ST GEORGE’S – Opener Evin Lewis made up for his heartbreak of six days ago with a third One-Day International (ODI) hundred as West Indies completed a whitewash of Ireland with a five-wicket victory in the third ODI yesterday.

Chasing a revised target of 197 off 47 balls after rain intervened in their initial pursuit of 203, the Caribbean side encountered little issues as they coasted home at the Grenada National Stadium.

Lewis, who was left stranded on 99 when West Indies won the opening game last Tuesday in Barbados, made amends with a superb 102 off 97 balls, while fellow left-hander Nicholas Pooran finished unbeaten on 43 from 44 deliveries.

Brandon King struck 38 off 43 balls as West Indies recovered from the dismissals of Shai Hope (6) and Sunil Ambris (6) to complete their second series whitewash in three months.

Leg-spinner Hayden Walsh Jr had earlier snatched four for 36 as Ireland once again failed to post a challenging total and were dismissed for 203 off the first ball of the final over. (CMC)
