West Indies Beats Ireland by 44 Runs After Devon Smith’s Century

March 11 (Bloomberg) -- Devon Smith’s century helped the West Indies defeat Ireland by 44 runs in their Group B match in the Cricket World Cup.

Smith was out for 107 runs, and Kieron Pollard reached 94 as the West Indies got 275 runs in its 50 overs at the Punjab Stadium in Chandigarh, India. Kevin O’Brien took four wickets for Ireland, which was all out for 231. Ed Joyce was bowled on 84 and Gary Wilson was out leg-before-wicket for 61.

The victory moves the West Indies into second place in the group with 6 points from four games, behind India, which has 7 points from four matches. England, which is playing Bangladesh today, is in third with 5 points from four matches. South Africa occupies Group B’s final qualifying spot.

The top four teams of each of the two seven-team groups move to the quarterfinals. The tournament ends April 2.
