Current Form West Indies and Ireland:
West Indies have defeated Ireland by 24 runs in the first ODI of the Ireland tour of West Indies, 2022.
Ireland won the toss and elected to field first. West Indies could not get off to an ideal start as they lost 4 wickets at a total of 62 runs. The dismissed batsmen included West Indies star Nicholas Pooran, Justin Greaves, Shai Hope and Roston Chase. West Indies looked in all sorts of trouble at that point. This is when the skipper Kieron Pollard joined hands with Sharmarh Brooks and stitched a partnership of 155 runs for the 5th wicket. This partnership took West Indies out of the doomed picture and set them sailing for a bigger total.
Kieron Pollard made 69 off 66 balls while Sharmarh Brooks scored 93 off just 89 balls. At the back of these phenomenal knocks, West Indies got to a respectful total of 269 before being bowled out in the 49th over.
Chasing a huge target of 269, Ireland lost their key batter William Porterfield in the 2nd over for a duck. Post his dismissal, skipper Andrew Balbirnie along with Andy McBrine played brilliantly to move the scoreboard forward without losing any further wicket. McBrine was retired hurt after making 34 runs. He was replaced by Harry Tector at the crease who scored a flamboyant 53 off 68 balls.
Andrew Balbirnie was dismissed for 71 in the 37th over after which the match turned around completely. The lower middle order of Ireland side could not flex their muscles on time as Ireland were left with too many runs to get in short time. Eventually, Ireland were bowled out for 245 in the 50th over, losing the match by 24 runs. Alzarri Joseph picked up 3 wickets for 55 runs in his spell.
