A look at how the Irish players performed during the recent six match tour of the Caribbean, where they shared the spoils in the T20 series, but were whitewashed in the ODI's.

The ODI batting stats don't make great reading with none of the batsman managing 100 runs total in the three games.

Skipper Andy Balbirnie led the way with 97 runs at 32.33, and was one of only two players to make a half century in the ODI format - Paul Stirling the other.

In the bowling, he spinners were the most successful with Simi Singh claiming six scalps and Andy McBrine five, while Barry McCarthy's four wickets led the way for the seamers.

In the T20 batting, Paul Stirling was the stand-out batter, continuing his rich vein of form in the format, hitting 123 runs at 41, with an impressive strike rate of 178.26.

His opening partnership with Kevin O'Brien (89 at 29.33) continues to blossom, and Ireland's best chance of victory comes if these pair fire, as they did in the excellent win in the first T20I.

The middle order showed glimpses of promise - Gareth Delany's four consecutive sixes off Hayden Walsh a highlight - but remains a fragile work in progress.

The bowling was hampered by the injuries to Boyd Rankin and Mark Adair, and was taken apart in the last match. Josh Little's left-arm pace adds a little variety but much more quality is needed if Ireland are to trouble the top sides.

Finally, a word about the fielding, which was for the most part excellent, including some tremendous catches.

A difficult task against Ireland's nemesis Afghanistan is next on the horizon. Can the Irish get a win or two against them? On the evidence of this tour, most certainly.
