International Cricket Betting Tips & Predictions

Ireland v Afghanistan 2nd T20 Betting Tips & Predictions (Thursday 15:30 BST)

Ireland will be looking to take a 2-0 lead in their T20 series against Afghanistan at the Civil Service Cricket Club in Belfast on Thursday.

The visitors won the toss and opted to bat first. They managed to post 168 for the loss of seven wickets from their 20 overs.

Opener Usman Ghani top-scored with 59 runs from 42 balls with six fours and two sixes. Barry McCarthy was the pick of the bowlers for Ireland with figures of 3-34 off four overs.

In reply, Ireland got home with one ball to spare.

Captain Andrew Balbirnie top-scored with 51 and was backed up by Lorcan Tucker (50) to get the hosts home.

I was unsure if Ireland would be able to get up for matches against Afghanistan after recent matches against New Zealand and South Africa, but they did.

I expect the Irish to go 2-0 with another victory on Thursday. Paul Stirling hasn’t hit top form yet, so I am backing Tucker to show us again what he is capable of. He hit six fours and one maximum on Tuesday, so I feel he will go on and top score.

Opener Rahmanullah Gurbaz made a good start in the first game with 26 runs so I am backing him to kick on and make a decent score.
