IRE vs SA Dream11 team 1st T20I: who will win today match prediction?


IRE vs SA dream11 today match prediction: After a drawn ODI series courtesy rain, where both the teams finished with a win each, the shortest format is back and this will be a great series for both the teams to experiment things for the upcoming marquee event in WT20.

South Africa are fresh off from a magnificent hard fought series victory against the mighty West Indians in their home and they are playing their full strength side as well for this series as they just cant take Ireland lightly after what happened in the 2nd ODI where they rested their star batsman in Quinton de Kock .

Ireland have some excellent hitters tailor made for T20 cricket but South Africa have a good spin attack and it will be crucial to see how they handle the spinners.

IRE vs SA dream11 team

In dream11 prediction, lets bring out the strengths and weaknesses of both the teams.

  • Ireland have dynamic openers at the top with Kevin O’Brein and Paul Stirling holding fort. Both compliment each other really well with pace and spin power hitting.
  • South Africa will be opening with Temba Bavuma but he is turning out to be a baggage in the team and he should get some score under his belt big time.
  • Tabraiz Shamsi was magnificent against West Indies who have some legendary spin hitters under their ranks. Ireland have task cut out against the chinaman.
  • Wiaan Mulder grabbed the opportunity with both hands in the Windies series and he will be looking to build on from that series.
  • The presence of Quinton de Kock in middle overs is a crucial thing as SA don’t have any other LHB in their middle order.

Today match prediction

Who will win today match: South Africa start the game as favorites and no surprises in that as they have momentum on their side. Ireland need to bowl their skins out to stop the dangerman Quinton de Kock who is in the form of his life at the moment.

Kagiso Rabada has been disappointing off late but his quality is there for everyone to see and its just a matter of time before he finds his rhythm back as far as white ball cricket is concerned.
