Ireland Preview

Ireland posted a massive score of 282 runs in the last game with William Porterfield (67 runs) and Harry Tector (55 runs) making their second consecutive fifties in this series. Andrew Balbirnie (40 & 12 runs) and Paul Stirling (33 & 32 runs) making vital cameos with the bat. George Dockrell (28 runs) and Lorcan Tucker (32 runs) played quick fire knocks to finish the innings with a flourish.

Ireland bowlers bowled reasonable well with all six bowlers claiming wickets. Simi Singh and Andy McBrine combined together to put on the run choke in the middle overs with combined figures of 20-2-48-2 while the remaining bowlers gave runs consistently as the opposition put on a good score in the first match.

Top players to bet on:

Harry Tector – Tector has scores of 55 & 50 in the 2 matches played so far. He scored 55 runs off just 42 balls to t give surge to his team`s run rate in the last match and we expect him to continue the good work in this match too.  

Simi Singh – Simi Singh had bowling figures of 10-2-22-1 in the first match and never took the field in the second game due to rain. He will have a huge role to play in middle overs as the lead spinner.

Ireland Predicted Playing XI:

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

Weather Conditions

Belfast will have dark and gloomy weather with cool breeze with 60% chances of rain possibility. We expect to have some small interruptions in this match due to weather conditions.

Venue Details

Belfast is a good batting track with a fast outfield where a lot of runs are available. Bowlers need to execute their plans to perfection to restrict the batters. The pitch might slow down as the game progresses. We expect 260-280 runs to be scored in this match.

Toss: To Bat

Teams batting first posted a score of nearly 270 runs in both the matches and we expect both captains to bat first unless the rain clouds change their mindset.

Ireland batters made a strong comeback in the second match after a debacle in the first match and they will look to continue their purple patch with all the top-6 batters making contributions. Zimbabwe batters were better on the only time they batted and their bowlers gave way too many runs in the second match after a splendid first match. Ireland bowling attack lacks variety with a lot of medium pacers and they will need to more consistent with their line and lengths. We expect Ireland to win this match owing to their batting & home conditions on offer.

Ireland will win the match & level the series 1-1
