IRE vs AFG Prediction - Aug 11, 2022

Ireland won the first T20 international against Afghanistan and would be keen to build on that success. Afghanistan looked a bit rusty and seemed to be found lacking in foreign conditions. They are a better team than what we saw and that loss would have hurt them.

We thought that the odds being offered on Ireland in the first match were a bit outlandish and we took the opportunity of that gap in the market. The cricket betting sites are still offering attractive odds on Ireland to win this match. Does it still make sense to bet on the underdog?

Match prediction and cricket betting tips for Ireland vs Afghanistan 2nd T20 2022. The match is going to be played at the Civil Service Cricket Club, Belfast on the 11th of August 2022.

IRE vs AFG Team Previews


Ireland has been doing quite well in T20 cricket and had come close to victories against India and South Africa. It will be interesting to see if Ireland changes its approach now that it is ahead in the tournament.

Ireland's batting was incredible and almost all the top order got runs. The way that they negotiated the spinners was encouraging and leads us to believe that Ireland is capable of scoring enough runs to win once more.

Among the bowlers, Little and McCarthy seemed to have the most impact in the match. We also like Mar Adair and George Dockrell. This Ireland bowling lineup is quite good in home conditions and will pose problems to Afghanistan once more.

Afghanistan has been used to dominating Ireland in recent years, especially in T20 cricket. What we saw in the first match, though, showed that the gap has reduced significantly. Afghanistan's biggest strength is its spin bowling unit and they do not have the ideal conditions to cause damage.

Also, their fast bowling attack is weak and they always seem to go for runs.

Perhaps equally concerning is the Afghanistan batting lineup. Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Usman Ghani, Hashmatullah Shahidi, Najibullah Zadran, and Mohammad Nabi are not going to scare the Irish bowlers. These batters struggle in conditions where the ball moves a little and there is always a chance of a collapse.

It is not impossible for Afghanistan to win but we can see no justification for the short odds being offered for it to win.

Pitch and Conditions

There is some rain around but for the most part, we should have good conditions for cricket. The pitch was good for batting in the previous match with a bit of help for the fast bowlers. We saw a bit of grass being left on the surface and that is likely to counter the spin bowling threat from Afghanistan.

A similar sort of surface is likely for this next match as well.

IRE vs AFG Betting Tips

We are going to bet on Ireland to win. The difference between Ireland and Afghanistan as T20 teams is not much. We don't think the odds accurately reflect that and that is why betting on Ireland is the only way to justify the risk. You will also get a chance to hedge if you bet on Ireland.

Bet on Ireland to win.
