6.20pm That's all from us today. A big, big day in the lives of Shai Hope and especially John Campbell, who came into this match without a single hundred in not just ODI but also List A cricket. We hope you enjoyed our coverage. Until next time, good night!

Jason Holder: "Good day at the office. We put up a really good total, Shai and John led the way. Good to see two youngsters leading the way. Shannon's got the pace, the aggression. We just want to use it as much as possible. What worked for us as well was new-ball wickets. It's encouraging to get some good reserve players coming up. Hopefully guys like John, Shane Dowrich and Roston Chase, who we've got in our squad, can keep putting in good performances."

William Porterfield: "Credit to the two lads. Once they got the partnership going, this can become a very quick-scoring ground. It's going to be a learning curve for the bowlers. You're playing against really good players. As long as you learn from that, that's all you can ask for."

John Campbell is the Player of the Match. "I'm just looking at this as another opportunity for me to put big scores on the board," he says. No big interviews today, it looks like.

Shai Hope: "[On John Campbell not being part of the World Cup squad] It's nice to see the guys putting in the hard work, putting the performances behind their names. You never know what could happen."

6.02pm A massive win for West Indies - the margin is 196 runs. Ireland were never going to get to 382, especially after losing three early wickets. There were a couple of decent partnerships around Kevin O'Brien's half-century, but once he went there was little left in the tank. Gabriel finishes with three wickets, and Nurse with four.

The most significant events of this match all occurred in the first innings, of course. Shai Hope and John Campbell rewrote the ODI record for the first wicket, putting on 365, and showed off the depth of batting resources that West Indies currently seem to have.

Nurse to Little, OUT

and that's that. Shuffles across before stretching out to sweep, and he ends up getting too far across, and the ball turns past him and crashes into the exposed stumps

Nurse to Little, no run

yikes. He's smashed Murtagh's elbow at the other end! Thankfully he's left-handed an therefore wearing an arm guard on his right arm. Down the track, gets close to the pitch of it, and smacks it hard and flat

Josh Little is the last man in for Ireland.

Nurse to McCarthy, OUT

gone! Looks to step out again and Nurse deceives him with a beaut. Nicely flighted, dips shorter than McCarthy expects as he lunges at the drive, and it grips and turns between bat and pad to present Hope with the easiest of stumpings

Anon06: "With WI batting clicking and their batsmen in form, all attention should be toward their bowlers. It has let then down numerous times over the last couple of years. Throughout this triseries, they should aim to restrict the opponent to under 250, not just bowl to win."
