If the first ODI game of the 3-match series threw in a surprise, the second game followed the usual script of Ireland succumbing under pressure and getting dismissed for a small total. The hosts handed over a 3-wicket win to the New Zealanders and also lost the series 0-2 with the final game to go. Ireland would aim to come out of their poor form and win the last game to avoid a whitewash.  

The Irish side has had a poor run in this format of the game in recent years and the side would be down on confidence. They have never defeated New Zealand in this format of the game, and they will need to play out of their skins here. New Zealand has enjoyed a good run in ODIs winning the last nine out of ten games the side has played and shall like to ride this momentum.

Ireland Preview

After having shown promise in the opening game of the series, Andrew Balbirnie’s side suffered a big loss in the last game owing to a poor show with the bat. Their batting form has been a big concern for the side as key players have been inconsistent. Balbirnie would be looking for a face-saving win in this game and carry confidence into the T20 games. They would need their batsmen to deliver to put up a challenge for New Zealand.  

Paul Stirling and Andrew Balbirnie have failed in both games and the side would need them to fire at the top to be in a comfortable position. In the middle order, the side would like to see Harry Tector, Andy McBrine, and Curtis Campher build partnerships as the Kiwis have a very good bowling attack. George Dockrell played well down the order in the last game, and he would look to build partnerships with Lorcan Tucker and Simi Singh.  

Their bowlers have done well with the new ball in both games, and they would like to see early wickets from Mark Adair and Craig Young. Early strikes would trouble the Kiwis as their top order has looked vulnerable. McBrine and Joshua Little shall have to bowl well in the middle overs. Simi Singh and Campher bowled well in the last game and a similar show would benefit the team.

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

Tom Latham would be happy to have taken an unassailable lead in the series. However, this hasn’t been as much of a dominating show from the side as was expected before the start of the series. Their top order hasn’t been in the best of form. Latham would be looking for a dominating show from their top-order as they aim to take the series 3-0 before the start of the T20s.  

The side would like to see a good show from Martin Guptill and Finn Allen at the top as in both games the side has lost early wickets. Will Young and Henry Nicholls must do well in the middle order and build partnerships with Tom Latham who played an important knock in the last game. The side would expect quick runs from Michael Bracewell and Glenn Phillips as they are good hitters of the ball.  

The bowling attack made a big comeback in the last game after being criticized for its performance in the 1st ODI. Jacob Duffy and Matt Henry bowled well with the new ball and the same would be expected from them. Bracewell and Mitchell Santner troubled the Irish batsmen, and they would be confident. Phillips and Blair Tickner make this a good 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, Blair Tickner, Jacob Duffy, Michael Bracewell

Weather Conditions

The skies over Dublin would be mostly clear on July 15. We expect to see slightly challenging batting conditions at the start of the game. The wicket would ease as the game progresses. Batsmen shall need to play to the merit of the ball on this surface. A score of 280 runs would be a good total at this venue.

Venue Details

The Village, Dublin has shorter boundaries, but the outfield is heavy. Batting conditions are good here as the ball comes to the bat nicely and we have seen big scores being made here in the past. The wicket aids the fast bowlers with the new ball. There isn’t much on this track for the spinners and they have to rely on their variations to do well at this venue.

Toss: To Bowl

The wicket has favored the bowlers at the start of the game, and it has gotten better as the game has progressed. A target score in mind is great to have on this kind of surface. The side winning the toss in this game shall not have any hesitation in opting to bowl first in this game.

Ireland is staring at another series loss. Their key players especially openers have failed in both the games and the side would like to see a better show from them. Bowlers are doing well for the side, and they would have to come up with good spells in this game. New Zealand shall be confident after the series win. They have never lost against Ireland, and this would make them favorites to win this game.
