Commentary (Ireland innings)

That brings us to the end of this game. The Kiwis have got their hands on the tri-series with a game to go. It's a dead rubber between New Zealand and Bangladesh on 24th May, 2017 at Dublin. Do join us for that match. Until next time, it's goodbye from us. Cheers!

New Zealand skipper and Man of the Match, Tom Latham is really elated with the performance that they have put up today. Is happy to learn from the mistakes that they had committed in the previous matches. Adds they racked up a huge score on the board courtesy a good partnerships which kept on stringing. Feels it's always good to contribute in a winning cause. On the Champions Trophy, he says the preparations have been good and hopes for the best. Ends by saying they have a game left and wants to play good cricket.

Ireland skipper, William Porterfield is disappointed with how things turned out today. Feels they bowled well in patches but couldn't stop the onslaught. Credits Simi Sing for putting up a good show with the ball. Ends by saying that they have been playing good cricket recently and hopes they can continue the same whenever they get an opportunity next time.

So, quite a comprehensive win for New Zealand which has seen them taking an unassailable lead in the tri-series. To be frank, Ireland were never really in the game chasing a huge total. New Zealand kept chipping away at the wickets and hence made it very difficult for the Ireland batsman to get going. The only positive for the hosts was the 51-run stand between Joyce and Porterfield with the latter scoring 48, highest of the innings. Earlier in the day, Tom Latham led the way for the Kiwis scoring a ton while Colin Munro played a handy cameo late down the order to take the score past 340. The bowlers then did their job with utmost ease as all of them have a wicket to their name. Matt Henry was the best to scalp three while Anderson and Kuggeleijn got two apiece.
