  • So, 139 to chase for the hosts. Will they be able to chase it down? They have a strong batting line-up and they will be favourites to do. Can Ireland make a match of this and win the series? Join us in a while to find out.
  • Ireland, on the other hand, would be disappointed with their effort. They started well, reached 50 in no time but after the rain interruption, all things fell apart and they eventually collapsed for 138. Gary Wilson played a poor shot and they never recovered from that. A couple of run outs did not help their cause and they have ended up with a below par score. Only Kevin O'Brien could trouble the bowlers as he finished with a 18-ball 36.
  • Woah! What a brilliant bowling performance from West Indies! They did not start off all that well as Kevin O'Brien was going all guns blazing in the Powerplay. Ireland reached 50 in just the 4th over and were looking set for a big score but the rain break caused them to lose momentum. After the break, West Indies ripped apart the Irishmen with slower balls . They were helped by the batters as well courtesy some poor running and poor shots. Pollard was the pick of the bowlers as he used his cutters really well while Bravo picked up three as well. Romario Shepherd was disappointing though.
  • 19.1 OUT! CAUGHT BEHIND! Closes the innings in style! Slower delivery on off, Little is early into his pull and only manages to get a top edge. The ball goes up in the air and Pooran behind the stumps settles himself and takes a simple catch. IRELAND ARE BOWLED OUT FOR 138.

Short of a length ball on middle, Singh pulls it to deep square leg and takes off for a single. Cottrell comes across and throws it to the keeper. He hits the stumps direct. The umpire gives it not out and the ball rolls to the off side. Now the replays show that Adair was out of his crease when the ball hits the stumps. Pollard is not happy and asks the umpire to upstairs. The replays roll in and Adair is just out of his crease.

Full delivery on middle, Stirling looks to heave it to the leg side but misses to get hit on the pads. Bravo appeals and after thinking for a while, gives it out. Stirling goes for the review. Looks like it is a waste of a review though. The Ultra Edge rolls in and there is no bat on it.

  • Toss - West Indies have won the toss and they choose to field first.
  • Ireland on the verge of winning a T20I series against a top-heavy T20I side. Yes, that's what can happen if the Irish win this game or if rain plays spoilsport. Ireland were prolific in the first game while some heavy showers in the second helped them keep their lead. West Indies, on the other hand, were on course to level the series in the second T20I but that did not materialize and now would be looking for a dominating performance so that they can at least level the series. There is rain forecast for this game as well. Let's hope that it stays away and we have a cracker of a game. Will West Indies level it up or will the Irish surprise the calypso Kings? Toss and team updates in a while.

  • West Indies skipper, Kieron Pollard says, he is pleased with how they pulled things back, it is a small ground and it is not easy to contain but they did well. He feels they are on track and doing well at the moment, they are showing good intensity but they need to keep going. Mentions Simmons is a joy to watch when he is in that mood, for a little man he can hit them really long but he needs to be consistent and always give us good starts. Further adds, the batting throughout has been very consistent, the bowling though has to be tight.
  • Ireland skipper, Andy Balbirnie, says they were under par, they were outclassed in all the departments today. States the manner of the dismissals were very soft and it is very disappointing, however, they can take positives from drawing a series against the Windies. Ends by saying there are a few players who impressed and he hopes the others can learn too.
  • Man of the Series, Kieron Pollard, says the team wanted him to do a job with the ball, you need to come out of your comfort zone and deliver and he did so. States they need to bowl better with the new ball, they can't let the teams get off to fliers which could be dangerous against better oppositions. Mentions he uses his experience in his bowling and that is why he is doing well. He hopes the younger guys can also learn from the experience.
  • MAN OF THE MATCH, Lendl Simmons, says it was a good surface, after the rainfall, it was sliding onto the bat. States his role in this team is to go hard in the Powerplay and it is just about knowing your game now.

Ends by saying he is looking ahead for the T20 World Cup and they are preparing for that.
  • Credit though has to be given to the Windies bowlers! They were the one who set this victory up. They pulled things back outstandingly after O'Brien and Stirling got Ireland off to a flier. They did really well to pick up wickets at regular intervals and restrict Ireland to a below par score which they easily chased.
  • Chasing 139, one partnership is all you need and the Windies openers delivered. The two added 133 with Simmons being the mainstay and Lewis playing second fiddle.
