Ireland (IRE) will face the challenge of New Zealand (NZ) in 1st ODI of the bilateral ODI series. Ireland are coming into this series after facing a loss in the T20I series against India, but would look to start positively. They will rely on the performances of Mark Adair and Andy Balbirnie.
On the other hand, NZ will miss the services of Covid positive Mitchell Santner, and Tom Latham will be the stand-in skipper. The players like Glenn Phillips and Lockie Ferguson will be the key players.
