Having lost to Australia in their World Twenty20 opener, West Indies would not have the luxury of experimenting against Ireland on Monday, as they need a win at any cost to book a berth in the Super Eight stage.
Although the West Indies start as clear favourites, especially with Chris Gayle in smashing form, the William Porterfield-led Irish side has a penchant for springing a few surprises at the big stage.
The Darren Sammy-led West Indies, despite losing to Australia by 17 runs via the Duckworth-Lewis method on Saturday, showed that it has got the team to go the distance.
On the other hand, the Irish won both their warm-up matches in the before going down to Australia in their first league match of the tournament.
Despite their none-too-impressive performance against the Aussies, the O'Brien brothers -- Niall and Kevin -- showed what they are capable of during their 52-run fifth wicket stand, which helped Ireland reach a total in excess of 120, after reeling at 33/4 at one stage.
