In the third and final T20 match of the three-match series between New Zealand and Ireland, the two teams are all set to fight it out at the Civil Service Cricket Club in Belfast on Wednesday.
The host team Ireland gave a tough fight to visitors in the first T20I but failed miserably in the second one, losing the match by 88 runs and eventually the series. The Blackcaps are ahead by 2-0.
Ireland has not won a single match in the tour and will hope to end it by getting a win.

Power Play scores:
Opening players from New Zealand are known for playing destructive shots and long knocks. We estimate that on the first powerplay, there will be 45–55 runs on the board based on their recent performance.
Ireland has played two strong contenders in the past month, India and New Zealand. However, they failed to show the same magic on Wednesday and lost the game by 88 runs. The hosts might post 40-45 in the first six overs.
Death Over scores:
Given that they do have some strong batters who have the potential to change the course of the game with their destructive batting, we should anticipate New Zealand to score 40–45 runs in the final few overs.
Ireland, on the other hand, must remain composed and persistent at the bowling position to counter the New Zealanders’ bowling. In the final few overs, the hosts might still score 35 to 40 runs.
In 20 overs, New Zealand might score 170-180 runs. If Ireland bats first, they could score somewhere between 140 and 150 runs.
Who will win Today’s match between NZ Vs IRE?
Newzealand has completely dominated the tour. Be it Tests, ODI or T20Is, they have outplayed Ireland in all formats. We have seen some good performances from their experienced players but none of them could stretch it to a victory.
The black caps will be confident of another win and they are certainly the favorites to win the final match of the already won series.

NZ Vs IRE Today Dream Prediction:
The Newzealand is playing a whole team which makes it difficult to pick star performers. On the days their batters don’t have the best day, their bowlers are there to save the match. In the last match, we saw both batters and bowlers performing their best and winning the match.
Martin Guptill and Glenn Philips look like key batters for NZ. For Ireland, Harry Tector and Andy Balbirnie will be key players.
In the bowling department, Ish Sodhi, Captain M Santner for Kiwis, and Josh Little and Craig Young are likely to play a crucial role.
