Match Ended   
117 (19.3/20)
159/7 (20.0/20)
South Africa beat Ireland by 42 runs
Right then, that's a wrap to this one-sided game! South Africa have taken an unsurpassable lead in the 3-match series and would be aiming for a clean sweep now. Can Ireland stop them from achieving it? The third T20I is on Saturday, 24th July 2021 and the first ball will be at 4 pm local (3 pm GMT). But you can join us in advance for the build-up. Cheers!
Temba Bavuma, the captain of South Africa, says that the way they started a lot of people would have written them off. Praises David Miller for his knock and taking them to a respectable total. Adds that the pitch had something in it for the bowlers and they have the bowlers to defend any total. Tells that they knew something brilliant was coming from Miller and it's good for their middle order. Regarding the three players who came in the XI for this match and performed, Temba replies that all of them have been waiting for the opportunity and they are raring to go. States that there is massive potential in a lot of guys in their squad.
THE PLAYER OF THE MATCH IS DAVID MILLER! Says that it was nice to contribute and it's a great win for the boys. Tells that wickets falling up front never helps. Adds that Wiaan Mulder batted brilliantly and showed his usefulness with the bat. Feels it was a good rebuild and then a great finish. Mentions that the bowling has been phenomenal and adds that the guys are coming through beautifully. Tells that they are building nicely and going game by game and the T20 World Cup is in a few months, so really exciting times ahead.
Andy Balbirnie, the captain of Ireland, is visibly disappointed. Says that he is disappointed with the batting but they bowled and fielded really well. Feels that they didn't apply themselves with the bat. Adds that Simi Singh was brilliant and it's a batting thing that they need to address and bounce back on Saturday. Wants to put up a few good performances before the T20 World Cup.
Stay tuned for the presentation...
Earlier in the match, Ireland turned on the heat with the ball and pegged South Africa back very early in the match. At 58/5, they had the touring team on the mat but failed to land the knockout punch as David Miller was dropped on the score of 19. That moment proved to be costly as Miller went hammer and tongs in the death overs and powered South Africa to 159/7. Eventually, his efforts proved to be the decisive factor as South Africa crossed the line quite comfortably.
South Africa's bowling was once again brilliant as they mostly maintained accurate lines and bowled according to the field. Temba Bavuma employed three spinners and they did wonders for him. As always, Tabraiz Shamsi was too hot to handle for Ireland as he picked up three wickets while Bjorn Fortuin and Aiden Markram combined for four wickets. There were some early mishaps in the field as they dropped a couple of catches but the tourists quickly pulled up their socks and then took some really great catches. Overall, a good result for them after a nervous start to this match.
Yet another abysmal batting show by Ireland. After the high of the ODIs, their batting has surrendered in consecutive games now. It was a challenging target put on the board by South Africa but once again the hosts faltered at the start. Kevin O'Brien's mediocre form with the bat continued while Paul Stirling didn't pick his battle smartly and fell to Tabraiz Shamsi. After his departure, the chase never got going for the Irishmen.

Tabraiz Shamsi To George Dockrell OUT!
OUT! Aiden Markam takes a superb catch! Two catches were put down earlier, one by Fortuin and another by Markram and both the fielders have redeemed themselves now. Very poor shot selection from George Dockrell. There was no need to attack Shamsi with 4 wickets already down. But Dockrell wants to dominate him and for that he takes a big stride towards forward. Makes a decent connection but it's not decent enough to beat the jumping effort of Markram near the long on fence. Ireland have lost half their side and this chase is also going the same way, like the first T20I.

He closes the face of his bat early and that generates a leading edge. It loops in the air and Bjorn Fortuin runs in from extra cover to complete the catch with a dive. He dropped a sitter earlier and this one will make him feel a lot better.

Bjorn Fortuin To Kevin O'Brien OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT AND BOWLED! Soft dismissal really. The ball is tossed up around middle and leg and Kevin O'Brien just moves aside looking to push it on the off side but instead lofts it back to the bowler without any force. Bjorn Fortuin takes a simple catch and gives South Africa the start they were looking for.
