The first ZIM vs IRE T20I will be played in Harare on December 7. The match starts at 7.30 pm IST. Harare will host all the three T20Is followed by a three-match ODI series. Zimbabwe and Ireland will play six games within 10 days.

Zimbabwe will host Ireland for a full-fledged white-ball series. Sikandar Raza will lead the African nation. The hosts will look to bounce back quickly after failing to qualify for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 held in the West Indies and the United States. Zimbabwe finished third in the seven-team Africa Region Qualifier as Namibia and Uganda qualified for the main tournament.

Ireland will be led by Paul Stirling who took over as the white-ball skipper of the side from Andrew Balbirnie. The Irish squad has a nice group of batters and all-rounders making a strong top six. Josh Little, Mark Adair, and Craig Young lead the bowling attack.

Zimbabwe’s failure to qualify for the ODI World Cup 2023 and the T20 World Cup 2024 highlights their sorry state of affairs in cricket. The side will look to draw some inspiration from how they played in the T20 World Cup 2022 in this home series.
