Fantasy Tips of the Day

In the last 3 games at Harare, spinners have accounted for 42% of the wickets.

Wesley Madhevere is the highest run-scorer at the venue. He has smashed 385 at an average of 32, also providing bonus points for 46 boundaries.

Against Ireland, Craig Ervine and Sean Williams are the top two run-getters for Zimbabwe, averaging over 40. In addition, their Ultimate Team percentage reads 80 in the last 5 T20Is.

On the other hand, Andrew Balbirnie has ordinary numbers against Zimbabwe: 118 runs at an average of 17 in 8 games.

Ryan Burl’s three-for in the opening ODI wasn’t a surprise. He strikes at 11.3 against Ireland.

Against Zimbabwe, Mark Adair has featured in the Ultimate Team in 6 of 7 T20Is. He has picked 18 wickets, including four four-wicket hauls.

Zimbabwe have batters who are equipped with a better technique against spin and hence are favourites to win the game. Ireland will have to punch well above their weight to level the series.
