This match presents ample opportunity for fans of cricket betting websites to look into fantasy cricket and match predictions. How can you improve your odds?
Understanding a team’s form and past performance helps determine the likelihood of their winning. Increasing your odds depends on knowing which players are likely to perform in which ways.
Ireland’s Cricket Team
Currently ranked 12th in the ICC’s ODI rankings, Ireland has performed strongly in their last five games against Zimbabwe, winning 4 out of the 5. They also notably scored highest (331/8) against Zimbabwe in Hobart in 2015.
After defeating South Africa, the team captain, Andy Balbirnie, admitted to the historicity of the win that lifted the team to #7 in ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League.
Therefore, it is safe to assume that Ireland will continue bringing their A-game in the 3rd ODI.
We suggest rewatching old matches and paying particular attention to Paul Stirling and Harry Tector’s batting styles for better cricket odds live. Similarly, Simi Singh and Josh Little are Irish bowlers to watch during the match.
Zimbabwe’s Cricket Team
Zimbabwe ranks just below Ireland at 13 in the ICC ranking. Zimbabwe only won once in the last five matches against Ireland, while they won six games against Ireland. While you can expect a good match in the 3rd ODI, they seem unlikely to win.
If you are banking on Zimbabwe, observe batters Brendan Taylor and Sean Williams. Additionally, you should also watch out for Blessing Muzarabani and Donald Tiripano’s bowling expertise. These top players may just turn Zimbabwe’s tide.
Squads in the 3rd ODI
Ireland: Andy Balbirnie (captain), Mark Adair, Curtis Campher, George Dockrell, Graham Kennedy, Josh Little, Andy McBrine, Barry McCarthy, William Porterfield, Neil Rock (wicketkeeper), Simi Singh, Paul Stirling, Harry Tector, Lorcan Tucker (wicketkeeper), Craig Young.
Zimbabwe: Ryan Burl (captain), Regis Chakabva (Wicketkeeper), Tendai Chatara, Craig Ervine, Luke Jongwe, Tinashe Kamunhukamwe, Wessley Madhevere, Tadiwanashe Marumani, Wellington Masakadza, Tarisai Musakanda, Blessing Muzarabani, Dion Myers, Richard Ngarava, Milton Shumba, Sikandar Raza, Brendan Taylor (wicketkeeper), Donald Tiripano, Sean Williams.
Ireland vs Zimbabwe: Who will win?
Based on past performance, we predict that Ireland is likely to come out on top of this match, too. Zimbabwe has showcased a solid performance, putting up a fight against the host. However, considering Ireland is still riding high from their victory against South Africa, they seem to have the confidence and skill to take them ahead.
