For Ireland Paul Stirling and William Porterfield will be the main man with the bat as these two were in good nick against Afghanistan in recent series. Paul Stirling had two half centuries and Porterfield scored one in the series against Afghanistan.
Paul Stirling hit half-centuries in both matches against Afghanistan in Ireland’s most recent ODI series and he also top-scored for the hosts in the Ireland Tri-Nation Series against Bangladesh and West Indies. Andy Balbirnie will also be the key for Ireland in this 1st ODI against Zimbabwe as he showed his batting skills by scoring a hundred against West Indies.
With ball Ireland will look upon Mark Adair, Rankin and Murtagh to do the things for team against Zimbabwe.
Zimbabwe team will again be relying on their big three players Brendan Taylor, Craig Ervine and Sikandar Raza. These top batsmen of Zimbabwe would like to continue their good form which they displayed in the series against Netherlands.
