Zimbabwe vs Ireland 3rd ODI Match Prediction & Betting Tips
With the series level at 1-1, Zimbabwe and Ireland go head to head in the third and final ODI at the Harare Sports Club on Monday. The hosts went 1-0 up in the series with a three wicket win on Wednesday before Ireland came out on top by 46 runs on Saturday. Read on as we preview this decisive game. The match gets underway at 09:15 local time.
It was a surprise to see Zimbabwe make three changes for Saturday’s game when a victory would have seen them complete a series win. Without their captain, Craig Ervine, they do not look as strong a side.
Ireland finally put a stop to their run of defeats in ODIs and will now come into this game looking forwards. They have no reason to be un-confident ahead of this match.

ZIM vs IRE Pitch Report
It has been a consistent wicket throughout this series and once again we expect a score of 300 to be just above par. There is good pace and some turn in the surface.
Once again, it will be cloudy and humid in Harare with thunderstorms never too far away from the Sports Club. The temperature will peak at 23 degrees.
