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

Bready Cricket Club, Bready, Northern Ireland, August 20 at 08:30 PM IST

The Irish will be welcoming Afghanistan for a proposed 3 T20I’s and 3 ODI series commencing from August 20 at the Bready Cricket Club in Northern Ireland. The series will start with the shortest format, i.e, the T20I’s which has been one of the strongest points of the visitors in recent times.

With the likes of blistering stroke makers Mohammad Shahzad, Samiullah Shenwari and Mohammad Nabi, the visitors provide a robust batting line-up which is equally followed up by some classy bowling in the form of Mujeeb ur Rahman, Rashid Khan and Najibullah Zadran.

Talking about the Irish side, this would be the second series for Gary Wilson as captain and he will try to take his team to glory after going down against India in their previous T20 series at home. They do have some match winners in their ranks who are capable of turning the match single-handedly with the likes of the Kevin O’Brien, Simi Singh, Andrew Balbirnie etc.

With the two sides looking even on papers, the contest between bat and ball would be a worth watch and both teams will give their best to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.
