Zimbabwe name squad for Ireland series
HARARE, Zimbabwe - The Zimbabwe Cricket Board has announced a strong 16-man squad for the six-match white ball series against Ireland in July. The two sides will contest three one-day internationals and three T20 Internationals in the first meeting of the two sides on Irish shores since 2003.
While this will be the first time the African side will have visited Ireland for 16 years, Ireland will be looking for revenge after the Zimbabweans convincingly defeated the Men in Green by 107 runs at the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier in Harare in March 2018.
Zimbabwe will play two ODIs and two T20Is against Netherlands in Holland, before heading to our shores for three ODIs and three T20Is.

• Ireland Men v Zimbabwe Men - 1 July 2019 (Bready)
