Good work from the Afghans, they’ve still got some spinners to fully integrate and they have some young batsmen to hopefully unearth.

Just lack some good pacemen.

Just lack some good pacemen.

Their batting is definitely still weak, hopefully some of their young batters develop, quite a few of them did well in their domestic comps. But agree, pacers are lacking also.

Afghans are just eating up Ireland. Andrew McBrine (IRE) is a nobody.

Checked out some video of zazai on YouTube, technique isn’t the greatest, but sometimes players are successful regardless (eg zaman).

Another win for the Afghan team. This time they successfully defended 227. A game I thought the Irish would win...but I forget that Afghanistan's strength is their bowling.

Their bowlers shared the wickets; no bowler getting more than 2.

*Anyone noticed Asghar Stanikzai changing his name to Asghar Afghan?

Pretty great to have the option of a couple of good leggy’s (rashid, Qais Ahmad), a couple of good offies (mujeeb, Nabi), a good left arm chinaman (zahir khan) and a good SLA (amir hamza).

Ind is the host. Flat pitches in UAE. They will get smoked.

a good LegSpinner is still very effective in Flat pitches

I’m getting little worried about Afg in Asia cup. We can’t afford to lose against them.

Nabi, Mujeeb, Rashid bowled 30 overs and choked IRE batsmen

^ won't be surprised to see these guys go to round two. At the moment, luckily our seniors are in good form. So cross your finger and hope that atleast 2-3 performs. Cause we all know, juniors are doing jack.

Was just talking in general, they have solid options in all spin departments which gives them a lot of versatility.

If Ireland don't win today they will get whitewashed in this series as well. Someone needs to step up and bat for a long period.

40 runs needed 5 wickets in hand. Hmmm!!! 15 overs left. Tense time. Gary Wilson WK comes in joins Simi Singh in the middle.

Series tied. 1-1. Ireland wins by 3 wickets. Simi 36*.


Murtagh should be the MoM. Great effort.


Afghans didn't give up. Well played. They just need to calm down. Too much talking on the field.

What a turnaround, well done IRE.

The first innings video should be a good camp lesson for our bowlers.

Again the 1st Innings video of the 3rd match can be a good camp session for our batsmen specially the newbies.

As for the series I hoped a better come back from IRE.

The future for Afghans looks bright. The future of Ireland.... Unless Shakib-Tamim-Riyad type players comes up within next Five years....I don't know.

They are clearly the better limited overs team.
Ireland's first class system is quite structure- Donal can attest to this

^Agree. I do not know how without having a proper domestic structure ICC can allow a team to compete at the highest level. Performance-wise BD lacked in miles while it earned test status but nobody can deny the legacy of the sport BD carried at that point. Actually Cricket was first played in BD when it came to sub-continent (there is a thread about that). Our domestic structure has been pretty solid since independence.
