IRE vs NZ 2nd ODI Match Prediction & Betting Tips
The second ODI of the three game series between Ireland and New Zealand takes place at The Village, Malahide on Tuesday. The opener was an absolute classic and went down to the wire before the visitors won by 1 wicket and 1 ball remaining. As a result, there is plenty of anticipation across the globe for the second game. Read on as we preview this game. This ODI gets underway at 10:45 local time on Tuesday morning.
Ireland could not have got much closer to winning the ODI on Sunday and it will be interesting to see how they react in this game. Either they will be encouraged by the display and raise their game or will be incredulous that they lost.
New Zealand remain one of the strongest white ball sides in the world and have strength in depth to prove it. They will be very keen to ensure they get over the winning line in quicker time on Tuesday.

IRE vs NZ Match Toss Prediction
New Zealand won the toss and chose to field first on Sunday and we predict that both skippers will want to bat second if they win the toss ahead of this game.
IRE vs NZ Pitch Report
Although the pitch was not a bowlers’ dream, there were only spinners on both sides who did not pick up wickets in the opening game. We expect another surface which does something for the quick and medium pace bowlers.
There could be light rain early on but it will disappear and give way to partly sunny conditions and highs of 21 degrees in this match.

Ireland Team News & Playing 11
IRE Team News
The home side produced a very strong display in the field on Sunday and came very close to pulling off what would have been their most famous win on Irish soil. With the ball, Simi Singh was the only player not to take a wicket but he delivered 10 economical overs. We expect to see the same XI take the field in this ODI.
IRE Key Players
- Paul Stirling – Although he only lasted 10 balls and contributed only 5 runs in the opening ODI, it will make no difference to how he approaches this match. He is a big hitting batter who knows only one way to play the game.
- Harry Tector – After starring against India in the IT20s in June, the young middle order batter struck 14 fours and three sixes in his brilliant century on Sunday.
- Josh Little – After performing so well in recent years, there is always pressure on the left-arm quick. He dismissed Matt Henry in the first ODI and will be keen to make inroads at the top of the order in this match.
IRE Team Form
Although the defeat in the opening game of the series is hard to swallow, Ireland remain in good form and have won three of their last five ODIs.
Ireland Predicted Playing 11
Paul Stirling, Andrew Balbirnie (c), Andy McBrine, Harry Tector, Lorcan Tucker (wk), Curtis Campher, George Dockrell, Simi Singh, Mark Adair, Craig Young, Josh Little
New Zealand Team News & Playing 11
NZ Team News
Although Blair Tickner conceded 71 runs, he also took 2 wickets and we expect to see an unchanged XI from New Zealand for this second ODI. Five of the six bowlers used picked up wickets with only Michael Bracewell, who later won the game with the bat, going wicketless.
NZ Key Players
- Martin Guptill – The experienced opener struck six fours and a six in the opening ODI. It was the 55th time that he has passed 50 in this format.
- Michael Bracewell – The 31 year old all-rounder has been one of the few New Zealanders to emerge from this tour of England and Ireland with an enhanced reputation. He scored his first international century on Sunday.
- Lockie Ferguson – The right arm pace bowler returned the best figures of the New Zealand attack. He picked up his wickets at the top of the order, dismissing Paul Stirling and Andrew McBrine.
NZ Team Form
It was never meant to be as close as it turned out and it certainly looked like they would lose the game going into the final over on Sunday. However, New Zealand have now made it seven successive ODI wins.
New Zealand Predicted Playing 11
Martin Guptill, Finn Allen, Tom Latham (c) (wk), Will Young, Henry Nicholls, Glenn Phillips, Michael Bracewell, Ish Sodhi, Lockie Ferguson, Blair Tickner, Matt Henry

Ireland vs New Zealand Head to Head
Although the Black Caps maintained their 100% record over Ireland in this format in the opening ODI, it was by far their smallest winning margin. Previously, the closest Ireland had got was a 51 run defeat in May 2017.

Ireland vs New Zealand Betting Odds
The visitors were very strong favourites with the bookies ahead of the opening game but, as Sunday’s game was so tight, the odds have tightened a little ahead of this second ODI.
Who will win Ireland vs New Zealand 2nd ODI Match?
Harry Tector and Michael Bracewell were the most impressive batters on Sunday, both scored centuries with Martin Guptill (51) the only other player to go beyond 50. There should be some more big scores in this ODI.

Ireland vs New Zealand Prediction
We all expected Ireland to cause New Zealand a few scares but no one anticipated that they would go into the final over of the match as overwhelming favourites to win the opening game of the series. However, they were unable to get over the line and we think that will be critical to the rest of the series. We are backing New Zealand to win again.
New Zealand are favourites to beat Ireland at odds of 1.20
