West Indies vs Ireland T20I series 2020 – 1st T20I
Ireland Tour of West Indies:
This is going to be only second T20I series of Ireland against West Indies, but the last visit of Ireland was pretty encouraging for the visitors, as the series was concluded as draw with 1-1.
Victory brings points:
The series is very good opportunity for the visitors to improve their points as well as the position. If the visiting team will lose the series with at least one win, then also the team will lose nothing, and series win will help the team to one position above from the current, only white wash for the visiting team will drop one position down, on the other hand, only three-nil will help the home side to improve points, in any other possibility, the host will lose the points, though, the team will not lose its position, in any case.
Precipitation for the weather of venue for tomorrow shows 60% at the time of match start, so it is possibility of rain for tomorrow, but hope for the best for the match to play.
