Harsha: "Much Needed Victory for West Indies".... Yes Harsha, they had lost 5 in a row before today, so a much needed win.

So this will remain as the historic day that was not, Ireland will have to wait for the one-off ODI to win a series against a Test playing nation.

Darren Sammy is the man of the match and Alex Cusack has been picked as the man of the series.

The last game of the tour is on Sunday, be sure to join us then. Good night and good luck.
