Ireland stunned the cricket world as they dumped two-time T20 World Cup winners West Indies out of this year’s tournament, with the final play-off match ending in controversial circumstances. The game had all the hallmarks of a classic, with Ireland chasing down their target of 147 with three balls to spare, but ended in confusion after Windies bowler Carlos Brathwaite refused to accept that one of his deliveries had hit the stumps and given an Ireland batsman out leg before wicket (LBW).  The Ireland cricket team has produced a stunning performance to defeat the two-time World T20 champions, West Indies in their opening match of the ICC World Twenty20 2014 at Sabina Park on Sunday (March 16). The Caribbean outfit, who won back-to-back titles in 2012 and 2014 have been ousted by Ireland who, up until this point, have never qualified for the main event. Shannon Gabriel was in complete control with the ball and finished with figures of 4-0-19-2 as Ireland produced a disciplined effort to restrict West Indies to 137/7 from their allotted 20 overs. 21/03/17: Ireland stuns West Indies After their famous victory over England in Saturday’s encounter, Ireland gave a solid performance against two-time world cup winners, West Indies. After restricting them to a below-par total of 126 runs in 19 overs, they went on to win with two balls and four wickets remaining. Captain William Porterfield was awarded Man of The Match for his superb bowling figures; 4/26 in 4 overs. With eight victories out of eight matches, Ireland is currently in the first place. Report card: 4 players who starred in winning run chase IRE’s James Shannon (25 runs, 2x6, 5 wickets), IRE’s Nathan Buckley (13 runs, 1x6), IRE’s Angus McCluskey (12 runs), and WICB’s George Bailey (11 runs). The game was a total team effort. Report card: 4 players who flopped in the losing run chase: WICB’s Carlos Brathwaite (0 runs, 0x6), WICB’s Jason Holder (2 runs, 0x6), IRE’s Paul Stirling (3 runs), and IRE’s Kevin O Brien (1 run). Though Ireland played well as a team, these four men were responsible for giving up their chance at victory. For Irish cricket, the day was historic for the first time ever, an Irish team has played on behalf of Ireland in a T20 World Cup. On Friday, Ireland defeated West Indies to become one of 16 teams to qualify for next year’s tournament in India and Bangladesh. The match was played at Warner Park in Basseterre, St Kitts & Nevis. The win came after a dramatic tie against Afghanistan earlier today: Ireland needed to beat both Afghanistan and West Indies by 10 wickets or more to qualify—and they did just that. How it unfolded at Providence Stadium After losing to Afghanistan and India, Ireland needed to beat arch-rivals England on Sunday (March 10) in order to advance from Pool A. An Ireland victory would also have meant a clean sweep for cricket in Western Europe after Denmark had beaten Scotland on Saturday. But despite Ireland posting a competitive 161 for seven – their highest total ever in a World Cup – England romped home with four balls remaining, thanks mainly to a half-century from opener Jason Roy.
