|Match:||ZIM vs IRE – 2nd ODI|

|Venue:||Harare Sports Club, Harare|
|Toss:||Zimbabwe, Bowl 1st|
Pitch report: There is a glass sheen on the pitch which is helping to bind the pitch together. It is a dry pitch and not many cracks. The pitch for this one is the best for the series. It is a bit green but it is rolled nice and hard. It will have pace and bounce.
Sikandar Raza: We are going to have a bowl. Unfortunately Craig [Ervine] has got a thing with his finger, so he misses out. We don’t want to miss him out on the Tests, so a precautionary measure not to play him. Our bowlers thought did an exceptional job in the first ODI, lots of edges and inside-edges from the two centurions. Ideally we would like to have a few more wickets up front today as we have picked an extra seamer. It looks a dry pitch and expect a high-scoring game. Whatever they score, we have to score one more to win. We have three changes.
Paul Stirling: We would have bowled as well, in Harare if you win the toss and generally bowl first to make use of the help. It [the pitch] looks dry so potentially won’t be as tough. Over the last 18 months, we have had a lot of close games and we have come out on the wrong side, that’s something that we want to work on this year. We have to bat exceptionally well to get a big score. We have one change.
