During the third One-Day International against Ireland, New Zealand was in full demolition mode. After winning the toss and electing to bat first, New Zealand amassed a massive 360-run first innings total thanks to Martin Guptill’s 18th ODI century and significant contributions from Henry Nicholls and Glen Phillips. Tom Latham struck a huge six of Andy McBrine that broke the window.
Both Tom Latham and Finn Allen scored more than 30 runs, with Latham impacting not only the game but also a window at the Malahide Cricket Club. Latham hit 30 off 26 balls, including three fours and a six.

In Dublin, the only six against off-spinner Andy McBrine was enough to shatter the glass. The incident occurred during the first delivery of the 19th over. McBrine bowled a full-toss on the stumps, allowing Latham to come down the pitch and clear the long-on boundary.
The ball crossed the rope but bounced briefly before crashing through the glass window. The spectators near the hospitality area quickly moved to the side to avoid being hit, but the window couldn’t because the ball had left a mark on it. Spark Sports in New Zealand posted the video with the caption, “Tom Latham breaking Irish hearts and windows.”. Here is the video of Tom Latham’s Six that broke the window.
Ireland’s score of 360 appeared to be a little lofty. However, the hosts rose to the occasion and nearly won the series against the Kiwis. Ireland was cruising with Paul Stirling and Harry Tector at the crease, but New Zealand won the series 3-0 by winning the final match of the series by one run.
