The third T20 International between Ireland (IRE) and New Zealand (NZ) will be played on Friday, July 22 at Stormont in Belfast. The match will start at 8:30 PM IST.
IRE vs NZ Dream11 prediction
It’s no secret that the New Zealand cricket team will be the outright favourites to beat Ireland.
After a successful ODI series sweep, the Kiwis continued their domination in the shortest format, sealing the three-game T20I series with an 88-run victory over the Ireland cricket team in the second T20I.
Riding on the back of Dane Cleaver’s unbeaten 75, New Zealand scored 179/4 in 20 overs and managed to restrict their opponents to just 91.
The ongoing T20I series is the first bilateral affair between the sides in 20-overs cricket, and the Black Caps are well-placed to secure a 3-0 win on Friday.
IRE vs NZ Dream11 team tips for the 3rd T20I
Top tip: Best batter
New Zealand’s Glenn Phillips enters this contest with the most points (169) ahead of Ireland’s George Dockrell (59). The middle-order batter has scored the most runs - 92 - in the ongoing series and is rightly tipped to cause some serious damage to the Irish bowlers once again. Phillips is available for 9.0 credits.
Top tip: Best bowler
Ireland pacer Joshua Little is an outright pick for this spot. The 22-year-old bowler picked six wickets from the first two T20Is, thus earning him a tally of 182 fantasy points. With Ireland eyeing a comeback in the T20I series finale, Little is worth an inclusion to teams for 8.5 credits knowing the match-winning quality he carries into a T20I game.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Scoring an all-important 29 runs with the bat followed by two wickets for just 19 runs with the ball, New Zealand’s Jimmy Neesham was arguably the best all-rounder in the first T20I against Ireland. Despite not contributing much in the second T20I, Neesham remains a dangerous obstacle for Ireland and is an absolute steal for fantasy players at 8.5 credits.
For a wicket-keeper, New Zealand’s Dane Cleaver is our recommendation. The 30-year-old’s unbeaten knock of 75 and a hand in two dismissals (one caught, one stumping) saw him pocket 125 fantasy points in the second T20I. Priced at 8.5 credits, Cleaver is a top buy and will look to consolidate his current haul of 151 fantasy points.
IRE vs NZ probable playing XI
IRE playing XI (probable): Paul Sterling, Andrew Balbirnie (captain), Gareth Delany, Harry Tector, Curtis Campher, Lorcan Tucker (wicket-keeper), George Dockrell, Mark Adair, Barry McCarthy, Craig Young, Joshua Little
NZ playing XI (probable): Martin Guptill, Finn Allen, Dane Cleaver (wicket-keeper), Glenn Philips, Daryl Mitchell, Jimmy Neesham, Michael Bracewell, Mitchell Santner (captain), Ish Sodhi, Lockie Ferguson, Jacob Duffy
