Windies aim for T20 success against Ireland

After wrapping up their first One Say International (ODI) series victory in in the Caribbean since 2014, the West Indies will now look to build on that 3-0 win over Ireland when they meet in the first of three Twenty20 Internationals on Wednesday in Grenada.

The Windies are desperate for a T20 series win, having just six in their last 16 since their 2016 ICC T20 World Cup triumph. The Caribbean side has also lost 10 of their last 12 Twenty20 matches and have won only a single match in each of their last two T20 series.

Dwayne Bravo is also set to play his first international since 2016 after being recalled to the Windies squad. The 36 year old confirmed in December that he was coming out of T20 international retirement with the hope of securing a spot in the squad for the T20 World Cup in Australia later this year. His last international was a T20 against Pakistan in Abu Dhabi in September 2016.

Guyanese batsman Shimron Hetmyer is also expected to return to the playing eleven after being dropped for the final ODI on Sunday. Wednesday's game bowls off at 12 noon Jamaica time.
