So that is it from this game! Ireland now have a break and it will be Windies who be facing Bangladesh next up on the 7th of May at 1045 local (0945 GMT). Till then, take care and goodbye!
Windies skipper, Jason Holder, says it is a satisfying victory for them. Credits John Campbell and Shai Hope's excellent innings. Holder also says the bowlers did well especially Shannon Gabriel. Mentions that they will look to continue their performance in the next match also.
Ireland skipper, William Porterfield, starts by crediting the Windies openers. Mentions they were at a decent position after the first hour but once the two got in, they took the game away. Adds further that it is a learning curve for the youngsters and they are going to get a lot of opportunities and they will have to grab it. Ends by saying they need a few partnerships from the batsman at the top to lay a platform and that is what they will be working on.
John Campbell, Man of the Match, says that he is happy with his performance and he is even more pleased with the victory. Adds that they put a big score on the board and that helped their bowlers to perform well.
Every Windies bowler except for Holder had a wicket at least to their names. Nurse finished with 4 and Gabriel was the second highest with a three-fer. Stay tuned for the presentation.
After the batsmen, the Windies bowlers also did their job brilliantly. Kemar Roach and Sheldon Cottrell made quick work of the top order. Kevin O'Brien then, first with Andy Balbirnie and then Gary Wilson stitched two decent stands. Kevin scored a half ton but a lot more was needed. Once he fell though, the remaining batters could not stick around and from 152 for 3, they have been bundled out for 185.
A very, very dominating performance by the Windies has saw them win the first game of the Tri-series. To be honest, after they posted 381 on the board courtesy tons from Shai Hope and John Campbell, the result was never in doubt.

34.3ANurse to JLittle
OUCH! Little has hit his partner at the other end. Dances down the track and smashes it towards the non-striker. He may not have been expecting it and is not able to get out of the way. Protects himself by lifting his hand and is in some pain now.
Joshua Little is the new man in!
