AFGH vs IRE dream11 team prediction

Afghanistan dominated the T20 series against Ireland with ease. There were a few moments during the series when Ireland was in the hunt but for the most part, they were hopelessly outclassed. The series now moves on to the ODI leg, which is more important than usual considering the ICC World Cup 2019 is around the corner now.

Afghanistan has qualified for the ten-nation cricket world cup 2019 and will be keen to get its preparations in order against Ireland. There is no doubt in our mind that Afghanistan starts favourites for the ODI’s but Ireland is also a better ODI side than it is a T20 one.

In this post, we will go through in detail for each side and analyse the AUS vs IND Dream11 team along with the team news and previews.

  • Afghanistan will be going into the 1st ODI with their strongest 11 with their eye on the upcoming world cup.
  • The surface at Dehradun will assist the Afghanistan bowlers more. The tracks are for the spinners here.
  • Afghanistan is top heavy and they go weaker down the order.
  • Mohammad Shahzad, therefore, will be back in the squad for the ODI series. He was left out for the T20I series.
  • Hazratullah Zazai had just registered some record-breaking records. His quality batting will come handy in the ODI series as well.
  • Rahmat Shah, Mohammad Nabi, and Javed Ahmadi, therefore, will be in the playing 11 and should handle the middle order of the batting order.
  • Rahmat Shah will be key with the bat and he will be the one anchoring the innings for the team.
  • The spin trio is exceptional, but the pace attack of the team needs work. Team lack quality pace attack to open and close of the innings.

AFGH vs IRE – Paul

  • We don’t have too many expectations from Ireland coming into this series. They have not demonstrated any improvements over the last few years and are regularly losing to sides like Scotland and Netherlands as well.
  • The Ireland ODI side is also facing some similar problems as its T20 squad. The batting lineup is pretty weak and overly dependent on Paul Stirling to get its runs. Stirling played some very good innings in the T20 series, all of them in losing causes, but showed just why he is in so much demand across the world.
  • Kevin O Brien also scored some runs in the T20 series and is in good form. In the ODI format, though, he tends to bat a bit too low down the order to have a real impact on the game.
  • Some recognizable old faces will make a comeback into the ODI team like William Porterfield, and James McCollum.
  • The overall batting strength remains a bit underwhelming and we think they are going to struggle against the spinners.
  • The Irish bowlers were pretty hapless in the T20 series and not a lot has changed from that squad to the ODI one.
  • Boyd Rankin, Simi Singh, Tim Murtagh, Peter Chase, and George Dockrell are expected to be in the playing eleven.
  • These bowlers are neither express in pace nor big spinners of the ball. The biggest advantage they have going for them is discipline. If the Irish bowlers are able to keep good lengths and prevent the Afghan batsmen from attacking them then they could incite mistakes and pick up wickets.

The recent T20I matches at the venue have been high scoring. If the pitch curators don’t mess with the pitch, it should stay the same pretty much the same. But the venue is known for being a slow and low wicket and spinner always get a lot of assistance.
