The batsmen once they get settled can play their shots easily at this venue. Spin bowling can change the course of the fixture in the middle overs. Anything between 150-160 would be a par score first innings score on this pitch.

To conclude, under normal circumstances, the team winning the toss should opt to bowl first as Zimbabwe did in the previous encounter.

Zimbabwe Team Form

Craig Ervine did a wonderful job with his captaincy in the last game. Zimbabwe is on the track to winning the second T20i and also the series at home. Sean Williams contributed crucial runs and was the highest run-scorer in the first match of the series. The batting attack of Zimbabwe looks balanced with Sean Williams and Wesley Madhevere in the squad.

The bowling department has had changes but even without Sikandar Raza, Zimbabwe is doing great with their bowling.

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 first 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 1.58 while the odds in favour of Ireland are 2.384. 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

Sean Williams performed phenomenally well in the previous match for team Zimbabwe. He accumulated 34 runs in the last match with a strike rate of 113.33. Sean Williams is a safe bet from Zimbabwe’s unit.

The previous T20 match wasn’t a great time for Ireland as they lost against Zimbabwe by 5 wickets. Gareth Delany 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.

Craig Ervine, the captain of Zimbabwe in the T20i series can be seen scoring runs in the forthcoming match against Ireland.

Zimbabwe vs Ireland Top Team Bowlers

Richard Ngarava was the second-highest wicket-taker of the previous match with 2 wickets and an economy of 6.7. He might take 2 or more wickets for Team Zimbabwe in the 2nd T20i.

Tendai Chatara, 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 T20is. He might once again prove why he is the highest wicket-taker for Ireland.

Prediction Author

This will be the first T20i series of the year 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.
