After beating Ireland comfortably in the ODI cricket series, West Indies were shocked by Ireland in the first T20 game. West Indies were poor in the first cricket game. They bowled poorly and let Ireland get to a total of 208 runs. It could have been even worse when Ireland were 154 runs for just 12.3 overs.

Expert Prediction: WI vs IRE
Ireland have managed to retain the lead in the three-match T20 series, thanks to the rain which abandoned the game in second T20 International. They won the first game by four runs and would be thrilled if they can get away with an away series win.
In the first game, two of the most popular Irish players, Paul Stirling and Kevin O’Brian, gave Ireland a record-breaking first wicket stance. By the time those two were separated, Ireland had scored 154 runs and were well set for a big total. In the end, that partnership proved to be the difference between the two sides.
Ireland do not get too many opportunities to play against the top sides hence, this series is going to be a great opportunity for their players to garner some much-needed experience. They have been beaten comfortably in the ODI cricket series but would like to make amends in the shorter format of the game.
West Indies, on the other hand, would be hurting. Keiron Pollard would be pushing his men to be at their best and remove the complacency that crept in their game in the first T20 international. They have enough arsenal to brush aside Ireland in the next game and they would be backing on exactly that.
