By Akshay Singh

AFGH vs IRE Dream 11 Prediction | Afghanistan vs Ireland 1st ODI  Preview | Who Will Win

Afghanistan and Ireland will square-off against each other in all three formats starting with 3 T20Is followed by 5 ODIs and a solitary Test match. India has been the adopted home for Afghanistan for quite some time now which means all the matches will be played at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Dehradun, Uttrakhand.

This would be the fourteenth T20I between these two sides, the first battle between the two teams took place way back in the year 2010 at the P Sara Oval in Colombo where the Irish side had the last laugh after a victory by 5 wickets.

Ireland has struggled against Afghanistan in T20Is

Ireland despite winning the first encounter between the two sides has really struggled against Afghanistan. They have lost 7 straight games to Afghanistan and they will look to end this 2-year drought soon. Ireland’s last win over Afghanistan came in the year 2013 at Abu Dhabi where the margin of win was 68 runs.

Ireland will hope to resurge their run against Afghanistan in T20Is and induce a new life to themselves to make this series an interesting affair.
