West Indies vs Ireland 3rd ODI Betting Tips 16/01/2022

Zohaib Ahmed, Senior Author

The 3rd ODI between West Indies and Ireland will be played on Jan 16 (Sunday) at Sabina Park, Kingston, Jamaica. The match is to begin at 8 pm IST.

Teams Status


In the second ODI, Ireland had several players, including their captain Andy Balbirnie, missing but still managed to upset their hosts in a rain-hit encounter that worked in their favour.

The European side bowled first, dismissed the Windies for 229, thanks largely to their spin bowler Andy McBrine’s four-for.

During the run chase, the Irish were 157-4 in the 32nd over when the heavens opened up. The revised target was 168 off 36 overs, which made the task extremely easy for them. Harry Tector again scored a half-century, as he had in the series opener.

Balbirnie, Lorcan Tucker, Simi Singh, and Ben White will continue to remain missing but good thing is that Paul Stirling is back and did feature in the second ODI.

West Indies

West Indies will feel hard done by in the second ODI. At 157-4, they’d have taken their chances against the Irish but unfortunately for them, they drew the short straw and the post-DLS scenario left them with little runs to defend.

That said, most of the Windies batters had hardly wrapped themselves in glory. A bulk of their 229 runs were scored by just three batters, with Shamarh Brooks scoring 43, and most importantly, number nine batter Romario Shepherd top-scoring with 50 and number 10 Odean Smith contributing 46. Add 30 runs of extras and you are left to wonder what exactly did the other eight batters, including the entire top order did.

Talking about individuals, Nicholas Pooran has failed in both the matches and needs to step up. Roston Chase has fared a little better and needs to do more.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Kieron Pollard total runs over 21.5 @ 1.87

Kieron Pollard is probably the most accomplished and dangerous batsman on either side. The Windies captain scored 69 in the first ODI win but fell to McBrine for just 1 in the follow-up game. With the series and the pride on the line, expect Pollard to deliver. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.

Tip: Harry Tector to score more than 18.5 runs @ 1.87

Harry Tector has been the best Irish batter across the first two games, scoring half-centuries on both occasions. If the Irish win, he could be the leading contender for the player of the series award. For that, he’d have to contribute a bit more with the bat in the series decider. Another 50 will boost his chances significantly but for our purposes, we need him to score only 18.5 runs and more. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.


The Windies have more talent but the Irish seem a better team unit. We’re not picking a winner here but if we had to we’d take a small punt on the Europeans.
