County Ground, Bristol
The ground has long boundaries in comparison to most county cricket clubs.
The former concrete roof over the public terraces, which has now been demolished, was formed from eight hyperbolic-paraboloid umbrellas each approximately 30 square feet (2.8 m2)
Pitch & Condition
Bristol’s pitch is a bat-friendly wicket. The wicket averaged 173, and the first-inning average rose to 178. In the last two games played at this venue, the first team to bat has surpassed 200. Given the outcome of the last game played at the field, the captain who won the throw is expected to hit the wicket first.
South Africa won the draw and opted to bat first on Wednesday. Ireland will choose to line up first and we expect teams to bat in the same order in this game, regardless of who wins the draw.
Point Table Analysis
Ireland and South Africa have faced each other 3 times in the T20 International, with Ireland being beaten by South Africa each time. Ireland played their first T20 international with Scotland and since then they have played 122 T20 matches, winning 52 and losing 61. South Africa, on the other hand, played 147 T20 Internationals, won 85 T20Is and lost 60. The two teams are not numerically comparable, but it will be interesting to see the Irish players play against South Africa next August.
The South African Cricket Board has confirmed it will meet Ireland in August 2022 for a two-match T20I series on the Irish surface. The first game of the series will be played on 3 August 2022 and the final game of the series will be played in Bristol on 5 August 2022. Ireland will play all 2 of their T20 internationals under Andrew Balbirnie, while Heinrich Malan will lead them as manager. South Africa, on the other hand, will take on Ireland under the captaincy of Temba Bavuma, with Mark Boucher as their manager. Ireland are currently 15th in the ICC T20 team standings, while South Africa is 5th. Ireland’s upcoming winning streak against South Africa and India will be beneficial as they can use it to prepare for the 2022 T20 World Cup in Australia later this year.

Dream 11 Prediction
Quinton De Kock
The first T20I game of the series will be played on August 3, 2022, while the second T20I game will be played on August 5, 2022.
South Africa are definitely the favorites but Ireland have shown clear signs of improvement in recent years and could give Protea a good fight.
In the last 3 T20I matches between Ireland and South Africa, South Africa has won all of them.
They have lost their last 5 T20I matches in Ireland. South Africa, on the other hand, have lost 3 of their last 5 matches in T20I cricket.
