Shaheen Afridi (PAK): The left-arm pacer has been lethal with the new ball and showcased his abilities with the old kookaburra as well. Afridi has bucketed four wickets from two matches with a bowling average of 18.75.

Harry Tector (IRE): The right-handed batter would be gutted to not have  converted his starts in the couple of T20Is so far. Tector has ticked up 68 runs from two matches with an average of 34 and a strike rate of 123.64. 

Andy Balbirnie (IRE): The former Ireland skipper stitched a match-winning 77 in the first game to topple the visitors. He has an average of 46.50 in the series and the strike rate reads 134.78 after 93 runs.
