Today's Cricket Match Prediction
Strength: The most significant advantage of the Irish side is their top three. The top three of Andrew Balbrine, Kevin O'Brien, and Paul Stirling, if in form, can defeat any team, and their unparalleled hitting can make any bowling line up go weak in their knees. In contrast, the strength of the Afghanistan side can be defined as more of a two dimensional. The team has a solid bowling line up led by Rashid Khan and Mujeeb Ur Rehman, whereas Mohammad Nabi completes the spin trio. Nabi also provides solidity in batting and supports the likes of Ashgar Afghan in proving the much-required solidity in the middle of the innings.
Weaknesses: The Irish team has a few good bowlers, such as Simi Singh, Boyd Rankin, and Dockrell. However, the bowling still does not incite the confidence that it should, and this is where the team is lacking. The instability of the middle-order in another weakness. The Afghan team, on the other hand, does not have many gaps, and apart from the middle order and pace bowling, the team looks pretty balanced.

BAN vs ZIM Dream 11
The fantasy cricket options for your Dream11 team will be fascinating ones for this match. Both the sides are heavy on top-order batting options and bowling all-rounders. The Irish opener Paul Stirling is one of the most explosive batsmen in the current set of T20 players and should be selected into the side. However, the same is the scenario with Hazratullah Zazai, who is in the same mold as Stirling. Both these should make strong contenders for your Dream11 team.
