Dale Steyn set to play 100th ODI, with South Africa promising no let-up, no freebies. South Africa Proteas will face Ireland tomorrow  3 March 2015.

So set the alarm for the first ball at 5:30 AM (SA time) .


Each of the three previous meetings between Ireland and South Africa has resulted in a South African victory, though only the 2011 World Cup encounter was 50 overs a side. Both in Guyana (2007 World Cup) and in Belfast later that year, rain ensured that Messrs Duckworth and Lewis would come into play.

Said Behardien, who is expected to play on Tuesday with JP Duminy still not having recovered from a side strain, of the Irish: “They’ve played two and won two, and I don’t think we would have taken anybody lightly in this particular tournament.
