Dehradun, March 15 at 10:00 AM IST
After a tantalizing ODI series, Ireland will wrap-up this series with a solitary Test match which will be played at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Dehradun where all the matches of this series took place.
It was a clinical performance from Afghanistan in the T20I series which saw them clean sweeping their opponents 3-0. The T20I series was followed by a 5 match ODI series where there was nothing to separate the two sides as the series ended 2 apiece with one game being washed out due to rain pouring down.
Both these teams are relatively new in the Test scenario. This would be the second appearance for both teams in whites. Afghanistan’ played their first ever Test match against Ajinkya Rahane’s led, Indian team humiliating the newcomers by an innings and 262 runs.
Ireland’s maiden Test appearance came against Pakistan which saw them putting up a great fight against the then no 1 Test side in the world. Ireland displayed some great determination after being put into bat in the second innings via follow-on and went on to score 339 to give Pakistan a target of 160, which they eventually chased with 5 wickets in hand.
So, who will prove better in their second Test appearance, Afghanistan or Ireland? We will get to know tomorrow.
