IRE vs SA 2nd ODI: Possible Playing 11 of Ireland


IRE Playing 11: After a rain-hit first ODI, Ireland will face South Africa in the second ODI here at Malahide, Dublin. The hosts posted a competitive 195/4 in just over 40 overs before the rain interrupted and the match couldn’t be started again. Their batting showed resilience and skill to put up a fight against a strong South African bowling attack. Ireland will be satisfied with their performance and would look to repeat the same. In 6 matches played between these teams, South Africa have won 5 and the last match produced no result.

Team News

  • The Irish had a fairly good outing in the last match and they will look to go with an unchanged combination.
  • Wicketkeeper-batsman Neil Rock has contracted Covid-19. Stephen Doheny has been called up as his replacement.

The experience of Ireland’s top three makes them a decent batting unit. In the last match against a quality bowling attack, they were able to grind it out and looked set for a decent total. Skipper Balbirnie looked in good touch which was a great sign. If Stirling gets amongst the runs, he can turn the match away. The bowling looks decent in these conditions. Craig Young can swing the new ball while Josh Little brings the exception of a left-arm seamer.
