AFGH vs IRE Dream 11 Prediction | Afghanistan vs Ireland 2nd ODI Preview | Who Will Win

Thumping the Irish side mercilessly in the T20 Internationals, Afghanistan took the upper hand in the first ODI by clinching a 5 wickets victory over them.

This was Ireland’s 4th straight defeat across formats in this series as they were pummeled thrice in the T20Is and then here in the first one-dayer.

Afghanistan bowlers had a day to remember

If spin was the way to go in the T20Is, the fast-bowlers made their presence felt in the first ODI with Gulbadin Naib and Dawlat Zadran scalping 5 wickets between them. The spin trio of Mohammad Nabi, Mujeeb-ur-Rahman and Rashid Khan were as good as the seamers as the other 5 wickets were scalped between the three.

Mujeeb was exceptional with the ball as he gave away only 14 runs from his quota of 10 overs and got 3 wickets to his name. A chase of 165 runs was never going to be an uphill task for the inform Afghanistan batters as they took 41.5 overs to reach the target with 5 wickets in hand courtesy Gulbadin Naib’s 46 and M Shahzad’s 43.

AFGH vs IRE Dream11 Fantasy Team

Risky Picks:

Dawlat Zadran and Najibullah are expected to be benched for this game, although Dawlat picked up a 3-fer in the last game but is likely to be sidelined for this one. Aftab Alam will be featuring in place of him if he is rested.

We have taken Dawlat Zadran in our second team here if he features.

Safest Bets

The Afghan spinners are almost unplayable in these conditions and the Irish side have seen the wrath of them so far. Rashid Khan, Mujeeb and Mohammad Nabi have been the workhorse for the Afghan.

The X-Factors for Ireland will be William Porterfield, Paul Stirling, seamer Boyd Rankin and left-arm spinner George Dockrell. All-rounder Simi Singh and Kevin O’Brien are safe bets as well.

If DAWLAT ZADRAN features in this game.

Note: Make AFGH vs IRE Dream11 Team as per your discretion from the squad listed in the article.
