DUBLIN – Following contrasting results in their first two games of the Tri-Nation Series, West Indies will go in search of an improved performance when they face Ireland again, hoping to secure a berth in the final of the tournament.

The Caribbean side crushed the Irish in their opener last Sunday by 196 runs in a game that featured a world-record opening stand between Shai Hope and John Campbell.

However, they were brought back down to earth a few days later when they were easily brushed aside by Bangladesh in an eight-wicket loss marked by mediocre outfielding and the inability to post a really competitive total.

Captain Jason Holder said it was now crucial West Indies upped their game and rectified the mistakes they made during that loss.

“I thought we batted really well in the first game, and in the second game it was probably a little bit tougher in terms of the pace of the wicket and trying to get runs flowing,” Holder said ahead of the contest at The Village in Malahide. (CMC)
