The Zimbabwe vs Ireland ODIs 2023 will start on December 13 and run till December 17 in Harare, Zimbabwe.

After a dismal and disappointing T20I series, Zimbabwe will host Ireland for a three-match ODI series at home. Currently, the hosts are ranked 11th in the ICC Men’s ODI rankings, while Ireland are placed 13th in the rankings.

As far as the head-to-head battle is concerned, the hosts have an even battle with the Irish contingent in the 50-over format, winning eight games each out of 19. Meanwhile, two games ended in no result with a game also ending in a tie.

Zimbabwe have named a new-look squad for the three upcoming ODIs. The hosts have named seven players who weren't part of the team that took part in the 2023 ICC Men's Cricket World Cup Qualifier in June and July.

Out of the seven - Takudzwanashe Kaitano, Tinashe Kamunhukamwe, Tanaka Chivanga, Faraz Akram, Brandon Mavuta, Milton Shumba and Tony Munyonga - only Akram is uncapped in ODIs.

After an astonishing T20I series, Harry Tector and George Dockrell will aim to shine in the upcoming ODIs. Meanwhile, Ireland have dropped their spin-bowling all-rounder Gerath Delany from the ODI squad.

As per the Zimbabwe vs Ireland ODIs 2023 schedule, the opening fixture of the series will be played at Harare Sports Club on December 13. The second and third ODIs are also scheduled at the same venue in Harare.
