Match Details and Previews

May 11 Ireland v Windies The Village, Dublin 11:00 AM (10:00 AM GMT)

In the tri-series played between Ireland, Windies and Bangladesh, both Ireland and Bangladesh have played one match each, while Windies have played two.

Ireland lost their opening encounter against Windies, while Bangladesh won their first match against Windies. The last match to be played between Ireland and Bangladesh was washed out without a ball being bowled.

While batting has been the strong suit of Windies, their bowling looks a bit lackluster. It was Ashley Nurse who created an impact in the first match, but with the ball not doing much and Bangladesh being better players of spin, their bowling really struggled to break through.

Shai Hope was exceptional for them as always and scored his fourth century in just the last eight ODIs. Roston Chase also played a good hand against Bangladesh but did not receive good enough support from other batsmen.

It would require a herculean effort from Ireland to bounce back in this game, given that they received a 196-run thrashing against the same opposition. William Porterfield and Paul Stirling will open the batting for Ireland and would have the onus of giving the team a solid platform.

Andrew Balbirnie and Kevin O Brien would be Ireland's crucial players in the middle order. Barry McCarthy was the pick of the bowlers for them in the series opener and would be assisted by Joshua Little and Tim Murtagh.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams.

Ireland- William Porterfield, Paul Stirling, Andrew Balbirnie, Lorcan Tucker, Kevin O Brien, Gary Wilson, George Dockrell, Mark Adair, Joshua Little, Tim Murtagh, Barry McCarthy

Windies- John Campbell, Shai Hope, Darren Bravo, Roston Chase, Jonathan Carter, Sunil Ambris, Jason Holder, Ashley Nurse, Kemar Roach, Sheldon Cottrell, Shannon Gabriel

 

May 11 England v Pakistan 2nd ODI Southampton 11:00 AM (10:00 AM GMT)

The first ODI of the five-match series between England and Pakistan was a damper as the match was washed out after just 19 overs.

Pakistan were 80-2 at that point with Imam-ul-Haq leading the way with an unbeaten 42. He looked solid at the crease and was approaching another half-century.

For England, Jofra Archer managed to impress in the only four overs that he bowled. Archer picked up one wicket, while conceding just six runs and looked the best bowler for the hosts by far.

It looks like Jason Roy is still recovering from his shoulder injury and James Vince will continue to open the batting along with Jonny Bairstow, with Eoin Morgan and Joe Root following. The team will also give another chance to Joe Denly.

For Pakistan, Imam-ul-Haq and Fakhar Zaman have pretty much sealed their opening spots for the World Cup. The team included Mohammad Amir and Asif Ali in the playing XI, both of whom are not part of their provisional World Cup squad. Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik are expected to return for the third ODI.

Shadab Khan has been ruled out of the entire series due to health issues. The fact that Yasir Shah was not included in the playing XI despite the absence of Shadab shows that he is not a part of the team's World Cup plans and will get an opportunity only if Shadab is ruled out of the World Cup.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams.

England- Jonny Bairstow, James Vince, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Joe Denly, Chris Woakes, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Jofra Archer

Pakistan- Imam-ul-Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Haris Sohail, Asif Ali, Sarfaraz Ahmed, Imad Wasim, Faheem Ashraf, Hasan Ali, Mohammad Amir, Shaheen Afridi
