  • Dwayne Bravo suffered defeat in his first West Indies appearance since 2016

The bowler conceded 17 runs but recovered to end with 2 for 28, in the end playing a pivotal role in restricting Ireland to 208 for 7.

However, the home side appeared comfortably on course for victory - bringing up their hundred inside 10 overs with just two wickets down - until the game was decided in the last over.

Ireland's 20-year-old left-arm fast bowler Josh Little had ball in hand and, taking two wickets, managed to see out the final ball win.

Rutherford and Dwayne Bravo - making his first global appearance since 2016 - fell to impressive left-arm seamer Josh Little (3-29) in the final over as Ireland bounced back from defeat in the recent ODI series to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match rubber.

With five needed from the final delivery of the game, Hayden Walsh Jr missed a desperate swing, leaving the Irish to celebrate their first win of the tour.

"Everyone is in ecstasy, we came so close in this second ODI (lost by a wicket) and it may have affected us in this third ODI, so to show the bottle and come out against one of the best teams T20 cricket and getting a win was great for the team atmosphere, "said Irish skipper Andrew Balbirnie".

Bravo's first three balls on his return were dispatched for 16 as Stirling clipped him for four and then smashed successive sixes down the ground.

Stirling would fall just 5-runs short of his century, but his 95 would prove more than useful and included no fewer than 8 sixes and half a dozen fours.

West Indian captain Kieron Pollard hit a windy 31 of 15 balls, threatening to withdraw the match from Ireland.

Stirling smashed eight sixes and six fours in a brutal display of hitting as he and opening partner Kevin O'Brien (48 off 32) took Ireland to 154-0 after 12.1 overs, clubbing a world-record powerplay score of 93 in the process.

But Sherfane Rutherford (26 of 13) and Nicholas Pooran (26 of 23) marlled 18 of Barry McCarthy by 27, throwing three six and two four between them to leave the West Indies needing 16 of 12 balls.

"It was touch and go, but we're enjoying the tight games - we came out the right side this time, so it's a nice feeling".
