The South African team is currently on a winning streak and in great. On the other hand, Ireland has been losing even though they play good and competitive cricket. So far, Ireland has been having a terrible summer. The Irish team led by Andy Balbirnie recently lost all of their T20I games. Ireland will surely want to beat the great-looking South African team and get back to winning momentum.
Both the batsmen and the bowlers for Ireland need to do better. In the first T20I against South Africa, their bowlers gave up runs, and their openers didn’t get off to a good start. On the other hand, South Africa leads the series 1-0, and they will try to win the last T20I on Friday to make it 2-0.
