After sealing the T20I series by winning the second encounter, the visitors, New Zealand will be looking to complete a whitewash against hosts Ireland in the third and final T20I match, to be played on July 22 (Thursday). Ireland, on the other hand, will want to put on a competitive show as well.

Kiwi batter Dane Cleaver played an excellent knock of 78* and helped his team to post an above-par score during the second T20I. In reply, none of the Irish batters could leave a mark with the bat as the Blackcaps won the second encounter by a big margin of 88 runs.

IRE vs NZ Pitch Report:

Short boundaries at one side and a good batting track are not helping the bowlers at all. The new ball gets some movement, but as the game progresses, batting becomes easier. As a result, the skipper winning the toss might want to bowl first and chase the total later on.
