IRE vs NZ New Zealand tour of Ireland, 2nd ODI Match Preview:
Ireland and New Zealand are set to face each other in the second ODI of the three-match series on Tuesday at The Village, Dublin.
New Zealand stole victory from the jaws of defeat in the first ODI as Michael Bracewell’s stunning ton helped them hunt down 301. The bowling was decent but New Zealand’s batting wasn’t consistent and it was only because of Bracewell’s brilliance that took them over the line . Meanwhile, Ireland were excellent for most parts of the first ODI but couldn’t close out the game. They will take a lot of positives from that encounter but will want to bounce back strongly as they look to beat New Zealand for the first-time ever in an international game.
