Alright... This information is for the fans who aren't following South African Cricket in the recent past. They have registered a consecutive away series win and are growing in confidence in every match. No one gave them the chance after they lost the home series against Pakistan but after that, Temba Bavuma's men have defeated the powerhouse West Indies team on their home turf and now, they pinned the Irish outfit down due to some impressive bowling display. One more match to go in this series on Saturday and we have to see whether there will be a response from the Ireland batsmen, who have been so insipid in both matches. We will find out that in a couple of days' time, but for now, this is Pragadeesh waving goodnight on behalf of my fellow colleague Lavil Saldhana. Cheers
Temba Bavuma: Looking at the way we started a lot of people would have written us off, but then came a fighting performance with the bat especially Dave got us to a respectable total, and we always believed in our bowling attack and the pitch had something in it. Miller was really good. He along with Mulder solidified the middle order for us
David Miller: Thank you very much. It's nice to contribute and it's a great win. A couple of wickets up front didn't help. Mulder came in and batted beautifully and it's good to see contributions like that. The spinners have been phenomenal. We are very fortunate with the line-up, very impressed with Shamsi, Fortuin and George. We can't play all of them but they are bowling phenomenally well. T20 World cup is the goal at the end of the day but we wanted to go game-by-game

David Miller is the Player Of The Match
Balbirine: Yeah disappointed with the bat. again. Thought we bowled really well and fielded well which we didn't do in the last game. The spinners bowled well and a couple of wickets on the top was a bonus thing, but it was a batting thing that we have to address and hopefully we will do it on Saturday. 
What a win for South Africa. After posting a competitive total on the board, it was a thoroughly dominating performance from them with the ball as they outclassed Ireland and registered a stunning series win. Ireland needed one big partnership to lay the foundation in this chase, but they kept losing wickets in clusters. 

They lost Kevin 'O' Brien again for a duck and there was no handy contributions coming from Balbirine as he threw his wicket cheaply. Stirling and Dockrell had the start but failed to convert them into a big score. Once again for the Proteas, Shamsi rose to the occasion and got three wickets for just thirteen runs in his spell. The only positive for Ireland in the batting department is Shane Getake, as he launched a couple of big sixes, but he didn't get any support from the other end. The South African bowlers used the conditions effectively to their advantage and plagued the Ireland batsmen with the slow back of the length deliveries. 
19.3 Lungi Ngidi to Joshua Little, BOWLED HIM! GAME, SET, AND MATCH FOR SOUTH AFRICA! Slower yorker on the line of the off stump, Little looked to guide that one away to the third man for a boundary on that occasion. Little crams his bat down but fails to stop the bails from dislodging. South Africa win the match by 42 runs and now take an unassailable lead of 2-0 in the series
19.2 Lungi Ngidi to Mark Adair, length delivery outside the off stump, Adair gets on his backfoot and plays that one away to the deep backward square leg for a single 
19.1 Lungi Ngidi to Joshua Little, length delivery outside the off stump, Little pulls that one down the ground but doesn't get enough on that occasion to mid on for a single 
The 10th wicket partnership continues for Ireland. They are reluctant to lose the wicket
