West Indies level T20 series with Ireland


West Indies crushed Ireland by nine wickets in the third and final Twenty20 International in St Kitts to level the series 1-1.

The hosts dismissed their opponents for 138 in 19.1 overs and then reached the victory target with 54 balls remaining.

Opener Lendl Simmons blasted 10 sixes in an unbeaten 91 (40 balls) and Evin Lewis contributed 46.

Kevin O'Brien top-scored for Ireland with 36, while Kieron Pollard (3-19) and Dwayne Bravo (3-17) were the pick of the West Indies’ bowlers. 

The three-match series ended 1-1 after Ireland won the opening game by four runs in Grenada before Saturday's match at St Kitts was abandoned due to rain.
