Ireland vs South Africa, 1st T20I Match Preview:

Ireland's batting was on point in the ODI series, and they will be hoping to continue with that rhythm in the T20Is as well. Andy Balbirnie will be crucial at the top. Watch out for Simi Singh, who contributes with both bat as well as the ball. 


South African batting will depend on how well Quinton de Kock plays. Janneman Malan is in good form as well. Tabraiz Shamsi had an excellent series against West Indies. He will be looking to continue his good run of form here as well.
