Belfast isn’t a high-scoring ground by modern standards – England’s 301 in 2006 remains the highest total. Scores in the range of 250 to 260 have been par at the venue. But there’s a high chance we will see a shortened game on Wednesday. The forecast hints at an overcast day with regular showers scattered throughout. Roston Chase has been dropped from the ODI squad and Kyle Hope has managed 41 runs in six Test innings so far in England. Those two spots are likely to be the ones Gayle and Samuels will occupy. Barry McCarthy and Craig Young have been ruled out with injuries, cutting Ireland’s seam options down to four. Boyd Rankin is a sure starter alongside Tim Murtagh. Kevin O’Brien provides a seam option too, so Ireland could be tempted to play leg-spinner Jacob Mulder alongside George Dockrell.
