Betting Tips
  • After hitting scores of 46 and 51, there can be no question that Andy Balbrinie is back in form. The skipper is our tip for Ireland’s highest run scorer. Josh Little continues to pick up wickets at awkward times for the opposition. He took 2-18 from four overs in the third IT20.
  • Hashmatullah Shahidi has hit 47 runs across the two games so far and is a talented batter in this format. The left-hander is well worth backing as Afghanistan’s highest run scorer. With the ball, it may not have worked out for him yet but we are backing Rashid Khan to come good as Afghanistan’s top wicket taker in this match.
  • In his strong form, Andy Balbirnie to score over 18.5 runs in this game looks like good value.

IRE vs AFG 3rd T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips

After the hosts beat Afghanistan by seven wickets with one ball remaining on Tuesday and by five wickets with six balls on Thursday, Ireland know that a win in this match will seal the series. Ireland have impressed across all disciplines against Afghanistan who have not looked at all comfortable away from the media. Read on as we preview this match. The game gets underway at 19:00 local time.

Ireland will feel they have turned a corner but will not want to rest on their laurels before they have strung together a larger group of wins. We fancy them to go 3-0 after this match.

Afghanistan are yet to show what they are made of in this series. They have not posted enough top batters and Ireland may well be able to contain them again in this game.

Ireland Team News & Playing 11

IRE Team News

As expected, the Irish hosts decided to keep faith with the same XI who had got them the win over Afghanistan ahead of Thursday’s game. With two wins from two, they just need one more push to get the series victory. With no injuries, we anticipate no chages to the side.

IRE Key Players

  • Andy Balbirnie- the skipper is living proof of how quickly your game can turn around in the shortest formats. He has scored 97 runs from his first two games in this series.
  • Lorcan Tucker- the keeper-batter made a useful 28 runs on Thursday but struggled to really get going. He is a fine batter and we expect him to notch up another half-century in this series.
  • Josh Little- the young left-armer brought his entire bowling game together in the second game of the series. He dismissed Usman Ghani and Azmatullah Omarzai in an excellent bowling performance.

IRE Team Form

Ireland have turned their season around and are now targeting their third win of the series to take an unassailable 3-0 lead.

Ireland Predicted Playing 11

Paul Stirling, Andy Balbirnie (c), Lorcan Tucker (wk), Harry Tector, George Delany, Curtis Campher, George Dockrell, Mark Adair, Andy McBrine, Barry McCarthy, Josh Little

Afghanistan Team News & Playing 11

AFG Team News

We expect to see the Afghanistan team management keep faith with the same XI from Thursday’s game. These players are clearly their most competitive available and now is the time to put together a consistent run of games for the players ahead of the T20 World Cup.

AFG Key Players

  • Usman Ghani- the right-handed attacking opener has played 28 IT20 games and averages over 25 runs per visit to the crease in the competition.
  • Rashid Khan- the young leg-spinner is still looking for his first wicket of the tournament. He conceded 27 runs from four overs in the last match against Ireland.
  • Mohammed Nabi- the vastly experienced 37 year-old all-rounder has raced to three wickets in the tournament. He dismissed Lorcan Tucker and Harry Tector in Thursday’s match.

AFG Team Form

Afghanistan came into this series in exceptional form but have not hit the heights as yet in this tournament.

Afghanistan Predicted Playing 11

Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), Usman Ghani, Hashmatullah Shahidi (c), Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi (c), Ibrahim Zadran, Azmatullah Moarzai, Rashid Khan, Naveen ul-Haq, Noor Ahmad, Mujeeb ur Rahman

IRE vs AFG Top Team Bowlers

Josh Little, Barry McCarthy and Andy McBrine are our tips to be the top bowlers for Ireland. McCarthy was expensive on Thursday and will be looking to make amends in this game.

We recommend Rashid Khan, Naveen ul-Haq and Mujeeb ur Rahman as our picks with the ball for Afghanistan. Naveen is a fine pace bowler who should be able to get some more assistance form the wicket.

Ireland vs Afghanistan Prediction

The hosts have been excellent in the two games of the tournament so far. Their losing run in IT20s now seems like a long time ago and it will take a huge turnaround for Afghanistan to win. We are backing Ireland to win the game and secure the series.

Final Verdict

Ireland are favourites to beat Afghanistan at odds of 2.25
