A much-improved bowling performance from the first match against Australia and West Indies will be happy with chasing 130. No Ireland batsman was able to push on, though seven made it into double figures, and they will have to field like Celtic tigers if they're to pull off a major upset and reach the Super Eights. Gnasher will here to tell you if they can do it in about 10 minutes' time. Ta ra

17.2

tossed up full outside off and this time Jones carts the ball over wide long-on, a big swing of the bat and that goes a long way

Narine to Jones, no run

length ball, the doosra, Jones waits and pushes to cover

Narine to bowl his final over, two to go and Ireland need to get a bounce on

"Like all 'neutrals', I also usually support the weaker team; but of all the full members, West Indies is the only team I don't want to see an upset against," says Kamran. "It's been so long since we've seen a good West Indian team and I think they deserve to go further in the tournament."

16.1
W
Rampaul to K O'Brien, OUT

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

Kevin O'Brien b Rampaul 13 (15b 0x4 1x6 19m) SR: 86.66

Rampaul comes on in place of Edwards...

Gayle to Johnston, SIX runs

he gets under this one, not quite the yorker Gayle was searching for and Johnston blams it high over wide long-on - Ireland will probably need a few more of those to make this interesting
