While Ireland's T20 World Cup campaign was ending in a sodden mess in Florida, the sun was shining on the Academy at Bready as they completed a 3-0 series clean sweep over their West Indian counterparts.

The young Irish squad have been a breath of fresh air, displaying a positive, fearless brand of cricket that might - indeed should - give the senior selectors and coaches food for thought.

Gavin Hoey took the bowling honours here with the Pembroke all-rounder hastening a West Indies collapse, taking a hat-trick on his way to 4-46, the visitors 236 all out with seven overs unused, having been 150-3 and 191-4 at stages.

Teenage speedster Olly Riley claimed 3-38 too, while Liam McCarthy's two catches were quite exceptional.

Chris De Freitas (38) got the chase off to a steady start alongside new opener Kian Hilton - Jake Egan joining Reuben Wilson on the injured list.

Morgan Topping was again in the runs, top-scoring with 46 (3 fours, 2 sixes), adding 64 for the 5th wicket with Scott Macbeth, whose fluent 36 included six boundaries.

There was a slight wobble at 185 for 6, but there was no limping to the line as Terenure's Seamus Lynch hit six fours and cleared the ropes twice in a rapid unbeaten 45 from just 28 balls, adding an unbroken 53 in five overs with Liam McCarthy to seal the four-wicket win in 39 overs.

The teams now switch to red-ball cricket, with the first of two four-days matches starting on Tuesday at North Down.
