Match and Pitch Condition
Weather: The weather is expected to be clear with the maximum temperature expected to be 24°C during the match.
Pitch Condition: The pitch of the university ground has assisted bowlers so far and is expected to be of the same kind again. Zimbabwe women have so far defeated Ireland women in both matches they have faced each other in the series.
A score of 250 can be considered as a par score by either of the team batting first.
- They might bring in their all-rounder Mary-Anne Musonda after resting her in the last match. She might come in place of Pellagia Mujaji.
- Rest of the squad is expected to remain same that played in the last game.
- Their captain Laura Delany is likely to be back for this clash after missing out the last game. She is expected to come in place of Rebecca Stokell or Louise Little.
- They performed well with the bat in the last match against South Africa Women although they lost the match.
- So, the same lineup can be expected for this match.
