Current Form Ireland Women and Zimbabwe Women:
Zimbabwe surprised the world yesterday with their big win over Ireland Women’s cricket team in the first ODI.
Zimbabwe Women won the toss and elected to field first. Ireland Women got off to a poor start as the opening pair only collected 28 runs for the first wicket. Gaby Lewis also fell for 24 after getting the start.
Captain Laura Delany took over the responsibility to bail the team in the middle overs. She smashed 88 off just 81 balls. The lower middle order batter Sophie MacMohan also played a lovely cameo of 29 in 13 balls to take Ireland Women to a dominating total of 253 for 8 in 50 overs.
Chasing 253, Zimbabwe Women got off to a forgettable start as both the openers perished within the 6th over. This is when captain Mary-Anne Musonda arrived at the crease. She looked at ease with the conditions and surface right from the word go. She would respect the good deliveries and hammer the bad balls. She knitted small but important partnerships in the middle order and ensured she did not lose her wicket before the chase was done. She remained unbeaten at 103 to eventually win the game for her side with 4 wickets in hand.
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.
