A must-win game for Ireland
The result of the first ODI was on the cards given the recent form of West Indies in the format. But a lot thought Ireland would give some fight considering their recent series win. It was not that transpired and now they need to win the second match of the series in order to stay alive in the series. Windies, on the other hand, likely to continue the domination.
West Indies possible XI
Shai Hope (wk), Evin Lewis, Brandon King, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran, Kieron Pollard (c), Roston Chase, Keemo Paul, Hayden Walsh, Alzarri Joseph, Sheldon Cottrell
Ireland possible XI
Paul Stirling, Gareth Delany, Andrew Balbirnie (c), William Porterfield, Kevin O Brien, Lorcan Tucker (wk), Simi Singh, Andy McBrine, Mark Adair, Boyd Rankin, Barry McCarthy
The surface in Barbados has been on the high scoring side in the previous season. But if anything is to take from the first ODI of the series, the surface seems to be a two-paced one where stroke-making isn’t straight forward. Ther is a forecast for rain early in the morning but the skies are clear for the match.
