IRE vs ZIM Dream11 Prediction, Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips for the 1st ODI, Zimbabwe tour of Ireland, 2021.
Ireland vs Zimbabwe will be played in the 1st ODI at the Civil Service Cricket Club, Belfast.
IRE vs ZIM 1st ODI Match Preview
After the T20I series, Ireland will be hosting a 3-match ODI series. They played brilliantly in the T20I series and won the series by 3-2.
This series does not have much importance for either team and will look to test some new players who are yet to play a game.
Paul Stirling was brilliant in the T20I series and is in red hot form with the bat. Andrew Balbirnie, who was average in the T20I series will be a player to watch out for in this series.
With the ball, Craig Young along with Barry McCarthy and Mark Adair will be the key bowlers. Simi Singh will be their key spinner. They will look to continue their good form from the T20s to the ODIs.
They will head into the ODI series with a win in the last game. Their senior pros were in the squad for the T20 series but for some reason did not play any games. If they are available they will play.
They have improved a lot with both bat and ball and will look to at least win the ODI series and end the tour on a high.
They lost their last series against Bangladesh but was surely great learning for the group. Wesley Madhavere, who was very poor in the T20I series, can be a player to watch for in the ODI series.
With the bat, Craig Ervine and Ryan Burl will handle the middle order whereas Sikander Raza will be their finisher. With the ball, Blessing Muzarabani will be their key pacer along with Luke Jongwe. Ryan Burl and Madhavere will be their key spinners.
