The presentation ceremony...
Earlier in the game, Tom Latham won the toss and on a flat pitch decided to bat first. This decision proved to be positive as the Kiwi openers were off to an absolutely lightning-fast start. New Zealand, riding on a superb ton by Martin Guptill and a cracking knock by Henry Nicholls went on to post a mammoth total of 360 runs. The Irish bowlers were all taken to the cleaners and without the services of strike bowler Mark Adair it was always going to be difficult for them. The wicket was great for batting and the hosts came out all guns blazing and reached a point where they were ahead of the chase but the Kiwi bowlers got the wickets towards the end which broke the Irish momentum and New Zealand went on to win the ODI series 3-0. Stay tuned for the presentation.
Ireland will be thinking that cricket is a cruel game as within a span of a week, they have had two heartbreaking losses which not only cost them the series but crucial World Cup Super League points as well. The skipper faltered once again but his opening partner Paul Stirling was at his devastating best. Stirling along with upcoming Irish superstar Harry Tector added on 179 runs for the 3rd wicket and put the hosts in a position of promise. However, once Stirling got out for 120, Tector took a bit of time getting to his ton and then gave away his wicket. The tailenders provided a few lusty blows but none of them just hung on till the end which proved to be the difference between the two sides. Ireland have played some brilliant cricket but unfortunately, have nothing to show for it.
With 360 runs on the board, all New Zealand needed were a couple of early wickets and Matt Henry provided them an early wicket just as he has done throughout the series. Lockie Ferguson wasn't quite on song and after picking up a couple of wickets inside the first 10 overs, the Kiwi bowlers were largely ineffective for the next 20 or so overs. The spinners couldn't control the pace of the game and were easily dealt with. But just as the game went on, the bowlers started to pick up wickets and Henry and Santner ended up with 4 wickets and 3 wickets respectively. In the end, Blair Tickner who hasn't had the best of series stood up to bowl the final over and saw his side to victory.
So close yet so far and the Irish hearts are broken once again! What an absolute thriller of a match and Ireland were just moments away from accomplishing the fifth highest run chase in ODI history but Blair Tickner and New Zealand had other plans. In the end, the Kiwis held their nerves and have swept the series 3-0!

Blair Tickner To Graham Hume
Bye! That's it! It's a brilliant final over from Blair Tickner and New Zealand have managed to hang on. This is bowled from 'round the wicket and it is slower and into the pitch, wide of off stump. Graham Hume looks to thrash it through covers but is beaten by the lack of pace. The batters scamper through for a bye as Tickner celebrates in style. New Zealand win by 1 run!

Blair Tickner To Craig Young OUT!
OUT! RUN OUT! Craig Young departs and the game just keeps on turning on its head. This is slower from Blair Tickner and bowled into the pitch. Young looks to launch it over long on but mistimes it badly. The ball is skied around the vacant mid on region. The ball falls safely as the batters push for two. Martin Guptill gets across from mid off and somehow manages to throw it towards the keeper. Tom Latham fetches the wide throw and whips off the bails. The replays show that Young was short depsite the dive and New Zealand are one wicket away from victory.
Is that run-out? The throw is a weak one and it comes to the keeper's end but the batter still seems to be short. The decision is taken upstairs and the replays show that Craig Young is well short of his crease. OUT!

OUT! CAUGHT! Matt Henry has the last laugh as he gits rid of the dangerous Paul Stirling! This is banged in short again and over off but Henry takes some pace off the ball. Stirling fetches it and tries to muscle it over the mid-wikcet fence but his feet don't move and Stirling ends up hitting it down the throat of the man in the deep. Glenn Phillips takes an assured catch and Stirling departs after a fantatsic innings, gets a huge round of applause from the crowd too. 120 needed now off 92 balls. Do New Zealand sense an opening now?

FOUR! Up and over! Length ball, around off, Harry Tector lofts it high and straight back over the bowler's head. The fielders from mid off and long on try to get to it but the ball trickles away into the fence.
DRINKS! What a spirited run-chase this has been from the Irish so far. Paul Stirling and Harry Tector are batting beautifully at the moment and have not allowed New Zealand to bring some control back in the game. The required rate is just over 8 and with eight wickets still left in the bank, Ireland have put themselves in a brilliant position here. New Zealand need to break this partnership as quickly as they can, otherwise the game can drift away from them quite quickly. This will be fifth highest successful run- chase ever, if Ireland does chase this down. Let's see how things pan out...

DRINKS! It has been a solid start from Ireland! They have lost two wickets on the way but more importantly they have scored at a brisk rate and have not let the required rate get out of their hands so far. This pair of Paul Stirling and Harry Tector is crucial for them and Irish would hope that they bat as long as possible. The Kiwis though would know that a wicket here or few tight overs can bring the pressure back on Ireland and we are all set for another fascinating passage of play.
