William Porterfield’s side isn’t surely the best of the Irish sides we have seen over the years. The side which had earned the giant killers haven’t had the best of success in the last two years. They look like a team in transition and after being denied a place in the World Cup after playing in three consecutive tournaments due to ICC’s reduced number of slots this will be a good opportunity for the side to make their point. Though the side doesn’t have the most encouraging record against Bangladesh or the West Indies they are playing at their home conditions and blessed with quality seam bowlers they would be looking to cause an upset.
If their performance in the last series against England at home is anything to go by the West Indies would definitely start as favourites to win this tri-series. Though the side would be playing without Chris Gayle who has looked at his best during the series they are surely the strongest side on paper in this tournament. In Kemar Roach and Shannon Gabriel they have a wonderful pace bowling combination that would enjoy bowling on Irish tracks along with skipper Jason Holder. The team would surely be trying few combinations during the series going into the World Cup.
Mashrafe Mortaza is enjoying his captaincy and overall the side has played well in the last couple of years. They would be fielding their World Cup squad during the tournament and test their batting abilities. It would be a big test for the Bangladeshi batsmen especially their top order in the early part of the innings. They don’t have a great record on pitches that offers assistance to the fast bowlers and this is something they would be looking to work on before the tournament. It would also be interesting to see the role their spinners play in conditions that aren’t conducive to spin bowling.
It takes no brainer to guess that the real competition here would be between the West Indies and Bangladesh. Ireland would surprise everyone including themselves if they go onto win the series. Given Bangladesh’s poor track record of pitches that assist the fast bowlers it would be the West Indian side that would start as favourites.
