A mature innings from Ed Joyce helped Ireland to a surprise six-wicket victory over West Indies in the first T20I in Jamaica.
Chasing just 117 for victory in 20 overs, the tourists reached their target in the final over thanks to a calm 40 from Joyce.
The Irish had lost their openers inside two overs before Joyce and skipper Gary Wilson (18) steadied the ship before the latter was bowled by Sammy Badree in the seventh over.
But Joyce found the perfect ally in Andrew Poynter, the pair closing on their target with a stand of 58 for the fourth wicket.
Poynter was bowled by Sunil Narine having made 32 from 30 balls, with 25 runs still needed from as many balls.
The experienced Kevin O'Brien joined Joyce and they made it home with five balls remaining, Joyce unbeaten on 40 from 49 balls with O'Brien scoring 15 off 12.
West Indies' star-studded line-up failed to get going after Chris Gayle and Dwayne Smith had put on 31 from the first 26 balls.
Gayle's 18 from 19 balls proved to be the top score as wickets fell at regular intervals, each of the six bowlers used playing their part.
Alex Cusack (2-17) removed both Gayle and Lendl Simmons (16) and the innings failed to ignite, O'Brien (2-17) and Tim Murtagh (2-28) also amongst the wickets as the hosts struggled to 116-8.
The teams meet again over 20 overs on Friday before a one-off one-day international on Sunday, also at Sabina Park.
