AFGH vs IRE Dream11 Prediction | Ireland vs Afghanistan Match Preview | Fantasy Team & Team News
Afghanistan will face Ireland next in their build-up to the ICC Cricket World Cup which is approaching fast. The Asian team had earlier played two One Day Internationals against Scotland to get accustomed to British conditions and warm up for the big upcoming event. Afghanistan will need to bring their best game to the ICC World Cup as many teams would think of them as a soft target.
However, they have the quality to upset a few of the big guns at the biggest stage in international cricket. That is what they must be aiming to prepare for and these matches against Scotland and Ireland should serve the purpose. Ireland are a budding team in the cricket arena, but on their home turf, they can be a resilient team to test the Asian team.
Nonetheless, Afghanistan will take confidence from the fact that Ireland have been abysmal recently and they have not won any of their last 4 matches.
