Australia will play their first One-Day International (ODI) since winning the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 as they play the one-off ODI against Ireland at Belfast on Thursday. Having just lost The Ashes 2015 to England, Australia will be devoid of Michael Clarke, Chris Rogers, Brad Haddin and Ryan Harris. The losses at Cardiff, Edgbaston, and Trent Bridge during The Ashes will be on their minds as they prepare to take on the venerable giant-killers, Ireland. The hosts, meanwhile, play their first round of cricket against a top quality side since the 2015 World Cup, having finished as the semi-finalists in the recent ICC World T20 Qualifiers 2015.
