IRE vs ZIM 2nd ODI Match Preview:

Zimbabwe will face Ireland in the 2nd ODI match of the three-match ODI series at Civil Service Cricket Club, Belfast.

Sikandar Raza’s late blitz and a clinical bowling performance helped Zimbabwe bag their second win in the ICC ODI Super League. Set 267, Ireland were kept to 228 as the visitors picked up a 1-0 lead in the three-match series with a 38-run victory.

Ireland, however, will look back at the contest as a missed opportunity as they went from being 163 for 2 in the 35th over to 218 for 8 by the 47th. William Porterfield (75) and Paul Stirling (32) started with a half-century stand but two quick wickets of Stirling and Andrew Balbirnie helped Zimbabwe stage a comeback in the game. Harry Tector stroked a brisk half-century, and made 71 with Porterfield, to set up the chase.

However, Luke Jongwe dismissed Porterfield to start Zimbabwe’s slide. George Dockrell (11), Simi Singh (3), Lorcan Tucker (14) and Andy McBrine (2) couldn’t quite cope up with the pressure of the asking rate and fell in quick succession to hurt Ireland’s chances.

Earlier, handy contributions from Craig Ervine, Brendan Taylor, and Raza lifted Zimbabwe to a challenging total despite the spinners giving away just 48 from their 20 overs. The Zimbabwe openers made a nervy start as Regis Chakabva was dropped on the second delivery. On the next ball, Ireland challenged an lbw appeal against Taylor but the batsman was saved courtesy umpire’s call. Chakabva fell for 2 but Taylor and Ervine made 71 for the second wicket to get the innings going.

Simi dismissed Taylor for 49 before Dion Myers huffed and puffed his way to seven of 22. Myers fell to McBrine as Zimbabwe slipped to 101 for 3 in 20 overs. Sean Williams and Ervine steadied the innings but there was another wobble as the visitors again lost the position of strength with two quick wickets.

Wesley Madhevere and Raza collaborated to score 44 for the sixth wicket in the 33 deliveries they faced but Madhevere was dismissed for 19. Raza’s assault meant Zimbabwe were able to score 54 runs in the last five overs, with 24 scored in the last two, to ensure the bowlers had a competitive total to work with.
