Ireland would start the three-match ODI series against New Zealand playing at their home ground The Village, Dublin. The hosts haven’t played well against stronger sides in recent years, and they will look to battle it hard out in this opening game. The New Zealanders would be looking for an early lead in the series after the poor performance the side put up in England.   

Ireland comes into the contest with a string of losses in their previous ODI games and this is likely to play on their minds as they would be up against a strong side. New Zealand has never lost a game against Ireland in the past and the side would have its confidence high going into this game. The hosts would have to produce a special effort to defeat New Zealand in this game.

Ireland Preview

Andrew Balbirnie would be aware of the challenge at hand. They have never defeated New Zealand in this format of the game and must play out of their skins here. The side has been producing good performances occasionally and Balbirnie would like to see a strong show by his players and not feel the pressure of playing against a strong team.  

William Porterfield has hung his boots and the side would feature a new opening combination in this game. Paul Stirling would have to take the lead and start well with youngster Stephen Doheny. The middle-order has the experience, and the side would like to see runs from Balbirnie, Curtis Campher, and Harry Tector. Simi Singh and Andy McBrine shall have to do the big-hitting towards the end of the innings.  

Their bowlers would have a tough challenge taking on a strong batting line-up. Joshua Little and Mark Adair must strike early for the side to be in a comfortable position in this game. Craig Young and Simi Singh shall have to do well in the middle overs given the depth the Kiwis have with the bat. Andy McBrine, Campher, and Stirling add variety to this attack.

Ireland Predicted Playing XI:

Andrew Balbirnie (c), Lorcan Tucker (wk), Curtis Campher, Mark Adair, Craig Young, Joshua Little, Paul Stirling, Harry Tector, Stephen Doheny, Simi Singh, Andy McBrine

Ireland Actual Playing XI:

Mark Adair, Simi Singh, Andy McBrine, Craig Young, Curtis Campher, George Dockrell, Joshua Little, Paul Stirling, Lorcan Tucker, Harry Tector, Andy Balbirnie

New Zealand Preview

Tom Latham is leading the side for this series, and he would be looking for an early lead. On paper the Kiwis are a much stronger side and Lathan would like his side to play aggressive cricket. Ireland has the habit of surprising their opponents at home and the New Zealand skipper wouldn’t like to see any complacency from her players in this game.  

Martin Guptill and Glenn Phillips are a formidable opening pair, and they would look to add quick runs in the early overs of the game.  Henry Nicholls shall have to steer the innings at No. 3 and add runs with Finn Allen and Tom Latham both of whom are good ODI players. Will Young is a good finisher, and he would look to add runs down the order with Mitchell Santner.  

Lockie Ferguson and Matt Henry have pace and they would enjoy the conditions here. The duo shall look to strike early in the game. Adam Milne and Blair Tickner would have to apply pressure on the Irish batsmen in the middle overs of the game. Santner brings lots of experience and makes it a strong bowling attack.

New Zealand Predicted Playing XI:

Tom Latham (c & wk), Martin Guptill, Henry Nicholls, Glenn Phillips, Will Young, Finn Allen, Matt Henry, Lockie Ferguson, Adam Milne, Blair Tickner, Mitchell Santner

New Zealand Actual Playing XI:

Weather Conditions

We expect to see clear skies over Dublin on July 10. The batting conditions would be good as we have seen high-scoring games here in the last couple of years. Fast bowlers will get to move the new ball which is a big advantage. The side batting first would be happy to have 300 runs on the board as run chases are difficult here. 

Venue Details

The Village, Dublin is a small ground and has shorter boundaries around the square region. Batsmen have always enjoyed batting on this surface as the ball comes to the bat nicely allowing them to play their strokes easily. There is assistance on this track for the fast bowlers, but spinners haven’t had the best of records at this venue.

Toss: To Bat

The last four ODI games here have seen sides batting first winning by big margins. This surface gets slower as the game progresses and makes big run chases extremely challenging. The side winning the toss in this game would like to take advantage of the conditions by batting first in this game.

Ireland would have to punch above its weight in this game. They have a good bunch of players by consistency has been a problem. Most of their batsmen don’t have experience in playing such good attacks and the side would have to bat well to win this game. New Zealand is a power-packed side. They have better resources in both departments of the game, and this would put them ahead in the contest.
