Josh Little402235.50102010
18.2 to KS Williamson, Gets his man! Back of a length around middle and leg. He helps it away, but does not get the timing right. Delany at deep backward square leg gets around and completes a good catch to his right.. 174/4
18.3 to JDS Neesham, Two in two? The umpire says, yes but Neesham has reviewed. Think he is trying his luck more than anything else. Length on leg stump, he misses the ball completely and is caught stone dead in front. The ball tracker confirms that would have smashed into middle and leg.. 174/5
18.4 to MJ Santner, HE GETS IT! Oh, that is a stunning ball to claim a hat-trick. On a length tailing slightly into Santner. He misses and is caught dead in front. He reviews, again, more in hope than anything else. The ball tracker confirms that would have missed off, missed leg and smashed into middle pole. Only the second Irishman to take a hat-trick in T20Is. . 174/6
Mark Adair403919.7593130
5.5 to FH Allen, gone, flung to mid-off! Hand does well to stick the ball into his fingers, considering it was forced away off Allen's bat. Fullish delivery outside off, as Allen eyed another boundary and drilled this back hard and flat. Hand had to take half a skip to ensure the ball came on to him at a comfortable height, and grabbed it well. 52/1
Barry McCarthy4046011.5044200
Gareth Delany403027.50113110
11.2 to DP Conway, Wrong'un and this time Delany gets his man! Flighted outside off, he looks to go straight but can only get it off the bottom of the bat. Long on is in place and completes a comfortable catch. The straight boundaries are very long and Conway had no timing on that whatsoever. End of a difficult innings for him. . 96/2
13.1 to GD Phillips, Have I jinxed him? Excellent bowling from Delany, I must add. Tosses it up outside off, which means Phillips has to reach for it. He does it well and lofts it powerfully but unlike the previous shots, does not find the gap and ends up hitting it straight to deep cover.. 114/3

Trent Boult403809.5084100
Tim Southee402927.2582100
16.3 to C Campher, And Southee joins in on the fun! Slower off-cutter outside off, he dances down and strikes it well but does not get the elevation. Hits it straight down mid-off's throat.. 120/6
19.1 to MR Adair, Phillips with such a well-judged catch! Southee is getting those slower balls in on the spot. Lands it on a length on off, he looks to up and over, does not get all of it and Phillips, at long off, initially runs in and then back-tracks to complete the catch. 141/9
Lockie Ferguson402235.50101000
13.1 to GJ Delany, And he strikes straightaway! Slower, leg-cutter outside off. He is early into the cut, and can get only a thick outside edge with Conway diving to his right and completing a comfortable catch. All going downhill for Ireland.. 94/4
17.3 to F Hand, Straight up and Ferguson takes it upon himself to complete the catch! Back of a length on off, he looks to pull it away but is hurried by the pace. The ball balloons high up in the air. Ferguson calls for it, and hangs on..just.. 131/7
17.5 to GH Dockrell, And another! Ireland starting to fall apart here. Dockrell's time to depart. On a length on off, he gives himself room probably seeking to clear cover. Gets it off the bottom of the blade, with Williamson at extra cover gobbling up a simple chance.. 132/8
Mitchell Santner402626.50123100
8.1 to A Balbirnie, chopped on! He was standing on leg stump, and wanted to cut away at that. The ball was short just outside off, and tossed up too. It turned away from the batter, who played away from his body while trying to reach out, but was perhaps by the slowness of the ball. Got a bottom edge, and the middle-and-leg bail was clipped. 68/1
10.3 to HT Tector, Top-class bowling from Santner, it really is! Wide of the crease, loops it up outside off, seeing the batter move across. He has to force all the ball as he looks to loft it over covers, gets a thick outside edge and Southee at point completes a simple catch sliding forward.. 73/3
Ish Sodhi403127.75100210
9.1 to PR Stirling, bowled him! Sodhi borrows a trick from Santner, as he slows it down too. Bowls a googly on a fullish length outside off, with Stirling all ready to deposit the ball out of the ground on the leg side. He is down to slog sweep, but is foxed by the lack of pace on the ball, which hints to turn away. Stirling misses, and the ball just ends up clipping the edge of off stump. New Zealand strike twice in quick succession. 70/2
14.4 to LJ Tucker, Another one bites the dust! Leg-break outside off, he dances down the track looking to loft him straight down, but mistimes it straight to Allen at long off, who makes no mistake. The innings is unravelling quite quickly.. 102/5
