Dream11 Team Ireland vs Zimbabwe 1st T20I

After completing a historic clean sweep against the visitors, Ireland is all set to take on Zimbabwe for the 1st T20I in Belfast. A clinical performance with the ball where Tim Murtagh took three wickets for the team and the top five batsmen helped them register their first ever whitewash over Zimbabwe. Paul Stirling and James McCollum scored 60 runs for the opening stand. Although Zimbabwe managed to take a few wickets after that but McCollum and William Porterfield helped the team chase down the target of 191 in 41.2 overs.

Zimbabwe would hope to bury the burden of their ODI series humiliation and would want to start afresh against the hosts. Zimbabwe sit on the 14th spot in the ICC Men’s T20I rankings while Ireland sit on the 15th spot in the T20I rankings. Both the teams are slated to play a three-match T20I series and both the teams meet each other, while Ireland would hope for a dominating start, Zimbabwe would hope to get revenge for their ODI series loss.
