IRE vs WI Dream 11 Prediction: Best Dream11 team for today’s Ireland vs West Indies match as TSR helps you with your Dream 11 team
The Windies and Ireland will take on each other in their second face off in the tri-series. Ireland received a massive drubbing the last time they played against the Windies. While Ireland need at least win and then depend on other results to make the final, Windies need just another win.

IRE vs WI Dream 11 Prediction
Wicket-keeper for IRE vs WI
Shai Hope will be my wicket-keeper without a doubt. Gary Wilson is no match for Hope who also opens the innings and has scored 2 back to back tons in the two matches this series. With scores of 170 and 109, Hope might tee off again in this match against a weak Ireland bowling attack. Get him in and make him your captain for sure.
Bowlers for IRE vs WI
I am going to go with 3 Windies and 1 Irish bowler for this match. This is because Ireland has a relatively weak batting order which I expect the Windies bowlers to run through. They are likely to pick much more wickets than the Irish bowlers and hence , I heavily invest in them.

George Dockrell has been a huge player for Ireland for many years now. He consistently picks up wickets and hence, I pick him in my team. He had a bad day but expect the impactful spinner to make a strong comeback in this match. Kemar Roach also makes my XI. He is a class bowler and with figures of 2/28 in the last match against Ireland, we can expect Roach to cause some damage here too.
Ashley Nurse has been brilliant with the ball and walks straight into my team. Nurse has picked up 4 wickets in 2 matches and all these wickets came in the first match against Ireland when he bagged his career best figures of 4/51. He can trouble the Ireland batters once again along with Shannon Gabriel who was also great with the ball in that match picking up 3 wickets. Gabriel also is in my XI.
All-rounders for IRE vs WI
Paul Stirling will be my first pick here. He is a legend in Ireland cricket and can prove to be destructive with the bat and pick up a few handy wickets with the ball. Stirling opens the batting for Ireland and bowls a few overs. This makes him a player with a lot of fantasy potential. He was not very good in the last match but he will be itching to display his class here. I also make Stirling the vice captain.
Another Ireland all-rounder, Mark Adair, is in my XI. Adair can play a few shots down the order but I mainly got him in since he is a fast bowler who bowls many overs at the death. This makes Adair prone to picking up a number of wickets since batsmen try to maximise the score then and take a lot of risk.
Batsmen for IRE vs WI
Kevin O’ Brien walks into my team on the basis of consistent performances for many years. Most famously remembered for his match-winning knock against England during the 2011 World Cup, Kevin is still going strong and scored a half-century in the last match as well. He needs to be in along with Andy Balbirnie who has been playing some good knocks off late at the No. 3 position. He can take the Windies bowlers apart on his day.
The next batsman would be the Windies right-hander, Roston Chase. Chase will be batting in the top 4 and even scored a fifty against Bangladesh. He is a talented batsmen who is consistent as well. John Campbell scored a century (179) in the first match against Ireland. He sat out of the next game. If he is fit, bring him in. If not, then you can go for Sunil Ambris who will open the batting in Campbell’s absence.
