South Africa and Ireland will be playing each other tomorrow for the second and final T20I of the series where South Africa has taken a lead of 1-0 and would look to vanquish the Irish completely in the second game as well. Keshav Maharaj is leading the team for the series and in the first game South Africa won the game by a margin of 21 runs and they were defending a massive target of 211.
Ireland on the other hand will have to look at what went wrong for them in the game. They did well to bring their score as close as possible to the Proteas but fell short in the end. Only Lorcan Tucker and George Dockrell had 20-plus scores in the game. But, the other batters not contributing meant that the Irish could muster only 190 on the board in their 20 overs. Ireland earlier also came close to the scores of India and New Zealand in their previous series.
Thus, tomorrow’s game will be a fighting contest between the two sides with South Africa looking to take away the series.
