Ireland

William Porterfield’s side would want to do well in the first game of the two match series against Afghanistan. They recently lost all the games in the tri-series against Bangladesh and West Indies where they failed to compete in most of the games barring one. The side would like to draw confidence from some of the individual performance that their players had put up in the series. Porterfield would know that the Afghanistan side is likely to come hard at them in the game and would want his men to play to their potential.

 

James McCollum and Paul Stirling will need to provide a good start to the side in the next game. Stirling would be confident having done well in the tri-series. William Porterfield, Andrew Balbirnie, Kevin O Brien and Mark Adair played well in the last series and they make the middle order look strong for the side going into this game. Their performance against Afghanistan’s spinners would be interesting to see. The bowlers haven’t done well in the recent games and the side would expect to see better performances from Boyd Rankin, Tim Murtagh and Mark Adair going into this game. Joshua Little and Barry McCarthy also need to make their contributions for the side to win.

 

Afghanistan

Gulbadin Naib’s team would threat this series as an opportunity to prepare for the upcoming World Cup. They did well in Scotland in the only game that they played. The team has a good bowling attack which has impressed in the last couple of years. It would be a big test for their batting ahead of the mega event in England. Naib would be looking to make the perfect start to the series and start off with a win. They have a better team compared to Ireland and the skipper would want his side to play to its strengths.

 

Hazratullah Zazai and the flamboyant Mohammad Shahzad make a very strong opening pair for the side and look to get them off to a good start. In Rahmat Shah the team has the perfect No. 3. Hashmatullah Shahidi, Asghar Afghan, Gulam Naib and Mohammad Nabi add to their batting strength. It is their bowling attack that separates the two sides. Dawlat Zardan and Mujeeb ur Rahamn would be expected to pick wickets with the new ball and Rashid Khan, Nabi and Hulam Gulbadin Naib would be looking to trouble the Irish batsman in the game.
