In the five-match series against Ireland, Afghanistan has returned. The third game saw a strong showing by the visitors, who defeated the home team Ireland by 22 runs to take a 1-2 lead. The Afghans would like to even the series at this point and force a game seven. The Irish team would like to win this series and get back on track.
On August 15, Belfast’s sky would be cloudy. So far, the ball has come to the bat nicely on a flat surface, allowing batsmen to use their strokes. In the first few overs of the game, the bowlers would receive some help. In order for the batting team to feel secure, they would need 160 runs. Without a doubt, the team that wins this toss will choose to bowl first.
Before the third match, Fionn Hand, a bowling all-rounder, and Graham Hume, a fast-medium bowler, made their debuts for Ireland in place of Barry McCarthy and Andy McBrine. We anticipate seeing both in the starting lineup for this game, despite the fact that both were fairly pricey with the ball. Although the loss on Friday may have devastated Ireland because it broke their winning streak, there were still many positives.
Hazratullah Zazai, the intriguing first batter, was able to play his first game of the series on Friday after overcoming his ailment. Hashmatullah Shahidi was replaced by him, and he delivered a helpful 39 at the top of the list. Even while one victory does not indicate a change in form, Afghanistan on Friday in Stormont seemed much more focused right away.
