Ireland and Zimbabwe will locks horns in the third T20 international on Wednesday at Dready Cricket Club, Northern Island. Both sides have won one match apiece in the five-match series. Zimbabwe won the first match, while Ireland leveled the series 1-1. It will be interesting to see who wins the third game and take the lead in the series.
In the first game, not a lot of people expect Zimbabwe to win it, given how they batted in the first innings. Zimbabwe were bundled out for just 117 runs in the first innings.
Both the openers went back to the pavilion after scoring one run each. Wicket-keeper, Chakabva then led the recovery and played a crucial knock. Wickets, however, kept falling at the other end. Chakabva top-scored with 47 off 28 balls as Zimbabwe managed 117.
Ireland exhibited a below-par batting performance in the second innings. They were guilty of throwing away their wicket after getting starts. Sterling was the first one to get out in the sixth over. His wicket saw a regular fall of wickets. Kevin O Brien, who scored 25 off 32, got out in the eleventh over and the tables turned completely afterward. Simi Singh managed to stay till the very end but Ireland eventually fell short of 3 runs.
Zimbabwe batted reasonably well in the second T20 international. Milton Shumba, who got out on 7 off 18 balls, scored 46 off 27 balls. Ryan Burl also played a vital 37-run knock of 33 balls as Zimbabwe posted 152 runs in the first innings. Getkate was the pick of the bowlers for Ireland, picking 3 for 20 in 4 overs.
Ireland’s senior players, Kevin O Brien and Paul Sterling took it upon themselves to guide the team to victory. O Brien scored 60 runs off 41 balls, while Sterling amassed 37 off 29 deliveries. The duo gave Ireland a strong start to the run chase and made the task easier for the batsmen to follow. George Dockrell ensured he stayed unbeaten on 33 off 29 balls to guide the team to a 7 wicket win in the end.
