West Indies vs Ireland Preview
The Windies are in terrific form as they wrapped up the first ODI with a brilliant 24 run victory. Sparkling innings from Shamarh Brooks and Kieron Pollard and later combined heroics from the bowlers helped them to claim the victory. The hosts will look to take the series with prior one game left.
Ireland played a brave inning but didn’t have the quality at the end of the day, to see the chase to the end. Andy Balbirnie deserves credit for his influential batting in the run-chase. As things stand, the Irish must win the match in order to stay alive in the competition.

West Indies vs Ireland Top Picks for your Fantasy Lineup
Shamarh Brooks – The West Indies batsman was the standout performer in the first ODI after a brilliant knock of 93 runs from 89 balls with the assistance of 9 fours and 3 sixes. He is in red hot form and we expect him to continue this momentum in the decisive ODI as well. He should be an obvious pick for your fantasy lineup as he is sure to bring in a bunch of points.
Akeal Hosein – He can bowl at any stage of the match that makes him a special bowler for the West Indies. He picked up the important wicket of William Porterfield in the 1st ODI. We had picked Akeal in our lineup in the last match and he came through. This time as well, we are going to persist with the bowler as he is sure to pick up a few scalps at Kingston.
Andy Balbirnie – The Irishman stood strong and tried his best to get his nation across the finish line, but unfortunately, his knock of 71 was just not enough. The Irish were never favorites to win the match but the innings from Andy really made us think that the visitors had a chance. If Ireland has to win the next game and stay alive in the series, Andy will be the key. Make sure you pick him for your fantasy lineup.
Craig Young – The Irish bowler was incredible with the ball and took 3 wickets in the first ODI. The visitors were very handy with the ball, and if it wasn’t for Pollard’s redemption innings, they really had the Windies pinned in the corner. Craig will have to weave his magic in the 2nd ODI to give his nation a shot at surviving the series.
