After a convincing win in the first game, New Zealand will look to wrap up the series when they lock horns with hosts Ireland on Wednesday (July 20) at the Civil Service Cricket Club in Belfast. The Kiwis are undefeated in this tour after winning three-match ODI series followed by the first T20I. 

Riding on an unbeaten half-century from Glenn Phillips, the tourists had posted 173 runs on the board in the first game. In reply, Ireland batters never managed to keep up with the strike rate and could only score 142, losing the game by 31 runs. Lockie Ferguson was the pick of the New Zealand bowlers, returning with figures of 4/14.

The Black Caps will hope to keep the momentum going and seal the series in today’s game. On the other hand, Ireland will hope to put their best foot forward and make a comeback in the series.

Pitch Report

The pitch is likely to be a balanced wicket with assistance on offer for both batters and bowlers. Anything over 150 would be a good total to defend. Teams winning the toss would like to bat first given that chasing has looked relatively difficult on this wicket.
