Afghanistan vs Ireland 2019, 1st ODI: After a dream T20I series, Afghanistan would love to continue the good work as they look to finalise on the World Cup squad. The Irish team has not been on the button and have not competed like they would have liked. Afghanistan’s star batsman Mohammad Shahzad is likely to make a comeback to the ODI squad and in all probability, he would open with open with Hazratullah Zazai.
Ireland haven’t played an ODI in over five months either, so the probable XIs are difficult to predict. However, we know for sure that William Porterfield returns as captain after Paul Stirling’s stint in the T20I leg of the tour.
