no signs of complacency on the field. Ireland do have a few talented players in their line-up but they would all have to perform in unison to stop the mightier Windies. Jason Holder and his boys outplayed Ireland in every department last time and we expect them to put up a clinical performance once again.
Back West Indies to beat Ireland at 1.18 with Betrally and 1.20 with Betway and Bet365.
