West Indies beat Ireland by 8 wickets (with 59 balls remaining) in the final Group D match of the 2007 Cricket World Cup at Sabina Park, Kingston, Jamaica.

As both teams had already sealed their progress to the Super 8 stage, this match was effectively a Super 8 encounter, as the points won today were carried through to the next stage.

Ireland were missing their captain Trent Johnson after he failed to recover from a shoulder injury. Johnson was replaced by John Mooney, while Kyle McCallan deputised as captain.

Rain delays toward the end of Ireland's innings meant the game was reduced to a 48 over match. West Indies' target was therefore revised under the Duckworth-Lewis method to 190 runs from their 48 overs.


Toss: Ireland won, and decided to bat first.
