Paul Sterling backs away to launch a six over cover

Paul Stirling and Harry Tector hit centuries to keep Ireland on track in their chase of 361 against New Zealand in the ongoing third ODI. Earlier, Martin Guptill scored a scorching 115 as New Zealand posted an above-par total. The Kiwis side has gained an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series after having won the first two ODIs. Both matches have been keenly-fought encounters and Ireland are yet to taste success in the rubber. The hosts have pride to play for, and Paul and Harry seem to have given them a real shot at victory with their magnificent tons.
