Match Preview

Afghanistan started as favorites in the 3-match series and they haven’t let their fans down taking an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series. The side would now look to whitewash the Irish side in the next game. Ireland has lost key moments in both these games which have led to their loss. The side will need to gather strength from their strong batting line-up and hope for a better show from their bowling attack.

Ireland’s problems are further compounded by their poor record against Afghanistan. They have lost the last 12 games against the Afghan side and this would surely play in the minds when they take the field in the next game. The Afghans, on the other hand, would start as a confident lot. With the conditions working in their favor, they would look to deliver their best performance.

Teams Preview

Afganistan

Asghar Afghan’s side has been professional in their approach in both the games so far and has won them convincingly. They have played to their strength making the Irish side struggle with a good spin bowling attack. As the side now plays the last game the skipper would be looking to drub the Irish side 3-0. Their openers Hazratullah Zazai and Rahmanullah Gurbaz are in brilliant form at the moment and the side would be expecting a good start from these players.

The middle-order is also looking good with Asghar Afghan and Mohammad Nabi stroking the ball well. In Gulbadin Naib and Karim Janat, the side has good finishers down the order and they would aim to trouble the Irish attack.

They have bowled well so far in both the games where Shapoor Zardan and Mujeeb Ur Rahman have troubled the opponents with the new ball. Rashid Khan looks in excellent form at the moment. They have good depth in their bowling attack with bowlers like Nabi, Gulbadin Naib and Karim Janat in the side.

Afganistan Actual Playing XI:

Karim Janat, Asghar Afghan, Gulbadin Naib, Naveen-ul-Haq, N Zadran, Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Usman Ghani, Mohammad Nabi, Qais Ahmad

Ireland

Andrew Balbirnie would be upset about having lost the last two games. They haven’t been completely knocked out but have failed to capitalize on the opportunities that have come their way. The side will now have to come up with a special performance to win the next game and hope to see the better show from its bowling attack. Paul Stirling and Kevin O’Brien form a good opening pair and they have done well so far in the series. For the side to win this game they will need a good start from their openers.

Balbirnie has looked good at No. 3 and the side will expect good contributions from the likes of Gareth Delany, Harry Tector and Lorcan Tucker down the order as these players have shown their skills with the bat. It is their bowling attack which has led to their loss in both the games and the side will need to make improvements on this front.

Simi Singh and Joshua Little have done well but the rest of the bowling attack has gone for runs. The side would need a good show from Boyd Rankin with him being their most experienced bowler. Craig Young and George Dockrell need to check their economy rates going into the next game.

The skies would be mostly clear over Noida on March 10 with the odd clouds. The conditions would be good for a game. The surface is expected to be a flat one where batsmen will be able to play on the up. Spinners would get some assistance here but we expect a big score given the true pace and bounce on this surface.

Venue Details

Greater Noida Sports Complex Ground is a ground with an electrifying outfield which makes run scoring easy. Batsmen have enjoyed great success at this venue. There hasn’t been much in for the fast bowlers here but spinners who pitch the ball up have got good rewards on this wicket.

Toss Prediction

The pitch has been a belter in both the games and lot of runs have been scored. Batting in the second innings has been slightly challenging as the ball has turned more. Going into the game we believe the side winning the toss would prefer to bat first and put up a big score on the board.

Winning Prediction

Ireland has an uphill task given the kind of form we have seen from their bowlers. Their bowling attack hasn’t been able to challenge Afghanistan’s batsmen. Apart from Simi Singh, they don’t have a quality spinner on this side which is a big handicap for them on these kinds of surfaces.

Afghanistan is in excellent form at the moment and having already defeated Ireland twice would start as favorites in this game.
