Rain had the final say in St. Kitts when West Indies were 16-1 in 2.2 overs, chasing a DLS-adjusted target of 152 against Ireland in the second T20I. The no result means Ireland now have an unassailable 1-0 lead in the three-match series.

After putting Ireland in, West Indies captain Kieron Pollard picked up 4 for 25 to restrict the opposition to 149 for 9 in 19 overs in a rain-interrupted innings.

On a start-stop day, Ireland had done well to reach 109 for 3 in 13 overs, thanks to Gareth Delany‘s 44 off 22 balls. But they could manage only 38 in the last six overs and posted what looked like a below-par total on a small ground. However, the rain gods had other plans.

The final game is on Sunday starting 18:00h.
