All-round Sammy steers West Indies home

Ravi Rampaul and Darren Sammy ensured West Indies overcame the absence of Chris Gayle and a stuttering batting display as they overpowered Ireland

Scorecard summary
West Indies138/9(20 overs)
Ireland68(16.4 overs)

West Indies have finished with a 70-run win that could be enough to see them through to the Super Eights. Ireland will be incredibly disappointed with their batting effort, all out for 68. And it's fair to assume Darren Sammy will be the Man of the Match, he was in everything today - his 30 was the top score of the match, he took 3 for 8 and a world record four catches. All the West Indies bowlers played their part. George Dockrell showed something with the ball for Ireland, but there wasn't much else for them to cheer today. They'll have to beat England on Tuesday to have any chance of progressing.

"We were right in it at half time, but it was just disappointing with the bat," William Porterfield says. "We lost three wickets early, which put us right on the back foot."

"I had faith in the lower order, I knew once we got over 130 it would be difficult to chase," Dwayne Bravo says. "Chris will be in for the next game and I can't wait for him to be back."

That's it for today from Providence, where earlier in the day New Zealand beat Sri Lanka in a thriller. Don't forget to read the bulletin and Andrew McGlashan's post-match analysis over the next couple of hours. The next game is Afghanistan v India in St Lucia tomorrow, and it's an early start - 9.30am local time. Join us for that match - until then, goodbye.

Here comes George Dockrell, whose main job is to make sure Ireland don't finish with the lowest ever total in a completed Twenty20 international innings. Kenya's 67 is the record.
