174/4 (20.0/20)
110/9 (20.0/20)
Ireland beat Zimbabwe by 64 runs
That's your lot for this match. Ireland have stamped their authority after a blip in the first game and taken an unsurpassable lead in the series. There is still one game left, so do tune in for the final T20I on Saturday, 4th September 2021 at 3 pm local (2 pm GMT). You can join us in advance for the build-up. Cheers!
The victorious skipper of Ireland, Andy Balbirnie is up for a chat. He is very happy with this win especially after losing the toss. Adds that they were not sure of what would be a good total but they were happy with 174. Tells that they do not play this format regularly and Andy feels that they need at least 6-7 match-winners going into the T20 World Cup. Says that they want a squad of 15 players who can win games on their day for Ireland. Signs off by saying that they have won this series but with the ODIs coming, they want to build some momentum.
Craig Ervine, the skipper of Zimbabwe, expresses his disappointment and tells that they just never got going in the chase. Feels that it is becoming an issue for them and they need to sort it out going forward. Admits that the stand between Paul Stirling and Kevin O'Brien put them on the back foot. Adds that a couple of wickets in the middle overs allowed them to make a comeback as at one stage it appeared that Ireland will get a score around 180-190. Praises Wellington Masakadza for his bowling who has become a consistent performer for them. Mentions that every game is important and although the series is gone, the last match offers them the opportunity to try out different combinations.
Mark Adair gets the Man of the Match award! The speedster says that it was nice to come back and make an impact straightaway. Shares that they sat down as a bowling unit after the first game with the coach and they thought of some different plans. Says that they had a pretty good series against South Africa and it's good to win this one against Zimbabwe. Signs off by saying that the plan is to win this series 4-1.
Presentation time...
The chase was put to bed inside the Powerplay. It was a very flavourless show from Zimbabwe, both with the bat and ball. There wasn't enough planning and execution from them and that was very disappointing to see from a team which showed a lot of fight in the series opener. Full marks to Ireland for the way they have bounced back after a morale-deflating loss in the first T20I. Their batting and bowling have started to click together and are complementing each other superbly.
A clinical performance from Ireland and they have taken an unassailable 3-1 lead in the 5-match T20I series. Their batting was right on the money with Paul Stirling, Kevin O'Brien and Andy Balbirnie doing the maximum damage. After posting 174 on the board, the Irishmen had the upper hand and their bowlers turned up in full force to make Zimbabwe surrender. Three blows from Mark Adair at the start was enough to take the wind out of Zimbabwe's sails and from there on, the chase was just meandering towards a one-sided victory for Ireland.

Shout for a caught behind, the umpire shakes his head. Back of a length, around middle, Richard Ngarava tries to heave but it beats the inside half of his bat.

Barry McCarthy To Craig Ervine
Superb effort by Adair. You cannot keep him out of action at the moment. Fuller in length and outside off, Ervine drives it through the line, looks to pierce the gap at extra cover but Adair dives to stop the ball.

Mark Adair To Dion Myers OUT!
OUT! BOWLED! Hit him for a boundary and he will take his revenge immediately. A wonderful inswinging yorker, around leg, Myers fails to keep it out and finds his stumps rearranged. Zimbabwe staring down the barrel, 150 needed off 98 balls.

Mark Adair To Regis Chakabva OUT!
OUT! Strangled down the leg side. Adair gets his revenge immediately. Not a wicket-taking delivery though. It's on a length and drifting down the leg side, Regis Chakabva tries to flick but gets a feather touch on it. Neil Rock collects and appeals, the bowler joins him too and the finger has gone up. Regis Chakabva shakes his head as he returns. A body blow to the visiting team.

Mark Adair To Regis Chakabva
FOUR! Regis Chakabva has plundered that ball. Short in length and close to off, sitting up nicely, Regis stays back and plays a rocketing pull shot over mid-wicket for a boundary.

Shout for an lbw, not given. Fuller in length around middle and leg, angling down, Wesley is early into his flick shot and misses. Missing leg and hence the appeal is not entertained.

Mark Adair To Tadiwanashe Marumani OUT!
OUT! A smart return catch. Very tame dismissal for Marumani. Mark Adair bowls from 'round the wicket and angles in a fuller delivery on middle, Tadiwanashe Marumani tries to work it on the leg side but gets a tame leading edge back to the bowler. Adair collects the catch easily and draws first blood.
Mark Adair to bowl from the opposite end. He has had his issues with the back but has recovered well.
