Top Picks for IRE vs AFG Dream11 Match:

Top Picks – Batters

In the first two games of the series, middle-order batter Najibullah Zadran struggled and managed just 23 runs. And in the final two games, he found his form again, and he is now Afghanistan’s leading series run-scorer. He scored 50 runs off of 24 balls and led the team to 132 runs in 11 overs in the previous game.

In the first game of this series, Andy Balbirnie scored a half-century. In the second game, he scored 46 runs on 36 pitches. Also in the first game, he was named Player of the Match. Balbirnie will try to help Ireland win the series with a major score even if he hasn’t contributed much in the last two games.

Top Picks – All-Rounders

With 134 runs in 4 games, George Dockrell leads the series in run scoring and has not yet been removed. He has made 40+ goals in each of the last two games. He’ll be trying to wrap up the series strong.

Gareth Delany has taken the most wickets for Ireland in the series with 6 in 4 games at an average of 18.67. In the last game, the 25-year-old all-rounder pulled up a three-wicket haul.

Top Picks – Bowlers

Rashid Khan made a great comeback in the last game of the series after struggling to take wickets in the first three games. In the fourth T20I, he gave an all-around performance that earned him Player of the Match honours. First, he led the squad to 132 runs overall by scoring 31 runs off just 10 pitches. He took 2 wickets for 21 runs in 4 overs while bowling.

For the first time this season, Fareed Malik was able to find a spot in the starting 11. In March of last year, he played his final T20I match for Afghanistan. In the previous game, the left-arm pacer had excellent rhythm and excellent control over his line and length. His subsequent bowling figures in the shortest format were also his best, as he took 3 wickets for just 14 runs in just 2 overs.

Top Picks – Wicketkeeper

Rahmanullah Gurbaz, who scored a half-century for Afghanistan in the third T20I, was named Player of the Match. Afghanistan will also be hoping that he gets off to a hot start in this game.

Suggested Playing XI No.1 for IRE vs AFG Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:

Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Paul Stirling, Najibullah Zadran (VC), Andy Balbirnie, George Dockrell (C), Azmatullah Omarzai, George Delany, Fareed Ahmad Malik, Mark Adair, Rashid Khan, Naveen-ul-Haq.

Suggested Playing XI No.2 for IRE vs AFG Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:

Lorcan Tucker, Rahmanullah Gurbaz (C), Paul Stirling, Najibullah Zadran, Andy Balbirnie, Ibrahim Zadran, Mohammad Nabi, George Dockrell, Rashid Khan (VC), Barry McCarthy, Naveen-ul-Haq.

IRE vs AFG Risky Captaincy Choices:

In the previous game, Azmatullah Omarzai took one wicket for 25 runs in two overs. After going without a wicket in the first three games, he finally got one in this series. Also in 9 games since making his T20I debut against Bangladesh in March, he has taken 6 wickets.

In the series, Joshua Little has taken 5 wickets at an average of 21 in 4 games. In the second T20I game, he took 2 wickets for 18 runs in 4 overs and was named Player of the Match. Little failed to pick up a wicket in the most recent game, surrendering 25 runs in just two overs.

Player you should avoid:

In 15 T20Is this year, Harry Tector has scored 335 runs, averaging 27.91. He hasn’t been able to have a big impact on this series, though. He should be avoided in your fantasy team for this game because he hasn’t been able to score more than 25 runs in the series.
