WI Vs IRE Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: Final chance for west Indies to restore parity in the series.
West Indies ended up ruing rain yesterday. In a firm position to win the second T20 against Ireland, the home side were refrained from doing so as inclement weather ended up abandoning the tie.
Lashing the surface at different periods, incessant rainfall meant that West Indies were unable to get their run chase underway. Their pursuit was curtailed at 16-1 as they moved out to ease past the 148 run target which was laid out for them by Ireland.
It was a particularly damaging eventuality for west Indies owing to the fact that they can’t win the three match T20 series now. Already having lost an edge of the seat thriller by 4 runs, the side find themselves with only the chance to rescue the series today when the two sides step out to the middle for their second outing in as many days.
With us set to be in for treacherous batting conditions, we envision West Indies prevailing today. Yesterday’s clash showed that Ireland are vulnerable in such conditions and with West Indies having a repertoire of worldclass bats, the home unit should manage to cruise their way to a win.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
Rain ended up lashing yesterday’s encounter, making an otherwise solid batting surface an adverse wicket. And with there being a cloud cover prevelant for this upcoming tie as well, we are going to see the surface continue to play atrociously for the batsmen, one where the team will prefer to chase.

WI Vs IRE Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
Nicholas Pooran didn’t bat for his side yesterday but the wicket-keeper still played a heavy role for his side with the gloves. And with Ireland set to crumble with the bat today as well, we are going to make him an instant pick for us given the two toned duties he’s serenaded down with.
WI Vs IRE Dream11 Batsmen
After his 94 runs in the first T20, a match winning knock, opener Paul Stirling was always going to be a must have player for us for this forthcoming encounter. Elsewhere, we are moving in with the two players from the home side with our partnership beginning with Elvin Lewis.
He’s been in electric touch ever for quite some time now, something which was epitomised in the series opener as he raked up a half-century to his name. Lendl Simmons has yet to endure a solid innings out in the middle, but he’s someone who has the calibre to come up with runs to see us opt for him for the outing as well.
WI Vs IRE Dream11 All-Rounders
Kieron Pollard was forced to take up the ball yesterday after his regular bowlers were cut short and blown apart by Ireland. And the decision massively paid off for his side as well as the captain returned with the 4 wickets to make him the first name to be enshrined in our unit here.
Dwayne Bravo will be joining him while from Ireland we are venturing in with Gareth Delany. He top scored for his side with 44 runs yesterday, a knock which grew in stature given the tricky conditions it came under.
WI Vs IRE Dream11 Bowling Order
At a time when everyone around him was taking a beating, West Indies new ball operator Sheldon Cottrell ensured he was able to make the most of the wet conditions on offer. His spell of 2-10 left Ireland beleaguered, leaving them appalled as to how to get under his deliveries.
Romario Shepherd comes in as well from the side while from Ireland we have a reminiscent partnership coming in as well.
We begin with Joshua Little, someone who snared four wickets in the first T20, a spell which not only ruffled West Indies but left them in remorse while chasing their target.
George Dockrell partners him up owing to his escalated batting order which makes him a solid option with the bat as well.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Stirling will be our captain for this one while Lewis is the vice-captain.
