Zimbabwe vs Ireland 3rd ODI Prediction Who Will Win 13 Oct 2015

Zimbabwe vs Ireland 3rd ODI is on October 13th, but technically this game is not significant at all. Zimbabwe already won the 3 ODI series. They won first two games. But one cannot say that the wins came easily. Ireland could have won the matches too, it was that close. But in the end it was Zimbabwe’s experience in international cricket that worked in their favor. Ireland has arrived in world cricket that is for sure. No one can call them they are just visitors. This year they were able to put teams like Australia and Zimbabwe in trouble and that is not a bad achievement at all.

Zimbabwe won the toss and decided to go for bowling first. They won the first ODI by bowling first; their batsmen are in form, so no wonder the team was very confident about chasing a total. Ireland lost the first match, so obviously their batsmen looked little nervous at the beginning of the innings. However, both the openers settled in after a while, but it was team’s bad luck that captain William Porterfield got out at just the individual score of 8. The other opener Paul Stirling however scored a brilliant 72.  Niall o’ Brian and Gary Wilson also played brilliantly and thanks to them Ireland was able to score 268 in 50 over. It was a big total for any team and even though the pitch is made for high scores, over 250 runs are always tough to chase.  But in this case, the team needs to have very economical bowlers who will get regular wickets for the team. Ireland over the years managed to develop an ODI team that has some very good batsmen, but they are yet to find some good international bowlers. This is the reason they are still losing the games even after making big scores. There are no bowlers in their side who can help them defend 250 plus score.

Zimbabwe came to bat with a lot of confidence, they won the first ODI chasing 200 plus total; so they were sure that they will be able to chase the target successfully. But alas both their openers went back to the pavilion rather cheaply. Then Craig Ervine came at number 3, who probably played the best innings of his career so far. His 101 in 122 balls innings made it possible for Zimbabwe team to win the match. He remained unbeaten and later he was declared man of the match.

Zimbabwe vs Ireland 3rd ODI is not a game that will have any impact in the result of the series, but both the teams will fight it out for a win. If Zimbabwe wins the match then they will be able to finish the series with 3-0 which will be a great record. If Ireland wins the match then that will do a world of good as far as their confidence is concerned. They really played well in this series; it was unfortunate that they lost it.

Anyway, none of the teams is yet to make 300 plus score in this series and spectators always want a big scoring game like that. One thing is sure this was entertaining series, as in both the matches the result came at the last moment. None of the matches was one sided. So will the last game also be like that? Will Zimbabwe win the series 3-0? Or Zimbabwe will be able to win at least one match? A lot of questions and all will be answered on 13th. Don’t miss Zimbabwe vs Ireland 3rd ODI at any cost.
