IRE vs ZIM Dream 11 Prediction

After a good start to the tour, the form-line has only gone downhill for the visitors Zimbabwe. The inexperienced batting line-up has continued to struggled with Zimbabwe not looking like they will pick Brendan Taylor in the shortest format. On the other hand, Ireland have played better with each game. They produced an all-round display on Thursday by posting a total of 174-4 before restricting Zimbabwe to 110-9.

Ireland will look to get another win in the final T20I after already winning the series with a victory in the fourth game. The hosts’ top-order has fired consistently meaning that they have managed to post good totals while Zimbabwe’s inexperienced batting line-up has also played into their hands. This theme might continue to be the same on Saturday too.

Ireland skipper Andrew Balbirnie is an elegant batsman who will look to anchor the inning. He came up with a superb 36 off 22 balls in the fourth T20I.
