The second T20I between South Africa and Ireland is set to take place in Belfast.
South Africans came up trumps with the ball in the previous game as the likes of Tabraiz Shamsi and Lungi Ngidi wreaked havoc. Although their middle-order batsmen couldn’t fire in the backend of the innings, South Africa were able to overcome a spirited Irish side with relative ease.
Ireland unit that can’t hold their own with the bat. However, they possess an explosive batting unit comprising of Andrew Balbirnie and Paul Stirling. With a slew of all-rounders providing ample balance in the side, one wouldn’t want to discount Ireland’s chances of winning the game.
A competitive track beckons with some help on offer for both the batsmen and bowlers.
