Zimbabwe started the T20I series in superb fashion winning the first match defending a target of just 117 runs in their 20 overs. But hosts Ireland made a superb return winning the next 2 T20I matches in a row to take the lead 2-1 and now they can seal the series with a win in this match. Ireland will hope these matches help their players get into the grove before the much awaited T20I World Cup matches. Zimbabwe need to win this match to keep the series alive and take it to the decider in the final match.

Ireland Preview

Ireland posted a massive score of 178 runs in the last game with Paul Stirling making his highest T20I score of 115 runs (and his first T20I international century). Balbirnie (31 runs) and Shane Getkate (19 runs) played vital cameos to share 70+ partnerships with Stirling in the last game.

Ireland put on a splendid bowling show as a unit to bowl out the opposition for 138 runs. Mark Adair was the pick of the bowlers with 3 wickets while the trio of Joshua Little, Shane Getkate, and Benjamin White picked up 2 wickets each in the match. Simi Singh has been fairly economical in the 3 matches giving runs at just 6 RPO.

Top players to bet on:

Paul Stirling – Stirling has scores of 115*, 37, & 24 at a strike rate of 125 in the 3 matches so far. We expect him to continue his good form with the bat in this match too and lead his team to a massive score.

Shane Getkate – Getkate has 6 wickets in the 3 matches so far claiming crucial wickets in all 3 matches. He will look to strangle the batsmen in the middle overs in this match too and restrict the opposition to a paltry score.

Ireland Predicted Playing XI:

Paul Stirling, Kevin O Brien, Andrew Balbirnie (c), George Dockrell, William McClintock, Shane Getkate, Neil Rock (wk), Simi Singh, Mark Adair, Joshua Little, Benjamin White

Zimbabwe Preview

Zimbabwe never really put on a good fight in the chase as Craig Ervine (33 runs) and Ryan Burl (27 runs) were the only players to make a decent score.  Milton Shumba and Regis Chakabva have made 40+ scores in this series so far while the other batters are yet to make a contribution so far.

Ryan Burl and Luke Jongwe took one wicket each while the other bowlers gave too many runs and failed to take wickets. Ngarva, Masakadza, and Tendai Chatara are experienced campaigners and we hope they would come good in this all important clash.

Top players to bet on:

Ryan Burl – Ryan Burl is having a good series scoring 75 runs with the bat and claiming 6 wickets across 3 matches so far. He has been their most vital player who providing excellent balance to their side in this series.

Craig Ervine – Ervine looked good for his 33 runs of 18 balls with 3 boundaries and 2 sixes in the match. He must lead his team from the front with the bat to help his team post a good score.

Zimbabwe Predicted Playing XI:

Wesley Madhevere, Tadiwanashe Marumani, Regis Chakabva (wk), Dion Myers, Craig Ervine (c), Milton Shumba, Ryan Burl, Luke Jongwe, Wellington Masakadza, Tendai Chatara, Richard Ngarava/Blessing Muzurbani

Weather Conditions

Bready will have clear and sunny weather with gentle breeze. We expect to get a full quota of overs in this match with no weather interruptions.

Venue Details

Bready is a good batting track with a fast outfield where a lot of runs are available. Bowlers need to execute their plans to perfection to restrict the batters. The pitch might slow down as the game progresses. We expect 180-200 runs to be scored in this match.

Toss: To Bat

The pitch will be fresh and easy to bat in the first innings than the second innings with the ball coming onto the bat nicely. Both captains will look to bat first and post a big score on board.

Ireland bowlers have never allowed Zimbabwe batters to amek a big partnership in all 3 matches while their batters made a superb comeback after a poor performance in their first match. Zimbabwe batting line-up is struggling for consistency and players are not making big scores. Ireland has the wood over the Zimbabwe in the recent matches and with the visitors missing many of their senior players, the hosts surely has an upper hand in the contest. We expect Ireland to win this match and series 3-1.

IRELAND will win the match & series 3-1.
