ZIM vs IRE Betting Tips

  • Gary Ballance hit 52 runs from 67 balls on Saturday and we are backing the left-hander to be ZImbabwe’s highest run scorer in this match. With the ball, Tendai Chatara impressed with figures of 3-51 and he is our pick for Zimbabwe’s top wicket taker against Ireland on Monday.
  • Harry Tector scored 76 runs from 61 balls in the second ODI and is in brilliant form in this format. He is a strong choice for Ireland’s highest run scorer in this game. With the ball, Josh Little took 4-38 on Saturday and the left-arm quick is our tip for Ireland’s top wicket taker in this third ODI.
  • The middle-order batter has been hitting centuries and half-centuries for fun in ODIs. We recommend backing Harry Tector to score over 31.5 runs in this match.

ZIM vs IRE 3rd ODI Match Prediction & Betting Tips

With the series level at 1-1, Zimbabwe and Ireland go head to head in the third and final ODI at the Harare Sports Club on Monday. The hosts went 1-0 up in the series with a three wicket win on Wednesday before Ireland came out on top by 46 runs on Saturday. Read on as we preview this decisive game. The match gets underway at 09:15 local time.

It was a surprise to see Zimbabwe make three changes for Saturday’s game when a victory would have seen them complete a series win. Without their captain, Craig Ervine, they do not look as strong a side.

Ireland finally put a stop to their run of defeats in ODIs and will now come into this game looking forwards. They have no reason to be un-confident ahead of this match.

ZIM vs IRE Match Toss Prediction

Zimbabwe have won the toss and chosen to field in both games of the series so far. Although Ireland won from batting first on Saturday, we predict that both skippers will choose to field first if they win the toss.

ZIM vs IRE, Harare Sports Club Pitch Report

It has been a consistent wicket throughout this series and once again we expect a score of 300 to be just above par. There is good pace and some turn in the surface.

Harare Weather Report

Once again, it will be cloudy and humid in Harare with thunderstorms never too far away from the Sports Club. The temperature will peak at 23 degrees.

Zimbabwe Team News & Playing 11

ZIM Team News

There were three changes for Zimbabwe ahead of the second ODI on Saturday. In came Chamu Chibhabha, Tadiwanashe Marumani and Tendai Chatara for the injured Craig Ervine, Wesley Madhevere and Wellington Masakadza. Ervine is expected to miss this ODI also with Sikandar Raza again captaining the team.

ZIM Key Players

  • Gary Ballance- the left-handed, former England batter, hit his first half-century for Zimbabwe in the last game. He will want to add more boundaries to his game after scoring only two in the second ODI.
  • Sikandar Raza- the all-rounder is a fine player and is not adversely affected by the captaincy. He is capable of single-handedly winning this ODI with either bat or ball.
  • Tendai Chatara- the 31 year old right arm fast medium bowler opened the bowling but picked up his wickets later in the innings. He dismissed Harry Tector, George Dockrell and Curtis Campher on Saturday.

ZIM Team Form

Zimbabwe’s winning run in ODIs came to an end after two victories over Australia and Ireland.

Ireland Team News & Playing 11

IRE Team News

There was only one change for Ireland ahead of Saturday’s second ODI with Murray Commins, as expected, coming into the team for Andy Balbirnie who was out with concussion and will also miss this match. We anticipate an unchanged XI on Monday.

IRE Key Players

  • Paul Stirling- the stand-in skipper hit 45 runs from 61 balls in the second ODI with the opener looking to up his strike-rate when he got out. He is always a batter who other teams fear.
  • Harry Tector-  the Harry Tector incredible run of ODI batting form continues. He hit eight boundaries in Saturday’s innings and now averages 53.55 in this format.
  • Josh Little- the 23 year old quick bowler took the Player of the Match Award on Saturday and will be relishing getting another opportunity at the same batters on the same pitch in this game. 

IRE Team Form

Ireland ended a run of four successive ODI defeats with the convincing win on Saturday.

Who will win Zimbabwe vs Ireland 3rd ODI Match?

Although there is pace in the pitch, scoring freely is hard and that allows the bowlers to get on top. The additional experience of batting in Harare could be crucial for Zimbabwe in this game.

ZIM vs IRE Top Team Batsmen

We recommend Gary Ballance, Sikandar Raza and Ryan Burl with the bat for Zimbabwe. Burl has scored exactly 100 runs across the two innings in the series so far. Raza has experience playing in all conditions and has a top ODI score of 141.

Harry Tector, Paul Stirling and Stephen Doheny are our tips with the bat for Ireland. Stirling has been a permanent player at the top of Ireland’s ODI batting for over 15 years and has a top score of 177 in this format. Doheny hit 84 in only his second ODI on Saturday.

ZIM vs IRE Top Team Bowlers

Sikandar Raza, Tendai Chatara and Richard Ngarava are our bowling picks for Zimbabwe. Raza went wicketless in the last game but kept the run-rate down with Ireland’s batters taking few chances off his bowling. Ngarava has taken five wickets against Ireland across the ODIs and IT20s.

We are backing Josh Little, Harry Tector and Mark Adair with the ball for Ireland. Little and Adair took six wickets across Saturday’s game and will both be dangerous bowling with the new ball again on Monday. Tector has six wickets on this tour and will hope his batting form can rub off on his bowling form in this format.

🏆 Zimbabwe vs Ireland Prediction

This entire tour (3x IT20s and 2x ODIs so far) has been very competitive and we expect a great finale to the series on Monday. The weather could well play a part which will only add to the drama in Harare. Our prediction is for Ireland to go ahead at times and Zimbabwe to have to work really hard with both bat and ball to stay in the game. However, Zimbabwe have won the big moments of these matches and we are backing them to win this final ODI.
