Ireland to face South Africa on 5th August 2022 for the 2nd match of the 2-match T20I series

Ireland will be facing South Africa on August 5th, 2022 for the 2nd match of the 2-match T20I series at the County Ground, Bristol. Ireland had to face defeat against the Proteas in the last match by 21 runs. Ireland has had no luck in the limited over series in the last 2 months. The Irish team had first blanked 0-2 by a second-string Indian side at home, and then they also lost the series against New Zealand with the final series score at 3-0 in favour of the Kiwis. The Irish team have a lot of work to do in the T20 format but is expected to come out all guns blazing with the series on the line in the 2nd match. 

The spirited Proteas seem unstoppable in this format for the last couple of months and have continued their form against the Irish in the opening match of the series. In the last couple of months, South Africa faced the top-ranked Indian team in a bilateral T20I series, where they levelled the series. They also scored a 2-1 series win over England in their own backyard. It is safe to say that the Proteas are peaking, a strong statement ahead of the T20 World Cup.

It is easier to bat on the pitch in the second innings, however, as both teams will be looking to play their strengths by putting runs up on the board and then adding pressure on the opposition. We can expect the captain that wins the toss to look to bat first.
