Commentary

West Indies won by 4 wkts | West Indies Vs Ireland Live Score, Only ODI

William Poterfield: 'I thnink we lost wickets at regular intervals. It got us on the back foot We were 35-40 runs short of a competitive total. We managed to take late wickets. An extra 40 more runs on the board would have been different. It was disappointing to lose the 2nd T20. We never managed to get going today but we fought hard'
Dwayne Bravo is the Man of the Series as well.
Dwayne Bravo: 'It was a great bowling effort. Jason set the tone, Nikita Miller was brilliant in the middle overs. We were happy to restrict them to 202. Cummins is one for the future. He needs to do more work though. I got out at a crucial time, we could have finished it earlier. It was good to see Samuels finish it off despite a groin injury.'
After being stunned by Ireland in the first T20, West Indies struck back to level the T20 series. The hosts papered over the cracks in this ODI with the batsmen ably completing the bowlers. Barring the mini middle overs meltdown, West Indies were comfortable in overhauling the target. Presentation coming at you in a jiffy. Stay glued folks.
Dwayne Bravo is the Man of the Match for his 3-36 followed by a fluent 29-ball-35 with the bat.
Dwayne Smith and Kieran Powell laid an ideal platform for the chase with a busy 100-run stand. Ireland showed signs of battling back in the form of Thompson, who picked up 2 vital wickets. But then Marlon Samuels, sealed the victory with a volley of big hits. In the interim, Dwayne Bravo starred in a charming cameo. Eventually, 202 was not just adequate and West Indies romped home..
