The fifth T20 international between Ireland and Zimbabwe will be played on Saturday at Bready Cricket Club. It has been a close-fought series thus far.

At the time of writing, three matches have been played. Zimbabwe won the first game by 3 runs. Ireland then made a strong comeback to win the second T20 international by 7 wickets. Ireland continued their strong show in the third T20 international as well.

Ireland batted first in the third game for the first time in the series. Paul Sterling probably played the best knock of his T20 international career. He gave the team an ideal start, hitting the bowlers left, right, and center. Kevin O Brien fell cheaply but Sterling ensured Ireland put on a good total on the board. He smashed 115 runs off just 75 balls and helped Ireland to post 178 in the first innings.

Balbirnie also chipped in with 31 off 24 balls, while Getkate remained unbeaten at 19 off 11 deliveries. Zimbabwe just couldn’t get going in the second innings. The batsmen failed to match the required run-rate and got out in regular intervals.

Skipper Craig Ervin gave some entertainment with his 18-ball 33-run knock. However, he fell short of support at the other end. Zimbabwe, eventually, were bundled out for just 138 runs.
