However, it has not been smooth sailing for Ireland as injuries and Covis cases led to the postponement and rescheduling of the fixtures after the very first game. As many as five cases of Covid were reported from the Irish camp, and thus the last two games were rescheduled for effective containment of the spread of the disease.

The mighty West Indies started the series with a comfortable victory as they defeated Ireland by 24 runs. Scintillating batting performances from Sharmarh Brooks (93) and skipper Kieron Pollard (69) led the West Indies to register a score of 269 on the board. For the Irish bowling side, Mark Adair and Craig Young bagged 3 wickets each to restrict West Indies to a fairly moderate chasing score.

However, a batting collapse accompanied by a disciplined bowling and fielding performance turned the momentum for the Windies. Desperate attempts by Irish skipper Andrew Balbirnie (71) and Harry Tector (53) proved insufficient as their side fell short by 24 runs.

However, Covid struck and it derailed West Indies’ winning momentum as the 2nd ODI was postponed by five days. The second ODI proved to be quite a dramatic game as it marked the comeback of the Irish.

Unlike the first ODI, the Windies were unable to register a strong batting performance and ultimately ended their innings by registering a mere score of 229 with Romario Shepherd (50) and Odean Smith (46) scoring the highest consecutive runs for the team. With a few of their players missing along with their skipper Andrew Balbirnie, the Irish team was determined to win the game.


Ireland began the game strongly, however, the play was halted due to rain. A new revised target owing to the Duckworth-Lewis method was set that saw Ireland chase 168 runs. Under the revised score, Ireland had to score just 11 runs off 28 deliveries which they achieved with relative ease. Harry Tector remained unbeaten at 54 alongside a stellar batting and bowling performance from Andy McBrine.
