In the 20th game of the ICC Under-19 World Cup 2022, South Africa will take on Ireland at the Brian Lara Stadium in Tarouba, Trinidad, on Friday.
South Africa were completely outplayed by India in their tournament opener. However, they came back strongly, beating Uganda comprehensively. Dewald Brevis scored 104 at a strike rate of 94.55. He was awarded the Man of the Match in that game, and will be one to watch out for.
Meanwhile, Ireland are coming off a heavy 174-run loss to India. They would look to recover from that and make a mark against South Africa. Ireland and South Africa are respectively ranked second and third in the points table.
