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

The Afghani bowlers rattled past the Afghan batsmen to hand their side a record 10th win over Ireland in the shortest format of the game. Ireland will make their way into the next encounter in a quest to stay alive in the series, whereas Afghanistan will look to seal the series in the second game itself.

The story of the previous game

Ireland’s interim skipper Paul Stirling won the toss and decided to have a go with the bat first. His decision did not pay dividends as they were reduced to 52 for 4 in the first 9 overs.  Afghan spinners bowled some tight overs which did not lead the Irish batsmen to score freely and they could only manage 132 on the board for the loss of 6 wickets.

Afghan’s reply was led by Mohammad Nabi who got 49 to his name and was proficient with the ball as well taking 2 wickets. Najibullah Zadran was unbeaten on 40 as Afghanistan chased the target with 4 balls to spare and 5 wickets in the kitty.
