Manish Khorgade brings a wealth of knowledge in cricket and stats to the world of cricket betting. He was hooked on cricket as a 9-year-old back in 1992 during the ODI World Cup. Those iconic semi-finals watched along with his father left an indelible mark on him. He hasn't left cricket since. Or, more appropriately, it's the other way around.

About 13 years into the IT industry, he decided to shift base and follow cricket, wherever it might take him. Manish started with content writing for various publications. He, along with his friends, created GameOfStats - a statistics portal for fantasy sports enthusiasts - helping them create stats-based fantasy teams. He is currently a jack of all things and master of a few on this very portal - cricket-betting.com.

Being a stats expert, he spends time understanding the odds provided by the sportsbooks for various markets. He is astounded by how very little has been done when it comes to using cricket stats in predicting the outcome of an event. He aspires to change that.

Manish loves it when an underdog wins the game. He doesn’t have any favourite cricketers. Only the ones that inspire him more than others. He considers MS Dhoni to be the closest to a perfect sportsman - Brains, Brawn and Nerves. He also thinks Ben Stokes is a superstar and that Ravindra Jadeja should have some fielding drills named after him. 

Manish wishes to visit major sports venues across the world. Until then he is busy talking, writing, analyzing, and debating all things cricket.

ZIM Vs IRE Match Prediction

ZIM Vs IRE Key Stats

  • The match stands at Zimbabwe 1-0 Ireland after the 1st T20I.
  • Andrew Balbirnie scored the most boundaries for Ireland and finished with a 128 strike rate.

 

ZIM Vs IRE Match Preview

The 1st T20I match between Zimbabwe and Ireland at the Harare Sports Club turned into the most thrilling contest and a nailbiter, and as per today's match prediction, the 2nd T20I is set to be as exciting as the first one. 

Since the 1st winning game slipped away for Ireland due to a brief misfield, they are hell-bent on winning the next, while Zimbabwe wants to increase the lead to 2-0 in order to solidify their position further.

Zimbabwe Preview

Despite a slow start from Zimbabwe, getting smashed boundaries in almost every over, they were able to step up their game after a couple of wickets and turn the game around. 

With mostly new pace bowlers like Richard Ngarava, combined with a few experienced and talented spin bowlers like Sikandar Raza, Zimbabwe’s bowling lineup is currently the strongest and can be the key factor to their victory. 

Zimbabwe Lineup
Clive Madande, Wessly Madhevere, Tadiwanashe Marumani, Sean Williams, Ryan Burl, Brian Bennett , Luke Jongwe, Trevor Gwandu, Richard Ngarava, Blessing Muzarabani, Tinashe Kamunhukamwe

 

Zimbabwe - Who Will Be The Best Batter?

Sikandar Raza- the captain of the team is likely to be the best batter for obvious reasons. His performance in the T20 World Cup Africa Qualifier has been striking. 

He’s outdone himself with impressive scores like 82 runs off 48 balls (against Kenya). In the recent match against Ireland, he drove 7 boundaries, finished with a 154.76 strike rate, and scored the highest runs 65 (42).

Zimbabwe - Who Will Be The Best Bowler?

Richard Ngarava can be the best bowler in this match, his recent performance and bowling line both have been exceptional. 

Despite being a fast bowler, R. Ngarava only allowed 23 runs in his 4 overs and picked up 2 wickets in the process, with a striking 5.75 economy which played a big role in restraining Ireland within a low run target. His occasional yorker balls often become problematic to deal with, leading to LBW wickets.

Ireland Preview

Ireland started the game strong with a stellar opening pair who led the team to 44 runs in 4 overs but got stumped soon after, losing 2 wickets within 50 runs. The batting lineup of Ireland is well capable but requires composed gameplay and a set scheme of run rate to follow in order to score more than 170 runs. 

Ireland has a chance to win if bowlers in the 2nd innings are able to pick up a few of the opening wickets of Zimbabwe within the 1st powerplay overs.
 

Ireland Lineup
Paul Stirling, Mark Adair, Andrew Balbirnie, Curtis Campher, Gareth Delany, George Dockrell, Joshua Little, Harry Tector, Lorcan Tucker, Theo van Woerkom, Craig Young

 

Ireland - Who Will Be The Best Batter?

Paul Stirling is likely to be the best batter for Ireland, with his hard-hitting experience, he scored 3 boundaries, playing just 10 balls, and left the match with a 140 strike rate when he accidentally got out with LBW. 

He set the tone for the match and if he hadn’t gotten out, he’d have definitely been the best batter and he has the betting odds to be the best batter again in the upcoming match if he is composed with the bat in hand.

Ireland - Who Will Be The Best Bowler?

Joshua Little, the youngest left-arm pace bowler from Ireland is likely to be the best bowler in the upcoming match. With his slick fastballs, he’s been successful in restraining the Zimbabwean batters within 17 runs only in 4 overs and picked up 2 wickets in the process, finishing with an impressive 4.25 economy. 

If he can strategically place his deliveries and mix up different bowling styles, he’s likely to be the best bowler.

ZIM Vs IRE - Who Will Be The Player Of The Match?

Zimbabwe Captain Sikandar Raza is likely to be the player of the match since his incredible performance stands out and clearly plays a big role in Zimbabwe’s victory. Along with effective leadership, Sikandar Raza has shown exceptional skill with both the bat and the ball in hand. 

He not only scored the highest for his team (65 runs in 42 balls) but also took 3 important wickets including star opener Andrew Balbirnie.

ZIM Vs IRE - Who Will Win Today's Toss?

The team winning the toss will choose to bowl first and chase a target since the last game got out of hand during the 2nd innings when Zimbabwe needed 2 runs from 2 bowls. 

Tensions were high and Ireland was able to pick up a wicket in the 1st ball, but due to a misfield Zimbabwe batters took two singles and won the game on the last ball. Hence, according to today's toss prediction, the team winning the toss will choose to Bowl first. ZIM Vs IRE Venue, Pitch and Weather Report.

ZIM Vs IRE Venue, Pitch and Weather Report

The 2nd T20I is set to be on the same venue, Harare Sports Club on December 9, and the weather reports suggest it’s likely to be mostly sunny and hot on matchday. The pitch is said to be favorable for both batters and bowlers at the Harare Sports Club, pace bowlers have been more successful at this venue.

 There are no chances of game interruption/rain because of weather, since the Probability of Precipitation on matchday is 1%, and in the evening dew point is likely to drop to 6°.

ZIM Vs IRE Match Winner Prediction

Based on their current performance, Zimbabwe is expected to win the 2nd T20I and make it look effortless as well. Whether it’s Sikandar Raza's stunning cover drives or Muzarabani's slick pace bowling, Zimbabwe as a team is a threat to Ireland. 

Free cricket betting tips: Unless Ireland can restrain Zimbabwe within 150 runs and gracefully keep their run rate above 7 in the 2nd innings, everything will contribute to a resounding win in favor of Zimbabwe.
