Time: 08 September, 03:00 PM (IST)
Venue: Civil Service Cricket Club – Belfast, Ireland
- Brendan Taylor should be back for Zimbabwe and there can be no better player to be backed as Zimbabwe’s top scorer. With the ball, Luke Jongwe is a genuine wicket-taker and will be keen to start well. He is our pick for Zimbabwe top wicket-taker.
- From Ireland camp, Andy McBrine was in staggering form against South Africa thus he can be backed as Ireland’s top run-scorer. With the ball, Mark Adair was sensational in the T20Is and will be keen to continue his form. He is a brilliant pick for Ireland top scorer.

Who will win today match: IRE vs ZIM ODI Match Fantasy Team
The return of Taylor, Williams and Raza will be a big boost for Zimbabwe but Ireland still, in these conditions, are favourite to start. They have a good all-round team and should win without much struggle unless Taylor, Williams perform exceptionally well.
IRE Key Players:
Andy Bilbirnie is a player more suited to this format of the game. He had a stellar series against South Africa and scored 174 runs in 3 games. He will be keen to have another fine series.
Stirling was in brilliant form in the preceding T20Is. His form of late has been very good and he can be backed to carry that into the ODIs against Zimbabwe as well.
Simi Singh will be very crucial with his all-around skills. He is someone who can come in and play crucial knocks down the order and can also bowl good spells of spin bowling.
ZIM Key Players:
Taylor is among the best Zimbabwe batters and a lot will rely on his form. If he has a good series, Zimbabwe may pull off an upset.
Williams is another key player who can be handy with the bat and ball. The southpaw provides stability to the middle order while is a handy spinner as well.
He is one bowler who can trouble the Irish batsmen and Zimbabwe would expect him to give his team few early breakthroughs.
IRE Team Form:
- Ireland tied their last series against South Africa.
ZIM Team Form:
- Zimbabwe lost their last series against Bangladesh 3-0.

Paul Stirling, Andy McBrine and William Porterfield are the three batters to back from Zimbabwe. All had a decent T20I series and were in good form against South Africa as well.

Mark Adair, Joshua Little and Craig Young are good choices from Ireland . Adair was on fire in the T20Is while Young and Little are also very good bowlers who can pick wickets in heaps. From Zimbabwe, Blessing Muzarambani, Sean Williams and Luke Jongwe are likley to trouble the Irish.
