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

Civil Service Cricket Club, Belfast, August 31 at 03:15 PM IST

It’s the series decider! Ireland put together an all-round performance in the second ODI to level the three-match series 1-1 and set up the final clash.

The series started with the visitors piping Ireland in the first ODI in a low-scoring affair. Ireland fell short of the stipulated target by 29 runs chasing 227 runs total set by Afghanistan. The hosts stepped up to register a nervy 3-wicket win in the second game and would hope to carry the momentum into the all-important third ODI on Friday. On the other hand, Afghanistan will draw inspiration from the fact that they have troubled the home side in every challenge so far on the tour.

Pitch and weather: It will be a cloudy day which will bring bowlers some luck. This could well be an exciting contest between the bat and ball.

Last ODI result at the venue:  Afghanistan 182/9 lost to Ireland 183/7 – August 29, 2nd ODI Afghanistan tour of Ireland, 2018
