IRE vs. SA Today Match Prediction, 3rd ODI, 16th July 2021

KhelTalk is the only destination that brings you the finest today’s match prediction that you can trust. We are here for IRE vs. SA Today Match Prediction, 3rd ODI, Online Cricket Betting Tips, which will provide every user with a clear picture of which team and in what aspect they can place their bets.


Ireland started this series as underdogs, but they are one win away from a historic series win against the Proteas. Ireland’s captain Andy Balbirnie before the start of the series said he would be disappointed if Ireland doesn’t qualify for the 2022 World Cup, given the talent in his side. Surely his side has proved him in the right with their performances. In both ODI’s, Ireland batters have looked so comfortable against the mighty SA bowling lineup. The big names like Rabada and Nortje all have been unable to scare young Ireland batters.

Before coming into this series, Ireland lost against Netherlands and Afghanistan, but they have turned the tables around. They currently sit in 9th position on ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League with 7 losses and only 2 wins. Going into this series, they were under enormous pressure. Their star all-rounder Kevin O’Brien recently announced his retirement, which shocked Ireland cricket. Surely this performance in this series has given a new ray of hope for them.

  • Ireland registered their first-ever win against South Africa in any format in this series.
  • PR Stirling has scored the most runs (586) in the 2021 ODI’s.
  • Simi Singh is the highest wicket-taker of 2021 ODI’s with 13 wickets.

South Africa

South Africa came into series with a big reputation and form. They recently defeated West Indies in T20I’s away. Coming to series, their Temba Bavuma announced the strong squad and decided against resting key players. In both matches, South African bowlers have found it difficult against Ireland batters. Ireland batters have been patient against top world-class bowlers like Rabada and Nortje.

South Africa is currently at 11th position in ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League. They do not want to lose more points against low-ranked sides like Ireland. After 1st ODI was washed out, they decided to include Nortje, but he couldn’t trouble Irish batters. He finished wicket-less in 2nd ODI. Although in 2nd ODI, they were unable to chase the target of 291 as the pitch became slowed in the 2nd innings, it can’t be the reason for a top-quality side like them. They will look to bounce back and avoid a series of defeats against Ireland.

  • Rassie van der Dussen averages 116.00 in 2021 ODI’s.
  • Kagiso Rabada’s bowling average is 39.00 in 2021 ODIs.
  • Janneman Malan has scored 50+ runs 3 times in the last 4 ODI innings.

Top Batsmen in this series for South Africa

  • Rassie van der Dussen– 49 runs in 1 inning, 49 average
  • David Miller– 24 runs in 1 inning, 24 average

  • Rain: 15%
  • Humidity 67%
  • Wind speed: 17 km/h.

Pitch Report

Pitch slowed in 2nd half, but fast bowlers were always in the game. Rabada made the most use of conditions in the first innings. Pacers can exert swing and pace from pitch in initial overs. Spinners will play a vital role as pitch slows down. The captain would like to bat first and put runs on the board on this wicket.

IRE vs. SA – Who will win the match, Today Match Prediction:

South Africa is expected to win the match against Ireland

KhelTalk experts feel that South Africa will win against Ireland. After the last match’s shock result, South Africa will come hard at Ireland. South Africa can’t take this match lightly as they already lost against Pakistan in 2021, and a loss against Ireland would affect their ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League tally. South Africa has only lost once against Ireland in their history, and it happened in the last match. We expect South Africa to win this match and level the series.

Top Batsman from Ireland – Paul Stirling (Odds- 3.25)

Irish opening batsman Paul Stirling has been in dream form this year. He is the top scorer of ODI in 2021 with 586 runs. Although he didn’t score big runs so far in this series, he has got the starts. He would want to convert these start and score big in this final encounter. To win this series, Ireland would be hoping to get runs from their premier batsmen. The form he is in 2021, whether it’s ODI’s or PSL, he has scored everywhere. He is our top pick for batsman from Ireland.

Top Batsman from South Africa – Janneman Malan (Odds- 3.60)

After making his ODI debut in 2020 against Australia, he scored 1 century and 2 half-centuries in 5 innings. He has been unlucky not to play many matches because of the set opening combination of De Kock and Markram but he has scored in every opportunity he got. In this series, South Africa decided to rest De Kock, and Malan has made most of this opportunity. He scored a good 73 in 2nd Odi. He is our top batsman from South Africa Team.

Top Bowler from Ireland – Craig Young (Odds- 3.75)

Craig Young is the right-arm fast bowler, and he has picked 11 wickets in 2021 ODI’s with an impressive economy of 4.70. He relies on the swing, and the Dublin pitch is tailor-made for him. In 2nd Odi, he picked the crucial wicket of Markram. He knows how to exploit Irish pitches, and surely he is the biggest threat for South African batters in initial overs.

Top Bowler from South Africa  – Kagiso Rabada (Odds- 3.25)

Kagiso Rabada is one of the most lethal bowlers in the world. 2021 has not been one of his best years. He averaged 39 with the bowl in ODI and looked off-color in  IPL also. In this series, he kind of coming back to his groove. He has picked 3 wickets from 2 matches and looked threatening. Since it is a must-win encounter for South Africa, he would want to take them home with his bowling. Kagiso Rabada is a proven player, and you can’t look beyond him as a top bowler.
