Zimbabwe currently is leading in the series by defeating Ireland in the first match, while Ireland is hoping to register their first win and levelling up in the ODI series. We expect another nail-biting contest between both teams and this time they won’t be expecting rain to be a spoilsport in the game. Winning this series will give the team a sense of confidence for the ODI series after completing the ODI series.


  • Sikandar Raza played a phenomenal inning in the previous match. He was the second-highest run-scorer for Zimbabwe in the first ODI with 43 runs in 45 balls while chasing the target. We are backing him to be the highest run scorer for Zimbabwe in the next match on the 21st of January. Victor Nyauchi picked 2 wickets with an economy of 6.5 in 10 overs in the first match against Ireland and is our top pick for the highest wicket-taker for Zimbabwe.

  • Harry Tector crushed Zimbabwean bowlers in the first match of the series by scoring a fantastic 101 runs in 109 balls. We are favouring him to continue his form and be the highest run-scorer for Ireland in the second game. Graham Hume picked 2 wickets and was the second most economical bowler for his team in the second innings and he is our player for the top wicket-taker for Ireland.

  • We pick Sikandar Raza for the Player of the Match award as he averages 36.62 in the ODI format.

Zimbabwe vs Ireland Chance of Winning

Zimbabwe outshined Ireland in the first ODI by exhibiting a complete team performance. They restricted Ireland’s batsmen to 288 runs and then chased the target in 37 overs as the match was reduced to 37 overs due to rain and the target was 214 runs. Ireland last won an ODI series a year ago against West Indies. Andrew Balbirnie will again have to continue his form from the first game in the second ODI to level up the series by 1-1 against the hosts.

Zimbabwe and Ireland are playing their first ODI series of the year and both teams are looking to start their year with a series win as One Day World Cup qualifiers is just around the corner in July 2023. However, looking at the home advantage and their team performance in the 1st ODI we are rooting for Zimbabwe to win the 2nd ODI fixture on Saturday.

Our Prediction

After winning the first match of the ODI series Zimbabwe’s squad looks more eager to win the second ODI match. With the likes of Ryan Burl and Sikandar Raza, we can witness another win for Zimbabwe at Harare Sports Club. While Ireland performed poorly in the T20i series and is now in the 1st ODI they are in hope of improving their rank in the second ODI match on 21st January 2023. Considering the previous performances and player forms we are on the side of Zimbabwe to win the 2nd ODI match between Ireland and Zimbabwe.

Zimbabwe vs Ireland Match Toss Prediction

The pitch at Harare Sports Club, Harare has always been a well-balanced pitch as seen in all the 4 matches played over here in this tour. All 4 matches were won by the team bowling first at this venue. The pacers get a little bit of help with the new ball during the powerplay. The batsmen once they get settled at the crease can play their strokes easily on this surface. Anything between 250-260 would be a good score first innings score on this surface.

To conclude, under normal circumstances, the team winning the toss should elect bowling first the team did in every 4 matches played in this tour.

Zimbabwe Team Form

Craig Ervine did a wonderful job with his captaincy in this tour at home. Zimbabwe is on the mission of winning the second ODI match and the series after winning the T20i series at home against Ireland. Ryan Burl contributed crucial runs and was the highest run-scorer in the first ODI match of the series. The batting attack of Zimbabwe looks balanced as every batsman contributed to Zimbabwe’s win in the previous match on 18th January 2023.

The bowling department has had changes and was seen in a weak condition in the first ODI match. Zimbabwe would be looking to take more wickets in the 2nd ODI to increase their chances of winning.

Ireland Player List

Ireland squad – Gareth Delany, George Dockrell, Stephen Doheny, Fionn Hand, Graham Hume, Tyrone Kane, Barry McCarthy, Neil Rock, Harry Tector, Lorcan Tucker, Ben White, Andy Balbirnie ©, Mark Adair, Curtis Campher

Ireland Team Form

Ireland lost the T20i series and now again in the first ODI. They will need to win the next game to survive in the series. With Andrew Balbirnie being the captain of the team, he and his men will try their best to win the second game.

Zimbabwe vs Ireland Betting Odds

Both the teams are expected to come roaring in this match in their hunger to start the year with a win in the second match. All the cricket fans have a spellbinding game ahead of them.After assessing the team’s form and possible scenarios, the betting odds favour Zimbabwe. The odds that Zimbabwe will win are 1.675 while the odds in favour of Ireland are 2.19. These betting odds have been calculated based on the team’s performance in the previous matches, players’ records, pitch and other factors.

Zimbabwe vs Ireland Top Team Batsmen

Ryan Burl performed phenomenally well in the previous match for team Zimbabwe. He accumulated 59 runs in the last match with a strike rate of 143.9. Ryan Burl is a safe bet from Zimbabwe’s unit.

The previous ODI match wasn’t a great time for Ireland as they lost against Zimbabwe by 3 wickets. Andy Balbirnie was the highest run-scorer for Ireland in that match. We expect him to score some runs in this match and see some fine shots.

Sikandar Raza, the best player of Zimbabwe in the ODI series can be seen scoring runs in the forthcoming match against Ireland.

Zimbabwe vs Ireland Top Team Bowlers

Victor Nyauchi was the highest wicket-taker of the previous match with 2 wickets and an economy of 6.5. He might take 2 or more wickets for Team Zimbabwe in the 2nd ODI.

Sikandar Raza, again from the Zimbabwe camp can be seen using his skills and turning the game towards his side. He can be seen picking some crucial wickets for Zimbabwe.

We just cannot ignore Mark Adair who has been leading the bowling attack of Ireland in the ODIs. He might once again prove why he is the highest wicket-taker for Ireland.

Prediction Author

This will be the first ODI series of the year for both the teams and the teams would be excited about the future matches and register their first win of 2023. However, considering the odds and other factors, we are predicting that Zimbabwe will beat Ireland.

Our Verdict

Favorites to win:


After all the evaluation and assessment it can be said that team Zimbabwe is the favourite and has a higher chance of winning the game than Ireland.
