For the second time in two matches, New Zealand women racked up a 400-plus total before wiping out Ireland women by over 300 runs in their three-match ODI series in Dublin

Match Centre

With the final quick falling this excellent New Zealand team complete their second comprehensive win in three days. New Zealand bowlers were all impressive, with the wickets being shared between six of the seven bowlers used. The Irish batters couldn't cope with the pace of Tahuhu and Huddleston, nor the spin when it came on. Delany top scored with 33 although with only two other batters making it into double figures. There was only ever going to be one winner of the game.

New Zealand now lead the series 2-0 and can't be caught, although there is still one more game in the series to come. It's goign to be in Clontarf on Wednesday, so I hope that you'll be able to join me then. So until then, this is Justin Smyth saying goodnight from the Hills.

Watkin to Kenealy, OUT, Kenealy wasn't going to hang around and hits out at the ball, doesn't time it well and Tahuhu runs to her right at extra cover to take the final catch

Kerr to Murray, 2 byes, how did that miss? Murray has a big swing at the ball, she misses the ball, the ball misses the stumps and the keeper misses the ball....
