Dream11 match top picks

Top Wicketkeeper Pick

With 460 runs in 29 matches, Lorcan Tucker is Ireland’s first-choice keeper, often batting in the lower order. He has impressed in the ICC T20 World Cup as well, and he has recently been in decent form in white-ball cricket. Your IRE vs. ZIM Dream11 prediction team would benefit from the addition of Tucker, who is likely to bat in the middle order.

Top Batter Pick

Craig Ervine has 2899 runs at an average of 32.21, making him an experienced campaigner. He scored 100 runs at a strike rate of 112.26, making him the series’ leading run scorer. Ervine is a top pick for your IRE vs. ZIM Dream11 prediction team because of his form and experience.

Top All-rounder Pick

Wesley Madhevere bats well and has scored 485 runs in 25 games. Despite the fact that he has five fifties to his name, his average is slightly lower. Your Dream11 prediction team would benefit from Madhevere’s ability to score big runs in the middle overs.

Top Bowler Pick

Another highly regarded youngster with a successful international debut is Josh Little. In 22 matches, he has taken 33 wickets at an average of 31.09 Little is a must-have member of your Dream11 prediction team for the IRE vs. ZIM matchup due to his proficiency with the new ball and in the final overs.

match captain and vice-captain choices

In the T20I series, Zimbabwe’s Ryan Burl stood out, scoring 53 runs and taking seven wickets in three matches. Burl has a good ODI average of 28.65, despite the fact that his batting has taken the spotlight for the past year or so. Your ZIM vs. IRE Dream11 prediction team’s top pick for captain or vice-captain is Burl, who is in excellent form.

Another gifted Irishman, Harry Tector, is slowly building a big name in international cricket. He scored 78 runs at a strike rate of 104 in the T20I series against Zimbabwe, taking five wickets with his offspin.

Weather Forecast

Throughout the game, there is a 40% chance of rain, and most of the time, it will be cloudy. The temperature will hover around 21 degrees Celsius.
