Kevin O’Brien, who has now retired from ODIs, will be looking to overturn a period of poor form in T20Is
Ireland choose to bowl vs South Africa
Their line-up includes all four openers that have toured with their squad. Captain Temba Bavuma will open the batting with Quinton de Kock, with Janneman Malan being given an opportunity at No.3 following his form in the ODIs, and Aiden Markram at No.4. That leaves Rassie van der Dussen and David Miller to make up the middle-order.
Ireland: (possible) 1 Paul Stirling, 2 Andy Balbirnie (capt), 3 Kevin O’Brien, 4 Harry Tector, 5 George Dockrell, 6 Lorcan Tucker (wk), 7 Shane Getkate, 8 Simi Singh, 9 Barry McCarthy, 10 Josh Little, 11 Craig Young
South Africa (possible): 1 Quinton de Kock (wk), 2 Temba Bavuma (capt), 3 Janneman Malan, 4 Aiden Markram, 5 Rassie van der Dussen, 6 David Miller, 7 George Linde, 8 Kagiso Rabada, 9 Lizaad Williams, 10 Lung Ngidi 11 Tabraiz Shamsi
