“David Weiss played for South Africa in the T20 World Cup before, and I have seen him in South Africa and the County Tour,” said Irish coach Graham Ford. “He is absolutely devastating, he is like that.”
Ford added: “They have some dangerous players. They have some very hard-working cricketers, and many of them have also learned a lot of cricket in South Africa. We know they will be tough. If we deviate a little from our best form , We will struggle.”
“We are very excited. They are the games you want to participate in when you grow up watching cricket and elimination games. They are the people we want to be a part of, so we will take a good rest and prepare.”#BackingGreen pic.twitter.com/2ce5B3t214
