Sune Luus' South Africa Women have arrived in Ireland for a white-ball series consisting of three T20Is and as many ODI matches. The tour is set to kick start from Friday, June 3 at the Pembroke Cricket Club, Sandymount, Dublin. The match is scheduled to commence from 9 PM IST. The second and the third T20I will be played on June 6 and June 8 respectively before the ODIs kick off from June 11.
Gaby Lewis-led Ireland has played a total of 10 T20I matches against South Africa Women. South African Women had last toured Ireland for a 2-match T20I series in August 2016. The teams had settled for a 1-1 draw after Ireland won the second match. Interestingly, that was the last time the two teams faced each other in the shortest format of the game.
As we gear up for the first T20I, I have brought you the best three betting tips from the IRE-W vs SA-W head-to-head encounter.
Mentioned below is the top team bet from the IRE-W vs SA-W head-to-head contest.
It's simply a no-brainer that South Africa Women will walk into the match as favourites. Sune Luus' team has defeated Ireland Women nine out of ten times in the past. Ireland won their last encounter against the African nation but that was almost seven years ago, and repeating the feat will not at all be easy.
Ireland Women have won their last two matches but again, the win came in August 2021 and against weaker oppositions like Netherlands and France. Also, Ireland have lost 20 out of their 30 T20I matches at home.
South Africa have got the overall experience in all the departments of the game and the T20I rankings for women speaks out for that. While South Africa Women are placed fifth, Ireland are occupying the 12th spot.
The aforementioned details make it clear that South Africa are set to hammer Ireland in the first T20I.If you feel the same, head over to Pari Match to grab the best odds of 1.13 and place your bet on South Africa Women from the IRE-W vs SA-W head-to-head encounter.
Laura Wolvaardt and Gaby Lewis are my top two player betting tips for theIRE-W vs SA-W 1st T20I. Have a look at it for reaping the best returns.
South Africa's 23-year-old opener Laura Wolvaardt has played 33 T20I matches till date and scored 588 runs at an average of 26.72.

She featured for Velocity in Women's T20 Challenge 2022 and finished at tournament's highest run-scorer with 133 runs in three matches at an average of 133.00.

When it comes to international T20I outings, Wolvaardt has scores of 3, 33*, 35*, 0 and 53*. Interestingly, Laura Wolvaardt made her T20I debut against Ireland Women in 2016. She scored 24 and 3 runs in the two matches back then, but a mature batter now, she looks set to score high against Ireland Women in the 1st T20I.

Gaby Lewis will be seen leading the Ireland squad at the age of 21 in the first match against South Africa A on Friday and she richly deserves this opportunity. She has already played 22 ODIs and 48 T20Is for Ireland, scoring 505 and 995 runs at averages of 26.57 and 24.26 respectively. She warmed up for the series by playing T20 matches for Sapphires Women in FairBreak Invitational Tournament 2022. The Dublin-born scored 22, 62*, 18 and 11 runs there.
