IRE vs SA 2nd ODI Match Preview


Ireland is a little less intense in terms of cricket when compared to South Africa, and it will be a mighty task to win against them. William Porterfield batted well in the last match scoring a fifty, but his partner Paul Stirling couldn’t score much. Skipper Andrew Balbirnie has been in excellent form in the ODI format; scoring runs consistently.

They also have a couple of good bowlers Joshua Little and Craig Young, who had performed exceptionally well in the last series against the Netherlands. Andy McBirnie is also a good bowler, and Simi Singh can perform well with bat and ball. As the first match was washed out, Ireland has an excellent chance of tieing the series if not for a win.

South Africa:

South Africa is expected to win this series easily as they are way stronger than Ireland, and they performed well in the first match before it got washed out. Aiden Markram and Quinton de Kock are likely to open the innings for the team, and they have been in perfect form. Skipper Temba Bavuma is struggling a bit, but the middle-order looks solid with players like Miller, Rassie van der Dussen and Kyle Verreynne.

The bowling unit is powerful as the pace trio Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, and Anrich Nortje will pose many problems to the opposition. In addition to them, Pheukwayo and spinners Keshav and Shamsi can pick up some crucial wickets. South Africa should be easily winning this series.
