For South Africa, skipper AB de Villiers has already found his touch. After two disappointing knocks against Zimbabwe and India, he displayed full flourish against West Indies in South Africa’s previous match. Faf du Plessis has struck two back-to-back half centuries and Rilee Rossouw gave a good account of himself against the Caribbean side.

However, the absence of JP Duminy and Vernon Philander duo to injury spoils the balance of the side, with both bat and ball.

Ireland, on the other hand, is gelling well as a unit and has already registered two wins in as many matches. Alongwith New Zealand and India, the respective toppers of Group A and Group B, are the only unbeaten side in the competition. However, South Africa will offer them the first big test of this year’s world cup. It will be interesting to see if William Porterfield’s men can stand up to the challenge.
