Match Prediction

  • Since not many international matches are being held in this stadium, it is hard to say anything about its scoring pattern yet. The conclusion can be drawn only after the first ODI because the pitch will surely perform differently in T20 and ODI matches.
  • Both these teams are not among the top 5 teams as per ICC rankings. Team Afghanistan is at the 10th position while team Ireland is at the 12th position.
  • In T20 cricket, team Afghanistan has constantly performed better than team Ireland. If the two teams enter the field with a similar mindset, team Afghanistan has more chances of winning the match.
  • The final prediction for the 2nd ODI match can only be made after the first ODI to see how the two teams perform against each other in a 50-over game.
