IRE vs AFG Betting Tips

  • Andy Balbirnie has delivered runs at a high strike-rate in the first, second and fourth games of the series. He has outscored his opening partner, Paul Stirling, and we are backing Balbirnie to be Ireland’s highest run scorer in this match. Josh Little went wicketless on Monday but will benefit from a 20 overs a-side match. The 22 year old is our tip for Ireland’s top wicket taker on Wednesday.
  • Opener Rahmanullah Gurbaz is one of the most exciting young batters in world cricket. He attacks from the first ball and he is our pick for Afghanistan’s highest run scorer against Ireland. With the ball, Rashid Khan took 2-21 from three overs in the fourth IT20 and the spinner is well worth backing as Afghanistan’s top wicket taker in this match.
  • Najibullah Zadran has been in excellent form with the bat. We recommend backing him to score over 20.5 runs in this clash.

IRE vs AFG 5th T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips

With the series level at 2-2, Ireland and Afghanistan go head to head for the final time on Wednesday afternoon at Stormont, Belfast. Ireland raced into a 2-0 lead and were on the verge of securing the series before the visitors won Friday’s and Monday’s shortened matches. Read on as we preview this fifth IT20. The game gets underway at 15:30 local time.

Ireland have given a good account of themselves in this series and would certainly have taken a 2-2 score ahead of the final match at the start of the series. One big performance is required with bat and ball.

Seeing Rashid Khan back in the wickets will give confidence across the Afghanistan side. They have a very strong record against Ireland and will be confident of securing the series on Wednesday.

Ireland Team News & Playing 11

IRE Team News

Curtis Campher and Graham Hume made way in the Ireland XI with pace bowler Barry McCarthy and spinner Simi Singh coming in for Monday’s game. Singh was the most economical of the Irish bowlers and McCarthy dismissed Rahmaullah Gurbaz so we expect them both to retain their spots in the side.

IRE Key Players

  • Andy Balbirnie - The captain understood the importance of quick runs at the top of the order in the 11 overs per side game. He ended with a strike rate of 300 after hitting 15 from five balls.
  • Lorcan Tucker - The keeper-batter was not at his fluent best in the shortened game but has had an excellent summer. He will be looking to sign off with another half-century.
  • Josh Little - The left-arm opening bowler often takes his wickets in his returning overs in the middle and latter part of an innings. He only had two overs on Monday but we expect him to be back in the wickets in this game.

IRE Team Form

Ireland have lost three of their last five IT20s but are still alive in this series and a win will see them record a famous series win over Afghanistan.

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

There were two changes for Afghanistan ahead of the fourth IT20. Usman Ghani and Noor Ahmad were left out with Fareed Ahmad and Sharafuddin Ashraf coming into the team. We expect the visitors to be unchanged as they look to make it three wins in a row to take the series.

AFG Key Players

  • Rahmanullah Gurbaz - The young keeper batter will have been disappointed to last only 13 balls on Monday but his quick-fire 24 runs got his team off to a brilliant start.
  • Rashid Khan - The world class spinner finally got his account up and running for the series with the dismissals of Gareth Delany and Barry McCarthy.
  • Naveen ul-Haq - The right arm medium fast bowler has been Afghanistan’s most consistent bowler in this series. He has taken seven wickets across the four games.

AFG Team Form

The visitors certainly have the momentum in the series after winning the last two games by 22 and 27 runs.
