IRE vs NZ Match Details

Match: Ireland vs New Zealand, 1st ODI | New Zealand tour of Ireland

Date: Sunday, 10 July 2022

Time: 15:00 (GMT+5.5) / 15:30 (GMT+6)

Format: ODI

Venue: The Village, Dublin

IRE vs NZ Preview

  • The fact that New Zealand has defeated Ireland in all four of their one-day international matches gives them confidence.
  • Ireland has lost six of its last seven ODI matches and weighs heavily on their thoughts.
  • Ireland has a dismal track record at this location and has only had one victory in their last 10 one-day international matches (ODIs)


The first of three ODIs between Ireland and New Zealand is played at The Village in Malahide. The hosts haven’t participated in this format since January’s illustrious 2-1 victory over the West Indies. In March, New Zealand defeated the Netherlands 3-0. On Sunday morning at 10:30, the first ODI will begin.

Ireland has played well in one-day international cricket and competed fiercely with India in their last IT20 match. They benefit from playing at home, but New Zealand will be a formidable opponent.

Even without some of their best and most seasoned players, New Zealand has a formidable team travelling to Ireland. They will enter this match as heavy favourites, according to most analysts.

IRE vs NZ Weather Report

The entire ODI was quite humid but not particularly warm. Throughout this game, the temperature won’t rise past 19 degrees.

IRE vs NZ Match Toss Prediction

In the previous four ODI matches, teams that batted first won by sizable margins. The team that wins the toss in this game would wish to bat first to take advantage of the pitch.
