So New Zealand win the game by 346 runs and take a 1-0 lead in the series. Its only a couple of days, till the next game, this Sunday. So I hope that you will join me then. Until then this is Justin Smyth saying good night on this record breaking day. Good night!

New Zealand today played the perfect game today, the bowlers never let the Irish Batters settle, after the early loss of the openers it was always going to be a struggle. Without the power hitters that New Zealand had, they were always going to be struggling. With wickets being lost in clumps it just was going to be too much for this young team.

Isobel Joyce is not going to be able to bat, she was taken to hospital earlier to get checked out after bumping her head on the ground whilst fielding.
