|Date:||Jan 18 Wed, 2023|
|Time:||07:15 AM (GMT)|
|Venue:||Harare Sports Club, Harare|
|Toss:||Zimbabwe, Bowl 1st|
Pitch Report: Darlington doing the pitch report says, “The pitch is brown and hard, but I think there is moisture underneath it. The side which wins the toss is going to insert the opposition in. I think a score of 200-220 will be competitive here.”
Craig Ervine: We will have a bowl first. The pitch has been under the covers for a day or so, there will be a bit of moisture and the overhead conditions can help us. We expect the pitch to get a litttle bit better but there hasn’t been much sunshine, we expect it to get better as the game goes on. Sikandar Raza is back and Gary Ballance is also in. Tendai Chatara has been rested and Victor Nyauchi is in.
Andrew Balbirnie: We would have loved to bowl first. We gave a few new players opportunities and it was good to play in front of the packed crowds, hopefully it will be same in the ODIs. Josh Little, Lorcan Tucker, and Paul Stirling are in. We have a world cup at the end of the year and hopefully we will perform well and get good super league points.
Zimbabwe: Wesley Madhevere, Innocent Kaia, Craig Ervine(c), Gary Ballance, Sikandar Raza, Ryan Burl, Clive Madande(w), Wellington Masakadza, Brad Evans, Richard Ngarava, Victor Nyauchi.
Ireland: Paul Stirling, Stephen Doheny, Andrew Balbirnie(c), Harry Tector, Curtis Campher, George Dockrell, Lorcan Tucker(w), Andy McBrine, Mark Adair, Graham Hume, Joshua Little
