Betting Tips
  • Captain Andy Balbirnie could only make one run from five balls on Friday but he has been in excellent form in the series. He is our tip for Ireland’s highest run scorer on Monday. With the ball, Josh Little has five wickets in the series so far and the left-arm quick is our pick for Ireland’s top wicket taker in this game.
  • Rahmanullah Gurbaz looked to have come to terms with the pitch in Stormont as he made 53 from 35 balls in the last game. He is our recommendation for Afghanistan’s highest run scorer in this match. Naveen ul-Haq took 3-38 in the third IT20 and the pace bowler is well worth backing as Afghanistan’s top wicket taker in this clash.
  • Josh Little has taken two wickets in each of his last two games. We suggest backing him to take over 1.5 wickets in Monday’s IT20.

IRE vs AFG 4th T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips

Ireland and Afghanistan lock horns for the fourth match of five in this IT20 series on Monday afternoon in Stormont, Belfast. After winning the opening two games of the series by seven and five wickets, the hosts came up 22 runs short in Friday’s clash. Read on as we preview the penultimate game of the series. This match gets underway at 15:30 local time.

Ireland had a poor start to their chase on Friday but got themselves back into the game thanks to a key eighth-wicket partnership. Their never say die attitude has served them well for a long time against the bigger sides.

The Afghan bowlers looked far more comfortable and their fielders backed them up in the last match. If they can get Rashid Khan firing again then they will be very hard to beat on Monday.

It was the pace bowlers who took the bulk of the wickets in Friday’s game and we expect to see good pace, bounce and carry on this surface again. A par score will be 180+.

Ireland Team News & Playing 11

IRE Team News

There were two debutants for Ireland ahead of the third IT20 with bowling all-rounder Fionn Hand and fast-medium bowler Graham Hume coming in for Barry McCarthy and Andy McBrine. Although both were quite expensive with the ball, we expect to see them both in the side again for this match.

IRE Key Players

  • Andy Balbirnie- the 31 year old top order batter hit 97 runs from the opening two games of the series. This match will be a test of his captaincy as we will see if he can get the players back at their best.
  • Lorcan Tucker- the 25 year old was more fluent in Friday’s match after producing a low strike-rate in the previous game. He has developed into a very consistent IT20 batter.
  • Josh Little- the opening bowler picked up the wickets of Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Ibrahim Zadran in the third IT20. He has taken at least one wicket in each of his last 13 games in this format.

IRE Team Form

Ireland will have been disappointed to have ended their winning run but there were still plenty of positive in Friday’s defeat.

Ireland Predicted Playing 11

Paul Stirling, Andy Balbirnie (c), Lorcan Tucker (wk), Harry Tector, Gareth Delany, Curtis Campher, George Dockrell, Mark Adair, Fionn Hand, Graham Hume, Josh Little

Afghanistan Team News & Playing 11

AFG Team News

Exciting opening batter Hazratullah Zazai had recovered sufficiently from illness and was able to make his first appearance in the series on Friday. He took the place of Hashmatullah Shahidi and produced a useful 39 at the top of the order.

AFG Key Players

  • Rahmanullah Gurbaz- the 20 year old keeper-batter smashed nine boundaries on his way to his fourth IT20 half-century.
  • Fazalhaq Farooqi- with Rashid Khan slightly off-colour, more responsibility has fallen on Farooqi. The young left-arm pace bowler dismissed both Irish openers in the last match.
  • Naveen ul-Haq- although he has gone for runs in this series, his ability as a strike wicket-taker can not be questioned. He picked up the wickets of Harry Tector and Curtis Campher in the third IT20.

AFG Team Form

One win does not mean their form has turned around but Afghanistan looked a lot sharper from ball one in Stormont on Friday.

Afghanistan Predicted Playing 11

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

Ireland vs Afghanistan Prediction

With Ireland winning the opening two matches, the series is now very well poised after Afghanistan got the victory on Friday. Not only did they win, but the visitors looked far more at ease with the conditions when batting and in the field. We are backing Afghanistan to win and to level the series on Monday.

Final Verdict

Afghanistan are favourites to beat Ireland at odds of 1.53
