WI Vs IRE Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: West Indies look to complete a sweep of the three match series come today.
After cruising their way to a win in the series opener, West Indies were made to tough it out in the ensuing fixture. A much improved Ireland outfit threw the kitchen sink and more at the hosts in what transpired to be an edge of the seat thriller run chase for West Indies.
A jaffer of a contest, West Indies ended up winning right in the culminating over by the one wicket. Coming out to get past the 238 run target laid out infront of them, the hosts kept losing wickets at regular intervals but a 32 run stand for the 8th wicket saw them just about scrape their way through an unlikely win.
While the defeat means that Ireland have nothing left to fight for in terms of the series, the side will be looking to show the same determination and reslliance which made the last encounter such a cliff-hanger. They’ll be looking to salvage something for their fortitude come today and once again punch above their weight as they look to show why they are touted so heavily in the fraternity.
The previous encounter saw Ireland show why they are capable of defeating any side in the world as the side perturbed West Indies with some impeccable bowling. However on this surface where the batsmen will thrive, we envision things being tricky for the visiting setup to see them being putdown to a third defeat in a row.

WI vs IRE Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
Shai Hope has yet to emulate the same touch which saw his rip into India’s bowlers but the opener did come up with a sensible 25 run knock the last time around to see us get him in for the day. It was a well constructed knock from his bat, one which saw him hold down fort for the side to see us repose faith in him once again.
He’s going to be accompanied by his counterpart Nicholas Pooran who came up with 52 runs for the side the last time around.
WI vs IRE Dream11 Batsmen
Just the one pick for us from West Indies in this ambit with Elvin Lewis being brought in by us from the side after a stellar knock in the series opener. Elsewhere from Ireland we are roping in opener Paul Stirling as the first pick with the player smashing his way to a piquant 63 run knock the last time around for his side.
William Porterfield will be our second pick from the side with the player putting on 29 runs in the same tie, an innings which came at a critical time to see his side accrue some much needed runs at the end.
WI vs IRE Dream11 All-Rounders
Kieron Pollard is picked up by us from West Indies not only owing to the 40 runs he got for his side the last time around but massively owing to the time they came in. He came out to bat when his side was languishing at 76-4, putting on a 64 run stand for the fourth wicket with Pooran to revive a lopsided run chase for his side.
Elsewhere from the opposition, Simi Singh was an undisputed pick for us. With 34 runs and the three wickets in the last encounter, he came up with a truly all round effort, one which showed why he’s been regarded so highly by his side.

Hayden Walsh went wicketless the last time around for the home side but he came up with 46 invaluable runs right in the culminating stages to make him our third pick from the side. Elsewhere with two wickets in the same encounter, Barry McCarthy completes our set of picks as the lone player from Ireland.
