South Africa Women begin their white-ball tour of Ireland from Friday, June 3. The two teams will play three T20Is at Pembroke Cricket Club in Dublin followed by as many ODIs at Castle Avenue.
The three 50-overs matches will be a part of the ICC Women's Championship.
The series couldn’t have come at a worse time for the home team since eight of Ireland’s senior players are unavailable due to injury. This means the board has included as many as five uncapped players to face the mighty South Africa.
And since their regular captain, Laura Delany, is out injured, Gaby Lewis will lead the team in both formats.
As for South Africa, they have a few issues of their own, with Marizanne Kapp and Sinalo Jafta recovering from illness. Meanwhile, the likes of Masabata Klaas and regular captain Dane van Niekerk are unavailable due to injuries. In van Niekerk’s absence, Sune Luus has been given the reins.
