IRE vs SA Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips, Playing 11, Pitch Report and Injury Update for 2nd ODI

Rassie van der Dussen has an astonishing average of 80.9 in the ODIs.


Ireland will take on South Africa in the 2nd ODI on Tuesday. The 1st ODI was called off due to rain. Despite unfavourable batting conditions, Ireland batters put up a decent score of 195 with the loss of 4 wickets in 40.2 overs. An 87 run-stand for the second wicket between William Porterfield and skipper Andrew Balbirnie was one of the main highlights.

Meanwhile, South Africa rested Quinton de Kock and Anrich Nortje in the 1st ODI. Kagiso Rabada and Lungi Ngidi asked a lot of questions to the Ireland batters in the initial overs. They will be aiming for better bowling performances from others in this match.

Match Details:

Ireland vs South Africa, 2nd ODI

Venue: The Village, Malahide, Dublin

Date & Time: 13th July at 3:15 PM IST and 10:45 AM local time

Pitch Report:

There will be plenty of swing and seam movement in the first hour of play and later the ball comes quite easily onto the bat. Not a lot of turn spinners can expect from this surface. The wicket will become completely flat in the 2nd half of the match, and hence, bowling first is a good option.
