Ireland vs Afghanistan 3rd T20I: FPJ’s dream XI prediction for Ireland and Afghanistan

Afghanistan and Ireland will clash again for the 3rd and final T20 International (T20I) match on August 24 at Bready Cricket Club, Bready, Northern Ireland. The match starts at 8:30 PM (IST). Afghanistan have a good record against Ireland in twenty20 cricket, Afghanistan have won 9 and Ireland won 3 out of 12 matches they have played against each other.

Ireland squad: Gary Wilson, William Porterfield, Stuart Thompson, Andrew Balbirnie, Paul Stirling, Kevin O Brien, Simi Singh, Boyd Rankin, Joshua Little, Peter Chase and George Dockrell.

Afghanistan defeated Ireland by 16 runs in the first T20i. It was followed by a massive 81-run victory in the second game where Ireland were all out for 79. Coming into the fixture, Afghanistan would look to keep intact their winning run in the T20Is, as they have not lost a game this year.

Afghanistan Squad: Mohammad Shahzad, Hazratullah Zazai, Asghar Afghan, Najibullah Zadran, Samiullah Shenwari, Shafiqullah Shafiq, Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Aftab Alam and Fareed Ahmad.
