Watch: As Tom Latham’s six against Ireland in the third one-day international breaks a glass window.
Tom Latham’s shot so rebounded just outside the goal lines and struck the glass window next to the billboard.
New Zealand narrowly defeated Ireland in the third and final ODI on Friday to win the series 3-0. The Dublin game was a thrilling one that kept spectators guessing right up until the final ball. Despite the fact that 719 runs were scored total, the two teams were only separated by one run after 100 overs. From Curtis Campher’s spectacular run-out to Blair Tickner’s dramatic final over, the game entertained the crowd in spades.
