The 3rd ODI match between Ireland and Zimbabwe will be played on 13thSeptember at the Civil Service Cricket Club.
Zimbabwe having an unassailable lead of 1-0, a win in the final game would seal the deal for them. Hence, Ireland can only fight to level the scoreline.
As far as the proceedings of the series are concerned, Zimbabwe comprehensively won the first ODI by 38 runs. However, the Irish side put up a much better show in the following encounter and posted 282/8 while batting first on a challenging track. However, rain played a spoilsport and the game was called up. Hence, everything boils down to the final clash.
The Belfast track hasn’t been easy for batters. However, one can score runs by showcasing the correct application. It’s a 250-260 kind of a track and anything more than that it’s a bonus.
