World Twenty20: Ireland Life-line From Rain Delayed Windies Win

In the second match in Ireland’s group in the ICC Twenty20 World Cup England posted an impressive first innings total of 191 from 20 overs – including a fine 55 from 35 balls by former Ireland batsman Eoin Morgan [*ahem* – Ed].  The Windies openers started strongly, making 30 from 2.2 overs, before rain stopped play. When they resumed, the Duckworth/Lewis calculation deemed that a less-than-challenging target of 60 from 6 overs would be sufficient for victory. Still, it wasn’t until the penultimate ball that the target was reached. Day three as it happened. And Cricinfo has the match scorecard. Which means that, unlikely as it may seem, Ireland now have the possibility of progressing to the next phase of the competition. If they can beat England tomorrow…  Start scheduled for 6.30pm [BST].  Weather permitting…
