Editor's Pick (ODI): West Indies - Ireland

You say Ireland, the first thing that comes to my mind is that incredibly romantic movie - P.S.I love you. Yes, I know. This is supposed to be a blog on cricket. Couldn’t help it. Sorry.

So, West Indies is off to play cricket in one of the most beautiful locations in the world. The biggest news is the recalling of West Indies team icon, Chris Gayle. He joins the team after a big gap since the 2015 World Cup. Yes, in the world of cricket, two years is a really long time.
Ireland earned their test status in Jan. It is a big deal indeed. This is their only ODI this time.Ireland has toured West Indies twice and have lost both times. West Indies then go to face Morgan’s team after this match. They want to win too. Jerome Taylor and Marlon Samuels join Gayle on their trip. West Indies want to win because they want to qualify for the World Cup in 2019. India stepped in the way of Sri Lanka’s attempt for the same.
Other news is that John Bracewell is all set to step down as The Ireland Coach in December.

Ireland - William Porterfield (c), John Anderson, Andrew Balbirnie, Peter Chase, Ed Joyce, George Dockrell, Tim Murtagh, Kevin O’Brien, Niall O’Brien, Boyd Rankin, Simi Singh, Gary Wilson, Paul Stirling.
West Indies - Jason Holder ( C ), Sunil Ambris, Devendra Bishoo, Miguel Cummins, Chris Gayle, Kyle Hope, Shai Hope, Alzarri Joseph, Evin Lewis, Jason Mohammed, Ashley Nurse, Rovman, Powell, Marlon Samuels, Jerome Taylor, Kesrick Williams

Editor’s Pick(CPL): Trinbago Knight Riders vs Barbados Tridents

The previous match, Trinbago Knight Riders vs Guyana Amazon Warriors, saw the Knight Riders win by seven wickets. Played at Queen's Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad, Chasing a target of 158, TKR scored 162 in 19 overs. Colin Munro, their highest scorer, hit 70 runs. It was a fairly one-sided match with TKR staying on top for most parts.
The Knight Riders are right on top of the table, with three wins and one loss from four matches played. Their run rate of +1.680 will matter, for sure. DLS has been applied in this tournament and can be applied again. Barbados Tridents come second on the table with two wins from three matches. They earlier beat St Lucas Stars by 21 runs (DLS Method). This will be a close match, considering that both teams are in good form.
Barbados Tridents (From): Dwayne Smith, Kane Williamson, Shoaib Malik, Kieron Pollard(c), Nicholas Pooran(w), Christopher Barnwell, Akeal Hosein, Wayne Parnell, Imran Khan, Ravi Rampaul, Wahab Riaz, Raymon Reifer, Damion Jacobs…
