Kingston (Jamaica):Shivnarine Chanderpaul hit an impressive unbeaten ton as Cup hosts West Indies beat surprise package Ireland by eight wickets in their final Group D match at Sabina Park on Friday.

Ireland made 183 for eight in 48 overs after rain stopped play and under the Duckworth-Lewis rules West Indies were set a target of 190 which they knocked off comfortably with 9.5 overs to spare.


Jermy Bray top scored for Eire with a well struck 41 while Botha (28) and skipper McCallan (20*) chipped in with the useful contributions.

With both teams having already secured their places in the Super Eights stage, the win allows Brian Lara's men to carry two points with them into the next phase.

Chanderpaul's sixth one day century, his first in a World Cup, included 10 fours and four sixes.
