IRE vs ZIM 5th T20I Match Preview
They have sealed the series after winning three back-to-back games at their backyard. They might look to try out some new combinations in the last game before the ODI series.
A Good Sign for them is that their key batter Kevin O’Brien is back in form after some quiet performances in the last series. He scored 47 runs in the last game and has scored 141 runs in total in this series.
Paul Stirling has been the highest run-scorer with 215 runs including a marvelous hundred in the 3rd game. With the ball, Shane Getkate has been the highest wicket-taker with 8 wickets under his name.
Mark Adair was the pick from the bowlers in the last game as he picked up 4 wickets in his 4 overs. All the players have played their role very well in this series and will look to continue the same in the last game as well.
They have already lost the series but will look to go into the ODI series with a win in the last game. Their batting and bowling both struggled to get going in this series and they surely missed their star batter Brendan Taylor in this series.
Ryan Burl has been fantastic for them both with the ball and bat in this series. He did not play the last game. Wellington Masakadza bowled very well in the last game and picked up 2 wickets.
With the bat, their skipper Craig Ervine played a good knock of 28 runs but did not get support from the other end. They will look to win the last game and go ahead in the ODI series with some positivity.
