IRE vs ZIM Dream 11 Prediction

Despite losing the T20I series by a 2-3 margin, Zimbabwe have won the last T20I and the first ODI consecutively. The return of the senior players like Brendan Taylor, Sean Williams and Sikandar Raza also had a positive impact in the first ODI as Zimbabwe produced a clinical all-round display.

IRE vs ZIM Dream 11 Fantasy Tips 2021

There isn’t much to choose between these two sides even though Zimbabwe ran away victors by a comfortable margin on Wednesday. Ireland have a better all-round side while Zimbabwe outdo their opponents with a stronger batting line-up. Ireland will be expected to bounce back and level the series on Friday

IRE 2021 Captain (Andy Balbirnie)

Irish skipper Andrew Balbirnie’s iffy form against Zimbabwe continued as he only made 12 runs in the first ODI. Balbirnie will need to fire if Ireland are going to draw level.

Andrew Balbirnie in ODIs: 2388 runs from 82 matches

ZIM 2021 Captain (Craig Ervine)

Zimbabwe captain Craig Ervine carried his form from the T20I series to the first ODI as he struck a crucial 64-run knock. Ervine is one of the most experienced batsmen for Zimbabwe

Craig Ervine in ODIs: 2680 runs from 97 matches

Man of the Match in IRE vs ZIM

Former Zimbabwe skipper Sean Williams is a crucial all-rounder for the side. He came up with an all-round performance by producing 33 runs and two wickets

Sean Williams in ODIs: 3991 runs and 74 wickets from 137 matches

IRE Top Picks

Simi Singh

All-rounder Simi Singh is an under-rated performer for the Irish side especially in ODI cricket. He had a quiet outing in the first ODI with just one scalp

Simi Singh in ODIs: 546 runs and 35 wickets from 31 matches

William Porterfield

Former Ireland captain William Porterfield did well in the first ODI with 75 runs. He has found some form recently after a rough phase over the last 18-24 months.
