IRE vs ZIM Dream11 Prediction: Ireland will take on Zimbabwe in the second of the five-match T20I series at Clontarf Cricket Club Ground, Dublin on Sunday. Zimbabwe ran victors in the first T20I by a mere three runs as Richard Ngarava defended six runs off the final over. Ireland fell short after doing superbly to restrict Zimbabwe to just 117-7 in the first innings.,

IRE vs ZIM Dream 11 Prediction

Both Ireland and Zimbabwe fared quite poorly with the bat even though the pitch behaved two-paced from the beginning. Zimbabwe’s ability to hold their nerve came vital as they managed to pull off a three-run victory. Credit must also go to Regis Chakabva as he bagged the ‘Man of the Match’ award for his brilliant 47 off 28 balls.

Pitch Report: All the players who were involved in the first T20I were of the opinion that the pitch proved to be two-paced and tricky to handle. Similar conditions might be on offer for the first T20I which means that we might see a low scoring affair once again.

IRE vs ZIM Dream 11 Fantasy Tips 2021

Ireland will be deeply concerned that they have lost their four T20I matches with the World Cup in UAE and Oman not far away. On the other hand, Zimbabwe have done better with three wins in their seven matches. The visitors will also hope for an improvement with the batting and this applies especially to the youngsters.

IRE 2021 Captain (Andy Balbirnie)

Ireland skipper Andrew Balbirnie is an elegant batsman who will look to anchor the inning. He didn’t have the greatest of outings in the first T20I by making only six runs.

ZIM 2021 Captain (Craig Ervine)

The newly-appointed Zimbabwe captain Craig Ervine looked in good touch during the first T20I but he failed to make it a big one. Ervine only scored 17 runs off 12 balls before getting out.

Man of the Match in IRE vs ZIM

Regis Chakabva continued his superb batting improvement over the past few months with a vital 47-run knock off just 28 balls. He was a rare batsman who managed to find some sort of rhythm in the first T20I when all the others failed.

IRE Top Picks

Paul Stirling

Like a few other batsmen in the first T20I, Paul Stirling made a decent start but failed to kick on from there. He scored 24 off 19 balls on Friday. Stirling will look for a much bigger score in the second game.

Simi Singh

All-rounder Simi Singh proved his worth to the Irish side once again as he produced 28 runs and two wickets in the first T20I. Simi also performed consistently against South Africa last month
