J Little to J Carter, Loud, loud appeal but not out says the umpire. A length ball to the new batsman from over the wicket on off. Carter misses the flick and gets hit near the knee roll. The appeal goes up in unison but the umpire turns it down. Looked pretty adjacent, unfortunatelu for Little and Ireland though, it has been given not out.

Jonathan Carter is the new batsman in.

J Little to R Chase, OUT! The partnership has been broken by Little! Chase won't be there till the end of the chase. A length ball from around the wicket, angled into the right-hander. Roston misses the ball, it goes on the pad and then to peg the leg stump back. Chase misses out on a half ton by 4 runs. Can this wicket inspire Ireland to make a comeback in the game that seemed to be going so smoothly for West Indies?

Tim Murtagh to S Ambris, Loud appeal but turned down! A length ball landing outside off and coming inward, keeps a tad low as well. Ambris misses his whip and gets hit on the pad in front of off and the Ireland fielders and bowler appeal. The umpire though has turned it down. Probably the height or an inside edge could have been the reason. Looked pretty adjacent though.

Tim Murtagh to R Chase, FOUR! Edged but four. A length ball outside off, Chase looks to cut the ball but gets an outside edge that goes past the keeper and fine to the third man boundary. Everything going the way of West Indies here. They need less than 100 now.

Tim Murtagh to R Chase, Length delivery on middle, Chase drives it towards mid on for a single.

Drinks break! The away side is coasting to a brilliant chasing win here. They are scoring boundaries at will and also picking up the singles and doubles. Ireland seem to have run out of ideas and are waiting for the batsmen to make a mistake. They need a wicket desperately or this game could be over soon. The equation is now 105 off 90.
