Ireland is taking a tour around the United Arab Emirates. They played a 4-match ODI series against the host country, UAE. Two matches were missed due to COVID-19 concerns, so the matches ended as a draw. Now, Ireland is preparing to take on Afghanistan’s cricket team in Abu Dhabi for a One Day International(ODI) match series.

The ODI match series is part of the 2020-23 ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League. The third game of the ODI series is scheduled to be played on 26 January at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi. This is going to be a 50 overs per side match.

Both teams met in an unofficial match held on 16 January 2021 with Afghanistan winning with 23 runs in a 45-over-per-side in preparation for the ODI series. This match was Afghanistan’s first international match since March 2020. Their last game at the Noida, T20I, was also against Ireland. Ireland won that one, claiming the Super Over victory.

Other head-to-head stats of the teams show Ireland winning more matches, but with the heat Afghanistan brought to the cricket field for the warm-up match, anything can be expected on the match day. The following are the head-to-head stats of their previous matches:
