Lendl Simmons, Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo help West Indies level series with thumping win

West Indies 140 for 1 (Simmons 91*, Lewis 46) beat Ireland 138 (O’Brien 36, Balbirnie 28, Pollard 3-17, Bravo 3-19) by nine wickets

Kieron Pollard and Dwayne Bravo picked up three wickets each before Lendl Simmons made short work of the chase as West Indies romped home by nine wickets to finish the three-match series 1-1.

Paul Stirling and Kevin O’Brien gave Ireland another breezy start, taking them to 50 in just 3.3 overs but just like the second T20I, Pollard pegged them back with his variations. Bravo too joined in as Ireland were all out for 138 in 19.1 overs.

Simmons attacked right from the start, hitting ten sixes and five fours in his unbeaten 40-ball 91 and took West Indies home with nine overs to spare.
