Ireland created history by defeating South Africa for the 1st time in the ODIs. They are just one step away from winning the series. Completely dominating performances both with the bat and ball gave them a 43-run victory in the 2nd ODI. Veteran batter William Porterfield missed the 2nd ODI due a fractured finger, but he is likely to play in the 3rd ODI.
South African bowlers leaked many runs in the death overs and an inexperienced middle-order made them lose the 2nd ODI. They now find themselves under all sorts of pressure to win the 3rd ODI, so as to level the series 1-1. Quinton de Kock, who was rested for the first 2 ODIs, is expected to play in this match.
