Ireland Women vs South Africa Women Team Previews

Ireland Women (Match Odds – 5.10)

Team Ireland Women rarely get the opportunity to play a full series against other strong cricketing nations, so this series against South Africa Women is significant. Realistically, we believe Ireland will be satisfied if it competes with South Africa and pushes it in a few of the matches. Winning would be ideal, but even the Irish women would be surprised if it did not occur.

Gaby Lewis and Shauna Kavanagh will bat first, with Jane Maguire another batter to keep an eye on. There appears to be a lack of batting depth on the team, and this is a lineup that is prone to collapse.

Rachel Delany is Ireland’s leading bowler. Sophie McMahon and Georgina Dempsey will assist her in her efforts to keep the South African batting under control.

Ireland Women Squad

Gaby Lewis (c), Alana Dalzell, Shauna Kavanagh, Mary Waldron (wk), Leah Paul, Celeste Raack, Sophie MacMahon, Rachel Delaney, Cara Murray, Georgina Dempsey, Jane Maguire, Sarah Forbes, Arlene Kelly, Kate McEvoy

Predicted XI: Gaby Lewis (c), Mary Waldron (wk), Celeste Raack, Cara Murray, Rachel Delany, Georgina Dempsey, Jane Maguire, Arlene Kelly, Leah Paul, Shauna Kavanagh, Alana Dalzell

South Africa Women (Match Odds – 1.16)

South Africa Women will enter this series determined to win every single match. They have risen to the ranks of the world’s best cricketing nations and will be looking to win a title soon. Ireland should avoid causing too much trouble.

Laura Wolvaardt leads a batting order that is changing. The squad includes players like Andrie Steyn, Anne Bosch, and Delmi Tucker. As South Africa looks to the future, one or two of them may play in this first match.

Sune Luus, Nadine de Klerk, and Tazmin Brits are also expected to play, bringing a wealth of experience to the table.

The bowling of the South African Women’s team is its true strength. Shabnim Ismail is widely regarded as the fastest bowler in women’s cricket. The attack will be led by her, Ayabonga Khaka, and Tumi Sekhukune. There are some new faces in the bowling unit who could make the starting eleven.

South Africa also has the benefit of a number of all-rounders who can contribute with the ball.

Pitch and Weather Conditions

Pembroke Cricket Club’s pitch is ideal for batting. As the ball comes nicely onto the bat, batters can hit through the line right from the start of their innings. When bowling on this surface, bowlers must be disciplined with their lines and lengths.

The weather will not be ideal for a game of cricket. Dublin’s temperature is expected to range between 11 and 14 degrees Celsius, with rain falling throughout the day.

Ireland Women vs South Africa Women Match Prediction

We’ll bet on South Africa Women to win this match. When it comes to batting strength, bowling quality, and international experience, there is no doubt that South Africa has the upper hand over Ireland. The only risk is that South Africa will play its youngsters rather than its strongest eleven. This is why, after the toss, keep an eye on the final playing eleven.

Even if that happens, we believe South Africa will come out on top.

South Africa Women is the favourite to beat Ireland Women at the odds of 1.16.

  • Team South Africa has won four of the previous five meetings between the two countries.
  • Ireland’s batting is thin and shallow.
  • South Africa’s bowling attack far outperforms Ireland’s.
