Afghanistan tour of Ireland, 2018
Afghanistan vs Ireland, 1st T20
Afghanistan will kick-start their tour of the Irish isles when they take on Ireland in the first T20 on Monday.
Venue:- Bready Cricket Club, Bready, Northern Ireland
Match Timing:- Monday, August 20th, 2018, 08:30 PM IST
Both the teams have been involved in some memorable tussles over the years and the current series promises to be yet another chapter in their fastly growing rivalry. Afghanistan defeated Ireland in a winner-takes-all-Super Sixes match back in March to stake their claim into the 50-over World Cup. Since then, the sides have made their respective Test debuts and are also set to meet each other in the First Class arena in February next year.
Ireland would like to shrug off the drubbing they’d received against India (0-2) back in July while Afganistan will look to carry the winning momentum, achieved by a 3-0 drubbing of Bangladesh.
