Zimbabwe vs Ireland 1st ODI Prediction Who Will Win 09 Oct 2015

Zimbabwe vs Ireland 1st ODI Prediction Who Will Win 09 Oct 2015

Zimbabwe vs Ireland first ODI will be played on October 9th at Harare. Zimbabwe had two very mediocre home series against New Zealand and Pakistan. But they are two of the world’s best cricket teams. Ireland is now in Zimbabwe, and even though very recently Ireland improved their international record, they still cannot be counted among the best cricket teams. So this is a great opportunity for the Zimbabwe team to change their recent home series record.  If they can beat Ireland then this will be the much needed moral boost for the team. The time Zimbabwe selectors took to select the team against Ireland, it is clear that they are thinking about changing some players who are constantly failing to deliver good result for the team.

Ireland played an ODI against the Australian side a couple of months ago. Even though they did not win the game that match could not be called a one-sided match. According to some of the most famous cricket critics, this New Ireland team has a lot of young promising players. They can play well against any team of the world; all they need is a few international match experiences. William Porterfield, the captain of Ireland team is talented enough to play for any other international teams in the world. He is going to be a big asset for his team in this upcoming ODI series.  He is counted among one of the best left-handed opening batsmen right now. Then there is very experienced Ed Joyce, who can win the matches by both bowling and batting.  Apart from these two players, there are mostly newcomers in the team. But all those newcomers showed good performances in domestic cricket and that is why they are selected for the national side. One of the reasons Ireland cricket authorities wanted to arrange this Zimbabwe tour is because the condition of pitches in Zimbabwe is very different from the pitches of Ireland, and that is why they thought it will be a good experience for the team. If they win or even able to draw the series then this will be a big achievement for the team. They are the underdogs, all the pressure is on team Zimbabwe in this series. No one is expecting Ireland to win. So the visitors will be able to play Zimbabwe vs Ireland first ODI match without any kind of added stress.

On the other hand, it is completely different with the Zimbabwe team at the moment. The series against the Pakistan team also showed the world that there is a lack of unity between the team management.  A couple of days ago batting coach Andy Waller told the media that the Zimbabwe players could not care less about their team’s win or loss. They all only care about their individual performance and that is why it will be hard for the team to win against the teams like Pakistan. He also said that the Zimbabwe players overall lack passion for the win.  He went on to say that he does not think that Zimbabwe can do well in cricket in near future. He hopes Dave What more can change things, but it will still take time according to him.

Obviously this is not something that will please the Zimbabwe players and they want to prove in this series that what the batting coach said is not right at all. Zimbabwe vs Ireland first ODI will be a big test for them. The team is practising a lot and they are staying positive. So get ready for a very exciting series between the two equal teams.
