Match 21 of the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup is already coming up, and it’s going to pit South Africa against Ireland in a big match-up. Ireland has already pulled off a major upset in the World Cup, and South Africa is always known for their strength. There will be a number of ways to watch streaming live online.
Both teams have two victories already, but South Africa does have one loss on their record in pool play. Ireland is still undefeated.
South Africa’s first match was a 62-run victory over Zimbabwe in Match 3 of the World Cup. Next, they ended up being demolished by the India team by 130 runs. They rebounded nicely though and destroyed West Indies by 257 runs.
Ireland’s first victory was the major upset in which they defeated West Indies by four wickets. Well, it was an upset to everyone but the Irish squad. In their second match, they took down United Arab Emirates by two wickets.
RTE believes that it is possible for Ireland to keep playing as well as they have been and overturn South Africa. Former England international Graeme Swann thinks that Ireland is in an “enviable position” and can take the South Africans, but they have to stay focused.
“Ireland are in a very enviable position. I’m sure a lot of teams would like to be where they are,” Swann told RTÉ Sport’s John Kenny in Brisbane.
“If I were Ireland, I wouldn’t be targeting the Zimbabwe game. I’d be targeting South Africa.
“South Africa have just come off a very heavy defeat to India… Ireland have shown they can chase 280 or 300.
“If South Africa don’t put on a good batting display, if AB De Villiers isn’t in the sort of knick that he has been before, and they only manage 250 or 260, Ireland should say that ‘If we win this game we’re in the quarter-finals’.”
If Ireland is able to win and move to 3-0, they’ll be right there with India at the top of Pool B, with both South Africa and West Indies having two losses apiece.
The match between South Africa vs. Ireland is scheduled to begin at 14:30 local time (03:30 GMT) on Tuesday, March 3, at the Manuka Oval in Canberra, Australia.
