Team NEWS:

 AFG Team News 

Naveen-ul-Haq and Qais Ahmad were among the players who had to be patient last time out, but both could be given an opportunity in this game if Afghanistan choose to rotate their bowling options. Shapoor Zadran and Mujeeb Ur Rahman were both expensive with the ball, so they could be the two to make way.

 IRE Team News 

Lorcan Tucker kept wicket last time out, with Stephen Doheny having to wait for his first Ireland cap. Other players that will now be pushing for a recall include Shane Getkate, with giant seamer Boyd Rankin’s expensive bowling putting his place at risk.

 Key Players: 

  IRE Key Players: 

 Paul Stirling: 
Top-scored with 95 in Ireland’s last T20i win, against the West Indies, and hit 60 to top score in the opening game of this series too.

Kevin O’Brien: 
Smashed 35 from 17 balls at the top of the order last time out, as the Irish openers put on a 63-run partnership in the powerplay.

 Simi Singh:  
 Took 2-18 from his three overs last time out, transferring his recent good ODI form with his off-spin to T20i level.

 AFG Key Players: 

 Rashid Khan:
The world’s top-ranked bowler in T20i cricket has been freed from the constraints of the captaincy and flourished last time out with 3-22, including the key wicket of Paul Stirling.

 Hazratullah Zazai:
Hit two fours and two sixes as he played his part in a rapid 50-run opening partnership, showing signs he could be returning to his big-hitting best.

 Mohammad Nabi:
In good form in franchise T20 cricket and top of the all-rounder rankings at international level, it is testament to Afghanistan’s strength that he only had a minimal role in the last win.

 Team Forms: 


Afghanistan have now won their last three consecutive T20 internationals – two against the West Indies and now this one against Ireland. Rashid Khan was man of the match last time out, taking 3-22, though Najibullah Zadran’s 42* from 21 balls was ultimately the innings that won the game for Afghanistan.


Ireland drew their previous series with the West Indies, but they must win this second game of this one against Afghanistan if they are to keep it alive into the third match. Paul Stirling hit 60 last time out, and there were some useful batting contributions in a total of 172/6, while Simi Singh’s 2-18 had Ireland on top with the ball at one point, only for Afghanistan to recover to 133/5 from 15 overs when the rain came – a comfortable DLS-method win for the hosts.
