The whole performance of the Afghan team during the 3rd T20I match is far better than their performance during the first two T20I matches. Everything looks better for Afghanistan, especially in the area of bowling. Even the batters played very well this time around as they posted a total of 189/5 in their 20 overs. Their comeback on their last match posted new hope for their fans. If this squad will continuously excel in batting and bowling, they can definitely tie the series.

It was Rahmanullah Gurbaz who top scored for the Afghans with 53 runs. The team also received help from Najibullah Zadran, Ibrahim Zadran, and Hazratullah Zazai. All in all, everyone did their part to give keep their squad alive in this series.

The main reason why Ireland lost in this game is because their batters and bowlers are not in their best condition. They had a bad game, giving a chance to the opponent to take home the victory on their last outing. However, if Ireland’s bowlers and batters were able to get back on track, they can win the game. But it will now be tougher for this team as their opponent have slowly got their rhythm.

George Dockrell leads the scoring for his team with 58 runs in 37 deliveries. He also gained help from Lorcan Tucker, and Fionn Hand, who contributed 31 and 36 runs apiece. This squad needs to make some adjustments if they want to win this match and this series.

These two squads will have their 4th T20I match on August 15, 2022, 10:00 PM (GMT+8).
