Continuing our series of Campaign India ICC World Cup Predictions, we bring you predictions for today’s matches; Ireland v West Indies and England v Bangladesh. On paper they're easy to call, but the Irish have proved that they can churn up a surprise. Our predictors have ignored that and are backing the bigger teams.
Ireland v West Indies: I'll go with West Indies. They are coming on the back of a solid performance against Bangladesh. Their bowling is working well. Irish would need an inspired
performance to beat WI, but i'll go with WI.
England v Bangladesh: England will win this.I think with KP and Broad leaving the squad, the English will be more together and work hard. And after a great win against SA, they are on a high. Bangladesh has not fired at home and don't have the bowling to hold the English.
Ireland v West Indies: No more heroics from the Irish. West Indies beat the Bangladeshis with ease and their confidence is building and I predict a reasonably easy win for them.
England v Bangladesh: This will be a close one to call. Even though England beat South Africa, with Stuart Broad and Kevin Pietersen going home due to injury, England might not have it all their way. Close game, but England will just do enough to win it.
Ireland v West Indies: West Indies' success depends on the form of two people: Kemar Roach and Chris Gayle. If they do well the West Indies, will go on to do really well and I tip them to do well against the Irish.
England v Bangladesh: England showed some good resilience in their victory over the South Africans. I think they'll prove to be very strong for the Bangladeshis and should win the game easily.
