Who will win Ireland vs New Zealand 3rd T20I Match today?

Ireland will be gutted after the thrashing in the second T20I. They have played much better cricket than that in this home season but have missed out on winning around 4 limited-overs matches, one against India and three against New Zealand.

But they will admit that the T20I side is still a work in progress and there is a lot of scope for improvement. They would love to finish this series on a high which will be a reward for all the hard work they have put this season.

New Zealand have only improved on this tour as they have played more matches. The Kiwis have been ruthless in T20Is winning by 31 and 88 runs respectively. With the T20 World Cup approaching fast, they wouldn’t want to relax and whitewash the home team.

Ireland and New Zealand have played three T20 Internationals against each other so far and all three matches have been won by the Kiwis.

New Zealand are expected to win the third and final T20I against Ireland.
