Current Form Zimbabwe:
Zimbabwe are in good form in T20I cricket currently. They have won 2 out of their last 5 T20I matches, while 1 game was washed off due to rain. Their most famous win came against Pakistan where they emerged winners by 1 run.
Players to look out for in Zimbabwe:
1. Wessly Madhevere- He performed brilliantly in the recently concluded ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2022 and will be eager to perform well against Zimbabwe in his home conditions.
2. Richard Ngarava- Ngarava is a very useful front line bowler for Zimbabwe who carries a great record against Ireland. He will play a key role for Zimbabwe in the upcoming T20I series against Ireland.
Current Form Ireland:
Ireland have won 2 out of their last 5 completed fixtures in T20I cricket. Their famous wins came against England and West Indies in the recent times.
Players to look out for in Ireland:
1. George Dockrell- He has redefined his batting in the last few years. Dockrell is a bankable middle order batter for Ireland and he will look to leave a mark in the upcoming T20I series against Zimbabwe.
2. Mark Adair- He mixes his pace well and has a surprise bouncer to confuse the batters. He is definitely one of the players to look out for in the upcoming series against Zimbabwe.
