Afghanistan are scheduled to play Ireland in the 2nd of the 3 T20s this Wednesday, 22nd August 2018. The Match is to be played at Bready Cricket Club, Bready, Northern Ireland. The Match is scheduled for stat by 2000 PST, 2030 IST, 1600 Local. The Pitch to be played on is a perfectly fine one. Neither too extravagant for Bowlers,nor too miser for batsmen. Quality may prevail,substandard play may get you bashed. No demons in this one. Ironically, we may have our full quota of 40 overs on a rain fed day. Rain is forecasted pre and post match timing. It is gonna be cool with the breeze blowing. Overcast conditions may favour Fast Bowlers-quality ones though.
Afghanistan are a great side-a side that have shown much improvement over the last couple of years. They have quality bowlers and batsman who can get the job done on their day. Having played most of their Cricket in Pakistan,understandably their bowling often outshines their batting. Rashid is still a mystery and Aftab Alam and Fareed Ahmad have proven to be good finds.
It is not habitual of Mohammad Shahzad to be outshined given the fire he adds to the Squad. The last game was one of those extraordinarily rare cases. Hazratullah Zazai was superlative and took the game away from the opposition as soon as it begin. Afghanistan’s Middle order is a solid one but you can’t rely on it to win you T20 games. How well does an Afghan Batting Order fare depends on how well do the openers and M. Nabi play.
Despite their batting powers, Afghanistan are still a Spin dominant side. They rely excessively on Rashid to win them games. For Ireland to win this one, they do need to do what hasn’t been done before-counter Rashid. Can be interesting!!
Ireland and Afghanistan have played 11 T20Is till date. Afghanistan lead 8-3. More relevantly Afghanistan have defeated Ireland in each of the last 5 games the two have played. History does favour Afghanistan!!
Afghanistan: Mohammad Shahzad, Usman Ghani, Asghar Afghan, Samiullah Shenwari, Mohammad Nabi, Najibullah Zadran, Shafiqullah Shafiq, Rashid Khan, Mirwais Ashraf, Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Aftab Alam.
Ireland: Paul Stirling, James Shannon, William Porterfield, Andrew Balbirnie, Gary Wilson, Kevin O Brien, Simi Singh, Stuart Thompson, George Dockrell, Boyd Rankin and Peter Chase.
