Afghanistan Tour of Ireland, 2022- Squads, Fixtures and All you need to know
Afghanistan will be touring Ireland to play 5 T20I matches starting on the 9th August, 2022. The fifth and the last T20I will be played on the 17th August 2022.
FIXTURES, STATS AND RESULTS
All of the matches are supposed to be played at the Civil Service Cricket Club, Stormont, Belfast.
Ireland's form in the T20I's has been miserable in the recent times. They are coming fresh off a 2-0 defeat by South Africa. Previously, they have lost the T20I series against both India and New Zealand as well.
A few players in the Irish side are performing consistently though. Harry Tector is one of them while George Dockrell has also shown his character in tough situations. Ireland really need to work on their bowling department if they are willing to pose any competition to the strong Afghanistan side.
Afghanistan on the other hand have been in brilliant form in the T20I cricket. They had beaten Zimbabwe by 3-0 in a T20I series played in June this year. Prior to that, Afghanistan tied the 2 match T20I series against Bangladesh at 1-1.
Najibullah Zadran is a top class player in the ranks of Afghanistan national side. He recently amassed plenty of runs in the Shpageeza Cricket League. He will be play a key role for Afghanistan in the upcoming series against Ireland.
