Ireland and South Africa will face off in the second and final T20I of the two-game series. South Africa, led by Keshav Maharaj, leads the series 1-0 after sealing the opening game by 21 runs and defending 211 runs.
It was another instance of Ireland doing well this summer but falling short after leading India and New Zealand extremely narrowly earlier this season. After 212 runs, only two batsmen, Lorcan Tucker (78) and George Dockrell (43), crossed the 20-run mark. A lack of support from other batters meant Ireland hit just 190 runs in their 20 overs, which was still a tall order.
South Africa, meanwhile, continued their good run on the UK tour and this time it was Reeza Hendricks (74) and a fast 56 from Aiden Markram that propelled them to an impressive total of 211 runs in their 20-over.
With the ball, Tabraiz Shamsi continued his good work while Keshav Maharaj ended his economic spell conceding just 29 runs (2 wickets) in his four overs.
The Proteas would love to end their UK tour on a high, while this is one last chance for Ireland to ensure they book a win on the board this summer.

Ireland vs South Africa Probable XIs
The side managed by Andrew Balbirnie are unlikely to make any changes despite losing the first game. That Joshua Little conceded 55 carries under his spell is worrying, but the pacesetter has been one of the better bowlers for Ireland this season.
Probably XI: Paul Stirling, Andrew Balbirnie (C), Lorcan Tucker (WK), Harry Tector, Gareth Delany, Curtis Campher, George Dockrell, Mark Adair, Andy McBrine, Barry McCarthy, Joshua Little.
South Africa could try to rest a few players and we could see Gerald Coetzee get a game in place of Lungi Ngidi who has played almost every game on this tour.
Probably XI: Quinton de Kock (WK), Reeza Hendricks, Rassie van der Dussen, Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen, Tristan Stubbs, Dwaine Pretorius, Wayne Parnell, Keshav Maharaj (C), Lungi Ngidi/Gerald Coetzee, Tabraiz Shamsi.
