Afghanistan will be up against Ireland in the second ODI of the three-match series on March 9 at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium in Sharjah. Hashmatullah Shahidi-led side are 1-0 up in the series after they won the first encounter by 35 runs. 

In the first ODI, visitors opted to chase after winning the toss at the Sharjah ground, which is known for its shorter boundaries. However, Afghanistan proved the decision of Ireland as a mistake after taking the charge early on in the game. They cruised to an excellent score of 310/5 with the help of a scintillating knock of 121 from opener Rahmanullah Gurbaz. 

Chasing the monumental task of 311, Ireland got off to a horror start with their top three batters back in the pavilion at a mere total of 34. With the heavy defeat rallying around the corner, the two middle-order batters in Harry Tector and Lorcan Tucker added 173-runs for the fourth wicket to steady the chase. However, their association only delayed the inevitable as Paul Stirling’s side fell 35 runs short of the target.
