Ireland score consolation win

Ireland 179 (N O'Brien 44, Johnson 3-25) beat Windward Islands 115 (Dockrell 3-14) by 64 runs

Ireland's slow bowlers squeezed the life out of Windward Islands' chase to secure a 64-run victory in a low-scoring contest at Queen's Park Oval. George Dockrell, Andy McBrine and Paul Stirling bowled 22 overs of spin, out of the 35 Ireland needed to dismiss their opponents, and took 4 for 50.

Only one Windward batsman - opener Tyrone Theophile - made it past 20 in the chase of 179 and they collapsed from 86 for 4 to 115 all out. Dockrell finished with 3 for 14 in seven overs.

Ireland had also found it hard after choosing to bat. They lost wickets at regular intervals and, though their batsmen from Nos. 2 to 8 made it into double figures, Niall O'Brien (44) and Stuart Thompson (32) were the only ones to get past 20. They were able to convert a score of 98 for 5 to 179 in 48.3 overs. Delorn Johnson claimed 3 for 25 for Windward Islands.
