Black Caps beat Ireland

Niall O'Brien's maiden ODI century was not enough to prevent Ireland falling to a 51-run defeat by New Zealand in the Tri-Nation Series.

The tourists racked up 289-7 in their 50 overs at Malahide with Neil Broom hitting 79 and Ross Taylor adding 52, according to BBC.

A third-wicket stand of 86 between O'Brien (109) and Andrew Balbirnie (36) gave Ireland hope but they collapsed from 212-5 to 238 all out.

New Zealand spinner Mitchell Santner (5-50) took five wickets.

Ireland's opener against Banglasdesh on Friday was washed out.

The Black Caps were captained for the first time by Tom Latham, while Central Districts fast bowler Seth Rance and Northern Districts all-rounder Scott Kuggeleijn made their debuts.

Luke Ronchi (37) and Latham (15) put on 53 for the opening partnership and it was a solid platform from which New Zealand capitalised.
