South Africa take on Ireland for a three-match T20I series before playing against England in a three-match test series. South Africa won the T20I series 2-1 and now are looking to win another T20I series against Ireland. The first T20I will be played in Bristol. The match starts at 12 pm local time (4.30 PM IST).

South Africa are in great form and in a great winning run. Ireland, on the other hand, are on a losing streak despite playing some good and competitive cricket. They lost an ODI and T20I series heading into the series against the Proteas.
