Watch: as a glass window is broken by Tom Latham six against Ireland in the third one-day international.
So the shot from Tom Latham rebounded just beyond the boundary lines and struck the glass pane right after the billboard.
In the third and final ODI on Friday, New Zealand narrowly overcame Ireland to sweep the series 3-0. The Dublin game was an exciting one that had fans guessing until the very last ball. Despite 719 runs being scored overall, there was just one run that separated the two teams after the full 100 overs. The game provided plenty of entertainment for the spectators, from Curtis Campher’s sensational run-out to Blair Tickner’s dramatic last over.
Tom Latham six-foot-tall glass window-breaking stunt also caught the attention of the onlookers. So the southpaw danced down the track and blasted an Andy McBrine delivery over long-on for a six on the first ball of the 19th over. The glass pane that followed the advertisement board was struck by the ball as it bounced just beyond the boundary lines.
