    9.5 another one gone - plucked in the covers! Driven firmly but in the air and Evin Lewis was the man at extra cover, plunging to his right to hold a good catch! Thomas rumbles in to good effect once again, both openers back in the hutch now 33/2
    7.2 short ball and Stirling nicks a pull to the keeper! Backing away again and seemed done by the ball not arriving as he expected, just dipped a touch as he swung hard to leg and got a feather on it - finger went up straight away 22/1
    37.4 soft dismissal! Flighted outside off from Walsh, Balbirnie wasn't to the pitch as the ball bit and left his attempted cover drive, and Chase at point stooped low to end a doughty innings. But is it doughty enough? 153/6
    17.2 round the wicket, goes to sweep a full ball... hit on the pads and given! Straightening a touch, Chase liked it and the only question was whether he might have got some bat or glove on it. But there's no review, Porterfield turns and heads for the changing rooms. Hit him just above the ankle in front of middle and off, quite a straightforward decision. West Indies break through again 51/3
    25.3 inside-out, lofted high out to deep extra cover, and that's a simple take on the edge of the rope! KOB was stretching for the stroke, never quite to the pitch, and Pooran sauntered in for a very big scalp! 88/4
    30.4 stunning bowling! Straight through the gate as Walsh slips in the googly, on a perfect length, outside off, skimming in past the inside-edge of a hard-handed drive, and clipping the outside of off stump! That's a collector's item, and it ends a half-formed fightback. The umpires check that the ball, not the keeper's gloves dislodged the bails. They were every bit as bamboozled as the batsman! 111/5
    39.5 big appeal and up goes the finger! It was surely hitting the stumps but did it pitch outside leg? We are going to a review...yep, it pitched on leg, and was actually hitting the leg bail according to DRS... another big scalp as Singh falls 158/7
    41.2 a slap across the line, a massive top-edge, another one bites the dust! Adair knew he was toast the moment he played the stroke, an ambitious fetch from outside off. Snow on the ball as it plops into short square leg's hands. Walsh has four, with a golden opportunity for a five-for! 163/8

    46.5 heaved out to the deep ... has he got hold of it.... no, he hasn't! King at wide long-on back-pedals on the edge of the rope, plucks the ball to his chest, and a battling cameo comes to an end. McCarthy did at least hang around to take Ireland's innings deep 188/9
    49.1 pounded off a good length, down the ground, but not properly tonked... Keemo Paul, the sub fielder, swoops round from mid-off, calls for it early, avoids a collision with Roston Chase, and ends the innings for 203... 203/10

    5.2 pitched up, zeroing in on the stumps until it smacks the front pad... given! Hope chats to his partner and then reviews, though that looked pretty plumb unless he hit it (which he didn't from his initial reaction). Yep, that's bulldozing middle and leg, up goes Palliyaguruge's finger again! McCarthy gives the men in green something to celebrate with the opening wicket 29/1
    34.5 honked down the ground, looking to finish in style... but nope, Lewis has got a spiralling leading edge, and KOB at deep cover plucks the catch 192/4
    8.6 gottim, nicked to the keeper! Ambris falls looking to cut, and Ireland have a second wicket in the Powerplay! Well taken by Lorcan Tucker, followed it into the hands nicely. Hetmyer's replacement fails to capitalise, West Indies just betraying a few nerves 54/2
    22.3 back of a length, chopped to the keeper! Well done Ireland, they needed the wicket, and McBrine has obliged. King guilty of falling backwards in his cut shot instead of sending his weight through the ball, and a slender edge nestles in Tucker's gloves! 129/3

    35.3 flashed down the ground and straight to long-on! Ireland putting some unexpected gloss on the scoreline as Shepherd holes out looking for the glory shot. A good take inside the rope from Adair, that was travelling hard 193/5
