Ireland vs New Zealand: How to watch the Twenty20 series on BT Sport
The Black Caps travel to Ireland after a galling Test series defeat to England, while Ireland continue life without their longest-serving captain. Watch all the action on BT Sport.
New Zealand travel to Ireland for a limited-overs tour weeks after a chastening Test series defeat to England, with every game exclusively live on BT Sport.
The Black Caps, ranked number one in the ODI rankings, played the Irish in three one-day matches with three Twenty20s to come after their Test side was whitewashed by Brendon McCullum’s resurgent England.

The ODI series formed part of the inaugural Cricket World Cup Super League, which serves part of the qualification process for the World Cup.
The revised tour comes two years after Coronavirus put paid to the 2020 series, and it comes at a notable time in the development of both sides.
Ireland are entering the post-William Porterfield era after their long-standing captain confirmed his retirement in June, while New Zealand named a somewhat experimental side with one eye on the World Cup in India next October.
The ODI matches took place in Malahide, Dublin with the following T20s in Belfast.
