Ireland v South Africa 2nd T20I – Betting Tips and Predictions
It feels like that ODI loss early in this tour has given the Proteas the wake-up call they needed.
Since then they have been much better and are looking to dominate this T20I series. They won the last game with plenty in hand and can do so again.
Looking at other markets is the best way of spotting some value betting opportunities.
Back Ngidi for Top Bowler
The 25-year-old pacer looks in decent form at present and was rewarded with two wickets in the last game.
He has been inconsistent at times but looks worth siding with for this one.
Ngidi took wickets in the West Indies before this series and he will have been buoyed by his last outing.
Conditions in Belfast should suit him and his price of 4.0 with 22Bet is appealing.
Malan is Value
While Janneman Malan may have fallen early in the first T20I, it is hard not to have been impressed in his ODI form heading into this series.
He chalked up a half-century in a T20I against Pakistan in April and could be among the runs once more.
Malan is available at 4.0 with bet365 to be South Africa’s top batsman.
Little to Star for Ireland
Ireland bowler Josh Little has been consistent this tour and added another two wickets in the first match of this series.
He has six wickets in his last two games and should get more assistance from this surface than he got in Dublin.
Backing him to be Ireland’s top bowler looks the way to go, especially with the 21-year-old appearing to have plenty of improvement still to unlock.
His price is 3.5 with 22Bet.
