  West Indies innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal DR Smith c Mooney b KJ O'Brien 18 29 24 3 0 75.00
7.3 73.0 mph, and the move has come off for Porterfield as Kevin pitches one up just outside off which Dwayne goes after as he lofts O'Brien straight into the clutches of long on, who takes it comfortably. Really a poor shot given the fielder in the deep 30/1
View dismissal CH Gayle c KJ O'Brien b Dockrell 36 79 65 3 1 55.38
21.2 48.4 mph, the pressure finally gets to Gayle as he looks to go big over cow corner, but doesn't quite get a hold of this one as he ends up finding the fielder before the rope, who takes a comfortable catch. Big, big breakthrough for Ireland, and Gayle has to go after his 36 78/3
View dismissal DM Bravo run out (McBrine) 0 4 0 0 0 -
7.6 KJ O'Brien to Gayle, gets a leading edge from this leg-stump line delivery that was just back of a length. This ends up squirting away to the point fielder, who runs to his left before collecting to throw down the striker's ends stumps, with Darren woefully short of his ground. Really ignominious way to go as he leaves without even facing a ball! 31/2
View dismissal MN Samuels lbw b Dockrell 21 49 41 1 1 51.21
21.4 51.5 mph, Dockrell on fire at Nelson! Samuels is struck in line as he hangs on the back foot, with the umpire, after giving some thought, deciding he had to go. Samuels straight away reviews. Replays confirm that this was indeed hitting in line as he gets all three reds, so Samuels has to go. Big, big wicket for Ireland as Dockrell has not only picked up Gayle, but Samuels too as well 78/4
View dismissal D Ramdin lbw b Dockrell 1 12 6 0 0 16.66
23.3 Ramdin plays all around this length delivery on and around off as he gets through the sweep too early, with this one crashing into the pads. The umpire doesn't hesitate to give this one out, and with no more reviews on offer, he has to go. West Indies in serious trouble as they wobble on 87 for 5 87/5
View dismissal LMP Simmons c Dockrell b Sorensen 102 124 84 9 5 121.42
49.5 77.4 mph, looking to slice high over cover, with Dockrell able to get under it to complete a forward, diving catch. Simmons trudges off the field, raising his blade to acknowledge the polite applause around Nelson. Has really done the trick for his team today 302/7
View dismissal DJG Sammy c Dockrell b Mooney 89 88 67 9 4 132.83
44.4 62.5 mph, and Sammy's search for that elusive ODI ton will have to wait for another day. Is not at all in control of this pull through midwicket, with this one coming off the top-edge before flying to the man in the deep, who takes the catch comfortably. The Nelson contingent rise to applaud a special knock 241/6

View dismissal WTS Porterfield* c †Ramdin b Gayle 23 57 43 1 1 53.48
13.3 68.9 mph, and Porterfield has to go as he looked to get on with it, going after this slightly wide delivery on a flatter trajectory, which he ends up getting a bottom-edge to which Ramdin is able to get his fingers under and complete the take. Porterfield goes for 23 71/1
View dismissal PR Stirling c †Ramdin b Samuels 92 115 84 9 3 109.52
27.5 55.4 mph, and in the most nonchalant fashion, Stirling departs the Saxton after offering an outside edge to this one spinning across him, with Ramdin able to complete the take after it took the edge. Really has been a wonderful innings to set the platform for Ireland in this chase 177/2
View dismissal EC Joyce c Bravo b Taylor 84 111 67 10 2 125.37
39.2 89.1 mph, and the show must come to a close as Joyce's spirited 84 comes to an end after he holes out to deep cover in an attempt to find the boundary rope. Really has been a wonderful knock to add to the one earlier from the opener, Paul Stirling. The Saxton give him a resounding send-off as he raises the bat to acknowledge the cheers 273/3
NJ O'Brien not out 79 90 60 11 0 131.66
View dismissal A Balbirnie c Bravo b Taylor 9 13 9 2 0 100.00
41.3 82.2 mph, shortish length which invites Andy to have a go as he pulls this straight to deep midwicket, who takes it comfortably. What is key here, is the lack of celebration or acknowledgment on the behalf of the West Indies' players. They look quite demoralised out there 285/4
View dismissal GC Wilson c Gayle b Taylor 1 12 6 0 0 16.66
43.5 84.5 mph, and the pressure does the trick as West Indies snag a late one here, getting Wilson to spoon this fuller delivery straight to short mid-off 290/5
View dismissal KJ O'Brien run out (Smith/Roach) 0 3 1 0 0 0.00
44.1 Roach to NJ O'Brien, steers this one past point towards the deep. Kevin chugs hard to try and get to the non-strikers when they return for the second, but he is well short of his ground. Doesn't even bother to wait for the umpire's call as he walks back to the pavilion. Ireland in a spot of bother here now as the innings heads towards its denouement 291/6
