Parnell grabs five-for as near-perfect Proteas put Ireland to the sword and seal T20 series  

Sibusiso Mjikeliso

Wayne Parnell grabbed five wickets as the Proteas put together a near-perfect performance to beat Ireland by 44 runs in Bristol on Friday night.

Parnell’s 5/30 from his four overs ensured that the Proteas suffered no embarrassment in Ireland and continued their hot streak since arriving in the UK.

The South Africans sealed a 2-0 T20 series over Ireland on the back of a 2-1 series victory over England last week.

The Proteas were originally sent into the bat by Ireland and made the most of their time, with Reeza Hendricks picking up from where he left off in the first T20.

His opening partner, Quinton de Kock (7 from 10 balls), however, struggled somewhat and departed early but Hendricks soldiered on, putting in some luscious strokes for his 42 (40).

After Rassie van der Dussen also went cheaply, Aiden Markram joined Hendricks and put a brilliant partnership together.

But it was David Miller and Heinrich Klaasen who effectively took the target out of Ireland grasp with their 32 not-out and 39, respectively, to take SA towards 182/6.

When the bowlers came on, South Africa bowled with confidence and always held the upper hand thanks to Parnell’s consistent strikes, which broke whatever momentum Ireland had.

While Paul Stirling (28) and Barry McCarthy had flurries, they weren’t enough to derail the visitors from their mission. Ireland were eventually bowled out for 138 with eight balls remaining.

18.5 - Comment! South Africa won by 44 runs
18.5 - Comment! Man of the Match - Wayne Parnell (South Africa):- Overs:4 - Runs:30 - Wkts:5 - Econ:7.50
18.5 - Comment! Wayne Parnell: I think, I kept the things simple. It was about doing the basics right. I am happy to be doing the job for the team. I have done it through the normal process. Believe in the process and it will give you good heights. I kept believing in myself. It was a special moment to become the fastest ever South African to take the 50 T20I wickets. Here, each and every success of the individual is being celebrated by the whole team, It gives you confidence and keeps the environment well.
18.5 - Comment! Andy Balbirnie, Ireland Captain: Yeah, it was not as close as the scorecard suggests. If it was not for Barry McCarthy's cameo it would have been even worse. We have lost a few early wickets starting with myself, then Stirling and so on. We had kept things tighter till the halfway mark. Our spinners were doing well. But their finishers were too good as they took the attack back onto us. Being behind the eight-ball against a team like South Africa, it is difficult to win. We had a great summer playing against India, New Zealand and now South Africa. Now Afghanistan will come. They are a team that can be dangerous on any given day.
18.5 - Comment! David Miller, South Africa skipper: I am fit. I had a back spasm. Had to nurture it and was fit to go today. It is always a good problem to have going into the World Cup. Guys have stood up and have contributed whenever they can. It's really nice to contribute as a captain. I have seen different sorts of areas of the game as a captain with the bowlers we have. I enjoyed the challenge. The way we have played in the last 18 months has been phenomenal.
18.5 - Comment! That is it for this match we hope you guys like our live feed stay tuned for more live action.
