Afghanistan vs Ireland 1st T20 Highlights – Aug 20, 2018

Ire v Afg highlights today – first twenty/20 from Bready Cricket Club, Magheramason, Bready (Ireland) Monday 20th August 2018. Afghanistan 160 for 7 (Hazratullah Zazai 74, Asghar Afghan 31, Mohammad Shahzad 29, Joshua Little 2-20) beat Ireland 144 for 9 (Paul Stirling 27, Gary Wilson 34, Rashid Khan 3-35, Mujeeb Ur Rahman 2-14, Fareed Ahmad 2-29) by 16 runs.

Two young men who had played a combined three T20Is before Monday’s contest between Ireland and Afghanistan at Bready served notice of potentially bright futures. Hazratullah Zazai’s 33-ball 74 had turbo-charged Afghanistan before Joshua Little’s 2 for 20 in four overs reined them in. but the visiting team’s 160 for 7 in a rain-shortened match still proved too many for Ireland.

Toss: Ireland , elected to field first.
