Match Ended   
214/7 (37.0/37)
288/4 (50.0/50)
Zimbabwe beat Ireland by 3 wickets (D/L method)
Right then, that is all we have from this cracker of a game! Zimbabwe go 1-0 up in the series and they would be looking to seal this three-match ODI series in the second ODI. Ireland, on the other hand, need to win the second game to level the series and take it to the decider. So, it is all to play for and the second ODI will be played on Saturday, 21st of January and the action will start at 12.45 pm IST (7.15 am GMT). Do, join us for the build-up. Cheers!
Ryan Burl is the player of the match for his amazing knock. He says that it is one of those games that they needed to get over the line. Adds that after the rains, they knew they had to go behind the bowlers. Ends by saying that they will look to improve in the coming games and they are happy to win this one.
Craig Ervine, the skipper of Zimbabwe says that it seems that every time they play the Irish it is always a close game. Tells that the wicket was sticky early on and feels that Andy Balbirnie and Harry Tector batted well and the wicket got better later on. Tells that they drop their energies in the middle overs with the ball and they dropped some half-chances but credits Irish batters. Mentions that Chatara needed a rest in this game and he will be back going ahead in the series.
Paul Stirling, the stand-in skipper of Ireland, says that they had great games so far in Zimbabwe. Adds that they started off by settling in with the bat and got a good score. Says that it was a great game but the rain had its part. Ends by saying that they will come back stronger in the next game.
Time for the Presentation ...
For Ireland, this will be a tough pill to swallow! They made a great comeback with the bat after losing two early wickets on the back of centuries by Andy Balbirnie and Tector. With the ball too, they were disciplined for the most part and managed to reduce Zimbabwe to 99 for four. However, things started going away from them a bit with Burl and Raza playing some aggressive cricket. Probably, the game shortening after a rain break did not go their way, as Zimbabwe had all the freedom with six wickets in hand. Irish though would be proud of their effort and need to comeback stronger in the next game.
Ervine won an important toss and decided to bowl to make use of some bowler-friendly overcast conditions. They did start well and got two Irish openers early but Ireland still managed to get a big total as the home team failed to get wickets in the middle overs. In reply, Zimbabwean openers could not make much of an impact and Ervine and Ballance too departed after getting good starts. However, Raza and Burl, two in-form allrounders counter-attacked and kept Zimbabwe in the hunt. The rain though threatened to take the game away from Zimbabwe but it stopped at the right time and with 39 needed off 22 balls, Zimbabwe were in with a sniff. They lost Raza on the second ball after the resumption but Burl continued his superb strokeplay and smashed 59 off 41 balls to take the game to the last over. Clive Madande then showed the nerves of steel to seal the game for the home side.
Wow! What a game! Zimbabwe and Ireland continue to dish out some extraordinary thrillers! The crowd goes wild and so do the Zimbabwe dressing room, we have witnessed an amazing finish here in the fading light at Harare Sports Club! Zimbabwe needed 13 runs off the final over and it came down to the final ball with four needed and Clive Madande on strike. The young man stood up and did what very few individuals around the world have been able to do, brilliant stuff! Ireland, on the other hand, have failed to close out another close encounter, they look gutted!

We are all set to resume now! We will have 22 balls more in this game now and the target for Zimbabwe is 214! So, 39 needed now from 22 balls!
Update - 8.18 pm IST (2.48 pm GMT) - There is some movement on the ground with groundstaff and umpires on the field. The side covers have been taken off! So, to state the obvious, rain has stopped! The players are also on the field now doing their practice drills. All the covers are off now. The game shall resume soon if rain stays away now.
Update - 7.50 pm IST (2.20 pm GMT) - It is still raining, folks! The covers are firmly on and must say conditions are not looking great at the moment. Also, we have started losing overs now and let's hope that our not-so-beloved friend, rain, finds some other place in the African continent to chill out. It may well enjoy conditions in the Sahara desert and countries there probably would welcome rain with loud cheer!
In the meanwhile, if you still want to enjoy some ODI cricket, you can switch tabs and enjoy the coverage of India vs New Zealand ODI. India posted a huge total of 349 runs with Shubman Gill scoring a double century. In reply. New Zealand are in some serious trouble at the moment with four down for 110 at the end of 24th over. They would probably need a miracle from that position to win the game. As said before you can switch tabs but do not forget to switch back here quickly as we bring you all the updates of this game.
Update - 7.22 pm IST (1.52 am GMT) - Here we go, the drizzle has got heavier and the umpires have finally decided to call the covers on. The groundsmen are quick to cover the pitch and surrounding area but for Zimbabwe it would be a heartbreak if match does not resume again. They are just 2 runs behind the DLS par score at the moment. The good thing for Zimbabwe and all those cricket fans who wants to watch some good quality cricket is that on-air commentator feels that it will not be a long delay and let's hope that he is right in his judgement. Also, there are around 24 minutes before we move towards a curtailed game.
