IRE vs SA 2nd T20
South Africa won by 44 runs
Lorcan Tucker looked a class apart from the rest of his team-mates with the bat in the opening game. He hit 78 runs from 38 balls and we expect him to be Ireland’s highest run scorer against South Africa. Josh Little took 1-55 on Wednesday but always finds a way to take wickets. He is our pick for Ireland’s top wicket taker in this match.
We are backing Reeza Hendricks to continue his impressive run of scores in this format. He hit 74 runs from 53 balls in the opening game and has scored successive IT20 half-centuries at this venue. He is our tip for South Africa’s highest run scorer. With the ball, Tabraiz Shamsi has taken 10 wickets from his last three IT20s. He is our recommendation for South Africa’s top wicket taker against Ireland.
South Africa scored eight sixes on Wednesday and they will back themselves to clear the fence on many occasions in this IT20. We suggest South Africa to hit over 7.5 sixes in this game as a strong bet.

The second and final IT20 between Ireland and South Africa takes place on Friday evening in Bristol. Although the opener was played in front of a sparse crowd at the same venue, those in attendance were treated to an excellent contest with South Africa coming out on top by 21 runs. Read on as we preview this day-night IT20. The match gets underway at the County Ground, Bristol at 18:30 local time.
Ireland were an economical bowler and one more batter away from winning the game on Wednesday. They are very close to the top teams but have gone missing at crucial moments over recent IT20s.
South Africa were a worried side with around 20 balls remaining and Lorcan Tucker going well for Ireland. However, they have vast experience in their bowling attack and that will probably be enough again in this clash.

South Africa won the toss and chose to bat first on Wednesday. Ireland would have chosen to field first and we expect to see the teams bat in the same order in this game irrespective of who wins the toss.
IRE vs SA Pitch Report
As expected, there were plenty of sixes and fours at this ground for the opening game. Expect the pace-off bowlers to have the most success alongside the pacers with strong slower-balls.
There will be some cloud cover but expect a good amount of sun before it sets. 40% humidity with a pleasant breeze.

Ireland Team News & Playing 11
IRE Team News
Craig Young was ruled out of the opening game of the series through injury and we do not think there will be sufficient time for him to recover for this match. His replacement, George Dockrell, struck 43 runs from 28 balls and will keep his place in the side.
IRE Key Players
Paul Stirling - With 18 runs from 11 balls at the top of the order, the right-hander got his team off to a flying start on Wednesday. If he could last the opening half of the innings then Ireland will have gone a long way towards victory.
Lorcan Tucker - The 25 year old keeper-batter was the standout performer for Ireland in Bristol in the opening game. He dominated the South African bowlers from ball one and struck 12 boundaries.
Josh Little - The left-arm pace bowler recorded the fourth most expensive figures by an Ireland bowler on Wednesday. However, he showed he is a strike bowler and picked up a wicket for the ninth successive IT20.
IRE Team Form
Ireland have now lost seven straight IT20s. They are playing good cricket but are lacking that added bit of quality against the top teams.
Ireland Predicted Playing 11
Paul Stirling, Andy Balbirnie (c), Gareth Delany, Harry Tector, Curtis Campher, Lorcan Tucker (wk), George Dockrell, Mark Adair, Andy McBrine, Josh Little, Barry McCarthy
South Africa Team News & Playing 11
SA Team News
Keshav Maharaj took over the captaincy of the side after David Miller suffered lower back spasms before the game on Wednesday. However, we expect Miller to be back to lead the team in this game. We expect Wayne Parnell to be given another opportunity and out of form Quinton de Kock to retain his place in the XI.
SA Key Players
Reeza Hendricks - The right handed top-order batter can make IT20 history in this match. If he hits a half-century, he will become the first player to do so in five successive games in this format.
Aiden Markram - The middle order batter provided some excellent momentum to the innings on Wednesday. He has scored 51 not-out and 56 in his two IT20 appearances in England this summer.
Tabraiz Shamsi - The left-arm spinner was played with immense respect by Ireland’s batters in his early overs in the opening game. He dismissed Lorcan Tucker and Gareth Delany.
SA Team Form
South Africa have registered three successive IT20 victories. They have never won four in a row and will be targeting doing so in this game.
South Africa Predicted Playing 11
Quinton de Kock (wk), Reeza Hendricks, Heinrich Klaasen, Rassie van der Dussen, Aiden Markram, David Miller (c), Tristan Stubbs, Wayne Parnell, Keshav Maharaj, Lungi Ngidi, Tabraiz Shamsi
We saw over 400 runs in Wednesday’s game in Bristol and we are predicting another high scoring fixture on Friday evening. Ireland should be encouraged by recent performances and will surely perform well at the T20 World Cup in a couple of months. However, South Africa are a class above and we expect another win for South Africa.
South Africa are favourites to beat Ireland at odds of 1.12
