LIVE SCORES - Afghanistan vs Ireland - 2nd T20I


Current T20I Form Afganistan and Ireland:

Ireland have surprised the cricket fraternity by beating a strong Afganistan side in the first T20I of the series by 7 wickets.


Afghanistan batted first and posted a competitive total of 168 for 7 on board in 20 overs. Opener Usman Ghani played brilliantly and smashed 59 in just 42 deliveries. He hit 6 fours and 2 sixes during the process. The middle order failed to provide any momentum to the innings. Some batters also lost their wickets at times when it mattered the most. The ballistic hitting in the last over by Ibrahim Zadran ensured that Afghanistan crossed the 160 run mark and reached 168 for 7 in 20 overs.

During the chase, Paul Stirling and Andy Balbirnie gave their team the perfect start. Both the batters added 61 runs for the first wicket partnership. Stirling made 31 before being dismissed by Mohammad Nabi. Andy Balbirnie then joined hands with Lorcan Tucker and both carted the Afghanistan bowlers to all parts of the ground. Balbirnie made 51 off 38 balls while Tucker scored 50 in 32 balls. The finishing touch was provided by the bat of Harry Tector and George Dockrell. Tector made 25 not out in 15 balls to take his team home on the 5th ball of the last over with 7 wickets in hand.


  Let’s have a look at the squads:

Ireland:

Andrew Balbirnie (captain), Mark Adair, Curtis Campher, Gareth Delany, George Dockrell, Stephen Doheny, Fionn Hand, Josh Little, Andrew McBrine, Barry McCarthy, Paul Stirling, Harry Tector, Lorcan Tucker, and Craig Young
