Zimbabwe opened the three match T20I series with a win as Ireland‘s batters struggled to make an impact on the game in Harare – here’s where to watch the full ZIM vs IRE series live on TV and live streaming platforms.

There will be a further two T20Is in the series, before the two sides play three ODIs.

The match also saw Gary Ballance make his T20I debut for Zimbabwe, making 30 off 29 as Zimbabwe chased their target of just 115. They finished 118-5 off 18 overs with Sean Williams’ 34* off 30 balls leading the scoring for the Chevrons.


Zimbabwe and Ireland met nine times before the ongoing series, and Ireland held a 5-4 lead. Ireland beat Zimbabwe at the 2014 T20 World Cup. Zimbabwe drew a bilateral series in Ireland 1-1 in 2019, and won another 3-2 in 2021. However, Ireland beat Zimbabwe again at the 2021 T20 World Cup, taking the record at ICC tournaments to 2-0.
