Read the player stats, pitch report, dream 11 predictions, and betting tips for Afghanistan vs Ireland's 1st T20I of the Three Match series in Afghanistan.

Afghanistan vs Ireland 1st T20I Match Preview: After winning the ODI series, Afghanistan will look to win against Ireland in the 1st T20I match that will be played on March 15, 2024.

Afghanistan is showing the world that if you have the intent to follow the right path and have the dedication for it, you can do better, which they did in the World Cup and in their last ODI series against Ireland after winning 2 out of 2 matches against them, and that is easy. They even gave new players chances in the 3rd T20I, which clearly shows that they are not afraid to test new players who have the potential to do great for the Afghanistan team.

Ireland is having a hard time in Afghanistan, and the team performance has recently gone down, which makes them a weak team in the upcoming T20I World Cup. If they want to have some chances in the upcoming World Cup, they need to start performing better, and the players need to give their all, as many senior players are not even coming in practice due to the pay scale that Ireland gives to their cricket players.

Team Preview Of Afghanistan

Afghanistan must be happy because their star bowler Rashid Khan has been back in the team since the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023. He had a back injury issue, but now he is fine to go and will feature in the first match against Ireland. Rashid Khan will lead the side, and Mujeeb ur Rahman also will make a comeback.

Important players for the Afghanistan Team in the match against Ireland

1- Rahmanullah Gurbaz is in good form. In his last nine matches, he has averaged 36.00 runs per match, which is a good average in T20Is. However, his strike rate is 136. He has a 26.23 average against Ireland in 8 matches in which he scored only one half-century.

2- Rashid Khan will be key for Afghanistan in the upcoming match but it is not going to be easy for him coming after a long injury. He took 37 wickets against the Ireland side in the T20I and can be handy with his batting skills.

3- Mohammad Nabi is the most experienced player for the Afghanistan side, who has taken 19 wickets and scored 424 runs with an average of 24.94 against Ireland. He was amazing in his last match, picking up 4 wickets and then also scoring 48 runs innings.

Team Preview of Ireland

Ireland will need to get into their winning groove if they want to compete well in the upcoming T20I World Cup because they have been losing many matches recently. Paul Stirling will once again lead his side, but he does not look like the right fit, both as a player and as a captain.

Important players for the Ireland Team in the match against the Afghanistan Team

1- Mark Adair has been on the team for a long time now and is one of the most experienced players for them, but he needs to step up and give a great performance

2- Josh Little is Ireland’s lead pace bowler and the only player from the team that plays in the biggest T20 league, IPL, for the Gujarat Titans, in which he performed well last year.

3- Harry Tector will be a key batter for the Ireland side, handling the middle order. In the last series, he scored a century against Afghanistan in the ODI.

Afghanistan vs Ireland Match Prediction

Afghanistan will be favorite to win the match.
