IRE vs SA 1st ODI: Possible Playing 11 of South Africa


SA Playing 11: After a successful tour of West Indies, South Africa will start their Ireland tour with the ODI series due to be started at Dublin. The visitors will be high on confidence after defeating a powerful WI side at home. Ireland series can be a perfect platform for South Africa to test their bench strength. But firstly, they will look to start the series positively. SA have defeated Ireland in all of the 5 ODIs played between these teams before. The Proteas will be aware of the threat that Ireland can pose in home conditions.

Markram and de Kock have been in good form at the top and they will be expected to give a good start here. The middle order looks solid but lack of allrounders limits the bowling options for South Africa. Rabada and Nortje have been picking up wickets and they will pose a big threat to the Irish batsmen. Shamsi was SA’s biggest positive during the West Indies tour. He has developed himself as a reliable wicket-taking option in the middle overs.
