It was a fascinating start to the 3-match series as New Zealand snatched a win from a situation of hopelessness to defeat hosts Ireland by 1 wicket. In one of the most fascinating ODI games in recent memory, the Irish side dominated major parts of the game only to lose it in the final 10 overs. They would be hoping for a strong comeback and wish to level the series here.  

Ireland has never defeated New Zealand in an ODI game in the past and they would have to break this miserable record. The side would feel a lack of confidence after the New Zealand tail denied them a win in the 1st ODI. The visitors shall aim to come up with a better show as the side seemed a bit complacent in the last game. Having seen a good battle already we expect to see a closer contest than what we would have imagined during the start of the series. 

Ireland Preview

Andrew Balbirnie has good reasons to feel upset as his side wasted an opportunity for a historic win. Having more than 300 runs on the board and the opponents struggling at 120 with half the side back in the dressing room the Irish skipper would have counted his opportunities. But they allowed the game to drift away with poor bowling. Balbirnie needs to draw positives out of the last game and aim at leveling the series here.  

Paul Stirling and Andrew Balbirnie shall look to set up a good opening wicket stand here after missing out in the last game. Harry Tector played a gem of a knock, and he will look to add runs with Andy McBrine and Curtis Campher who contributed to the last game. Lorcan Tucker, George Dockrell, and Simi Singh have good batting abilities and they would look to add runs down the order in this game.  

Their bowlers were brilliant in the first 30 overs only to waste the opportunity in the final 20 overs of the game. The side would need Mark Adair and Craig Young to do well with the new ball as well as in the death overs. Campher and Singh did well in the last game, and this would add to their confidence. The likes of Joshua Little and McBrine shall need to come up with better performances.

Ireland Predicted Playing XI:

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

New Zealand Preview

It was a wake-up call for Tom Latham’s side in the last game as they nearly suffered their first loss against Ireland. The side was complacent to start with and paid the price only to be rescued by Michael Bracewell playing the innings of his life. The side would look to come out with a more determined performance in this game and take the series 2-0. They can’t afford to take the Irish side lightly.  

Martin Guptill did well in the last game, and he would look to set up a strong opening wicket stand with Finn Allen. The middle-order fared poorly, and the side would need runs from Will Young, Henry Nicholls, and Lathan in this contest. Michael Bracewell shall look to start from where he ended in the last game and add quick runs along with Glenn Phillips and Ish Sodhi.  

Their bowling attack would look to improve the show here and the side would like to see Matt Henry and Lockie Ferguson make good use of the conditions. Blair Tickner and Sodhi bowled lots of poor deliveries in the middle overs and they will look to improve on that here. Bracewell and Phillips are well suited for these conditions and the side would like them to deliver the goods.

New Zealand Predicted Playing XI:

Tom Latham (c & wk), Martin Guptill, Henry Nicholls, Glenn Phillips, Will Young, Finn Allen, Matt Henry, Lockie Ferguson, Blair Tickner, Ish Sodhi, Michael Bracewell

Weather Conditions

We expect to see overcast skies over Dublin on July 12 and the game may be disrupted due to rain. The batting conditions would be tougher as compared to the last game as fast bowlers will get to move the ball and make it tough to score runs. The side batting first would be happy with 280 runs or more on the board in these conditions.

Venue Details

The Village, Dublin is a small ground, and the shorter boundaries make it a paradise for batsmen. The pace and bounce on this surface are true that allow batsmen to play strokes. Fast bowlers also enjoy bowling on this surface as the ball moves in the air and off the surface, but spinners don’t enjoy much assistance from this surface as the ball doesn’t turn much.

Toss: To Bowl

We have seen big scores at this venue in the last five ODI games that have been played. It is a good surface to bat on and set up a big score. However, the weather conditions are expected to be tough in this game and the side winning the toss would like to use the weather by opting to bowl first.

Ireland had started as underdogs in this series, but the side produced a great performance in the last game to reignite the interest. They have a good bunch of players, but the side lacks the killer instincts which was on display in the last game where they threw away a game they had nearly won. New Zealand won’t be complacent in this game as they had been in the last one. The side would come hard at the Irish and this makes them favorites to win this contest.
