IRE vs ZIM Dream11 Prediction: Ireland will take on Zimbabwe in the third of the five-match T20I series at Bready Cricket Club, Northern Ireland on Wednesday. The hosts Ireland came back well to level the series 1-1 with a seven-wicket victory in the second T20I on Sunday.

IRE vs ZIM Dream 11 Prediction

It has been a topsy turvy start to the five-match T20I series with both teams getting one win each. However, Ireland have largely been the better side when one remembers that they only failed to win the first game by three runs. Zimbabwe, on the other hand, haven’t been at their best in the absence of senior players

IRE vs ZIM Dream 11 Fantasy Tips 2021

Kevin O’Brien’s welcome return to form would be a massive positive for Ireland not just for this series but also looking at the T20 World Cup in October. However, Zimbabwe are still marginally a better T20 side given the quality of batsmen in their line-up.

IRE 2021 Captain (Andy Balbirnie)

Ireland skipper Andrew Balbirnie is an elegant batsman who will look to anchor the inning. He missed out once again in the second T20I by scoring just five runs.

ZIM 2021 Captain (Craig Ervine)

For the second match in a row, Zimbabwe captain Craig Ervine looked in good touch but he only made 15 off 12 balls. Zimbabwe would expect more contribution from a senior batsman.

Man of the Match in IRE vs ZIM

All-rounder Ryan Burl will be a solid candidate to bag the ‘Man of the Match’ award in the third T20I. He excelled in the second game with 37 runs and two wickets.
