Ireland get set to host New Zealand for a three-match T20I series after their ODI series loss recently. Though the Kiwis might have won the series, they were given a run for their money by the Irish side. Belfast will host all three games after Dublin was the venue for the ODIs. 

New Zealand scored 360 batting first in the third and final ODI. Ireland finished on 359 as the Kiwis managed a narrow victory by one run. They won the first ODI by one wicket and the second by three wickets while chasing. Kiwi skipper Tom Latham was a relieved man after their series win over the Irish.

“The games have been fantastic. From the first game to today, full credit to the groundsman for producing a wicket like that. The pitch was pretty hard in the morning when we came out to bat, but Ireland batted equally well, credit to them. Really happy with how the guys responded after that Ireland batting effort. The guys have been playing great cricket, they are a great bunch of guys” Kiwi stand-in skipper Tom Latham said after the series win.

Meanwhile, Irish skipper Andrew Balbrnie had a smile on his face even after the series loss. They have been playing some really good cricket since the India Test series which they brought into the series against the Kiwis as well. Centuries from Paul Stirling and Harry Tector was not enough to see Ireland home. Nonetheless, in Tector the aide has found a huge potential who can become one of the better batsmen of the next generation of Irish cricket. 

“It was an amazing game, I think we did pretty well. It (lost games) has been a bitter pill to swallow. Those were two of the better hundreds in Irish jerseys, put us in a better position. Outstanding, he (Tector) can be proud of his effort, two hundreds in one week. We want to play these games regularly. It’s a shame we don’t have any ODI games left for the year, but we do have some T20Is to be played” said Balbirnie. 

If Ireland plays the same brand of cricket in the T20I series that they played in the ODIs, the side can fancy a series win and shock the Kiwis.
