Right then, that about ends our live coverage of this game. Here's hoping Ireland don't keep getting tagged with the other Associates, who are clearly a cut below them in class and depth. Meanwhile, the action continues unabated from Chittagong, where England have closed in for an under-par score. Could be an interesting chase from Bangladesh. Do tune in for it. On behalf of Sid Talya, Sid Ravi and the rest of the gang, this is Nitin Sundar signing off. Cheers!

Man of the Match easily goes to KP, West Indies version. "This innings is for the people who have supported me. Good game for us, important to keep the momentum going. What's been said about me [20 over specialist], thats just history for me, I go out there and do my best."

Sammy: "We bowled where we wanted to and that got us the victory. Partnerships do form, thats the nature of the game, and we did well to stick to the basics. It was a tough thing for us when Gayle got injured, and it was great the way Russell stood up, he has a good future."

Porterfield: "We will be speaking to the match referee before making any comments on that controversial decision. We batted, bowled and field pretty well, especially considering we missed Trent as well today. Pollard strike the ball pretty clean, it was a good innings and it got them some good momentum. We got nothing to lose, need to continue playing freely."

Devon Smith: "Very satisfied with my show today. Hope the 100 is the first of many to come. Someone had to play the sheet anchor role in Gayle's absence and I did that."

Jason: "Should be now be called Ashocker De Silva?"

Someone is as frustrated as the Irish. Two-faced Riddler: "Thank You for NEVER ever publishing my comments. So much for waking up at 5am to see your commentary"

James: "Wouldn't you just love to see Roach, Taylor and Edwards in harness together for West Indies? Really exciting pace bowling." Can't wait for that to happen.

A good win this for West Indies, they played their cards close to the chest, and exploded while batting through Pollard. Ireland missed a trick, by not trying Dockrell against Pollard - he is a nervy starter against spin. Pollard's blast-fest made all the difference in the end. Ireland were always up against it, but Joyce and Wilson played like heroes to get them close. And then, that umpiring call happened... West Indies are up to 6 points, and second in the Group B table. India 7, WI 6, England 5, SA 4 - SA have a game in their hand, mind you.

Benn to Dockrell, OUT, all over, after all those yorkers, Benn has got a wicket with orthodox left-arm spin. Tossed up delicately on middle and off, allowing it to dip on Dockrell who reaches out and swipes. He doesn't make contact as the ball grips and breaks past him. Off stump is disturbed on the way. Ireland are bowled out.
