The 1st match of the 3 matches ODI Series between Ireland and Afghanistan will be played on January 21, Thursday at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. Spin bowlers will enjoy bowling here as the surface is helpful and wrist bowlers will get an extra turn from the surface, and hence they will try to dominate over batsmen. Each team has quality fast players with good experience. The ODI captain of Ireland team is Andrew Balbirnie, and the captain of Afghanistan team is Asghar Afghan. It will be very interesting to see how Ireland batsmen approach against Rashid Khan and other quality spin bowlers of Afghanistan team.
