The third T20 International between Ireland (IRE) and Afghanistan (AFG) will be played at Stormont in Belfast on Friday, August 12. The match will start at 8:00 PM IST.

IRE vs AFG Dream11 prediction

The Ireland cricket team has taken a 1-0 lead in the five-match series, with Andy Balbirnie (51 off 38 balls) and George Dockrell (2/7) playing key roles in the seven-wicket victory in the series opener.

The result meant Ireland picked up their first win against Afghanistan since 2013.

Meanwhile, the Afghanistan cricket team will look to return to winning ways after they slumped to their second T20I defeat in 2022.

With a strong head-to-head record against Ireland (14 wins in 19 matches), Afghanistan are fancied to triumph in the third T20 and regain a lead in the five-game series.

IRE vs AFG Dream11 team tips for the 3rd T20

Top tip: Best batter

 Ireland’s Paul Stirling will hope to inspire Ireland’s batting attack in the third T20I. The opening batter, with 574 runs in 18 matches against the Afghans, got a score of 31 runs in the first match. Stirling is available for 9.0 credits.

Top tip: Best bowler

Despite a disappointing outing in the first T20I, Rashid Khan must be included in fantasy cricket teams as the top bowler. The 23-year-old has 109 wickets in T20Is at an average of only 13.23 in 62 games. At 9.5 credits, Rashid’s match-winning spells will be a threat to Irish batters.

Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper

Mohammad Nabi is arguably the best all-rounder to consider for the fixture. The Afghanistan captain has scored 404 runs and taken 16 wickets in 19 outings against the Irish and took the prized scalp of Paul Stirling in the series opener. He is available to fantasy players at 9.0 credits.

For a wicket-keeper, Ireland’s Lorcan Tucker is our recommendation. The 25-year-old - who hit a half-century in the first T20I - has now recorded 595 runs and 33 dismissals in his career. Priced at 8.5 credits, Tucker is a top buy and could get you maximum points.   

IRE vs AFG probable playing XI

IRE playing XI (probable): Paul Stirling, Andrew Balbirnie (captain), Gareth Delany, Harry Tector, Curtis Campher, Lorcan Tucker (wicket-keeper), George Dockrell, Mark Adair, Barry McCarthy, Craig Young, Joshua Little

AFG playing XI (probable): Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wicket-keeper), Hazratullah Zazai, Usman Ghani, Darwish Rasooli, Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi (captain), Azmatullah Omarzai, Rashid Khan, Karim Janat, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Nijat Masood
