GALLERY: Ireland cricket team lose out to New Zealand

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson on Day 3 of the 3rd test match between New Zealand Black Caps and South Africa Proteas

But the number three ran out of partners and was dismissed for 109 by Santner as the left-arm spinner finished with five for 50 in New Zealand's 51-run victory.

It was a game against his home country for Ireland coach John Bracewell, who featured in 41 Tests and 53 one-day internationals for New Zealand before coaching the national side between 2003 and 2008.

Ireland captain William Porterfield chose to bowl against New Zealand in the second match of the tri-series and handed a debut to 30-year-old allrounder Simi Singh.

Scott Kuggeleijn, on his ODI debut, removed Ireland openers William Porterfield and Paul Stirling in his first three overs and returned to have Wilson caught in the covers by Ross Taylor to spark the Ireland collapse. Ireland and Bangladesh will play the series opener on May 12, while New Zealand will open their campaign in this short series on May 14 when they take on the hosts Ireland.

Earlier a strong middle-order batting performance helped the Black Caps make 289 for seven after being put in to bat on a breezy morning in north county Dublin.

The wicket-taker was Barry McCarthy, who can surprise batsmen with his pace, and as a result he has a habit of taking wickets in his first two overs.

Ross Taylor scored 52 and George Worker 50 after Ronchi (37) and captain Tom Latham (15) departed inside the first 10 overs.

The pair put on 75 in 66 balls before Wilson's knock ended tamely, holing out to Ross Taylor in the covers to give Scott Kuggeleijn a third wicket on his global debut.

Broom however ensured a big finish for New Zealand, who scored 130 off the last 15 overs.

Mitchell Santner picked up five wickets against Ireland.

Peter Chase could not continue his good early season form, going for 74 runs and taking his only wicket in the last over.
