Have your say

Ireland lost the one-off One-Day International to West Indies in Jamaica on Sunday night, but only after they had given the hosts a run for their money.

The final margin of victory for West Indies was a comfortable-looking four wickets, but there was plenty to encourage Ireland coach Phil Simmons at the end of the Caribbean tour.

Ireland will now return home in good heart with the World Twenty20 finals in Bangladesh to come next month but if Simmons wants an improvement in one specific area it will definitely be his team’s batting.
