Afghanistan vs Ireland Playerzpot Prediction 1st ODI

An irrepressible Rashid Khan show in the third T20I helped Afghanistan white-wash Ireland in the T20I series, and now the two sides lock horns in a 5-match ODI series. The talismanic leg spinner claimed a hat-trick, returning with bowling figures of 5/27, to restrict Ireland to 178 for eight in their chase of 211 in Dehradun in the last meeting between the two sides.

Ireland has lost the T20I series, although they would want to pounce on an opportunity that awaits them in the 50-over format. Ireland are out of contention for the 2019 World Cup and this series might serve them as the perfect platform where they can exhibit what they are capable of. Afghanistan, on the other hand, would be cloud nine after a stellar show in Twenty 20 Inetrnationals.

Fantasy Picks from Afghanistan

  • Rashid Khan has shown his impressive performance in the T20I series with the most recent five-wicket haul in the third T20I.
  • Mohammad Nabi was at his sublime best in the last T20I where he hit 81 runs off 36 runs. He could be picked in your fantasy team as well.
  • The recently concluded T20I series was all-about power-hitting and record-shattering. Hazaratullah Zazai delivered a few quick cameos along with an explosive 162 off 62 balls.

Fantasy Picks from Ireland

  • Kevin O Brien has compiled 116 runs at a strike rate of 141.46 in the T20I series and he would aim to continue his good form in the ODI series as well.
  • Boyd Rankin claimed 3 wickets in the last T20I and he will be looking forward to taking his form forward in the limited overs format.
