Scorecard

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.

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.
