After suffering a 10-wicket drubbing at the hands of New Zealand Women in the one-off T20, the Irish Women would be looking for an improved performance in the first ODI scheduled to be held in Dublin on Friday.
Nothing much went right for the hosts in the one-off T20, after they batted first and were quickly reduced to 2-17 in under four overs. Lewis held the Irish innings together with a brisk 61 off 45 balls to propel their innings to a respectable 8-136 in 20 overs.
137 was never going to be a problem for an experienced Kiwi outfit, as skipper Suzie Bates (63 off 29 balls) and Watkin (77 off 38 balls) strolled past the target with ten wickets in hand. The first offers the chance for NZ -W to continue the winning momentum with another emphatic performance, while hosts IR-W would be hoping for an improved performance in the 50-over format of the game.
