Little, McCarthy Recalled for Ireland’s T20I with West Indies

Ireland will battle the West Indies in their upcoming T20I series but will have to do it undermanned after player recalls and omissions.

Ireland is set to play three ODIs and as many T20Is next month against the West Indies. The squad will play with a younger core, led by Andrew Balbirnie. The latter took over the T20I captaincy from Gary Wilson.

The squad now features 14 players instead of 15. Josh Little and Barry McCarthy have been brought back to Ireland, while Shane Getkate, David Delany and Stuart Thompson have been omitted.

Ireland won their last T20I back in September, which was a tri-series against the Netherlands and Scotland. They defeated Scotland by one run in the final match to clinch the series.

It would be a different story when the team plays against the West Indies. Since 2010, the two teams have only played four matches against each other. The Carribeans have a 2-1 lead after the other game was not concluded.

The team will play just one side game in the tour, which is a 50-over match that is set on January 4. That leaves very little time for the Irish players to adapt to the conditions and play good cricket.

The T20I series between the two teams will have its cricket odds soon, so make sure to stay updated on the latest cricket odds with Betwala.
