IRE vs SA 2nd T20I Match Preview
Ireland would be disappointed with their 1st T20I as they lost by a margin of 33 runs. The bowlers performed well, but the batsmen were not up to the mark. The experienced duo, Stirling and Kevin O’Brien, got out early. Skipper Balbirnie and Harry Tector batted well and tried their best to fight back. In the end, Barry also scored some runs, but it was too late.
The bowling unit did an excellent job by picking up wickets at regular intervals and restricting runs’ flow. Mark Adair picked up three wickets. Joshua Little and Simi Singh managed to pick up two wickets each. The batsmen need to show some patience and not throw away their wickets to win the match.
South Africa has started the series on a good note as they won the 1st T20I comfortably by 33 runs. Quinton de Kock gave an explosive start but got out early. Skipper Bavuma and Malan fell early without scoring much. Aiden Markram and Rassie van der Dussen batted well and rebuilt the innings. Miller and Rabada scored some crucial runs and helped the team to reach a good total.
The bowlers were in good rhythm as they picked up wickets right from the first over. Tabraiz Shamsi was brilliant and picked up four wickets. Linde and Ngidi picked up two wickets each, and Rabada picked up one wicket. South Africa may want to white-wash Ireland this series.
