    Ireland vs Afghanistan series in India! [Afghanistan win T20Is 3-0 & ODIs 3-2]

    Been eagerly anticipating this series despite expecting us to lose. Series between us tend to throw up fair amounts of controversy and drama.

    Will be a tough challenge for us in foreign conditions but screw it, we're playing cricket!!

    Series is also being broadcast live on DD Sport and RTA or something? An Indian station anyway, check ACBofficials twitter account they have it there

    Predictions...

    T20 - 2-1 Afghanistan
    ODI - 3-2/4-1 Afghanistan
    IC Cup - Ireland to win a tight match

    I can't explain how excited I am. This is like the Ashes of the Associate nations. Afghanistan have had a lot of cricket to play and have been largely aided by playing in Pakistan, so I expect them to win the series. However, the Irishmen are no children and this will be no walk in the Park. Ireland have won bigger games than Afghanistan ever will, at least in the near future.

    Afghanistan's reputation is extremely overstated because playing against average sides like Zimbabwe and Bangladesh.

    Supporting Ireland for this. O Brian brothers need to step up and show their experience when it matters most.

    Our spin bowling seems to be stronger than ever before with Dockrell showing form and Mulder bursting onto the scene. But our batting will seriously struggle I reckon. Bar Wilson and Niall I can't think of any player I'd say is "good" against spin.

    Noida is now the home of Afghanistan to host foreign teams. Great for them. Thanks to India helping them by providing ground to use as home. Hope they will progress by the advantage given by India. Hope for cracking series.all the best to our neighbor.

    For the first game on the tour thats a fairly decent effort I think! Pitch seems flat but we'll see how we bowl before judging it. Thompson finally showed some of the potential he's lacked for the past two years.

    If you'd have offered me 165 before the game I'd have taken it tbh, we're still redeveloping as a t20 side.

    Good to see young Tucker get a game as well. With him, Thompson,Mulder,Young,Dockrell,Stirling all under 26 we've got a fairly young side!

    Afghanistan won the last match by 6 wickets.

    2nd t20 today 10/3/17

    Afghanistan won the toss and elected to bat 1st.

    184/8 in 20 overs.

    @donalcozzie

    Did you watch the last over? What was the fielder thinking? Najibulah zadran hit the last ball for a six and an Ireland fielder went over the boundry rope , stayed on the other side of the rope and jumped up to throw the ball back in, thinking he would be fine?

    Obviously it was given as a six!

    64/2 after 6.1 and rain hits.

    After the break Ireland given 111 in 11 overs.

    Basically needed 47 from 5 overs with 8 wickets in hand.

    Then Rashid Arman took 5 wickets for 3 runs.
    What a spell.
    Ireland ended with 93/9 and Afghanistan won 17 runs D/L

    The video might come as the match was being telecast live on DD sport ( india) and afghan Tv.

    Great win for Afghanistan, we have been unbeaten in 9 t20s and another series win.

    Afghanistan has three very good players.

    Shehzad
    Nabi
    Rashid

    Hamid Hassan was special too but injuries hampered his progress.

    All the best to them. Cricket needs more competitive teams.

    Rashid was the main difference. Economy of 5.5 and average of 6. Took 9 wickets. Amazing stats on this wicket. None of the other bowlers even comes close in this series to his stats. Rightly named man of the series.

    Really sad how Ireland performed. But lots of positives. LOTS really. Thompson is one for the future. If Ireland play more matches and hopefully Tests soon, he will be one of the bests in the world. Without a doubt. What do you say @DonalCozzie

    Ireland team has not been able to replace Johnston, Mooney and Cusack. They were all pretty handy pace bowlers. And could hit the ball as well towards the end. They also used to have Neil O'Brien who used to be really handy player as well. For the OdI's they will have Neil O'Brien, Rankin and Ed Joyce back and that will strengthen the side considerably. The OdI's will be much more even.

    Their new players has not really made a name for themselves yet. It was nice to see Stuart Thompson this series to see what he really can do. Also nice to see Sterling back. He's not been as good as he was few years ago. Dockrell the most promising spinner also lost his way a bit. I think Ireland need better coaches. Maybe a spin coach because they seem to have good spinners with potential.

    Perhaps. I would like to see a swing bowler playing for them. Someone with genuine swing, even if not a lot of pace. Someone like Josh Davey of Scotland.

    The Irish batting is top class and I will go as far as saying that they can be a better Test batting side than Zimbabwe, Bangladesh and even West Indies probably but bowling needs lots of work.

    I think Ireland and Afghanistan should have been given test status 3-4 years ago. Could have developed even more. Ireland need the extra money to take the next step. It will be difficult to beat Ireland in tests in home conditions for Asian teams. Afghanistan already miles ahead of Zimbabwe when it comes to reserve strength and player development.

    Unless there is a two tier test system Ireland (and Afghanistan probably) are years away from being granted test status.

    And teams like Bangladesh, WIs, SL, Zim etc will never vote for a two tier system.

    Not sure what the answer to this problem is.

    Nevertheless, congrats to Afghanistan on this series victory - they are coming on leaps and bounds in LOI cricket.

    There is a Facebook page called " Afghanistan cricket" , it has a lot of videos of the matches and highlights too. It's not the official Afghanistan cricket board page but some page set up by fans.

    They've only beaten Bangladesh twice, not 3 times. And the first time was a Bangladesh A team...no Shakib, Tamim, Mashrafee. Thats like playing Australia without Smith, Warner, and Starc.

    Afghan's bowling is pretty decent (hope Hamid returns too).
    The problem is their batting (apart from Shehzad).


    Sarfi as captain'll lead us to glory.Babar'll be our best odi bat & Haris'll be world class in tests

    Why settle for the Irish? Bring on Australia and India, have you seen the way those clowns try and play spinners? We'd destroy them and send them running home to their mothers

    Rashid Khan is ranked #5 on the T20I bowlers list, pretty impressive.

    Would be good to see how he fares in IPL and CPL.

    There should be a cap on where you can rank if you rarely play against top teams.

    He is not top 5, he hasn't faced top teams yet.

    Afghanistan are going to play a series of 5 ODIs & 3 T20Is against West Indies in June, about same time as Champions Trophy

    And looking at the way West Indies played against England, if Afghanistan can sort out their batting issues and make 270-280 in ODIs, they should win the series comfortably. Expecting Afghanistan to win T20Is if Gayle, Bravo, etc don't play

    There were lot of Afghan nationals in the stadium. Indian supporters were mostly neutral and supported both teams, but Afghan support was louder and more vocal in the stadium

    I just turned 30 in November

    And I have always been supporting Associate nations in cricket from a very long time as I want cricket to grow and have about 20 test playing nations rather than just 10

    Well all thing considered I'm impressed at how we did lol. With the exception of the post rain 5 over period in the 2nd game, we actually batted really damn well for a team who were absolutely awful at this format a couple months back.

    Unfortunately a combination of Rashid Khan, and us bowling 1-2 awful overs at key points has cost us the series. Kevin's 27 run over was the difference in the first game, and in the third game well less said the better about that bowling display haha. Gotta say though, anyone who's followed the three games can see that they weren't quite as one sided as they might seem (least in my view). Considering AFG are a far superior t20 side to us thats not too bad for me.

    Anyway, t20's will have given us some much needed experience. The batting actually seems to be alright in that format for now, bowlers need work (As always). Thompson finally finally justifying the faith put in him, played really well and young Tucker did alright for someone only finding his feet at this level.

    Key games start Wednesday with the ODI's. I'd gladly take a t20 whitewash if we win even 2 ODI's tbh. Not gonna be easy but will be watching Wednesday.

    Apologies for my inactivity last few days, was visiting a friend in Holland for the weekend.

    Does cricket survive off of it's money or does it survive for it's money?
