AFG vs IRE Betting Tips

  • Ibrahim Zadran top scored for Afghanistan in the defeat to England and the number three batter is a strong choice for their highest run scorer against Ireland. With the ball, Rashid Khan dismissed young England batting star Harry Brook on Saturday and he is our pick for Afghanistan’s top wicket taker in this game.
  • Andy Balbirnie hit 62 runs from 47 balls against England and the skipper is our tip for Ireland’s highest run scorer in this match. Josh Little dismissed both of England’s openers on Wednesday and the pace bowler is well worth backing as Ireland’s top wicket taker against Afghanistan.
  • Rashid Khan is one of the best spinners in the world and he is our recommendation to take over 1.5 wickets in this clash.

AFG vs IRE Match Prediction & Betting Tips, T20 World Cup 2022

Afghanistan take on Ireland on Friday afternoon in Match 25 of the 2022 T20 World Cup. Afghanistan are still looking for their first win of the campaign after losing to England and seeing their game with New Zealand abandoned without a ball bowled. Ireland recorded a famous win over England at this venue on Wednesday. Read on as we preview this match. The Super 12 stage game begins at 15:00 local time at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Afghanistan have struggled to pick up wins over recent games but have a strong overall record over Ireland. They will look to take advantage of Ireland’s supposed weakness against pace bowling.

Ireland will believe they can beat any side in this competition after beating England in their last match. They beat Afghanistan in their last IT20 meeting and will come into this game with plenty of confidence.

AFG vs IRE Match Toss Prediction

Although Ireland beat England by batting first on Wednesday, we predict that both captains will choose to field first ahead of this match.

AFG vs IRE Pitch Report

It is never the easiest place to bat with the long boundaries in Melbourne hard to clear. Expect the pitch to offer help to the quick bowlers and grip for the spinners.

The forecast is for very humid conditions and plenty of rain across Friday afternoon in Melbourne.

🏆 Afghanistan vs Ireland Prediction

With poor weather expected, this may well turn into a rain-reduced game with both teams batting for very few overs. We anticipate that both sides will see this as a winnable fixture and will look to attack from the start, irrespective of the length of the game. We are predicting a close contest with Afghanistan getting the win.
