The start of Ireland’s team, chasing the target, was not special. Opener batsman Captain Andrew Balbirnie was dismissed without scoring any run but Paul Stirling remained firm from the other end. During this, Andy McBrine, who came out to bat at number three, also went on to score 26 runs, but after that Harry Tactor, who came to bat, started taking the news of the New Zealand team along with Sterling and there was a partnership of 179 runs between the two.

Meanwhile, it looked like the match was out of New Zealand’s hands but Matt Henry gave a blow to Ireland’s hopes by dismissing Sterling. Sterling played an innings of 120 runs in 103 balls in which he also hit 14 fours and 5 sixes. At the same time, Harry Tactor was bowled after scoring 108 runs off the ball of Mitchell Santner.
