HIGHLIGHTS

  • New Zealand skipper Tom Latham also hurt the Ireland team and Dublin infrastructure
  • One of Latham’s six crashed into a window, shattering glass in third ODI
  • New Zealand prevailed in a thriller by just one point to win the series 3-0

New Zealand were in demolition mode on and off the pitch, literally against Ireland in the third ODI against Ireland. Choosing to strike first after winning the coin toss, New Zealand achieved a mammoth 360 runs in the first innings thanks to Martin Guptill’s 18th ODI ton and big contributions from Henry Nicholls and Glenn Phillips.

Skipper Tom Latham, fly-half Finn Allen also played a hand with thirty apiece and the first impacted not only the game but also a window at Malahide Cricket Club. Latham scored a quick 26-ball 30 that was peppered with three fours and a six.

The only six came against off-spinner Andy McBrine and it broke the glass in Dublin. The incident took place on the first delivery of the 19th. McBrine threw a full loop delivery on the stumps, giving Latham time to get down the track and send him past the long-time limit.

The ball went over the rope, but it bounced just after crossing it, then crashed directly into the glass. Spectators seated near the home area quickly ran aside to avoid being hit, but the window could not as the ball left its mark on it. New Zealand broadcaster Spark Sports shared the video with a caption, “Tom Latham breaking Irish hearts and windows”.

It looked like 360 ​​would prove to be a bit too far a bridge for Ireland. However, the hosts lived up to the challenge as they nearly recorded a famous win over the Kiwis in a tightly contested series. Paul Stirling and Harry Tector smashed tons as Ireland cruised at one point when these two were in the middle, only for New Zealand to prevail in the end by a single point and claim the series 3-0.
