Date & Time: January 23, 12:45 PM IST

Telecast & Live Streaming: FanCode

Pitch Report:

The surface at the Harare Sports Club is a balanced one which aids both batters and bowlers. However, batting could get tricky early on in the contest and thus either skipper winning the toss may elect to bowl first. Any target over 280 runs will be a good score on this wicket.

Probable Playing XIs for ZIM vs IRE:

Zimbabwe (ZIM):

Wesley Madhevere, Innocent Kaia, Craig Ervine (c), Gary Ballance, Sikandar Raza, Ryan Burl, Clive Madande (wk), Wellington Masakadza, Brad Evans, Richard Ngarava, Victor Nyauchi

Ireland (IRE):

Paul Stirling, Stephen Doheny, Andrew Balbirnie (c), Harry Tector, Curtis Campher, George Dockrell, Lorcan Tucker (wk), Andy McBrine, Mark Adair, Graham Hume, Joshua Little

Probable Best Performers from ZIM vs IRE:

Probable best batter: Harry Tector

Tector has been in sublime form for the side with the bat in the 50-over ODI series against the Irish side. The batter has registered a half-century and a ton in both games with 176 runs to his name thus far. Tector will be on the lookout to maintain consistency and produce another big score in the 3rd ODI.

Probable best bowler: Joshua Little

Ireland’s pace spearhead Joshua Little has maintained his terrific form since the T20 World Cup 2022. The pacer has got five wickets already in two matches and has the potential to rack up a few more in the final ODI. The African nation will look to play him delicately in the final clash.
