Ireland levelled the 3-match ODI series with a thumping win in the last game. Both the teams will lock horns in the series decider. Series honours will now be awarded to the side that prevails in the final ODI. The 3 wickets win in the second ODI was the first win for the hosts in the entire tour. Ireland would be looking to carry the momentum after an improved batting show. Here are the probable dream XI for the Irish side:

Ireland: William Porterfield, Andrew Balbirnie, Paul Stirling, Gary Wilson, Niall O Brien, Simi Singh, Kevin O Brien, Andy McBrine, Tim Murtagh, Boyd Rankin and Peter Chase.

On the other hand, Afghanistan would aim to bounce back and win the ODIs to end the tour on a winning note. Earlier, the Afghan side have won the T20I series. For Afghan’s their biggest power is their strong bowling line up with likes of Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman who can provide the team with a good start. Here we see the probable dream XI for Afghans:

Afghanistan: Rahmat Shah, Hashmatullah Shahidi, Hazratullah Zazai, Asghar Afghan, Mohammad Shahzad, Mohammad Nabi, Gulbadin Naib, Rashid Khan, Aftab Alam, Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Najibullah Zadran.
