Riding on Harry Tector’s maiden hundred from 109 balls Ireland posted 300/9 in the 50 overs. In reply, New Zealand finished on 305/9 in 49.5 overs at Malahide. The Black Caps seemed well out of the contest at 120/5 in the 22nd over when opener Martin Guptill was bowled for 51.
But Michael Bracewell took charge and blazed an unbeaten 127 off 82 balls, with the last of his seven sixes finishing the tense contest in style. The New Zealanders set a record by successfully chasing 20 off the 50th over.
That surpassed the previous 50th-over best in an ODI chase by England against Australia in 1987. Bracewell's innings included 20 fours and key partnerships of 61 for the seventh wicket with Ish Sodhi (25) and 64 for the ninth wicket with Lockie Ferguson (8).
