Ireland v South Africa 3rd ODI – Match Preview

Ireland secured their first ODI success against the Proteas in the previous game and now lead this series 1-0 heading into the final clash.

South Africa will be hurting after that loss in the 2nd ODI and can hit back quickly here.

Where: The Village, Dublin

When: Friday, 16 July 2021

Start time: 15:15 IST (9:45 GMT)

Pitch conditions: Batting second looks the way to go at this ground if recent results are anything to go by. However, that didn’t work for South Africa in the last contest. A first-innings score of  280+ should be competitive.

Weather conditions: It is a mostly bright day in Dublin for this match. There is a little cloud cover early in the day but only a slight chance of rain showers.

Ireland v South Africa 3rd ODI – Team News

  • Andrew Balbirnie – The Ireland skipper hit a ton in the last game to help his side to a memorable victory. He will agains have a big part to play at the top of the order.
  • Curtis Campher – The all-rounder is back from injury but didn’t feature with the bat or ball in the last game. That could change in this one.
  • Janneman Malan – The opener has been in good form ahead of this series and struck a well-measured 84 in the previous meeting. 
  • Quinton de Kock – The left-handed batsman didn’t feature in the last game but could come back into the side for this vital fixture as his side look to save the series.
  • Anrich Nortje – The pace bowler struggled to take wickets in the previous clash and, like his team, will have to do better this time around.

Ireland v South Africa 3rd ODI – Betting Tips and Predictions

Ireland upset the Proteas last time out and now stand on the brink of an unlikely series success.

It is likely we’ll see a big reaction by South Africa after that loss and they are rightly favourites to come out on top.

However, given their short price for the outright win, looking at other markets is the best way to find some value bets.

Tector Can Fire Again

Harry Tector added important runs in the previous game and also made a solid contribution in the first game before the clash was hit by the weather.

The youngster is hit-and-miss but will have plenty of belief after his latest knock.

Should Ireland lose early wickets against a strong South Africa bowling attack then Tector can step up once again.

His price of 7.0 with bet365 is far too big. It is either feast or famine for the 21-year-old but when it all comes together he is dangerous.

Malan Offers Value

Janneman Mallan was in excellent form in the white-ball games against Pakistan and carried that into the last fixture.

He hit a fine 84 at the top of the order and can chalk up more runs in this game.

His price of 3.5 with 1xBet looks to have value considering his recent performances and the form of some struggling teammates.

Aiden Markram is capable but has found consistency hard to come by. Favourite Quinton de Kock will be his biggest danger should he return to the starting line-up.

Dockrell for Player of the Match

Should Ireland pull off another upset then it is likely that George Dockrell will be in the action.

The all-rounder took a wicket in the last game after adding a vital and quick-fire 45.

It is a longshot bet but worth considering if Ireland can again push the Proteas all the way.

He is priced at 21.0 with bet365 to be named the game’s star performer.
