    2109 local (0109 GMT) – Oh dear. The heavens have opened up again. It is pounding down at the moment but it is one of those showers which just spray water around and then taper off. This is the third rain stoppage of the game. Stay tuned for what might be a quick resumption.

  • 6:34 AM IST

    Shimron Hetmyer comes in at number 3, replacing Simmons.

  • 6:34 AM IST

    0.5 Paul Stirling to Lendl Simmons, out, OUT! CAUGHT! Poor choice of a shot from Simmons. One can understand that with the fickle weather, West Indies wanted to get as many runs as possible in 5 overs, just in case the match was reduced to that many overs. But no planning in this shot. Simmons sees a half tracker and wildly looks to pull. He is not aware that there is a man stationed at deep mid-wicket and ends up gifting a catch straight to him. Harry Tector takes it comfortably.

  • 6:33 AM IST

    0.4 Paul Stirling to Lendl Simmons, FOUR, FOUR! Up and over! Full and outside off, Simmons comes forward and belts it over mid off. One bounce and into the fence.

  • 6:32 AM IST

    0.1 Paul Stirling to Lendl Simmons, no run, That ball has struck the batsman on the thigh pad.

  • 6:27 AM IST

    West Indies might have a few runs added to their target, due to the DLS method. Stay tuned for the target and the chase.

  • 6:26 AM IST

    Not quite got going tonight, did Ireland. Gareth Delany threatened to play a Paul Stirling type innings, smashing Hayden Walsh for four successive sixes but that was it. No one could really get a grasp of the pitch which seems to be on the slower side.

  • 6:24 AM IST

    Clearly, West Indies will be the happier of the two sides. They bowled and fielded much better tonight, in spite of the wet ball due to all the rain and apart for the 72-run stand between Delany and Balbirnie, they were always in control. Skipper Pollard turned the game around with a 4-fer, his best figures in T20Is.

  • 6:19 AM IST

    18.6 Sheldon Cottrell to Joshua Little, out, OUT! McCarthy is run out on the final ball. But in a chaotic fashion. First, it is a full ball outside off, angling away. Now, for some reason, Little lets it go! McCarthy is already on his bike while the ball was being bowled and is ready to shake hands with Little. But little does Little realize what is going on as he is looking towards the keeper! McCarthy is furiously asking Little why did he leave the ball and in the meantime, Pooran lobs the ball to the bowler who completes the formalities. IRELAND FINISH ON 147/9.

  • 6:18 AM IST

    Joshua Little is the last man in.

  • 6:18 AM IST

    18.5 Sheldon Cottrell to Barry McCarthy, out, OUT! HARRY TECTOR IS RUN OUT! Bull’s eye from Nicholas Pooran. Full and outside off, McCarthy throws his bat at it but misses. The batsmen go for the bye but Pooran takes aim and scores a perfect hit at the striker’s end. Tector has not even reached halfway.

  • 6:17 AM IST

    Barry McCarthy walks in at number 9, replacing Simi.

  • 6:15 AM IST

    18.4 Sheldon Cottrell to Simi Singh, out, OUT! CAUGHT BEHIND! A wicket straightaway after the break. Full and outside off, pretty wide, Simi gets across and slashes hard, only managing to feather one behind. Now, a bit of a drama. The umpire does not initially give it out and the batsmen go for the single. The keeper throws it to the bowler who disturbs the stumps and appeals for a run out. Simi is well in and now Pollard reviews for the caught behind. Ultra Edge detects a spike when the ball passes the bat and Simi is adjudged out. But all this is happening with the new batsman already in the middle!

  • 6:11 AM IST

    UPDATE – 2040 local (0040 GMT) – The rains have abated and the covers are off the pitch. The Windies are out near the boundary. THIS IS NOW A 19-OVER-A-SIDE contest.

  • 5:55 AM IST

    The showers are back on. Again, they are very heavy and the players are forced off the field. Seems like a passing one again. Stay tuned…
