Zimbabwe vs Ireland 2nd ODI Prediction Who Will Win 11 Oct 2015

Zimbabwe vs Ireland 2nd ODI is going to happen on October 11th. If someone did not give this series a lot of importance then they are regretting now. What a game the first ODI was. No one was sure which team was going to win the match until the very last moment. This is why people love ODI matches. One-sided matches are good, but only for the matches. But Zim vs Ireland first ODI was something that everyone would enjoy. It was one of the most entertaining ODI games in the recent history. Zimbabwe won the match only by two wickets. They are now 1-0 ahead in the series. But this win did not come easily to them; they had to fight for it still the last moment. The hosts will now be able to play the next game with a lot less pressure since they are already ahead in the series.

Last time these two teams played Ireland won and that is why Zimbabwe wanted to make it even. It is also their home series, so it was very important for them to win the first game. Zimbabwe captain Elton Chigumbura won the toss and elected to send the opposition to bat first. Now this was a rather interesting decision on his part as in last couple of matches that Zimbabwe batted last they lost the games. But since this was a home ground and the skipper knows the pitch more than anyone else, everyone thought that he might have a strong reason behind wanting to have a ball first.

Ireland captain William Porterfield did not look too unhappy hearing that his team is going to bat first. It looked like as if he also would have taken the same decision if he won the toss. Ireland openers came to bat with a lot of confidence. One of them was the captain himself. But unfortunately he was not able to give them his team a good start. He got out only when his individual score was 9 and he took 31 balls to make that run. So it was obviously not his best day. Ireland captain will probably want to forget this match and make it up in the Zimbabwe vs Ireland 2nd ODI. He is one of the best players in his team. It is very important that he gives the team a good start.

The other opener Paul Stirling was also flop and he only made 24. But the senior most batsmen in the team Ed Joyce who came at number 3 played a good knock of 53. The only other batsman who played well was the wicket keeper batsman Gary Wilson. He was not out at 70. Thanks to these two half centuries Ireland was able to make 219 in 8 over. This was not a big score, but it was not a bad score either. So the Ireland team had hope, all they had to do is ball accordingly to the plan.

Zimbabwe too did not have a good start and both their openers went back to the pavilion cheaply. But Craig Ervine and Sikandar Raza both made 60 each. It was a small total so two big scores were enough to win the match. But Ireland bowlers took a wicket at regular intervals and at one time it looked like that Ireland is going to win the match.

Zimbabwe vs Ireland 2nd ODI is now going to be even more exciting. This series is between two equal teams, so no one can say who will win the series now, let’s wait and watch.
