Ireland’s Cricket World Cup adventure continues today with a match against South Africa who, wobbles aside, have only lost to Australia in the competition so far.

Update South Africa win the toss and will bowl first Another rain delay And they’re back, game reduced to 46 overs Back after more rain. Match is reduced to 35 overs a side. Messrs Duckworth and Lewis will be required Total Ireland 152-8 from 35 overs. Dissappointing late wickets lost. Apparently D-L target of 153 160.. Now South Africa 165-3 from 31.4 overs Final result, a win for South Africa. But Ireland pushed them close in the conditions, just not close enough.. but it was against the current No 1 ranked one-day side.
