AFGH vs IRE Dream11 Team Prediction of 1st ODI: Preview
Afghanistan and Ireland will collide at Belfast, Ireland to begin the two-match ODI Series. We will provide Dream11 Team Prediction, Preview and Probable Playing XI for the AFGH vs IRE Dream11 match.
Afghanistan recently clinched ODI series against Scotland and will be buzzing with momentum. They have a very strong squad capable to challenge any team on their day and will be determined to prepare well for the World Cup defeating Ireland. Also with Nabi and Rashid back in the squad, Afghanistan will keep no stones unturned to make their presence felt in the international circuit a few days before the start of much-awaited World Cup 2019.
Team Ireland has been scarce from victories in recent past and failed to get a single victory in Tri-Series against Bangladesh and Windies. There were some positives for the team with Paul Stirling, Andy Balbirnie, Kevin O Brien and Porterfield scoring plenty of runs and will be determined to continue the run flow against Afghanistan. The focus will be on the pace attack led by Rankin and witty spin bowling of Dockrell to stop Afghan power-hitters. Ireland will hope for a unison effort from all players to give a tough challenge to Mighty Afghanistan team.
