Ireland vs West Indies - Highlights & Stats

Ireland vs West Indies - Highlights & Stats”

The dismissals of Shai Hope (30) and Darren Bravo (17) did not put Ambris off, and - with Roston Chase (46) ticking over at the other end - the opener brought up his maiden ODI century with a delicate cut towards deep point. Shai Hope, Jason Holder are the other usual picks.

Choosing to bat first, Ireland lost opener James McCollum early on as he was caught behind off the bowling of Sheldon Cottrell.

In reply, Ireland were bowled out for mere 185 in 34.4 overs.

Shannon Gabriel ended with 2-47 from his allotted 10 overs to be the most successful bowler, but Stirling with 77 from 98 balls and O'Brien with a rollicking 63 from 40 balls kept the West Indies attack on its heels.

Captain William Porterfield fell shortly after, but Balbirnie and Kevin O'Brien steadied things with an 84-run partnership before Balbirnie was caught by West Indies skipper Jason Holder at long-off off the bowling of Jonathan Carter for 135, which came off 124 balls and included 11 boundaries and four sixes. William Porterfield and Kevin O'Brien are the trusted ones from Ireland. "I was always going at more than a run-a-ball, so it wasn't the hardest of innings", he said.

The Caribbean duo were only seven runs shy of the record partnership for any wicket in a men's ODI, with their fellow West Indians Chris Gayle and Marlon Samuels smashing 372 for the second wicket against Zimbabwe in Canberra during the 2015 World Cup. However, West Indies' firepower in batting meant they had enough in the tank to chase the target down on a flat pitch, even if the outfield was rendered sluggish due to rain on the previous day. Ambris capitalised fully, and his aggression allowed Hope to tick along without playing extravagant shots. West Idies won by five wickets.

The cricket teams of Ireland and the West Indies will meet at the Village in Malahide for the fourth ODI of the Ireland Tri-Nation Series on Saturday.

On this day a year ago, Ireland were preparing to host their first day of Test match cricket, only for rain to delay the historic occasion by 24 hours. However, Stirling and Balbirnie set the foundation for a healthy score with a stand of 146 for the second wicket.

"I've felt good for the last two games and found myself getting out weirdly, I felt quite good in training and that I was moving quite well so to be able to put on a big score as a team, as a batting group was very pleasing".

The fourth match of Windies and Bangladesh in Ireland Tri-Series 2019 is between Ireland and West Indies which is scheduled today.
