Cricket Betting Tips and Match Predictions: Zimbabwe Women vs Ireland Women 2021 – 3rd ODI
The 3rd ODI of the Ireland Women tour of Zimbabwe 2021 will take place between Zimbabwe Women and Ireland Women at the Harare Sports Club, Harare, Zimbabwe on October 9th.
Current Form Ireland Women and Zimbabwe Women:
Ireland Women have bounced back from their defeat in the first match of the tournament and have now tied the series with Zimbabwe Women at 1-1.
Zimbabwe Women won the toss and elected to field first. Leah Paul and Gaby Lewis provided a spectacular start to Ireland Women as they put on a 135 run partnership for the first wicket. Gaby Lewis was dismissed at 65 by Nkomo.
Leah Paul continued to tonk the bowlers to all parts of the ground and smashed 95 in just 118 balls. The lower middle order provided the much needed momentum in the death overs and took Ireland Women’s total past the 280 run mark to 286 for 7 in 50 overs.
Chasing a huge total of 286, Zimbabwe Women got off to a slow start and they lost too many wickets early. At one point, they were 40 for 3, with their skipper Mary-Anne Musonda back in the pavilion. From here, it was a point of no return as Zimbabwe Women could not keep up with the required rate and the pressure simply started building up.
Josephine Nkomo tried to rescue the innings with her knock of 70 but it was not enough as wickets kept falling frequently at the other end and the required rate had gone out of control. In the end, Zimbabwe Women were restricted at 206 for 9, as they lost the match by 80 runs. Leah Paul was adjudged player of the match for her phenomenal performance with the bat.
Let’s have a look at the squads:
Ireland Women- Laura Delany (captain), Zara Craig, Georgina Dempsey, Sarah Forbes, Amy Hunter, Shauna Kavanagh, Gaby Lewis, Sophie MacMahon, Jane Maguire, Cara Murray, Leah Paul, Orla Prendergast, Celeste Raack, Rebecca Stokell, Mary Waldron.
Zimbabwe Women- Sharne Mayers, Pellagia Mujaji, Mary-Anne Musonda (c) , Ashley Ndiraya, Loren Tshuma, Josephine Nkomo, Modester Mupachikwa (wk), Tasmeen Granger, Precious Marange, Esther Mbofana, Nomatter Mutasa, A Sibanda
