West Indies will take aim at their second clean sweep in less than two months today.

Having beaten Ireland in the first two matches at Kensington Oval, the Caribbean side will be bubbling with confidence ahead of the third and final one-day international (ODI) at the Grenada National Stadium.

Head coach Phil Simmons made it clear yesterday what the goal was.

“We’re leading 2-0, but we all know 3-0 looks better than 2-1, so we are going for the clean sweep. We would like to play that complete game and not just bowl well, or bat well, or field well, but to do all three departments very well on the same day,” he said. (HG/ICC)
