The third T20I between Ireland and Zimbabwe is set to take place at the Bready Cricket Club on Wednesday.
The Irish stormed to a resounding win in the previous game, courtesy of a Kevin O'Brien fifty. They will look to gain a series lead with another such performance, but the Zimbabweans should prove to be a handful in what promises to be a cracking game of cricket.

IRE vs ZIM, 3rd T20I
Date and Time: 1st September, at 7:30 PM IST
Venue: Bready Cricket Club, Bready
A decent batting track beckons in Bready with some help on offer for the pacers with the new ball. Although they should get some extra bounce as well, the pacers will need to be wary of the batsmen, who will look to go on the attack from ball one. The spinners should also get into the act in the middle overs, making for a good contest between the bat and ball. Both teams will look to chase upon winning the toss, with 150-160 being par at the venue.
Today’s IRE vs ZIM Dream11 match top picks
Regis Chakabva: Regis Chakabva has been Zimbabwe's best bet with the bat, with some intent-driven batting in the top order. With batting conditions being good, Chakabva will be eyeing another big performance at the expense of Ireland in today's game.
Paul Stirling: Although Paul Stirling has gotten starts in the series, he is due for a big knock at the top of the order. The burly opener is Ireland's best batter and with conditions not helping swing bowling much, he will be key for his side.
Ryan Burl: Ryan Burl has done well in both games with five wickets to his name in the series. With his pinch-hitting ability also coming up trumps at the backend of the innings, Burl is a must-have in your IRE vs ZIM Dream11 fantasy team.
Craig Young: Although Ireland's lead pacer Craig Young has been wayward with his lines and lengths, he has been decent with the new ball. One can bank on his skill and experience in the death overs, making him a handy option for your fantasy team.
