Coverage will be LIVE on ESPN and ESPN2 in the Caribbean. ESPN Play – ESPN’s multiscreen live and on-demand broadband service – will stream all the matches.

Holder said his team’s aim is to secure their second victory and book a spot in the final. West Indies beat Ireland in their opening match but lost to Bangladesh in their second encounter earlier this week.

 “I want us to focus on this game coming up, against Ireland, get a win and then move on. I don’t think we should look too far ahead. We are here as part of the preparations for the World Cup, but we also have to take things step by step and day by day,” Holder said.

 “I’m happy with how things have gone so far, the players are working very hard and have been very disciplined. We probably weren’t at our best against Bangladesh on Tuesday, but we’ve had tons of discussions on how we can improve. I’m positive we will get the better of Ireland, and put up a much better showing when we come up against Bangladesh second time around.”
