TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 10.40)208/7
Fall of wickets: 1-154 (Kevin O'Brien, 12.3 ov), 2-156 (Paul Stirling, 13.2 ov), 3-162 (Andy Balbirnie, 15.2 ov), 4-164 (Harry Tector, 15.4 ov), 5-199 (Gareth Delany, 18.3 ov), 6-208 (Gary Wilson, 19.5 ov), 7-208 (Simi Singh, 19.6 ov)
19.5 to GC Wilson, gone. This one's on middle stump, length ball aiming to hit the top of middle, and Wilson swings across the line and misses. 208/6
19.6 to Simi Singh, and Cottrell finishes with two wickets in two balls. Full, pitched right up at Simi's feet. Flicks it and times it very well. Almost hits it all the way for six, but he finds Lewis in the way, moving to his left from deep backward square leg. The momentum nearly causes him to step over the rope, but he manages to steady himself inches from the rope. 208/7
15.2 to A Balbirnie, gone, one follows another follows another. Flat length ball speared into the pitch, outside off. Looks to make room and hit over the covers, but he ends up too far from the ball as this spins away sharply, and he slices it in the air, off the outside half of the bat, straight to the man at short third man. 162/3
15.4 to HT Tector, another. Again, quite deliberately short and wide, speared flat into the pitch, using that sweeper as a defensive fielder to keep Ireland down to singles. He was happy giving away the single, but Tector cuts in the air, and not far enough to the right of backward point, who completes a fairly simple catch. 164/4
12.3 to KJ O'Brien, bowled him. This has been an excellent over from Bravo, a demonstration of what he brings to the T20 table. He's known for the slower balls, but they didn't work in his first over, and he's gone full pace for the first three balls of this over, all of them in and around the blockhole. This ball is the best of the lot, dipping late, under the bat of O'Brien, and crashing into off stump. 154/1
18.3 to GJ Delany, bowled him. What a comeback this has been for Bravo. Again that dipping off-stump yorker, and Delany jams his bat down in a desperate hurry but can't keep it out. There's a bit of late swerve in too, to help it past the inside edge. 199/5
13.2 to PR Stirling, got him, and Stirling falls short of a century. Tossed up slow, and Stirling, who's played the slog-sweep brilliantly all day, goes too early at this one, top-edges it, and offers a simple catch to the man at deep midwicket. The end of an outstanding innings from the Ireland opener. 156/2

TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 10.20)204/7
Fall of wickets: 1-37 (Lendl Simmons, 3.3 ov), 2-93 (Evin Lewis, 8.6 ov), 3-114 (Shimron Hetmyer, 10.6 ov), 4-150 (Kieron Pollard, 14.2 ov), 5-194 (Nicholas Pooran, 18.2 ov), 6-196 (Sherfane Rutherford, 19.1 ov), 7-204 (Dwayne Bravo, 19.5 ov)
14.2 to KA Pollard, got him. Brave call to bowl Simi at Pollard, but it's paid off. Both these balls seem to have straightened off the pitch, and replays show this one - and probably the first ball too - was a legbreak. A skiddy, back-of-a-length legbreak straightening from leg stump, and Pollard is a little unbalanced as he tries to get his front leg out of the way and launch it over long-on. Ends up skewing it high off the outer half of the bat, and long-on moves a few steps to his left and takes a good catch. 150/4
3.3 to LMP Simmons, and the change of angle pays immediate dividends, but it needs a lot of help from George Dockrell, who takes a sensational diving catch after running to his right from deep point. Length ball angling into off stump, and Simmons, clearing his front leg, ends up slicing over the covers rather than lofting over mid-off as intended. The cover fielder runs back, and he's also in Dockrell's line of sight as he sprints to his right on the boundary, but he has eyes only for one thing, the ball, and he grabs it with both hands while falling to his right. 37/1
19.1 to SE Rutherford, The field was set for a wide line, but he bowls this fairly close to off stump, back of a length. It wasn't necessarily a great delivery, but Rutherford didn't quite middle his leg-side slog. Clears his front leg, connects only halfway cleanly, and long-on, moving to his left, takes a fairly straightforward catch. 196/6
19.5 to DJ Bravo, Back of a length, angling into off stump, and Little has got his man! Bravo looks to whip over deep midwicket, hits it reasonably well, but not well enough, and Delany takes the catch a few yards in front of the rope. 204/7
8.6 to E Lewis, slower length ball on leg stump, makes a lot of room to carve over the covers, and West Indies lose another wicket to an excellent running catch on the boundary. This time it's Tector sprinting left from deep point, grabbing it safely with both hands, and completing his effort with a tumble. 93/2
18.2 to N Pooran, shortish on leg stump, here's another late twist. Opens up for a half-sweep, half-pull, but he hits it in the air and too close to the man at deep backward square leg. 194/5
10.6 to SO Hetmyer, oh no. He nearly gave away his wicket attempting the same shot a couple of balls ago. Dockrell floats it up in that wide line again, inviting him to reach out and take on long-off. Goes for it again, doesn't catch it as well as he'd like, and this time Balbirnie is in position to move towards the ball and complete the low catch with a dive forward and to his right. 114/3
