Group 1 action of the Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 resumes as Afghanistan lock horns with Ireland at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in match 13 of the Super 12 stage. The Afghans got their first points of the tournament due to a washout against New Zealand on Wednesday. They will be hoping to add a couple of points more to their tally with a win against Ireland. Afghanistan have played just one T20I in Australia and, as a result, lack experience of playing in these conditions. Afghanistan's opponents, Ireland, come into this game on the back of a 5-run victory (DLS) against England. Ireland will be hoping to carry that momentum into this game and make it two wins on the trot. As compared to their opponents, Ireland have played eight T20Is in Australia and won five of those. This will be the twenty-fourth meeting between both sides in Men’s T20Is. The Afghans have won on most occasions, but the Irish have had an upper hand in the recent past, with them winning three out of the last five T20Is. Will it be Afghanistan to secure their first victory of the tournament or will it be Ireland to get another win under their belt? We shall learn soon.
