The first T20 match of the five-match T20 series between Ireland vs Zimbabwe will be played on 27 August 2021 at Clontarf Cricket Club Ground, Dublin. I hope the match will be very competitive.
Ireland lost the Twenty20 series against South Africa on home soil a few days ago. But the Ireland did not allow South Africa to win so easily. For Ireland, Andrew Balbirnie scored 55 runs in three matches. Harry Tector scored 44 runs in three months and Paul Stirling scored 43 runs in three matches.
Ireland’s Mark Adair took 5 wickets with 72 runs in 3 matches. Simi Singh took 4 wickets for 72 runs in three matches. Although they did not win a single match in the series, but their great performance will put the Ireland far ahead in this series.
The Zimbabwe team recently lost the T20 series 2-1 to Bangladesh. In the Bangladesh-Zimbabwe series, Zimbabwe lost the first T20 match by 8 wickets, won the second T20 match by 23 runs and lost the third T20 match to Bangladesh by 5 wickets. Although they lost the series to Bangladesh, their batting and bowling skills were eye-catching. Wesley Madhevere scored 150 runs in three matches and held that number one position in terms of runs. Regis Chakabva scored 105 runs in three matches, Dion Myers scored 84 runs in 3 matches, Ryan Burl scored 69 runs in three matches.
The Zimbabwe bowlers also bowled very well. Luke Jongwe took five wickets for 59 runs in three matches, Blessing Muzarabani took four wickets for 71 runs in three matches, Wellington Masakadza took four wickets for 62 runs in three matches. I hope the experience of this Twenty20 series will put them far ahead in the Island series.
The cricket club will help the batsmen to score runs along the ground pitch. On this pitch the ball comes to the bat and the run is much higher as the boundary line is shorter. In that case the run in this match will be 160 plus.
The skies of Dublin are currently clear. In that case there is no possibility of rain in the match. Cricket fans will be able to watch the entire game.
The team that understands pitch, weather conditions.To win the toss, must decide to bat.
