Recent Zimbabwe and Ireland abandoned due to rain after just 13 extreme overshoots

Only 13 overshoots were allowed as the rain uttered the last word in the final one-day international match between Zimbabwe and Ireland in Harare.

Z.After missing Saturday’s game with a hand injury, Imbabwe captain Craig Irvine surprisingly chose to strike despite the forecast for rain, but by 14:30 the rain had stopped. Chances are the field team will play before cutoff time and allow at least 20 overs.

The home side reached 55 in 60 minutes to take seventh place in the game after Mark Adair made his debut and Graham Hume was given a new ball alongside Josh Little.

Chamunorwa Chibhabha, who was promoted to the season opener, ran 16 laps, but a strong first race between Innocent Kaia and Ervine couldn’t be more exciting.

Josh Little, 13, Hume, 20, Adair, 15, and Curtis Camphor had just started the second game when the referee kicked the player out of the game.

Ireland’s round of 46 win in the second match canceled out Zimbabwe’s 3-point victory in the series opener, and Zimbabwe won the T20 series 2-1.

Andy McBrine missed today’s game due to injury, ending his 51st consecutive ODI streak. In Saturday’s second game, he injured his rotator cuff and had to leave the field and was unable to play today. Gareth Delaney has been replaced with the only change to the Irish squad.

Most of the team will be heading home tomorrow, but Paul Sterling, Josh Little, Lorcan Tucker, Andrew Barberney and Curtis Camphor are flying around the world to continue their commitment to the franchise.

Ireland’s next move is the Bangladesh Tour in March, which includes three ODIs, three T20s and the next Test match after a four-year wait.
