Sunil Ambris century helps Windies record chase against Ireland

Vastavam web: Sunil Ambris’s maiden One-Day International hundred saw the West Indies complete their highest successful ODI run chase as they beat Ireland by five wickets in Dublin. Ambris made 148, off just 126 balls including 19 fours and a six, as the West Indies surpassed Ireland’s total of 327 for five with 13 deliveries remaining on Saturday.

But a third-wicket stand of 128 between Ambris, playing only his fourth ODI, and Roston Chase (46) helped get the tourists back on track. Not even a three-wicket haul from Ireland’s former England fast bowler Boyd Rankin was sufficient to deny the two-time World Cup-winners, with Jonathan Carter (43 not out) and captain Jason Holder (36) seeing the West Indies to their second triangular series win over the tournament hosts.
