New Zealand required 20 from the last over for a triumph to beat Ireland, Bracewell crushed three fours and two sixes to win it with a ball left.. Harry Tector made 113 in Ireland’s 300-9 and the other members of the team battled before the late firecrackers from Bracewell. It was one more unfortunate loss for Ireland at the Co Dublin setting in the wake of losing to India by four runs in their second T20 game the month before.
New Zealand skipper Tom Latham won the toss and his choice to ball first in the World Cup Super League game looked a decent one after the early wicket of openers Paul Stirling and Andrew Balbirnie. Tector again showed his gigantic commitment with an eminent innings as he established the groundwork for a sound Irish aggregate.
A 64-run partnership with Andy McBrine (39) was trailed by a stand of 94 close by Campher (46). Simi Singh’s energetic 30 took Ireland to 300-9 with Lockie Ferguson, Blair Tickner and Ish Sodhi each guaranteeing two wickets. New Zealand likewise made a wavering beginning to their innings with Will Young and Finn Allen took wickets to leave them on 19-2.
Martin Guptill (50) and Latham (23) steadied the Black Caps before Glenn Phillips added 38. Nonetheless, the Irish assault held the edge with Campher taking three wickets and they seemed to be on course for a first success over world number one side New Zealand with the score on 218-7 and with under 10 overs remaining.
Be that as it may, they couldn’t hold Bracewell within proper boundaries as he shook along to keep the guests in the chase. Mark Adair took a wicket and surrendered only four runs from the penultimate over to leave New Zealand 281-9 with six balls remaining, before Bracewell’s late attack.
The groups will meet in the future on Tuesday at Malahide in the second ODI with the last match three days after the fact.
One of the crazy finishes ever in ODI history: need 20 runs in the final over and Bracewell smashed 4,4,6,4,6.pic.twitter.com/aEgDz7QDw6
