Default England and Ireland in the West Indies

Having taking a beating at the hands of Australia recently, a battered England heads to the Caribbean to engage in a series with West Indies and their Neighbors Ireland. Ireland, on the other hand will be out there looking for glory and also pull off some upsets, they are the fast improving associate team, who will want to strike when it matters. West Indies will look to correct their flaws from their recent tours in India and New Zealand.

Ireland should win this ... they need 44 off 43 balls. I don't remember any instance of a reigning world champion losing a match to an Associate at home.

22 off 26 needed and 6 wickets in hand. Narine's last over.

It's not anybody's game, it's Ireland's game. They have to do something unexpected to lose it.

West Indies are surely rusty. This will be a big upset. Fingers-Crossed.

Congrats Ireland , proving to be quite a handful to teams of late. I certainly believe that they are a more composed unit than our Bangladesh. Just have to wait for the next match to find out if this was a fluke.

I think Ireland's determination and mental toughness will take them far. When they will make their Test Debut, they'll win more matches compared to Bangladesh. The world is tired of seeing Bangladesh playing Test Cricket. It pleases me to see Ireland play like this.

It was A spirited(lazy) performance by both teams. Can't believe a total under 100 cannot be chased in 20 Overs. Congratulations to the West Indies Team.

SERIES:
====================
WEST INDIES: WON--1, LOST--1
IRELAND: WON--1, LOST--1.
