Afghanistan vs Ireland will play in the 25th match of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 at Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne
Afghanistan lost their first game against England and their second game was washed out against New Zealand without a ball being bowled and will consider themselves very unlucky. They need to win this game to keep their playoff hopes alive.
Their batting has been their major concern in the last few games and will look to perform well with the bat. With the ball, their bowling unit looks good enough compared to the batting unit with all their bowlers bowling very well at crucial times.
They have a very good record against Ireland and will look to fancy their chances to win this game. Weather report again looks very bad and Afghanistan will hope for a result at any cost.
Ireland pulled off a historic win against England in their last game. They will also be thankful for the weather and managed to win the game by 5 runs (DLS method).
Batting first, their batters looked very good, especially in the powerplay, and posted an above-par total of 157 runs. Andrew Balbirnie and Lorcan Tucker batted very well and scored 62 and 34 runs respectively.
With the ball, their bowlers bowled brilliantly and picked up wickets at regular intervals. Joshua Little and Finn Hand bowled very well and picked up 2 and 1 wickets respectively. They will be high on confidence going into this game.
