New Zealand vs Ireland ODI Highlights Today 14 May 2017

Watch IRE vs NZ highlights today on 14-5-2017. New Zealand vs Ireland cricket highlights. A maiden ODI century from Niall O’Brien was not enough for Ireland to claim another Full Member scalp as a weakened New Zealand opened their tri-series with a 51-run victory. O’Brien, playing his 85th match, brought up his century with a six but left-arm spinner Mitchell Santner collected a maiden five-wicket haul as the lower order collapsed.

New Zealand were propelled to 289 for 7 by Neil Broom’s 63-ball 79 which built on half-centuries from George Worker and Ross Taylor who added 84 for the third wicket. Ireland kept control for the middle 30 overs of the innings with the late acceleration coming in a stand of 79 in 9.1 overs between Broom and James Neesham.

Scott Kuggeleijn, one of two debutants for New Zealand, who were missing up to eight players from their Champions Trophy squad, set back Ireland’s chase with two early wickets and then spin made inroads after O’Brien and Andy Balbirnie had added 86 for the third wicket.

Kuggeleijn’s promising first outing continued when he struck first ball back to remove Gary Wilson, ending a stand of 75 in 11 overs which was setting Ireland up, and from there it was down to O’Brien. His fifth six – New Zealand only struck one in their entire innings – took him to three figures off 124 balls but when he became Santner’s fourth wicket the game was up. The last five wickets fell for 26 runs.

New Zealand raced out of the blocks having been put into bat. Luke Ronchi, returning to the opening position – where he averaged a little over eight before this match – in the absence of Martin Guptill, dominated the early scoring. He was on 25 off 18 balls before Tom Latham, the stand-in captain, opened his account, but was cut off on 37 when he gave a catch to cover point off Barry McCarthy.

George Dockrell and Kevin O’Brien had been especially effective in slowing the scoring. Dockrell sent down a nine-over spell for 33 – he had bowled his first over inside the opening Powerplay, conceding two boundaries, but his remaining overs did not include another.

Highlights will be available shortly.
