Second Twenty20 international, Warner Park, St Kitts:
Ireland 147-9 (20 overs): G Delany 44, Balbirnie 36; Pollard 4-25
West Indies 16-1 (2.1 overs)
No result

The second Twenty20 match between West Indies and Ireland was curtailed in St Kitts with the tourists remaining 1-0 up in the series.

Gareth Delany’s impressive 44 from 31 balls, including four successive sixes, helped the Irish to a below-par 147-9.

Rain delays at Warner Park led to the Windies being set a DLS target of 152 from 19 overs, but at 16-1 the weather forced the game to be abandoned.

The final T20 will be played at the same venue later on Sunday (22:00 GMT).

West Indies elected to field and at 23-2 they had Ireland in trouble before captain Andrew Balbirnie (36) and Delany steadied the innings.

Delany’s four sixes in a row off spinner Hayden Walsh included a massive hit over the grandstand and out of the ground.

Windies captain Kieron Pollard removed Delany and took an impressive 4-25 with the Irish losing seven wickets for just 52 runs from the final nine overs.

Paul Stirling struck in the first over to dismiss Lendl Simmons but the rain came in again and this time it ended the match.
