Cricket Betting Tips and Match Predictions: West Indies vs Ireland - Ireland tour of West Indies 2022 - 3rd ODI
The 3rd ODI of the Ireland Tour of West Indies, 2022 will take place between West Indies and Ireland at the Sabina Park, Jamaica.
Current Form Ireland and West Indies:
Ireland have managed to level the series 1-1 after winning the second ODI that was rescheduled due to Covid.
Ireland won the toss and elected to field first. Shai Hope and Justin Greaves once again failed to provide West Indies a steady start. They were both removed by Craig Young, who bowled with great accuracy. Nicholas Pooran too lost his wicket early on and West Indies looked in all sorts of trouble. Shamarh Brooks continued his good form and smashed 43 off 64 balls to list the West Indies innings. Skipper Kieron Pollard failed to repeat his heroics from the first ODI and got dismissed for 1.
At one point, West Indies were 143 for 8 and it looked like they would not be able to reach the 180 run mark either. However, a brilliant partnership between Odean Smith and Romario Shepherd got the team past the 200 run mark. Smith made 46 off just 19 balls. His innings featured 5 huge sixes. On the back of Shepherd and Smith’s awesome performances with the bat, West Indies got to a total of 229 before being bowled out.
Chasing 229, the openers Paul Stirling and William Porterfield started off on a positive note and collected quick 37 runs for the first wicket. Stirling was dismissed for 21 while Porterfield made 26 before being dismissed. Andy McBrine and Harry Tector then took the responsibility to take their team over the line.
Rain interrupted during the second innings and the match was reduced to 36 overs with Ireland needing 168 runs. McBrine made 35 while Tector remained unbeaten at 54 off 75 balls to take the Irish team home with 5 wickets in hand.
