Well, West Indies white washed 3 match ODI series against Ireland. Will they be able to do the same in T20I Series? Well, it will all get started with the 1st t20 which will be played in 15th January 2020 at St George’s.
West Indies who dominated the ODI series against Ireland will look to do the same in T20I series.The last t20I series against India was very competitive, West Indies made really tuff for India to win the series.
Although West Indies are very effective in T20 matches their ICC T20 ranking has not been great. They rank 9th position in ICC T20 ranking. They want to improve that as they have very qualitative T20 players.
Ireland has the record of creating history, either it will be in the World Cups or against big teams like England, Pakistan. But in order to beat West Indies in T20 format, they need to play some quality cricket.
