ICC Cricket World Cup Game 24 South Africa vs Ireland


South Africa vs Ireland are going to play there match tomorrow at Canberra. Proteins are favorite in this match, South Africa has won 32 and lost just 16 of the 50 World Cup matches it has played since 1992. The team may have had its problems in the knockout games, but it’s not one to take eyes off the ball. So, if you’re a non-Test playing nation, South Africa is one of the teams you least want to bump into. This isn’t a great time to play de Villiers’s side either. Defeat to India in Melbourne was a rude wake-up call, and the West Indies bore the full brunt of the backlash in Sydney. On Monday (March 2), the eve of the game against Ireland, Farhaan Behardien, the South African allrounder, spoke of how it would be “foolish not to have a look at the other pool”. The implication was clear, that South Africa would prefer to finish in the top two and avoid a quarterfinal against Australia in Adelaide or against New Zealand in Wellington.
Each of the three previous meetings between Ireland and South Africa has resulted in a South African victory, though only the 2011 World Cup encounter was 50 overs a side. Both in Guyana (2007 World Cup) and in Belfast later that year, rain ensured that Messrs Duckworth and Lewis would come into play.
Said Behardien, who is expected to play on Tuesday with JP Duminy still not having recovered from a side strain, of the Irish: “They’ve played two and won two, and I don’t think we would have taken anybody lightly in this particular tournament. Every game is a big game, so we’ve prepared really well. We’ve done some good analysis on them, and we’ll be giving it our all tomorrow.”  images (20)
