Zimbabwe vs Ireland Preview

  • In a game played in Harare, Ireland defeated Zimbabwe with ease.
  • Harry Tector, Stephen Doheny, and Joshua Little all performed admirably for Ireland.
  • In the second game of the series, Tendai Chatara, Innocent Kaia, and Gary Balance all put in great performances for Zimbabwe.


At a 1-1 tie in the series, Zimbabwe and Ireland square off on Monday at the Harare Sports Club in the third and final ODI. With a victory of three wickets on Wednesday, the hosts took a 1-0 series lead before Ireland triumphed on Saturday by a score of 46 runs. Beginning at 09:15 local time, the game.

It was unexpected that Zimbabwe made three changes for the match on Saturday, considering a win would have given them the series. They don’t appear to be as powerful a team without their captain, Craig Ervine.

Ireland finally put an end to their string of ODI losses, and they will now enter this match with optimism. They have no reason to be hesitant going into this game.

Zimbabwe vs Ireland Weather Report, Toss Prediction, and Pitch Report

It will be gloomy and humid in Harare once more, and thunderstorms won’t be far from the Sports Club. The highest point will be 23 degrees.

In each of the series’ games thus far, Zimbabwe has won the toss and opted to field. Despite the fact that Ireland triumphed on Saturday by electing to bat first, we believe that both captains will decide to field if they win the toss.

Since the wicket has been reliable throughout this series, we anticipate that a score of 300 will be just above average. A good pace and some surface turns are present.

Zimbabwe Team News & Probable Playing XIs

Before the second ODI on Saturday, Zimbabwe made three changes. In place of the hurt Craig Ervine, Wesley Madhevere, and Wellington Masakadza came Chamu Chibhabha, Tadiwanashe Marumani, and Tendai Chatara. Given that Sikandar Raza is once again leading the team, Ervine is also anticipated to miss this ODI.

Zimbabwe is the favourite to win this match.


We anticipate a thrilling series finale on Monday since this entire tour—which has included three IT20s and two ODIs—has been really competitive. The possibility that the weather will play a role will further heighten the tension in Harare. Our forecast is that Ireland will occasionally win the match, and Zimbabwe will struggle mightily to remain in it with both the bat and the ball. Zimbabwe, though, has triumphed in these games’ pivotal moments, hence we are picking them to win the last ODI.
