AFGH vs IRE Match Prediction Tips | Who Will Win Today Match

Civil Service Cricket Club, Belfast, August 27 at 03:15 PM IST

After a humiliating loss in the three T20I series against the visitors Afghanistan, the Irishmen will now challenge the visitors in the 50 over format 3 match series starting from August 27 at the Civil Service Cricket Club in Belfast.

With a change of venue, Ireland would hope for a change in fortunes as well after their dismal show in the recently concluded T20I series where they were tamed 2-0 with the last match being called off due to excessive rain. Talking about the team compositions, there have been few changes on either side with the 50 overs specialists making it to the set-up.

Gary Wilson who was the skipper for T20Is will hand over the duties to William Porterfield who is still the skipper in 50 overs format. Veteran wicket-keeper batsman Niall O’Brien will be back as well which will definitely boost their chances of run scoring.
