Curtis Campher Runs Out Will Young With A Terrific Throw Against New Zealand In Ireland’s Third ODI. Young drove a half-volley for a quick single on the second ball of the 13th over, but Curtis Campher’s brilliance ended his innings.
New Zealand defeated Ireland in the third One-Day International (ODI) on Friday in a last-ball thriller at The Village in Dublin. With the victory, the Blackcaps improved to 3-0 against the hosts in the series. The last match that went down to the wire saw New Zealand win by one run. Though Ireland eventually lost the match, they put up an incredible fight in pursuit of the guests’ 361-run target. They came close to winning the match, needing 10 runs off the final over, but New Zealand’s Blair Tickner held his nerve to secure the victory for his team.
While Ireland’s batters excelled in the second innings, their fielders, particularly Curtis Campher, who effected a run-out to end New Zealand batter Will Young’s innings, were outstanding in the first.
Young drove a half-volley to the right of extra-cover fielder Campher for a quick single on the second ball of the 13th over, but he failed to reach the other end in time as Campher ran to his right, picked the ball from his right hand, and hit the bulle’s eye at the non-striker end. Young left after three runs.
