  • West Indies might have a few runs added to their target, due to the DLS method. Stay tuned for the target and the chase.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 18.6 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.
  • Joshua Little is the last man in.
  • 18.5 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.
  • Barry McCarthy walks in at number 9, replacing Simi.
  • 18.4 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!
  • 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.
  • 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...
  • 18.3 Outside off, Tector looks to play the reverse sweep but the ball goes off the bottom edge towards cover. A run taken.
  • 18.2 Full and outside off, pushed through the covers for a run.
  • 18.1 Short and outside off, crashed through point for a single.
  • Sheldon Cottrell is back on. 3-0-7-1 so far.
  • 17.6 Played to the mid-wicket region by the batsman. One run added to the total. That is it for Polly. 4-0-25-4. What a performance. 144/6
  • 17.5 SIX! BLAST! A short ball, outside off, Tector comes down the track and swings it over mid-wicket for a biggie!
  • 17.4 SAFE AND OVERTHROWS. Landed outside off, Simi pushes this towards backward point and sets off for a single. Dwayne Bravo charges to the ball and fires a throw at the bowler's end and hits. The ball deflects off the stumps towards wide long on and the batsmen return for two more. The umpire waits for all these events to occur and then refers it upstairs. Replays show that the batsman is safe.
  • Direct hit! Is Simi Singh in trouble? Referred upstairs. Nope. Replay shows that he has made it.
  • 17.3 Around middle, worked through mid-wicket for a run.
  • Simi Singh walks in at number 8, replacing Dockrell.
  • 17.2 OUT! CAUGHT AND BOWLED! Pollard has his 4th. Another slower ball, around off, on a length. Dockrell looks to hit this down the ground but is way too early into the shot. Gets a leading edge and the ball goes straight up in the air. Pollard runs back a touch and takes it.
  • 17.1 Full on middle, flicked through mid-wicket for a single.
  • 16.6 Full and outside off, Tector looks to get this over the top but mistimes it badly towards long off. A run taken. That is Shepherd done for the evening with the ball - 4-0-38-1. Bowled with pace. 132/5
  • 16.5 Works this through mid-wicket for a couple.
  • 16.4 Full and outside off, pushed through the covers for one more.
  • 16.3 Outside off, reverse lapped to short third man for a run.
  • 16.2 Yorker on off, Dockrell backs away and squeezes this through the covers for a single.
  • 16.1 THE BAT IS BROKEN! A perfect yorker, around middle, Tector looks to get his bat down, but it is snapped into two! The ball goes to point and a single is taken.
  • George Dockrell walks in next. Romario Shepherd comes back on as well. 3-0-31-1 so far.
  • 15.6 OUT! BOWLED! The slower delivery does the trick and Polly has his third. It is around middle and leg, Wilson looks to flick but is way too early into the shot. The ball comes in, misses the bat, hits the pad and trickles onto the stumps. Pollard continues his merry evening. 3-0-13-3 so far. 125/5
  • 15.5 Comes down the track and pulls this to deep mid-wicket for a run.
  • 15.4 Landed around off, Tector looks to play the reverse pull but is hit on the glove.
  • 15.3 DROPPED! Evin Lewis loses the ball in the lights. A length ball, around middle, Wilson looks to pull but is way too early into the shot. He skies this up in the air towards mid-wicket but Lewis in the deep does not pick it. He starts to run late and in the end, has to dive for the catch. Spills the ball. A single taken.
  • 15.2 Dropped short, pulled wide of mid-wicket for a couple.
  • 15.1 A length ball, on middle, swung towards deep square leg for a single.
  • 14.6 Pushes this through mid on for one more. 120/4
  • 14.5 Down the leg side, Gary looks to paddle but misses. The ball goes off his pads through fine leg. A leg bye is taken.
  • 14.4 Excellent slower ball, outside off, a full toss, Wilson does not pick it and swings early. Misses.
  • 14.3 Full and down the leg side, Tector looks to flick but misses and is hit on the pads. Bravo appeals for LBW but that was going down the leg side. A leg bye taken.

  • Dwayne Bravo returns. 2-0-14-0 so far.

  • 13.6 Full and outside off, driven through mid off for a run. 5 runs and a wicket from the over, Pollard's figures read 2-0-8-2. 114/4
  • 13.5 The batsman guides it to third man. The batsmen have run through for a single.
  • 13.4 Outside off, steered to third man for a single.
  • 13.3 Down the leg side, Tector looks to pull but misses. Pollard appeals for a catch down the leg side but it is turned down. No wide signalled either. What did that hit then? Shirt?
  • Gary Wilson walks in.
  • 13.2 OUT! CAUGHT! Shepherd makes amends for the dropped catch in the last over. A length ball outside off, Balbirnie gives himself room to the leg side and looks to go inside out. However, he hist this into the wind and does not quite get the distance. But Romario Shepherd covers good ground to his right from sweeper and dives to take a very good catch. Pollard is pumped up.
  • 13.1 Works this through mid-wicket for a couple.
  • 12.6 SIX! That is a flat hit. Full and in line of the stumps, Tector gets down on a knee and blasts this straight back over the bowler's head. 109/3
  • 12.5 Full on middle, pushed through mid on for a run.
  • 12.4 Around middle, flicked through mid-wicket for a single.
  • 12.3 DROPPED! Miscommunication, or no communication results in this. A slower ball, outside off, Balbirnie looks to go big but miscues. The ball goes straight up in the air towards short extra cover where Dwayne Bravo readies himself for the catch. However, the bowler too goes for the catch, does not call and collides into Bravo, thereby dropping the ball. A single taken.
  • 12.2 The ball has found the edge of the bat. One run added to the total.
  • 12.1 A length ball outside off, dabbed to third man for a single.
  • Romario Shepherd returns. 2-0-20-1 so far.

  • 11.5 The ball has found the edge of the bat. One run added to the total.
  • 11.4 Works this down the leg side for a single.
  • 11.3 Landed outside off, Balbirnie plays this uppishly and almost finds point.
  • Harry Tector comes to the crease.
  • 11.2 OUT! CAUGHT! That is a very, very good catch by Khary Pierre. A length ball, around middle, slower in pace, Delany gives himself room to the leg side and looks to go big. He gets massive height on this one but not quite the distance. Pierre runs to his left from long on and takes a stunner.
  • 11.1 Landed outside off, Delany initially lets it go, then attempts to steer it to third man but misses.
  • The skipper brings himself on now. Kieron Pollard to bowl.
  • 10.6 Full on middle, pushed through mid on for a run. 95/2
  • 10.5 That ball has taken the inside edge onto the pads. The batsmen have run through for a single.
  • 10.4 FOUR! Beautiful batting. Full and wide outside off, Balbirnie backs away and steers it behind point!
  • 10.3 Short and outside off, cut through point for a run.
  • 10.2 The batsman defends it from within the crease.
  • 10.1 Outside off, steered to short third man for a quick single.
  • 9.6 SIX! 25 FROM THE OVER! 4 successive sixes. This one is short again and Delany pulls. On this occasion, over mid-wicket. Ireland get some momentum. 87/2
  • 9.5 SIX! Ho ho ho! He is taking a liking to the leggie. Outside off, Delany gives himself room to the leg side and clobbers this over long off!
  • 9.4 SIX! Same shot. This is even bigger and ain't coming back! The wrong 'un from Walsh again, Delany goes back and swings it over long on. The ball hits the roof and then clears the boundary. 50-RUN STAND COMES UP.
  • 9.3 SIX! BLAST! The googly, from Walsh, Delany picks it and gives himself room. He waits for the ball right in his arc and lofts it miles over the sightscreen. Right into the cameraman's box!
  • 9.2 TURN. Landed outside off Delany goes back to cut but is beaten by the away spin.
  • 9.1 Full toss, around off, pushed down to long on for a single.
  • Balbirnie is seen stretching his legs. But he does not seem to be in too much discomfort. Hayden Walsh gets a change of ends as well. 1-0-7-0 so far.
  • 8.6 Full and outside off, Balbirnie looks to go inside out but does not quite middle it. Luckily for him, it does not go to long off. A run taken. 62/2
  • 8.5 Full and wide outside off, almost a yorker, squeezed through point for another single.
  • 8.4 Played through mid-wicket by the batsman. The batsmen have run through for a single.
  • 8.3 Full and straight, driven down to long on for one.
  • 8.2 EDGED, BUT SAFE! Landed outside off, Balbirnie throws his bat at it and gets a thick outside edge which flies down to third man. A run taken.
  • 8.1 Full on middle, pushed through mid on for a single.
  • Dwayne Bravo to bowl now.
  • 7.6 The batsman has punched the ball off the back foot. They pick up a single. 56/2
  • 7.5 SIX! That is a bit too short from Pierre. In line of the stumps, Delany goes back and heaves this over the bowler's head. Right onto the sightscreen.
  • 7.4 Punched off the back foot by the batsman. Spirited effort by the fielder to save runs for his team.
  • 7.3 Short and outside off, punched straight to cover.
  • 7.2 Around off, pushed through mid on for a run.
  • 7.1 Short and around off, punched through the covers for a single.
  • 6.6 It's been driven superbly through the covers. Good effort by the fielder to save runs for his team. 47/2
  • 6.5 Short and in line of the stumps, punched straight to point.
  • 6.4 Full and outside off, driven through point for a single.
  • 6.3 FOUR! BELLIGERENT! Short and around off, Delany pulls this through mid-wicket ad finds the fence.
  • 6.2 A touch short, worked through square leg for a run.
  • 6.1 Full toss, outside off, punched down to long off for a single.
  • Hayden Walsh to make it spin from both ends.

  • 5.5 Outside off, driven through the covers for a couple.
  • 5.4 FOUR! Tough luck for the fielder. Outside off, Balbirnie steers this through backward point. The fielder hares after it, dives to pull the ball back in, but while doing so, he disturbs the skirtings. Replays then show that the ball had touched the place where the rope originally was.
  • 5.3 FOUR! Neatly done. Full and outside off, Balbirnie gets down and paddles it over short fine leg for a boundary.
  • 5.2 Backs away to the leg side, throws his bat at it and gets a thick outside edge. No slip is present and hence a single is earned to short third man.
  • 5.1 Down the leg side, worked through mid-wicket for a single.
  • It is drizzling again. The groundstaff is getting ready. Play continues though. Khary Pierre to bowl the final over of the Powerplay.
  • 4.6 Outside off, driven through mid off for a single. 5 runs and a wicket from the over. Cottrell's figures read 3-0-7-1. Wow. 28/2
  • 4.5 Full and outside off, driven straight to cover.
  • 4.4 FOUR! CARESSED! Outside off, on a length, Balbirnie punches this through the covers and the ball races away!
  • 4.3 Full and straight, watchfully blocked down the pitch.
  • 4.2 Full and around off, driven straight to mid off.
  • Gareth Delany walks in at number 4, replacing Stirling.
  • 4.1 OUT! CAUGHT! The dangerous Paul Stirling departs. Did he choose the wrong end? Because this short delivery was required to be punished and Stirling went for the pull. However, this particular end sees the wind coming towards the batsmen, which means he chose to hit against the wind. That did not allow him to get enough power. The ball dipped late onto Shimron Hetmyer at deep square leg. But the fielder did well to keep his eyes on the ball and dive to take the catch.
  • 3.6 Outside off, Paul backs away and throws his bat at it. Gets a bottom edge which goes on the bounce to short third man. A run taken. 23/1
  • 3.5 A fine yorker, around leg, dug out back to the bowler.
  • 3.4 The batsman has punched that ball through the off side.
  • 3.3 FOUR! Through mid on this time! Shepherd goes full again and Stirling punishes him gracefully again. This is driven through mid on. Result the same!
  • 3.2 FOUR! BRILLIANT! Full and outside off, Stirling comes forward and drives it. The ball is in the gap and wide of mid off for a boundary!
  • 3.1 Swing and a miss. Landed outside off. Stirling swings wildly and misses.
  • 2.6 Outside off, driven straight to mid off. 14/1
  • 2.5 The batsman has been struck on the thigh pad. They pick up a single. Leg bye signalled by the umpire.
  • 2.4 The batsman has punched the ball off the back foot.
  • 2.3 Full and outside off, driven straight to cover.
  • 2.2 Full and outside off, Balbirnie drives it straight to mid off.
  • 2.1 Full an around off, watchfully defended.
  • 1.6 SIX! Wow, innovative. Full and around off, Stirling gets down on one knee and laps it over fine leg. The ball clears the ropes! So, 11 runs and a wicket from the over. 12/1
  • 1.5 Full and around off, watchfully defended.
  • The rain has gone and the players are back out in the middle! Shepherd to finish his pending over.
  • We are hearing that the rain has stopped and the covers are coming off. Stay tuned for updates...
  • Along with Balbirnie, something else also arrives. RAIN. The heavens have opened up big time and this is a proper downpour. The umpires call for the covers and the players rush for cover as well.
  • Andy Balbirnie walks in at number 3, replacing O'Brien.
  • 1.4 OUT! CAUGHT! Shepherd has taken only 4 balls to strike in his first T20I. And it is a full toss. It is down the leg side, on the pads, O'Brien is early into the flick and gets a leading edge. In fact, replays seem to show that it has come from the back of the bat. The ball goes high in the air and Shimron Hetmyer takes a dolly at mid off. Shepherd cannot control his sheepish laugh. He is embarrassed. So no opening stand heroics tonight.
  • 1.3 FOUR! That is confidence for you. He has hit this against the wind, which means more power was needed. A short ball, outside off, O'Brien pulls this through square leg. Gets more height than distance but the ball lands in the gap and crosses the fence.
  • 1.2 A bit too straight, flicked through mid-wicket for a single.
  • 1.1 Full and around off, almost a yorker, pushed back to the bowler.
  • Debutant Romario Shepherd to share the new ball with Cottrell.
  • 0.6 Another one hits the pads as KOB fails to put it away. 1/0
  • 0.5 The batsman appears to have been struck on the thigh pad.
  • 0.4 LBW shout, but not out. Full and down the leg side, O'Brien looks to flick but misses. He is hit on the pads but the impact itself is outside leg.
  • 0.3 Full and around off, swinging in, watchfully defended.
  • 0.2 Down the leg side, O'Brien looks to flick but misses. A bit of a strange occurrence now. There is no appeal for a catch and O'Brien looks at the umpire for a wide signal. But it does not come. Did the ball hit the pad on its way?
  • 0.1 A loosener, length ball, down the leg side, flicked towards deep square leg for a single.
  • The players are out in the middle. Paul Stirling and Kevin O'Brien are the openers for the Irish. Sheldon Cottrell to start off proceedings for the game. Stirling to face. Here we go!
  • West Indies (Playing XI) - Lendl Simmons, Evin Lewis, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran(WK), Kieron Pollard(C), Sherfane Rutherford, Dwayne Bravo, Hayden Walsh, Khary Pierre, Sheldon Cottrell and Romario Shepherd (IN FOR KESRICK WILLIAMS).
  • Ireland (UNCHANGED Playing XI) - Paul Stirling, Kevin O Brien, Andrew Balbirnie(c), Gareth Delany, Harry Tector, Gary Wilson(w), George Dockrell, Simi Singh, Barry McCarthy, Joshua Little and Craig Young.
  • TOSS - Pollard has won the flip of the coin. WEST INDIES ELECT TO CHASE.
  • It was the Paul Stirling show in the first game as Ireland got off to a flier, but a close look will tell you that after he got out, the team collapsed badly. Does that mean that get him out, win the game? Ireland will hope it is not the case.
  • How many of you are surprised to see the series status as 1-0 in favour of Ireland? C'mon, c'mon, don't be shy, don't be shy, just admit it. You did not expect Ireland to win the first game, did you? But such days do come when it is just a player's day out or a team's. The bigger question now is - Can Ireland maintain that momentum from the first game? How will they prevent a strong Windies comeback?

  • That is all we have for you from this game. After 4-and-a-half hours and 21.2 overs, we stand looking at the series in the same fashion as we did before this game. 1-0 to Ireland. Will weather be kind to West Indies to try and avoid a series defeat? Can Ireland show that they deserve to win on merit by making it 2-0? Join us on Sunday, 19th January, 2020 at 6 pm local (2200 GMT) for the third and final T20I. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!
  • Ireland will be very happy with this. They cannot lose the series now and potentially stand a chance to even win this one, given that the final game is also at the same venue, with a similar weather forecast. Their batsmen struggled in testing conditions and will be relieved that they got away with this one.
  • It is surprising that Kieron Pollard is reluctant to bowl himself. Probably it is because he is the skipper. But here, he showed his worth, picking up a 4-fer. Sheldon Cottrell was excellent too, with 2/10 in 4 overs but it was the Pollard burst which pegged Ireland back. At one stage, they were aiming for 180.
  • West Indies will feel hard done by. They were just 16 balls away from levelling the series but weather did not allow them to do so. Their bowlers made the most of the difficult conditions for the batsmen in the first innings but sadly for them, their own batsmen could not get enough time in the middle.
  • 10 pm local (0200 GMT) - Unfortunately, that is it. The two captains shake hands and the MATCH HAS BEEN ABANDONED. The game might well have resumed but just when the covers were removed after the previous shower, along came another spray and that ruined the bowlers' runups. That was the final nail in the coffin.
  • 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.
  • 2.1 Full and around off, watchfully defended.
  • Barry McCarthy into the attack.
  • 1.6 Around middle, worked through mid-wicket for a couple. 16/1
  • 1.5 Full and around middle, pushed back to the bowler.
  • 1.4 The batsman shows the full face of the bat and defends the ball off the back foot.
  • 1.3 Around middle, pushed through mid-wicket for a single.
  • 1.2 The batsman flicks it away with a wristy shot. Two runs added to the total.
  • 1.1 Around middle and leg, helped towards square leg.
  • Simi Singh to bowl from the other end.
  • 0.6 On middle, pushed down to long on for a single. 11 runs and a wicket from the over. 11/1
  • Shimron Hetmyer comes in at number 3, replacing Simmons.
  • 0.5 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.
  • 0.4 FOUR! Up and over! Full and outside off, Simmons comes forward and belts it over mid off. One bounce and into the fence.
  • 0.3 Short again, down the leg side, Lendl looks to pull but misses and is hit on the pads.
  • 0.2 SIX! BLUDGEONED! The West Indies' innings takes off in style. Short and around leg stump, Simmons goes back and pulls it over square leg!
  • 0.1 That ball has struck the batsman on the thigh pad.
  • We are back! Lendl Simmons and Evin Lewis are the openers for the Windies. Paul Stirling to bowl the opening over. Simmons on strike.
