When and Where to Watch Ireland vs South Africa Live Streaming, Match Preview, Timings, and Pitch Report for 2nd ODI
The weather forecast for the match is much better than what it was on Sunday in Dublin.

The first ODI between South Africa and Ireland on Sunday at The Village was called off due to rain. William Porterfield and Andrew Balbirnie were going great guns, having scored an impressive half-century.
But after 40.2 overs, the heavens opened up and ended up playing spoilsport. Kagiso Rabada picked a couple of wickets and looked good, though he conceded runs at over five per over.
Ireland did a reasonable job with the bat in hand after being put in to bat first. The second game of the series is set to take place on Tuesday, July 13 at the same venue. Unlike Sunday, the weather forecast for Tuesday is much more promising.
Though there will be clouds, there are no chances of rain. Hence, an uninterrupted match can be expected. Keeping in mind the nature of the pitch last time, a high-scoring game can be expected.
Playing combination for IRE vs SA
Ireland aren’t likely to make any changes to their playing eleven. Porterfield and Balbirnie would want to carry forward their momentum in the upcoming game as well. Paul Stirling strained after his pain-staking 40-ball 13. It’s time for him to get some runs as well. The Irish bowlers weren’t tested in the previous match and it remains to be seen how they do when put under some pressure.

Like Ireland, the Proteas aren’t likely to tinker with their winning combination either. Among their bowlers, Lungi Ngidi and Keshav Maharaj were the only ones, who couldn’t pick up a wicket. Rabada was their standout bowler as apart from picking two wickets, he also bowled a couple of maidens. Their batters didn’t get a hit last time around and would want some game-time in the middle.
