Ireland and Zimbabwe will cross swords on the third T20I of the five-match T20I series. They have already played two T20Is so far where Ireland bounced back strongly in the second T20I after losing the first game and managed to level the series 1-1.

Coming to chase, Paul Stirling and Kevin O’Brien got off to a brilliant as they smashed 37 runs and 60 runs respectively. Kevin O’Brien was the show stealer as he went on to smash 60 runs off just 41 balls to provide Ireland with a 7 wicket victory.
