Afghanistan will take on Ireland in the first of the three-match T20I series on Friday, March 14, in Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah. In the ODI series before the T20I series, the Shahidi-led side humbled Ireland with a 2-0 margin. However, it was Ireland who came out on top in the one-toss that was played in Abu Dhabi. 

For Afghanistan, ace leg spinner Rashid Khan will return to the side as a leader after missing out on the previous two series due to injury. Apart from the skipper, their veteran off-spinner Mujeeb-ur-Rahman is also returning to the side, thus boosting the bowling artillery of the hosts.  Ireland, on the other side, are going with a full-fledged squad that also played in the 50-over format. However, their concern lies in their inability to play spin well and the home side comprises ace spinners Rashid, Mujeeb, Nabi, and Noor. 

In this article, we will look at all the details of the 1st T20I between Afghanistan and Ireland.
