Afghanistan vs Ireland ODI Series 2021

There will be a One-Day International series of 3 matches between Ireland and Afghanistan in January 2021. The Afghanistan Cricket Board will host the series, and the series will be very important for both teams as both teams are equally strong and at the same level in cricket. Both Ireland and Afghanistan will give their best to win the series. The series will also influence their ICC one-day International standings.

Most probably Andrew Balbirnie will lead the Ireland team, and Asghar Afghan will be the captain of Afghanistan team. Ireland team is very strong, and they have recently defeated England. Hence, they will look forward to dominating the series against Afghanistan. Afghan leg-spin bowler Rashid Khan will be big trouble for Ireland batsmen. Rashid Khan is a top-class spin bowler from Afghanistan. He has experience of playing cricket in the world's top leagues like IPL, BBL etc. 

All the matches will be held at the same venue at Abu Dhabi. The 1st match of the series will be held on January 21, 2021, Thursday at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. Both teams would like to achieve an early lead in the series.  The 2nd match of the series will be played on January 24, Sunday at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. The Abu Dhabi pitch will help the spin bowlers of both sides, and therefore spin bowlers will dominate in the series. The 3rd or last match of the ODI series between Ireland and Afghanistan will be played on January 26, Tuesday at Abu Dhabi. This match can also be the series-deciding match. The matches will be telecasted live at 10:00 AM Local time, and 11:30 AM in Indian standard time. It will be a very good opportunity for the youngsters of both teams to contribute to winning for their side.
