Players who are expected to perform well as per IRE vs ZIM Dream11 Prediction.
Paul Stirling: Paul Stirling has got off to two good starts but failed to get a big score. We are backing him to go the long distance this time. He has 2228 runs in 82 T20I innings at a striker rate of 132.
Regis Chakabva: In the previous two series, Chakabva has been Zimbabwe’s best batsman. He scored 47 runs in the first T20I but was missed out in the second. We’re betting on him to do well in the third game.
Craig Young: Young picked up two wickets giving away 15 runs from his quota of four overs in the first game. He bowled well in the second game but was wicketless.
Ryan Burl: The wickets have helped the spinners, and Ryan Burl has benefited as a result. He has five wickets in two games at an economy of under 6.
