ire vs rsa Match Prediction & Analysis

South Africa and Ireland have never played a bi-lateral series against each other and they have so far met only in the World Cup games and one-off matches. South Africa come into this series on a high after winning the Test and T20I series convincingly against the West Indies. But, Their ODI form has been a bit of concern and we expect them to make a big turnaround in this series. Ireland have been playing very less matches and the concept OF ICC ODI league cycle has given them matches against top-ranked teams. They will look to win some matches and shoe their potential to the world.

Teams Preview

Ireland Preview

Ireland have experienced players in form of Paul Stirling, William Porterfield and Skipper Andrew Balbirnie alongside exciting young players such as Harry Tector, Curtis Campher, and Lorcan Tucker in the batting department. They have good depth in batting department with spin all-rounders George Dockrell and Simi Singh very capable with the bat.

They have a superb pace attack with the likes of Andy McBrine, Barry McCarthy, Joshua Little, Mark Adair, and Craig Young. They are expected to go in with four pacers and Mark Adair is expected to miss out. Simi Singh will lead the spin attack with George Dockrell for the company.

Top players to bet on:

Paul Stirling – Stirling is the Ireland`s highest run-getter in the limited overs cricket and he had been in excellent in the English county cricket recently. We expect him to bring his good form into this series too.    

Joshua Little – Little had a good series with the ball against Netherlands despite his team losing the series. He picked up 8 wickets at an economy rate of 3.5 RPO in the 3 matches and ended up as the highest wicket-taker.  

Ireland Predicted Playing XI:

Paul Stirling, William Porterfield, Andrew Balbirnie (C), Harry Tector/Curtis Campher, Lorcan Tucker (Wk), Simi Singh, George Dockrell, Andy McBrine, Barry McCarthy, Joshua Little, Craig Young

Ireland Actual Playing XI:

Mark Adair, Simi Singh, Andy McBrine, Craig Young, George Dockrell, William Porterfield, Joshua Little, Paul Stirling, Lorcan Tucker, Harry Tector, Andy Balbirnie

South Africa Preview

Temba Bavuma will be excited after his success as a skipper in the very first tour.  Quinton De Kock and Aiden Markram are expected to open the batting with the likes of Rassie Van Der Dussen, Temba Bavuma, and David Miller in the middle order.  Janneman Malan and Reeza Hendricks might fight out for the last spot in the batting line-up.

Pace trio of Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, and Lungi Ngidi were superb in the Caribbean but team might opt for a bowling all-rounder in form of Dwaine Pretorius or Andile Phehlukwayo. Spin duo of Tabraiz Shamsi and Geiorge Linde are expected to be the first choice in playing XI with Bjorn Fortuin as a back-up.

Top players to bet on:

Quinton De Kock – De Kock was the highest run-getter in both test and T20Is scoring nearly 500 runs and out batting all the other players comfortably. He will be high on confidence and will be very destructive at the top of the order.

Tabraiz Shamsi – Shamsi was unplayable in the T20Is and scalped 7 wickets at an unbelievable economy rate of 4 RPO. He can be big trump card for South Africa in the middle overs.  

South Africa Predicted Playing XI:

Quinton De Kock (wk), Aiden Markram, Rassie Van Der Dussen, Temba Bavuma (c), David Miller, Janneman Malan, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Andile Phehelukwayo/Dwaine Pretorius, George Line, Tabraiz Shamsi

South Africa Actual Playing XI:

Kyle Verreynne, Tabraiz Shamsi, Lungi Ngidi, Aiden Markram, Temba Bavuma, David Miller, Kagiso Rabada, Janneman Malan, Keshav Maharaj, Andile Phehlukwayo, Rassie van der Dussen

Weather Conditions

Dublin weather does not look promising with nearly 75% chances of rain as per the forecasters. Rain might play spoilsport or reduce overs in this match.

Venue Details

Dublin has a good balance between the bat and ball with some purchase for both spinners and pacers. Batsmen will find it easier once they settle on this pitch. We expect an average score of 250-170 runs in this wicket.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing is the best option when you are unaware of the situation on a new pitch. And with rain threat looming and DLS equation coming into play, we expect both captains to bowl first in this match.  

IRE vs RSA Winning Prediction

South Africa is one of the top teams in cricket and are recently going through a slump in form. They will take confidence of their last tour and look to win more matches in this series and surge ahead in the ICC ODI league points table.  Ireland have got an experienced batting and bowling line-up who can be lethal in their home conditions especially. They will look to take advantage of south Africa`s recent struggles in the ODI format and look to win this match.  We expect South Africa to win this match.

South Africa will win the match
