Ireland vs New Zealand 2nd ODI Tri-Nation Preview
New Zealand looking forward to open their account of Tri-Nation series 2017 playing against Ireland at Malahide. Kiwi team will play against Ireland for the 2nd time in their 721 ODIs as the New Zealanders played against Irish team back in 2008. That was a historic match when some currently experienced players took part against them including Daniel Vettori who was booming his career then, McCullum was young and Marshall.
In that match, New Zealand scored 402 runs off 2 and that was the only 400+ runs by New Zealand till date. Ross Taylor is the man who is able to survive from 2008 to the current match against Ireland. New Zealand will be playing against Ireland in the 2nd ODI without key players as Kane Williamson, Trent Bolt, Tim, Adam Milne and Corey are busy in IPL being played in India.
Ireland have the best chance to crush the weak batting lineup on tough batting conditions as captain Neil Broom along with James Neesham, Colin Munro and Henry Nicholls have been quite struggling with the consistency and fluency on ODI format of cricket.
The Irish team made their start in very professional and disciplined way before rain interrupted and shrinked their chances to upset Bangladesh. This time cricket experts are favoring the Irish team more on the behalf of their tough bowling and batting lineup as well as absence of many key players of New Zealand team.
