    0.1 bowled him, Porterfield has gone first ball again! Just as against Australia, Ireland have lost their captain to the opening delivery of the match. Edwards pitched the ball up, it swung back through the gate, via the toe of the boot, and neatly splayed the stumps. When asked at the toss if he was going to hook the first ball, Porterfield said he was going to leave it ... which is pretty much what happened 0/1
    6.2 miscued pull and Ireland are three down! Stirling tried to cart the ball through the leg side, it bounced on him a little more than his expected and looped tamely to midwicket 37/3

    5.3 bowled him round the legs, Narine strikes! Joyce had twice played and missed, this was further down the leg side and the batsman went to sweep, expecting turn again, the ball went straight on and clattered into leg stump 33/2

    15.1 bowled him, sneaked one through! Gayle is doing the funky chicken again! He went round the wicket, fired in what was effectively a flat yorker, O'Brien didn't get his bat down in time and the off pole was rattled 96/5
    11.4 pushed through, arm ball and there's a little nick to the keeper! Wilson was trying to drive and the ball just skidded through and scraped the outside edge. Gayle pops his collar and busts a groove in celebration 70/4
    16.1 shuffles across, looking to go big on the leg side ... and Rampaul knocks over his off stump! The batsman telegraphed his intention but Rampaul was good enough not to be flustered, just went full and straight and knocked over Ireland's King Louis, the big-swinging O'Brien 107/6

Match Notes

  • Ireland, you will be back

    Ireland leave the tournament soggy and sick. In their must win game, they never bowled a ball. Ireland cricket has had far better tournaments than this

  • Rain pain for Ireland again

    West Indies qualified for the Super Eights of the World T20 after rain prevented a second innings in their key game against Ireland

  • Maturing Narine stays one step ahead

    Sunil Narine didn't rely on mystery to defeat Ed Joyce, nor even on big turn. He cornered the batsman into surrendering his wicket - a hallmark of a maturing spinner.

  • Johnston hits out at lack of fixtures

    Trent Johnston has marked what could be his farewell match in a major tournament by condemning the reluctance of Bangladesh and Zimbabwe to play them and put at risk their international status.
