Consistency is the main focus of fast bowler Alzarri Joseph, whose Man Of The Match performance of four for 32 set up a comfortable victory for West Indies over Ireland in the opening game of the three-match one-day international cricket series at Kensington Oval on Tuesday.

Opting to bat first, Ireland struggled against the lively Joseph and a disciplined bowling attack to fall for a modest 180.

Opener Evin Lewis then hit a fluent unbeaten 99 off 99 balls as the home side romped to victory with 100 deliveries remaining.

Joseph, who put in only modest performances against Afghanistan and India since returning from injury sustained in the Indian Premier League last year, bowled with some life putting the Irish batsman in much discomfort.  (EZS)
