Ireland will be hosting South Africa for the first time in a bilateral series, where they will play 3 ODIs and 3 T20Is.
Meanwhile, the 3-match ODI series will get underway from 11th July. It is going to be a very important series for Ireland from the 2023 World Cup qualification point of view. With the likes of Paul Stirling and Josh Little, Ireland has shown some promising performances recently.
West Indies, on the other hand, has been very impressive in the recent series against South Africa. They won their last Test and T20I series against the powerhouse West Indies and has travelled directly from West Indies to Ireland.
