Harare: Zimbabwe won the toss and chose to bat first in a one-day international series decider against Ireland on a spinner-friendly track in Harare on Monday.
The hosts won the first match by three wickets last Wednesday and Ireland drew level three days later with a 46-run victory.
Zimbabwe welcomed back captain and top-order batsman Craig Ervine, who was ruled out of the second match by injury.
Opening batter Paul Stirling continued as stand-in Ireland skipper after Andy Balbirnie was ruled out of the series having suffered a blow to the head during the first match.
