Ireland vs Afghanistan 2nd ODI Ballebaazi Fantasy Cricket Preview

Ireland

Ireland, despite losing the first ODI, looks pretty potent on paper. The team’s bowling unit is in a remarkable form; the bowlers showcased a spectacular performance and restricted the Afghan batsmen from scoring big. Tim Murtagh and Boyd Rankin are the crucial threats to the Afghans as they are economical as well as efficient with the ball. The Irish batsmen faltered and failed to chase a low target of 227. Andrew Balbirne and Gary Wilson did a decent job and tried scoring runs for the team. The Ireland squad will look to better their batting performance ahead of the second game.

Afghanistan

Afghanistan continues to prove their predominance in the ODI format also. They won the first match hands down and will look forward to sustaining their performance. Gulbadin Naib and Hashmatullah Shahidi hit a responsible half-century in the last match. Skipper Asghar Afghan and Mohammad Nabi are other key batsmen in the team. Rashid Khan, Mujeeb ur Rahman and Aftab Alam are the Mohammad Nabi will lead the bowling front. Having won the previous game, the squad is unlikely to tinker their playing XI.
