    Hope Ireland gives strong performances.


    Does cricket survive off of it's money or does it survive for it's money?

    Jason Holder, the West Indies captain, views the upcoming tri-nation series, against the hosts Ireland and Bangladesh, as a means to fine-tune the team ahead of the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2019, which begins on 30 May in England and Wales.

    Eight of West Indies' 15-member squad will gain some valuable match practice in the tri-series, which gets underway on Sunday, 5 May. "Once we hit all three departments in terms of batting, bowling and fielding well, we'll definitely be a good side at the end of it," said the 27-year-old. "We see this as an opportunity to get into some match practice and start our preparations into the World Cup."

    With a number of Windies players, including the likes of Chris Gayle and Andre Russell, still playing in the Indian Premier League 2019, there is an opportunity for others to display their skill.

    "These guys will see it as an opportunity to showcase what they can do at an international level," said Holder. "I guess many of them haven't played international cricket and have not played ODI cricket, and it's just an opportunity for them to be seen on this circuit. I'm sure they will be keen for an opportunity (to make it to the Playing XI)."

    One of the surprise inclusions in the Windies squad was of the experienced fast bowler Shannon Gabriel, who last played an ODI in 2017. Holder, however, expects Gabriel to play the role of an enforcer on what are expected to be batting-friendly pitches in England and Wales.

    The tri-series is an opportunity for Gabriel to acclimatise as well. "Coming to England, you tend to be gifted with some really good conditions in terms of batting," observed Holder. "There tend to be a lot of high-scoring games and you basically have to outscore the opposition. Most of the times when you do bowl well, you take wickets at the front.

    "Shannon is one we see as an impact player. His role is to come in and make inroads into the middle order. There's been an area of concern in the past where we've struggled to get wickets in the middle period. So having a guy like Shannon who has pace and experience, it's good to have him there and push things for us."

    West Indies play the tri-series opener in Dublin against Ireland on 5 May.

    I hope, we have at least 6 completed games (50/50 overs games are impossible in Ireland, at least we should expect a 20/20 finish, better than wash out). If Ireland is to become a cricket force, they have to do something with this - can't fix weather, and can't play in autumn/winter, so they have to do it other way. It's one of the richest country in world in terms of per capita GDP - they should look to build couple of indoor stadiums.

    I didn't like this tri-series before WC, because winning against IRL or even WIN doesn't prove anything, but losing will be harmful for confidence. Also, Irish weather & ground condition isn't encouraging for players fitness - we are carrying a squad made with fragile glass. 10-12 "acclimatization" games against County sides would have been better.

    I’d be surprised if Bangladesh beats Ireland. Now with Gayle with the West Indies, no chance either team will win a single match against them. Bangladesh’s aim should be to beat Ireland and compete against West Indies,

    I'll be happy if we avoid conceding bonus points in every game - such taluntless bunch shouldn't even deserve to be in WC.

    By the way, somehow we did manage to beat WIN at their home and yes, surprisingly Gayle was playing also.

    Some of the squad selection for the Wc is very strange. Baffling, that Taskin Ahmed is not there. That one trick pony mustafiz will be exposed badly. Also what happened to arafat sunny? The guy that ended fawad Alams career. I don’t understand the obsession with players like naeem Islam.

    I bumped a thread tonight, which had my WC squad predicted few months back .... yes, 14.5 correct and if Taskin makes it, all 15 will be correct.

    I think, those who follow BD cricket actually without trolling, do realize that this is the best squad picked, absolutely nothing strange. Team can perform poorer or better than expectation based on their talunt, but I don't see any way this squad can be improved.

    This Naeem Islam is a 18 years old off-spinner - took a 5for on Test debut and can bat a bit as well, would have made the squad had this WC been in Asia. What he actually is, hopefully we'll see in next few years.

    I think I mixed the names up. I think the 18 year old guy is naeem Hasan. I was talking about naeem Islam the guy that does the cobra dance celebration.

    Also, what are your views in Mohammad naeem the young upcoming batsman averaging 50 at a strike of almost 90 in first class!!

    The dancer’s name is Nazmul, not even in reserves and rightly so.

    I have noticed lefti teen Naeem averaging 50+, but haven’t seen him batting as kid has started career recently.

    Ireland have stagnated since the 2011 World Cup. The bulk of their squad has been around for over a decade now and not enough young talent is coming through. Their performances in the U-19 World Cups are nothing to be proud of either.

    Different context - that time an elite team was flexing their muscles in a practice game; here the taluntless minnows were trying their skill n out to make it close and managed to avoid follow on.

    ICC should replace BD with IRL B in the WC.

    John Campbell and Shai Hope recorded the highest ever opening partnership in ODIs as West Indies defeated Ireland by 196 runs in the first match of the Ireland Tri-Series.

    Campbell notched 179 in just 137 balls, extending his maiden ODI ton to the fourth highest score by any West Indian in the format, while Hope hit 170 from 152, sharing a stand of 365. This also sits as the second-highest partnership in ODI history, behind compatriots Chris Gayle and Marlon Samuels who hit 372 against Zimbabwe in the 2015 Men's Cricket World Cup.

    West Indies hit 381/3, while Ireland effort could only muster 185 with the bat, falling 196 short, and beating Campbell's solo effot by just six runs.

    Having been put into bat, West Indies took control of the game from the early stages. Despite not initially exploding into life, the openers gradually gathered steam as the innings wore on, Campbell bringing up his first hundred in the format from 99 deliveries and Hope reaching the milestone from 112.

    They both kicked on expertly, turning their centuries into big ones, and ramping up their strike-rates to push their side to the highest ever ODI score recorded in Ireland.

    Campbell and Hope both fell to Barry McCarthy (2/76) in the 48th over, and Jason Holder was the third victim, departing on the last ball of the innings as he looked to go big to Mark Adair (1/84).

    Ireland were valiant in their efforts with the bat, however the pressure of maintaining the run-rate in pursuit of such a big total proved too great, and no batsman was able to kick on and record a big score.

    The first three Irish wickets fell in quick succession at the start of the side's innings, Kemar Roach accounting for Paul Stirling (0) and William Porterfield (12), before Sheldon Cottrell pinned the home side to 21/3 with the wicket of Lorcan Tucker (0).

    Kevin O'Brien and Andrew Balbirnie then took the reins, batting smartly, albeit behind the required run-rate, until the latter took a blow to the head from Shannon Gabriel and was forced to depart the field.
    Gary Wilson took over, and momentum was just beginning to take form for the Irish when Kevin O'Brien (68), having notched his 17th ODI 50 in dominant style, smashed the ball straight to Holder at mid-off, the first of four scalps for spinner Ashley Nurse (4/51).

    Wilson added 30 before falling to Gabriel, with Balbirnie having resumed his position out in the middle after making a startling quick recovery.

    Balbirnie (29) lost his wicket to Gabriel shortly after, and Nurse cleaned up the tail with relative ease as West Indies cantered to a 196-run victory.

    West Indies take on Bangladesh on 7 May in the next match of the Tri-Series, while Ireland also play Bangladesh in their next game on 9 May.

    DUBLIN – West Indian opening pair of John Campbell and Shai Hope dominated the day in a big win over Ireland in the first match of the Walton One-Day Series at Clontarf today.

    After losing the toss and being sent into bat, Campbell (179 from 137 balls) and Shai Hope (170 from 152 balls) put on a 365-run opening stand – the highest first-wicket stand in one-day international cricket history.

    While Ireland’s bowlers were on the back foot, the returning Barry McCarthy claimed two wickets (2-76), and Mark Adair claimed his first international wicket for Ireland.

    Ireland’s response got off to a positive start with captain William Porterfield hit three boundaries in the first six balls, but the loss of early wickets meant Ireland was always going to be fighting to keep in the fight.

    Andy Balbirnie, batting positively with several flourishing shots, was struck in the helmet and had to retire hurt. He returned later, eventually dismissed for 29 – during the innings he scored his 1,500th ODI run for Ireland in this his 100th match for the men in green.

    But the best innings of the Ireland batting response went to Kevin O’Brien who hit 68 from 77 balls (seven fours, one six). O’Brien looked in total charge of the bowlers – even the fastest seamers in the Windies attack:

    “Shannon [Gabriel] roughed up a few of us, but we’re going to be facing the quickest bowlers in the world now. I enjoy facing them, as strange as it seems, it’s a challenge, to get in and get into the fight. It’s interesting facing the quickest bowlers, but it’s enjoyable at times.”

    After O’Brien fell, wickets tumbled at regular intervals and Ireland were dismissed for 185, handing West Indies a 196-run victory.

    After the match, Kevin O’Brien gave his assessment:

    “It wasn’t best day in the office. The difference between Friday’s match [against England] and today was that on Friday everything stuck which is great for us on the day, but today everything went just out of reach – they didn’t really give any chances. You’ve got to give them credit, they played very well, it was just unfortunate we didn’t turn up in the field and let them get in and get away.”

    “We were well placed at one stage to chase a total of 330, but perhaps the start we had losing early wickets made it difficult of course to chase 380.”

    When asked what the last two games have taught the Irish side, O’Brien said:

    “I think we’ve learnt how clinical we have to be, to deal with the bad ball and in the field - we can’t drop any catches and have to take the run out chances when they come. Our bowling has to be spot on as we don’t have the raw pace that other teams have, so we’ve got to be very accurate. It’s good that the young guys are experiencing this cricket, the likes of Mark Adair and Lorcan and Josh as well, even the likes of Barry McCarthy who has been in and out of the side as well, it was good for him to get in and get a few wickets – he got his 50th ODI wicket which was good for him.”

    The next match in the Tri-Series is on Tuesday at the same venue between West Indies and Bangladesh.

    Apparently Campbell and Hope have set a world record for the highest ODI opening stand.

    Gayle and Samuels hold the ODI record for highest ODI partnership in any batting position.

    DUBLIN, Ireland – Shai Hope and Chris Gayle have been named as the vice captains of West Indies team for the Ireland Tri-Nation Series and ICC Cricket World Cup, respectively.

    Hope, the 25-year-old wicket-keeper/batsman was named as the deputy to Jason Holder for the ODI Series which started on Sunday and runs until May 18. He played his 50th match for West Indies on Sunday and has so far scored 1,947 runs (average 48.67) including five centuries.

    Gayle, the hugely experienced 39-year-old opener and former captain, will be Holder’s deputy for the ICC Cricket World Cup to be played in England and Wales from May 30 to July 14. He has played 289 matches with 10,151 runs (average 38.16) including 25 centuries and 51 half centuries. His career-best is 215 against Zimbabwe during the ICC World Cup four years ago – the highest score by a West Indian in this format.

    “It’s a tremendous honour to be appointed vice captain for this series here in Ireland. Ahead of this tournament I was asked to take on this role and I was happy to accept. Anything I’m asked to do for West Indies cricket I’m always happy and willing to put my hand up, so this is great,” Hope said.

    Gayle said: “It is always an honour to represent the West Indies in any format and this World Cup for me is special. As a senior player it is my responsibility to support the captain and everyone else in the team. This will probably be the biggest World Cup, so there will be great expectations and I know we will do very well for the people of the West Indies.”

    The West Indies started the Tri-Nation Series on Sunday when they defeated Ireland by 196 runs at the picturesque Clontarf Ground. Hope made a career-best 170 and added a record opening stand of 365 with John Campbell – who scored 179 – his maiden international century.

    Good stuff from Saifuddin, if he can continue to ball well he can give a lot of depth to BD batting as well with batting upto no 9 and Mortaza is also a decent hitter.

    They look a different side now. Bit inconsistent but on a flat track they can cause mayhem. Can beat any team , even England, on their day.

    Chill down and relax bro; you have named teams ranked from 6 to 10 for spots of 7 to 10; which I think no one needs explanation.

    These are sort of practice games and don’t look at it too much. As I said, instead of this tournament, I would have loved to see boys playing 10-12 List A games against County sides to acclimatise with the weather and wickets.

    WIN will have a different team for WC and they’ll surprise some potential favourites as well - only certain starter for them in WC today carried the score to 260, which is most important insights for their batting. Their bowling looks a bit flat but today they might have taken it a bit easy against taluntless BD batsmen.

    Really impressed by Soumya's comeback. He looked out of sorts with his technical flaws exposed and inevitably got dropped. But he seems to have gone away and really worked on his game and returned to the team better than ever. Smashed a blistering century in New Zealand and on his to another fine innings abroad.

    Never was a doubt and we missed a trick in Asia Cup by not opening with him. He has the natural gift of sweet timing and placement, just needed discipline in his shot selection and tightening his defence - talunt bahut kam tha but skills were always there. In fact, Liton will also make a come back.

    Sarkar has already surpassed Tamim, Mushy, Shakib of 2007-2010. Those guys were averaging in 20s at that time. If Sarkar improves his game like Tamim, he has the potential to be best BD batsman till date. Obviously, with BD players thats a big IF.

    Little concerning that both the openers crossed 75 but couldn’t finish the hundred. This opportunities don’t come every day and they won’t have the comfort of chasing below per target against an off colour attack on their shallow day. At least Tanim should have got his hundred today. Still we should win, but there is a big difference in chasing with one of the top 3/opener not out with a big hundred.

    Soumya was always a treat to watch. Some one who could hit Rabada either side of point on vertical bat must have something special. I think, batting won’t be a big issue going forward, and there will be batsmen to replace Tamim, Mushi - Soumya definitely can be one.

    I don’t like this order with top 3 lefti. Liton missed out to Mithun, which is understandable, but then they should bat Sabbir or even Mushi at 3, keeping Shakib at 5. Otherwise, this line up is becoming too predictable and these 3 lefties are so similar with their batting style that it’s almost like bowling in nets to one batsman. In the long run, Tamim should drop down to 3 & Soumya- Liton should open. The next kid in block Nayeem is also lefti, which is a problem. For an unknown reason we probably produce highest number of lefti in top order, which now has become counter productive.

    Didn’t win it yet, but should.

    More than happy, I am actually relieved- I was genuinely concerned that after the all important practice game against IRL reserves, kahin ICC World Cup status na wapas kare....

    Now, I can relax a bit & enjoy even boys to loose next 3 games ........

    What about Yasir Ali?

    I think you raise a good point but your top 3 looks so strong now.
