Ireland will square off against South Africa in a historic three-match T20I series starting on Monday, July 19. It will be the first-ever match between these two sides in the shortest format. The first encounter between the two teams will be played at The Village, in Malahide, Dublin and is scheduled to start at 8:30 pm IST.
After the recently concluded three-match ODI series resulted in a 1-1 draw, it has added more curiosity and intrigue to this T20I series. And with ICC World T20 approaching, the hosts who are placed in Round 1 alongside Sri Lanka, Netherlands and Namibia, will have to fight it out for a spot in Super 12 of the upcoming World Cup event. In such a situation, a victory against the Proteas would boost their morale for the big event later this year.
Meanwhile, the visitors who are in Group 1 alongside powerhouses England, Australia and West Indies among others for the T20 World Cup 2021, would want to get further close to their best playing XI for the big tournament. Having beaten West Indies 3-2 earlier this month, they would want to carry forward the knack of winning bilateral series ahead of the world event.
