  • Zimbabwe vs Ireland Dream11

    ZIM vs IRE Dream11 Prediction : The second day of the marquee event shall be packed with some thrilling encounters. Initial game would consist of West Indies and Scotland, and the second would be another hard fought game for a place in the Super 12. The game between Zimbabwe and Ireland is expected to be a thriller as the teams possess similar skill sets. Zimbabwe have not really had many T20Is apart from that home series against Bangladesh, which they went on to win 2-1. Their lack of T20I games in the build up to the World Cup was visible in the practice match against Sri Lanka as they looked rusty. Ireland would be riding high on confidence after that series win against Afghanistan. Since then, they have not played any T20I but did play a Warm Up game against Namibia which did not produce ideal result for them.
