Ireland's total of 150 for nine was 36 short of the total they required.

Ireland's journey through the T20 World Cup has ended in the Super 12 group stages. 

They fell 35 runs short of New Zealand's total this morning after the black caps set a target of 185 in their innings.

Josh Little took a hat-trick of wickets with the ball in the 19th over.  

He's only the second Irish player to achieve the feat. 

Ireland's campaign took in big wins over the West Indies first to make the Super 12s, and then England.

Defeats in the last two rounds to Australia and New Zealand means their journey ends.

New Zealand will progress now to the semi finals.
