 Match Finished 

 AFG Key Players:

 Asghar Afghan: 
The Afghanistan skipper Ashghar Afgnan will look to start the series on a positive note. He’s a good batsman and has a pretty decent record against Ireland. 


 Mohammad Nabi: 
Mohammed Nabi will be a key player in this set up. He is more than handy with the bat and will be crucial with his off spinners on these slow wickets.

 Rashid Khan: 
He’s one of the best spinners going around in world cricket will create a lot of trouble for the Irish batsmen.


 STR Key Players: 

 Paul Stirling:
Paul Stirling is one of the most consistent players for Ireland. He scored a brilliant 100 in the first ODI against UAE. He’ll be the biggest wicket for Afghanistan. 


 Kevin O’Brien:
He’s a destructive batsmen that can play big innings. He didn’t performed particularly well against UAE but we think he’ll need to play a big role against Afghanistan.

 Simi Singh:
Simi Singh picked up 5 wickets against UAE in his last match on this same venue. Ireland would want him to replicate his performance.
