Emerging Ireland are facing an uphill battle to salvage anything after the West Indies Academy dominated the second day of their first-class match in Antigua. The Irish batting has been frail all tour, and after Murray Commins - who hit 17 fours in his 93 - added 128 for the third wicket with Cade Carmichael (59), the wheels came off as they lost eight wickets for 70 runs to be bowled out for 213. Early wickets for Matty Foster gave them hope but the initiative was taken back by the hosts with Teddy Bishop (92) and Kevlon Anderson (79) sharing a third wicket partnership of 152. When left-arm spinner Mike Frost took four wickets it appeared that the Irish would be able to restrict the lead to manageable proportions. However, a counter-attacking 9th wicket stand of 84 in 12 overs saw the Irish team wilt in the face of the onslaught. Teddy Bishop thumped an unbeaten 102 from just 69 balls that included 9 fours and 8 sixes, and he found a willing ally in Johann Layne, whose 50-ball 56 saw him hit six fours and clear the ropes three times as West Indies finished on 409. With a lead of 196, Heinrich Malan's side faced a tricky final hour before the close. They failed to emerge unscathed with the loss of James McCollum, quickly followed by Cade Carmichael and Murray Commins to leave them very much behind the eight ball at 29 for 3. The third day's play gets underway on Monday at 2pm Irish time.
