IRE vs ZIM 2nd ODI Match Preview


After winning the T20I series, Ireland faced disappointment in the first match as they lost by 38 runs.

William Porterfield scored a brilliant fifty, and Paul Stirling also batted well, scoring some runs. At No.3, skipper Balbirnie got out early. Harry Tector scored a fifty in the middle-order, but the remaining batsmen got out without scoring much. 

All the bowlers who bowled in the first match managed to pick up a wicket each. Simi Singh and Andy McBrine bowled well, controlling the flow of runs. The middle-order batting needs to be improved if they want to win the series.


Zimbabwe has started the series on a good note by winning the first match comfortably by 38 runs. It was an equal effort from both the batsmen and bowlers.

Brendan Taylor, as an opener, batted well but was unlucky to miss the fifty by one run, but his partner Chakabva got out early. At No.3, skipper Ervine scored a brilliant half-century. In the middle-order, Sean Williams scored some crucial runs, and Sikandar Raza scored a quick fifty and provided an excellent finish to the team.

The bowling department also made a brilliant contribution by picking up wickets and controlled the flow of runs. Blessing Muzarabani picked up four wickets in the last match. Wellington Masakadza and Sean Williams managed to pick up two wickets each. 

Zimbabwe needs to continue the momentum, and they can easily win the series.
