Shamar Brooks, who made his debut at the age of 33, scored 93 goals and led the West Indies to a 24th win over Ireland in their first one-day international game at Sabina Park on Saturday.

The West Indies had all gone 269 on the penultimate ball before Ireland were sent off for 245 at the start of the last time.

Brooks missed becoming the second West Indian to score an ODI century upon his induction, after Desmond Hines, the team’s new selector.

Brooks and captain Kieron Pollard, who made 69, combined for 155 points after their team was reduced to 62-4 in the 19th minute. Andy McBrain took off the spinner two stakes in two sets.

The Irish basically bowled the well, with averages Mark Adair and Craig Young taking the lottery three wickets each.

The West Indies went 12 times without limits as Brooks and Pollard picked their moments.

Six Pollard’s four balls came in a six-ball space, including three in a row from McBrain over the middle of the wicket, long on the back square leg. He was forty-second, edging out the frontier long drag off Young after 69 of 66 balls.

Brooks went to Adair in the 45th minute, fined 93 off 89 balls including nine limits and three sixes.

Ireland, emerging from a joint streak with the United States in Fort Lauderdale, started without Paul Sterling, Simi Singh and Ben White – all of whom had coronavirus.

After William Porterfield came out for a duck and McBrain retired after a 34-year injury after hitting the helmet grill, captains Andy Balberni and Harry Tctor put on a solid platform, even as their running rate rose.

But after Balberni is hit on the grill by Odin Smith, three balls are later knocked out in a new canoe by Romario Shepherd, poking into the ball and sprinting behind him. After 71 of 94 balls, Balberni’s exit ended a position of 103.

Tector was out for 53 of 68 balls the next time, trying to cut Smith and outpacing Ruston Chase on the border.

With both batsmen going 38th, Ireland never recovered.

Shepherd and Zari Joseph took three wickets each.

The series stays in Kingston on Tuesdays and Fridays, followed by a one-off Twenty20.
