West Indies vs Ireland - summary and statistics

IRE: Andrew Balbirnie, Gary Wilson, Paul Stirling, Gareth Delany, William Porterfield, Kevin O'Brien, Simi Singh, Mark Adair, Barry McCarthy, Andy McBrine, Boyd Rankin, Lorcan Tucker, Craig Young, James McCollum. With the asking rate not too high, it appeared like the duo would take West Indies through, until Simi Singh cleaned up Pooran with a lovely delivery that deceived the half-centurion in the air, lured him to press forward and beat the outside edge of his bat to crash onto the stumps. West Indies needed just 37 off the last 60 balls, but Ireland's chances were as bright, as they needed just two more wickets to pull off a win for the ages. Yet, a good partnership between Nicholas Pooran and Kieron Pollard kept them in command.

What is the expected weather for West Indies vs Ireland? .

Thursday's match was only his seventh ODI.

West Indies will host Ireland in first of the three ODIs today (January 07, 2020) at Kensington Oval, Bridgetown, Barbados. West Indies have now won eight of the nine completed games against Ireland.

Born in the US Virgin Islands, dual-nationality Walsh eventually came to the attention of West Indies selectors through his performances in the Caribbean T20 Premier League.

The 30-year-old became the first number 11 batsman in the history of ODI cricket to finish a chase with a six. In fact, he is also the only No.11 batsman to hit a six during a successful run-chase in an worldwide match.

"Alzarri Joseph again the pick of the bowlers getting another four-wicket haul".

Ireland had also been scheduled to play only its fourth-ever Test match against Sri Lanka next month. He took 4/76 in the 2017 ODI matches against England which was also his first ODI 4-fer. Unfortunately, we didn't perhaps get the rub of the green at the end, but I can't fault the lads and the effort they put in. Alzarri missed joining Roach in both matches after missing out on his 5th wicket in final over of his quota.

In fact, Ireland lost only three ODIs with as few as one ball to spare.

Stirling made most of the going, striking seven fours and a six before becoming one of four wickets to fall for 44 runs in the space of 49 balls as Ireland slumped to 154 for six in the 31st over.
