Main Spinners: Rashid Khan, Mujeeb and Mohammad Nabi

Main Pacers: Naveen Ul Haq, A Omarzai and Fareed Malik

Death overs: Naveen Ul Haq and A Omarzai/Rashid Khan

Important Picks in the Small Leagues: 

  1. Hazratullah Zazai: Naturally attacking player Hazratullah Zazai will open the inning for Afghanistan team. He is leg side dominant player. In power plays, he can hit some nasty blows and can provide good points. Against Ireland, he has terrific average of 64.3 in 8 international matches and have astonishing strike rate of 173.1 thus a must have pick in your dream11 team.
  2. Rahmanullah Gurbaz: Afghanistani opener is looking in good touch. In previous two matches, he has provided blistering start to his team by making 53 and 24 runs respectively. Although, his inconsistency is the biggest issue, but his wicketkeeping skill makes him a decent choice in your team.
  3. Najibullah Zadran: One of the best batter of Afghanistan team, Najibullah Zadran will bat at number four and can promote himself if needed. Southpaw can play according to the situation. In this series, he has made two 40+ score which includes fifty of the previous match as well (15, 8, 42, 50).
  4. Mohammad Nabi: Afghanistani all rounder is the most impactful player of this team. He can contribute with both bat and ball. Afghanistani captain is all set to bowl 4 overs and down the order can score with quick strike rate. But in this series, he hasn’t fired with the bat and in last match didn’t bowl a single over. Still, he will remain an important pick in your team but making him captain will be risky.
  5. Rashid Khan: Afghanistani spinner is the most skilful bowler of modern day cricket. Against weaker opponent like Ireland, he is the perfect captaincy material for your dream11 team. In the last match, he has shown his capabilities with both bat and ball. Afghanistani spinner has made quick fire 30 runs and then provided two important breakthroughs to his team.
  6. Naveen Ul Haq: Afghanistani pacer is one of the skill full bowler of death overs. He used to deceive bowlers with his slower ones and cutters. In his last 7 matches, he has taken 10 wickets ( 24/4, 26/0, 32/1, 12/1,39/1, 38/3, 25/2) and in previous match as well, he played an important role in Afghanistan win by taking two important wickets when it was needed. For Afghanistan, he will bowl in death overs and thus a must have pick in your dream11 team.

Trump Card Picks:

  1. Mujeeb Ur Rahman:
  2. Ibrahim Zadran

IRELAND Team Preview:

They have surprised their opposition by playing well against spinners in this series. Irish team is an average performer of this format but surely, their skillset has improved from the last few series.

This is must win game for them and they will want to play with their best 11. So, we can expect some changes in their team.

Probable11 of the Team:

Paul StirlingRHB+RAO

Andy Balbirnie: RHB

Lorcan Tucker: RHB

Harry Tector: RHB

George Dockrell: RHB+LAO

Gareth Delany: RHB+RAL

Curtis Campher/ Simi Singh: RHB + RAM/ RHB + Off Break

Main Pacers: Joshua Little and Mark Adair(Curtis Campher will assist them)

Main Spinners: Gareth Delany (George Dockrell will assist him)

Expected Death Overs: Joshua Little and Mark Adair

Important Picks:

  1. Paul Stirling: He is one of the finest Irish batter of this format. He has the ability to use the power play in the  best way. On his day he can single handedly win the game for Ireland. Recently, he is not performing well, as Irish opener is unable to convert his start into big one. His recent form is very poor and thus will not be must have pick but will remain an important pick in your dream11 team.
  2. Harry Tector: Technique wise, he is one of the best Irish batter of this team. He knows how to play according to different situation. In this series, he hasn’t played well but he will remain the important pick in your dream 11 team.
  3. Mark Adair: He is all certain to bowl in death overs because of his variations. He is good in bowling change of pace, cutters and Yorkers which makes him difficult to hit in slog overs. Sometimes, he used to get wickets in bundles. His batting ability makes him the most important pick of your dream11 team.
  4. Joshua Little: One of the finest Irish bowler who has the ability of taking wickets. If Little bowls well in initial overs, then is all certain to bowl in death as well. It seems that in this series, he is getting his bowling rhythm back.
  5. Gareth Delany: Irish spinner has performed well with his bowling and is bale to provide important breakthroughs to his team at important junctures.He can provide good points with his batting as well, thus a must have pick in your dream11 team. In this series, he has taken 7 wickets in 4 matches which includes two three wicket haul in last 3 matches (27/1(4), 19+2/3(4), 16+33/0(4), 3+33/3(3), ).
