Aberdeen: New Zealand followed up their 3-1 one-day series win over England with a record-breaking win over Ireland in the opening match of a triangular tournament also involving Scotland.

The Black Caps thrashed a makeshift Irish side by 290 runs here in what was the biggest margin of victory in the history of one-day international cricket, surpassing India's 257-run defeat of Bermuda at last year's World Cup.

New Zealand's total of 402 for two was also their highest one-day international total and an opening stand of 274 runs between Brendon McCullum and James Marshall was the fifth highest for any wicket.

In reply, Ireland were scuttled out for 112.
