IRE vs RSA Prediction - Aug 05, 2022

The series of heartbreaks continues for Ireland. It was yet another day of good fight shown from the Irish side only to fall short towards the end of the game. With the ICC T20 World Cup getting closer with every passing match, Ireland's captain would be hoping to have their share of luck in the matches to follow.

Ireland are set to meet South Africa again, for the second time in the series, and will be looking to square the series. South Africa, on the other hand, are on a roll at the moment and will be confident of securing another win here. It wasn't easy in the first match and they will want to iron out the wrinkles in their game.

The second T20I of the series between Ireland and South Africa is to be played on the evening of 5th August 2022 at the County Ground, Bristol. The first one proved to be a cracker of a contest and we expect nothing different from the second one too. Certainly not the one to miss.

IRE vs RSA Team Previews


Ireland are in a bittersweet situation as of now. They are doing pretty well, actually better than they were expected to, but are not getting the results they would want. They were found short of where they needed to be yet another time and will be kicking themselves as they lost yet another chance to pull off an upset.

They are trailing the series 0-1 and will be keen to level that with a win here in this upcoming match. While South Africa managed to score 211 batting first, Ireland would not be too concerned given the nature of the surface that was on offer and the ground dimensions. Having said that, they will certainly want to improve their execution moving forward.

With the bat, Ireland look a pretty balanced side with the likes of Paul Stirling, Andy Balbirnie, Lorcan Tucker, and Harry Tector all doing well in recent matches. Apart from George Dockrell, we haven't seen their lower middle-order fire and that will certainly be a cause of concern for them. They do have the necessary resources available on paper, but executing things well is important against strong sides and they will know that.

On the bowling front, they do have multiple options and they showcased that, using as many as seven bowlers in the first match. However, their bowlers will need to be a bit more tight, be it in the powerplay or at the death, to induce more errors from the opponent batsmen.

All in all, they have a decent side and the advantage of playing in familiar conditions should help them. They would need to be at their toes yet again and if they are able to handle the crunch situations better, they will be well in business big time.

South Africa

South Africa were never considered to be a force before the last T20 World Cup, but they can certainly not be neglected now, at least not when they are consistently getting better of top-rated sides. They defeated England 2-1 in the recently concluded T20I series and are on their way to script a whitewash over Ireland as well. To add to their credit, they are yet to finalize their playing eleven and have experimented a bit in almost every match that they have played of late.

Against Ireland in the first match as well, we saw them rest Rilee Rossouw, who was coming off a fantastic fifty against England in the preceding match. So good is their batting though that Rossouw's absence was never felt. Aiden Markram and Reeza Hendricks contributed superbly to take South Africa's total of 211, which proved to be a bit too much for the hosts to overhaul.

On the bowling front as well, South Africa are looking well settled. The likes of Kagiso Rabada, Keshav Maharaj, Dwaine Pretorius, and Tabraiz Shamsi are doing excellent jobs each and will be keen to continue with that. They held their nerves beautifully in the first match as that proved to be the difference between the two sides.

All in all, South Africa have a fairly new side and even though they are improving and getting better with every passing match, there aren't many flaws that they have exhibited up until now. They have an immaculately balanced side on paper and if they are able to play to their potential in the second match too, Ireland will have their work cut out.

This may not be a match as important as some of the other matches these two sides would have played, but no team would be taking it lightly. South Africa would want to script a whitewash here and move a step closer to finalizing their playing eleven for the World Cup. Ireland, on the other hand, will be looking for a win to give their fans something to cheer about. Both these sides have some explosive players and a cracker of a contest is on the cards. Considering how the two teams have done in their recent matches and their respective team combinations on paper, a bet on South Africa win should be the way to go here.
