When you have a look at the Windies squad for the T20 World Cup 2022, you will see that they will be missing some big names but they have serious power hitters in their squad. Evin Lewis and Nicholas Pooran will be providing Windies with the much needed fireworks in the opening over. Pooran is their top run scorer with 764 runs in 25 innings.
Rovman Powell and Brandon King have some serious slogging power and can provide their team with match winning runs at crucial moments. Johnson Charles and Hetmyer can bat finely as well.
In the bowling department, Akeal Hossein is the man they will be looking at. He has 23 wickets in 22 matches. Jason Holder is an experienced and wonderful right hand fast bowler and on the Australian pitches, he will be crucial for West Indies as he can bowl bounce nicely due to his height. Another star bowler could be Sheldon Cottrell as he has different kinds of action and he is a fine bowler who can trouble the opponent’s batters
The Irish team has given some good performances in the past and they will be looking to win this match. They have a power-hitter as their opener, Paul Stirling, who is the top run scorer from the Ireland team. In the last 28 innings, he scored 610 runs at an average of 22.59. He is a wonderful slogger of the ball and can easily throw the ball out of the stadium.
Another prominent batter from the Irish side is Andy Balbirnie who is the captain of the Ireland team. Kevin O’Brien is a player that has been playing for the Irish side from a very long period of time and with that much experience, he can surely help his team on crucial moments. He too has good batting records. Another batter to look at is Lorcan Tucker. While in the last year, Craig Young, Andrew Mcbrine and Mark Adair have performed exceptionally in the bowling department.
The West Indies team is looking favorite for this match but to defeat the Irish team will be a tough job for West Indies as the Irish team has some serious talent and firepower in their batting.
