Bet Now

South Africa and Ireland will be dejected with the abandoned result in the first ODI game. Both teams come into this series with not so great record in the ODIs in the recent matches and were eager to prove themselves. Ireland will look to continue their good showing in this match after a good performance in the first game when they were given very less chances against South Africa team. South Africa on the other hand will be aware of their strengths of their opponents and will never take them lightly going ahead in this series.

Ireland Preview

Ireland scored 195 runs off 40.2 overs before rain came to end the match prematurely. William Porterfeld (63 runs) and Andrew Balbirnie (65 runs) scored fifties and laid the foundation for their innings for the lower order to take charge. Harry Tector was untimely dismissed for 25 while Mark Adair looked all set to shift gears with a couple of sixes.

Ireland went ahead with four pacers Andy McBrine, Mark Adair, Craig Young, and Joshua Little in the playing Xi in the first game and we expect them to continue the same XI. All-rounders Simi Singh and George Dockrell filled the spin bowling shoes for the team in the middle overs.

Top players to bet on:

Andrew Balbirnie – Balbirnie scored a brilliant 65 runs off 87 runs and formed two good partnerships with William Porterfield and Harry Tector to lead their innings. He fought his time out in the middle overs against Spin bowlers of the South Africa.

Joshua Little – Little picked up 8 wickets at an economy rate of 3.5 RPO in the 3 matches against Netherlands and ended up as the highest wicket-taker among both teams.  We expect him to continue his good showing with the ball in this match too.

Ireland Predicted Playing XI:

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

Ireland Actual Playing XI:

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

South Africa Preview

Janneman Malan and Aiden Markram will open the batting ahead of the in-form Quinton De Kock. Rassie Van Der Dussen, Temba Bavuma, and Kyle Verreynne formed the core of the the middle order.  David Miller and Andile Phehlukwayo are expected to provide the finishing touches to their innings.

Kagiso Rabada lead the bowling attack with a couple of wickets but Irish players looked to attack him. Keshav Maharaj, Lungi Ngidi, and Tabraiz Shamsi bowled economically and gave runs at less than 4.5 RPO in their combined 25 overs. Andile Phehelukwayo showcased his slow ball pyrotechnics in his spell of 7-1-39-1.

Top players to bet on:

Aiden Markram – Markram was ear-marked as one of the quality players from South Africa at a very young age. He has been in good form in the last T20I series against West Indies and we expect him perform well in this match too.  

Kagiso Rabada – Rabada had bowling figures of 8.2-2-43-2 in the last game. He bowled 27 dot balls in his first 5 overs in the powerplay and was almost unplayable at times. We expect him to continue his superb form in this match too.

South Africa Predicted Playing XI:

Aiden Markram, Rassie Van Der Dussen, Temba Bavuma (c), Kyle Verennye (wk), David Miller, Janneman Malan, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Andile Phehelukwayo, Keshav Maharaj, Tabraiz Shamsi

South Africa Actual Playing XI:

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

Weather Conditions

Dublin weather looks better for this game with less than 20% chances of rain. We expect to get a full quota of overs in this match with no weather disturbances.

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 250-270 runs in this wicket.

Toss: To Bowl

South Africa opt to chase the target in the first match and we expect both teams to continue the same trend in this match.

South Africa is steadily progressing in all formats of the game with individual players standing up with the bat and ball effectively. They never allowed the opposition to take charge despite a big partnership with tidy overs in the middle phase. Ireland showed a lot of class and composure in the first game and were looking all set for a grand finish.  They will take confidence from this performance and will look to give a tough fight to South Africa. We expect South Africa to win this match owing to better experience in the international stage.

South Africa will win the match
