So Ireland Won the matches by 9 wickets against the West Indies
It’s a different pitch with an 82-meter straight down the ground border. The playing surface is attractive, albeit having some dryness and fractures. According to Carlos Brathwaite, this pitch will benefit spinners.
Ireland Team Captain Andrew Balberney:
Last year at the same stage we suffered a disappointing loss. We think a lot and a lot has changed back home. There was a new coach and some things we wanted to do as a team, the way we wanted to play. Losing the first match and then coming back and beating the two-time champions in a must-win game… couldn’t be more proud. The emotional ending of the game is good, but we are happy as a group. A lot of things can go wrong in your day in T20 cricket.
We can play our next game here, we have played three games here and it can be to our advantage. We want to face the best. It was a really good part. He (Sterling) is one of the best speculators we have ever had. The way he played today, made it easy for me, and the way I played made it easy for him. The way Lorcan came in and played it freely was great. It was a real all-around performance. The bowling was great, and the wicket was good. A day to be proud to be Irish.
Player of the match Gareth Delaney:
It’s a great day for us, we wanted to get through the streak, and the way we did it was great. Our bowling coach (Nathan Hertz) came up with a plan, and we tried to keep it simple. It’s a dream come true for us, and we’re happy to be honest. Camour’s knock the other day (against Scotland), along with Dockerell’s contribution, allowed us to get into that position.
The two experienced openers, who had not been fired in the first two games, fired their team. It was carnage on both sides with Sterling and Balbirnie hitting the limit for fun and bringing the demand rate under 6 RPO inside the powerplay. Aqeel Hussain broke the opening partnership by removing the Ireland skipper in the eighth over, but it hardly had an effect on Ireland.
Tucker joined Sterling and the pair kept up the pace. West Indies looked clueless as they were clinically chased away from Ireland. The veteran – Sterling – scored his half-century in the T20I and remained unbeaten till the end as he led his team home with a 15-ball tussle. Stick to presentations
West Indies Team Nicolas Brann:
It’s tough, we didn’t play well at all in this tournament. At a really good hitting level, to make 145, it’s a really tough task for bowlers. This was going to be a challenge. Congratulations to Ireland, they hit brilliantly and bowled the ball very well today. There are a lot of positives, Jason is bowling well, King is really good, and Joseph is hitting the ball for us. This is a learning experience for us. We have let down our fans and ourselves. Of course, it hurts. I disappointed my colleagues with my performance.
