Lewis had reached his 50 off 41 balls building a 100-run partnership with Brandon King (38 off 43 balls) for the third wicket. The 28-year old left hander scored an unbeaten 99 in the first match in Barbados.

A brief rain stoppage had the play stopped for a while that made the target revised for West Indies.

Earlier in the proceeding, leg-spinner Hayden Walsh took four wickets as Ireland were dismissed for 203.

Walsh, who starred with the bat with an unbeaten 46 in Thursday’s nail-biting one-wicket win in Barbados, finished with stand-out figures of 4-36 while Oshane Thomas claimed 3-41.

Ireland skipper Andy Balbirnie stretched his score to 71, his ninth ODI half-century featuring six boundaries and two sixes. Andy McBrine was Ireland’s second highest scorer with an unbeaten 25.

The two sides now play a three-game T20 series starting at the same Grenada venue on Wednesday. All-rounder Dwayne Bravo was called for the T20s on Sunday after coming out of international retirement.

Brief scores:

Ireland 203 all out in 49.1 overs (A. Balbirnie 71; H. Walsh 4/36, O. Thomas 3/41) v West Indies 199/5 (D/L revised target of 197) (E. Lewis 102, N. Pooran 43 not out).
