Ireland vs South Africa 1st ODI Betting Tips 11/07/2021

Teams Status


Recently, Ireland lost the three-match ODI series to the Netherlands played in June. In the CWC however, they lost seven out of the nine games that they have played. 

In the batting department, the side would be relying heavily on the experienced duo of Paul Stirling and Andrew Balbirnie to produce big scores in this fixture.

Besides Stirling and Balbirnie, the all-rounder duo of Curtis Campher, Simi Singh, and Harry Tector will need to produce crucial scores for the side to post modest scores on the board.

In the bowling department, the likes of Joshua Little, Craig Young, and George Dockrell will need to pick up wickets in this fixture.

South Africa

Earlier this year, South Africa lost the three-match ODI series to Pakistan. The visitors will be looking to collect maximum points from this series to climb the ladder in the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League.

On the other hand, South Africa have some exciting young prospect in the team such as Lizaad Williams, Bjorn Fortuin, Kyle Verreynne, George Linde and Janneman Malan. 

Captain Temba Bavuma, wicket-keeper Quinton de Kock, the middle-order trio of Aiden Markram, Rassie van der Dussen and David Miller will have the responsibility to deliver notable scores for the side for this contest.

In the bowling department, Anrich Nortje suffered an injury during the last T20I game against West Indies. The pacer might not be risked for this series opener so Lizaad Williams might make his ODI debut for South Africa. It will be interesting to see whether South Africa fields two spinners for this game as the conditions will not offer that much help for the slower bowlers.

What do the Sportsbook Say

Despite winning the T20I series in West Indies, South Africa will be the favorites to win the opening game of the T20I series to be played at Malahide Cricket Club in Dublin. Royal Panda has South Africa priced at 1.11 and Ireland at 6.25, Betway has South Africa priced at 1.10, and Ireland at 6.00. Dafabet has South Africa priced for 1.12 and Ireland priced at 7.00.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip1: Quinton de Kock in the top-notch form with the bat

Wicket-keeper played exceedingly well and was instrumental in helping South Africa win the Test and T20I series in the Caribbean. Left-hander has consistently produced big scores for the side across different formats. He will be looking to continue his excellent form against Ireland in the opening game of the series, so we expect Quinton de Kock to score 40 runs or [email protected].

Tip 2: Lungi Ngidi to lead the way with the ball for Proteas

The right-arm quick has been a bankable performer for Proteas in white-ball cricket. Recently, Lungi did pick a lot of wickets against the West Indies. He will be looking to work on his variations and execute them at the back end of the innings. So expect Lungi Ngidi to take two wickets or more in this series [email protected].


After analysis of both the squads, South Africa have a lot of experience in their batting and bowling department in comparison to Ireland, who rely on one or two players to deliver big performances. So, expect South Africa to register a comprehensive win in the series opener at Dublin.
