IRE vs ZIM: 4th T20: Match Prediction
Ireland bowlers have never allowed Zimbabwe batters to make a big partnership in all 3 matches while their batters made a superb comeback after a poor performance in their first match. Zimbabwe batting line-up is struggling for consistency and players are not making big scores. Ireland has the wood over the Zimbabwe in the recent matches and with the visitors missing many of their senior players, the hosts surely has an upper hand in the contest. We expect Ireland to win this match and series 3-1.
