  • West Indies beating Zimbabwe by 31 runs puts them within one win of ‘Super 12’ qualification with all Group B nations currently on 2 points with one round of games left to play.
  • The Windies are unlikely to make any changes following their commanding triumph against Zimbabwe as they try to ride the momentum gained from that match into this one when taking into account the relatively short turnaround in fixtures.


  • An excellent chase of 177 was completed by Ireland with an over to spare which saw them overcome Scotland and keep their chances of qualifying for the next round firmly intact and like West Indies, victory for them here would see them through.
  • George Dockrell has been arguably the standout Irish player of the year so far and he proved his worth to the side once again 39 not out batting at number 6, whilst Curtis Campher broke the back of the chase with a brilliant unbeaten 72 from just 32 deliveries.


Ireland’s batting has rightly come under large scrutiny in recent times, but they answered their critics big time against Scotland, although it will mean nothing if they cannot maintain a high level of performance in this encounter. West Indies look to have finally found their feet heading into this ‘Super 12’ shoot-out and the bowling attack especially really clicked together well last time out, with five of the six bowlers utilised vs Zimbabwe picking up at least one wicket. Although this expected to be a really close and nervy battle, the Windies look to have that extra layer of quality within their bowling and that might just end up being the difference here. Therefore, consider backing West Indies to narrow edge this game.
