Ireland and South Africa will lock horns in the second and final T20I of the two-match series. South Africa, led by Keshav Maharaj, are leading this series with a 1-0 scoreline after finishing their opening game with 21 runs while defending 211 times.
It was another case of Ireland performing well but falling short this summer, having edged past India and New Zealand very closely earlier this season. Chasing with 212 runs, only two hitters, Lorcan Tucker (78) and George Dockrell (43) crossed the 20-run mark. Lack of support from other players meant that Ireland only got 190 runs in their 20 rounds, which is still a great effort.
On the other hand, South Africa continued its good run on the UK tour and this time, Reeza Hendricks (74) and a quick 56 shot from Aiden Markram pushed them to a total of 211 runs in their 20 laps.
With the ball, Tabraiz Shamsi continued his good work while Keshav Maharaj finished his saving nerve, conceding only 29 times (2 clearances) in his four passes.
The Proteas are keen to wrap up their UK tour while this is Ireland’s last chance to ensure they win across the board this summer.

Ireland vs South Africa XIs possible
The team led by Andrew Balbirnie was unable to make any changes even though the team lost in the first game. Joshua Little conceding 55 times on his spell is unsettling but the midfielder has been one of the better pitchers for Ireland this season.
XI may occur: Paul Stirling, Andrew Balbirnie (C), Lorcan Tucker (WK), Harry Tector, Gareth Delany, Curtis Campher, George Dockrell, Mark Adair, Andy McBrine, Barry McCarthy, Joshua Little.
South Africa can expect a few players to rest and we could see Gerald Coetzee play in place of Lungi Ngidi, who has played almost every game on this tour.
XI may occur: Quinton de Kock (WK), Reeza Hendricks, Rassie van der Dussen, Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen, Tristan Stubbs, Dwaine Pretorius, Wayne Parnell, Keshav Maharaj (C), Lungi Ngidi / Gerald Coetzee, Tabraiz Shamsi.
Ireland vs South Africa prediction
That’s been the case so far for Ireland this summer against the top member states. The first T20I followed the same story and fans expect the same thing to happen again. South Africa are also the favorites to win a second T20I.
