West Indies will square off against Ireland in the third and final ODI of the three-match series on Sunday, January 12. The match will take place at the National Cricket Stadium, St George's, Grenada. It will commence at 7:00 PM (IST).
West Indies have already clinched the series as they won both the opening games. They won the first game comprehensively by 5 wickets. In the second game, while chasing 242, the Windies had a tough time as they just managed to get over the line with a wicket to spare.
Ireland have not been able to hold their nerves in crunch moments which has resulted in their downfall. But they still have their pride to play for and they would like to win the final game to end the series on a good note. For them to win, it's crucial for their experienced campaigners like Paul Stirling and Kevin O Brien to fire. Post the ODI series, both the teams will compete in a three-match T20I series starting January 15. Let's have a look at the squads and Dream11 prediction.
