IRE vs SA Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips for 3rd ODI Match, South Africa tour of Ireland, 2021.
Ireland and South Africa will play in the 3rd ODI at The Village, Dublin.
IRE vs SA 3rd ODI Match Preview
Ireland has created history as they have won for the first time against South Africa in the ODI format. Skipper Andy Balbirnie has been scoring runs consistently and scored a century in the last match. Paul Stirling has struggled in this series. Harry Tector also batted well, scoring a fifty, and Dockrell scored quickly but was unlucky to miss fifty by just five runs.
The bowlers have continued their form from the last series. Joshua Little, Andy McBrine, and Mark Adair picked up two wickets each. Craig Young, Simi Singh, and Dockrell managed to pick up a wicket each. Ireland has the upper hand in this series as they have already won a match, and they would be hoping to win the series.
South Africa was much stronger than Ireland, and everyone expected South Africa to win the match, but the result was unexpected in the first match. They lost by a margin of 43 runs. Janneman Malan at the top and in the middle-order, Rassie van der Dussen batted well. Except for the two players, no other batsman was able to score runs.
The strong bowling unit, the team’s primary strength, did not perform up to expectations in the last match. Phelukwayo gave away too many runs but managed to pick up a couple of wickets. Rabada and Shamsi managed to pick up a wicket each. The pressure is now on South Africa to win the final match and draw the series.
