IRE vs ZIM, 3rd ODI, Ireland v Zimbabwe ODI Series 2019, 7 July 2019
Ireland won by 6 wickets
BALL BY BALL
Dropped at his feet and O'Brien calls his young partner through for the single to take the victory and the 3-0 series win. The first time ever for Ireland that they have completed a clean sweep against a Test playing nation. Terrific display all round after restricting the runs in the first innings and then playing sensibly with the bat to chase it down with ease. Fifty for James McCollum at the top of the order while Wiliam Porterfield added 49 and 35 for Kevin O'Brien. Not the series Zimbabwe will have hoped for and they have got a lot of areas to work on before their next game.
