  • The series will be challenging for the Irish as they will be competing with one of the best teams in the world. It has recently played a three-match ODI series with West Indies and the results were very encouraging for the team. Ireland lost the first match, however, won the next two and consequently the series 2-1. Andy McBrine was marvelous in the series and nominated as man of the series. He grabbed 10 wickets and scored 128 runs.
  • To defeat a good team improves morale a lot. The team will obviously try to maintain the momentum of the win, in this new upcoming series. Andrew Macbrine can show good cricket in both bowling and batting. In batting specifically, Paul Sterling and Harry Tector can smash Kiwi bowlers. In bowling, Craig Young can take wickets along with McBrine.

New Zealand

  • New Zealand played with the Netherlands in March/ April this year. Kiwis whitewashed the opponent easily. They won by a huge margin of 7 wickets, 118 and 115 runs in the three ODIs respectively. Will Young was selected as Man of the Series for his 224 runs including two centuries.
  • Competing with a team like Ireland will not be an issue for New Zealand. However, the situation may get bounced back if Ireland retaliated. We have seen it in the case of West Indies vs Ireland. The key players who can perform in the series with the bat include, first of all, Will Young, who is in his best form. Other than him Tom Latham and Guptill are favorites. In bowling, Matt Henry can tear the batting of the opponent apart. In the last 5 matches, he got 11 wickets at an economy of 3.7 only. Sodhi can be a helping hand for the team as well.
