Ireland cannot lose the 3-match T20I series in West Indies. In fact, all they need to win the series is another washed-out match.
West Indies, 0-1 down in the 3-match T20I series, will now host Ireland for a double header at Basseterre.
Dwayne Bravo’s return will occupy all the attention and add to Ireland’s troubles.
West Indies have included Dwayne Bravo in their squad; Root missed nets ahead of the Port Elizabeth Test; and the Royals will play the Challengers in Qualifier 2 of the BPL, the winner among whom will face the Tigers in the final.
