IRE vs ZIM Tips, Stats & Team for Today Match Prediction
Match: IRE vs ZIM ODI Match Prediction
Time: 13 September, 03:00 PM (IST)
Venue: Civil Service Cricket Club – Belfast, Ireland
- Brendan Taylor is the batter we would like to stick with as the top scorer in the upcoming game. He scored 49 in the first match and is the best Zimbabwe batter. Blessing Muzarambani has bowled well in both games and is the leading wicket-taker for his team with 5 scalps. He is our pick for top wicket-taker.
- From Ireland, William Porterfield has played two back to back 50+ run knocks and is the highest run-getter of the series. We will back him to be the top scorer in the next game as well. Mark Adair will be our preferred pick for top wicket-taker as he is a genuine wicket-taker and decimated the Zimbabweans in the T20Is
- Ireland have two very good openers thus they are likely to have a better opening partnership.

Who will win today match: IRE vs ZIM ODI Match Fantasy Team
Ireland batted well in the last game and might have won the match if it was not halted due to rain. They will back themselves to have another good game with the bat and level the series. Ireland are favourites to win.
IRE Key Players:
Stirling has been in fine form of late. He got good starts in both the previous games but didn’t carry on. However, a big knock seems just around the corner.
Porterfield has two fifties in two games. However, he would be keen to work on his strike rate that has been on the lower side. Nevertheless, he has given his team solid starts which has helped the middle order to go berserk in the final overs.
Tector has two solid fifties in both games. He has looked very good and played some sizzling shots. He can be devastating in the final overs.
ZIM Key Players:
Having asked to open, Taylor played a wonderful hand of 49 in the first game. He didn’t get a chance to bat in the second and will be keen to start from where he left.
Ervine seems to be peaking at the right time. After two back to back fifties, he’ll be keen to get a big hundred for his team.
Raza has a brilliant outing in the first game and won the Man of the Match award. He is one of the few Zimbabwe batsmen who can get on a roll and play back to back match-winning innings. The visitors will be expecting the same from their ace all-rounder.
IRE Team Form:
- This is a must win game for Ireland if they are to draw the series.
ZIM Team Form:
- Zimbabwe can’t lose the series, having won the first game.
Brendan Taylor, Regis Chakabva(w), Craig Ervine(c), Wesley Madhevere, Sean Williams, Milton Shumba, Sikandar Raza, Luke Jongwe, Wellington Masakadza, Blessing Muzarabani, Richard Ngarava, Tendai Chatara, Ryan Burl, Tinashe Kamunhukamwe, Tarisai Musakanda, Donald Tiripano, Dion Myers, Tadiwanashe Marumani.

Player Form Sheet:
Top Team Batsmens:
Paul Stirling, Harry Tector and William Porterfield are the three players we will pick from Ireland. Porterfield and Tector have two fifties in two games while Stirling is a dangerous batter who looks set for a big score anytime soon. Brendan Taylor, Craig Ervine and Sikandar Raza are the top three batters from this Zimbabwe team and we will back them to come good in the next game. They had good outings in the first match as well.
Top Team Bowlers:
We will back Blessing Muzarambani, Sean Williams and Richard Ngarava from Zimbabwe. Ngarava picked up three wickets in the second T20I while Williams is very experienced and won’t be easy to get away. Muzarambani backed his four wicket haul in the first game with another good outing.
