Ireland have already wrapped up the 5-match series with a convincing 64-run victory in the 4th T20I. Openers Paul Stirling and Kevin O’Brien are in scintillating form, and the duo has played a vital role in Ireland’s series triumph. Ireland will now be aiming for the fourth straight victory in this series.
On the other hand, Zimbabwe started well this series with a 3-run victory, but later on, the batters let them down. As a result, they lost 3 matches in a row and lost the serties. They need to win this match to reduce the margin of loss to 3-2.
