AFGH vs IRE Test Dream11 Prediction

Pitch report:

This will be the first time that Dehradun will host a Test, so there is very little which can be said about the pitch. Considering the scores and results in the ODIs, one thing is sure that the spinners will have an impact on the game even on the first day. The slowness of the wicket will also assist the medium pacers and aid very minimal swing. Having said that, batting shouldn’t be a lot difficult and we could see some good balance between bat and ball on all the five days of this game.

Zahir Khan and Sayed Shirzad are two of the new faces who have been added to the Afghanistan squad for the only Test against Ireland. Afghanistan depends heavily upon the key spinners. While Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi have retained their Test spot, Mujeeb Ur Rehman has been dropped from the red-ball format.


Led by William Porterfield, the Ireland side would be confident of turning their good form into a win against Afghanistan. Players like Kevin O’Brien, Paul Stirling and Andrew Balbirnie will have important roles to serve while George Dockrell will have the onus of spinning it away in Dehradun.

Neither of the wicket-keepers has made any such contribution which they can be proud of. But due to the experience and his first-class record, Mohammad Shahzad is our pick in this column. However, Stuart Poynter has talent and he may pull off a surprise performance in this game.

You may put your money on Hashmatullah Shahidi and Rahmat Shah, who known for their calmness with the bat. Kevin O’Brien and Andrew Balbirnie have performed well on this tour so far, so adding them is a no-brainer. One can also consider Paul Stirling, William Porterfield or Asghar Afghan as their batting alternatives.

Both the sides have quality all-rounders but George Dockrell and Mohammad Nabi are the ones who should be on demand consider their experience and performances in recent times.

Ireland’s pace attack is solid with Boyd Rankin and Tim Murtagh in the mix. Both of them are worth picks while you can’t just keep Rashid Khan away from the side. Zahir Khan could turn out to be another surprise package for the Irishmen.
