West Indies will not be happy to have found themselves in such a situation. This is a do or die match. A loss here will see them out of the tournament.  Ireland were also the group favourite to qualify for Super 12. However, after a loss in their opening game, the Irish also face a tough challenge in this game.

Bowling first in both of their matches so far, Ireland conceded 170+ runs. While they won chasing a target of 177 runs against Scotland, their powerplay concerns are still pretty much there.

West Indies struggled with the bat on both occasions. And it was the bowling effort from the in-form Alzarri and Holder that kept West Indies alive in the race to Super 12.

Both teams will come into this game on the back of a win and are equally desperate for a win. Windies have their bowlers while Ireland have a deep and reliable batting order.

West Indies Preview

Nicholas Pooran continues to disappoint fans and selectors alike. He’s played 9 balls in both of his innings so far in the T20 World Cup 2022.  The Windies skipper is yet to reach a double-digit score. Bringing Johnson Charles in for Brandon King in the game against Zimbabwe worked out well for the 2-time champions.

Others like Kyle Mayers and Evin Lewis have failed to get going even after getting a good start. The top 4 look out of rhythm and this will create a lot of trouble for the West Indies.

There will be a lot of pressure on the middle and lower-order batters like Rovman Powell and Jason Holder to lead the side to a competitive total. After failing to chase 161 runs in their opening match of the World Cup, West Indies were quick to change their decision to bat first in the second match.

And that is what they’ll look to do if they win the toss in the match as well. With the kind of form their batters are in, it seems highly unlikely that they would chase a competitive total successfully.

However, with a strong bowling attack with Alzarri, Hossein, Holder, and McCoy all in good rhythm, West Indies can potentially defend a par total at this ground.

West Indies Predicted Playing XI:

Kyle Mayers, Johnson Charles, Evin Lewis, Nicholas Pooran (c & wk), Shamarh Brooks, Rovman Powell, Jason Holder, Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph, Odean Smith, Obed McCoy

Ireland Preview

Ireland staged a great comeback in the last match after they were reeling at 61 for 4 in the 10th over while chasing 177 runs. Curtis Campher and George Dockrell decided to change gears in the death overs and turned the game around with some brilliant hitting. 

This win should not let Ireland lose sight of their top-order troubles. In their first match of the tournament, Ireland were 64 for 5 in the 10th over while chasing 175 runs.

It looks like a similar picture in both games except for Campher and Dockrell finishing the game for the team. Paul Stirling’s failure to get the team off to a good start is hurting Ireland and a comeback from the opener can be crucial for Ireland’s win here.

Lorcan Tucker and Harry Tector are also key to a good total or a successful run chase. Both of these players can score quick runs and build partnerships as the situation demands.

There is variety in the bowling attack with 7 bowling options for the skipper Andrew Balbirnie who will be eager to get some runs at the top. In spite of a great variety and some very promising names in the bowling department, Ireland haven’t managed to make a big impact.

The lack of timely breakthroughs can hurt Ireland’s chances big-time against the Windies who are eager to make a comeback with the bat.

Ireland Predicted Playing XI:

Paul Stirling, Andrew Balbirnie (c), Lorcan Tucker (wk), Harry Tector, Curtis Campher, George Dockrell, Gareth Delany, Mark Adair, Simi Singh, Barry McCarthy, Joshua Little

Weather Conditions

The pitch at Bellerive Oval in Hobart is a batting-friendly one with many high-scoring matches played here. There can be some movement for pacers early in the innings. However, as the match progresses, it becomes easy to score runs on this surface. The weather is expected to be partly cloudy with a high of 24 degrees Celsius on the match day.

Venue Details

The Bellerive Oval in Hobart will host the last couple of Round 1 matches from Group B. The average 1st innings score at this ground is 169 in domestic T20s and 173 runs in T20 internationals. Out of the 52 T20s, a total of 24 times a team has scored over 170 runs at this venue in Hobart.

Toss: To Bat

Though the pitch is great for batting, both of these teams would prefer to bat first if they win the toss. Teams batting second have won a total of 30 of the 52 domestic T20s played at this venue. West Indies are in no position to chase down a target with their current batting form.

A great batting pitch, a high-scoring venue, and a do-or-die match. The stage is set for one of these two teams to make it to the next round of the T20 World Cup. West Indies have a great squad with big-hitting players who are currently out of touch. Ireland, on the other hand, are struggling in every department, and though the recent win was inspiring, on paper, there are still many issues in this squad. 

It is tricky to pick a winner between these two. A collapse is always around the corner for the West Indies. Barring that, we reckon West Indies have a slight edge over Ireland and will be favourites in our match prediction.

Our prediction is for the West Indies to win the match
