Ireland win the Twenty20 series against Zimbabwe

Ireland wins their Twenty20 series with 64-run against Zimbabwe. Where O’Brien made 47 runs and Stirling made 39 runs in an 89-run partnership that laid the foundations for Ireland’s total of 174-4.

O’Brien and Stirling have been in outstanding form, with the former smashing a half-century in Ireland’s series-levelling win in the 2nd match and making his maiden Twenty20 international century in the third game.

Zimbabwe scored only 110 runs for all out in reply as Ireland seamer Mark Adair took a decisive 4 wickets for 23 runs.

Craig Ervine battled hard for his 28 runs, but Zimbabwe could not stop Ireland from securing their biggest margin of victory against a ‘Full Member’ cricket country in Twenty20 internationals.

The tourists were injured and suffered in the pre-match warm-up by Ryan Burl, one of their star performers of the series.

Ireland has an unassailable 3-1 lead in the 5 match series.
