Afghanistan will lock horn with Ireland in the 4th ODI on Friday. After trailing by 1-0, Ireland levelled the series 1-1 and they created a chance to go one-up in the ODI series for the first time. Afghan bowlers did not bowl well in last match by looking at their standard and most importantly their two prime spinners did not has a great outing managed to pick only two wickets, rest all bowlers were smashed for the runs. With the lack of par-score on the board, Afghanistan lost their first match in this tour.
On the other hand, the visitors may have won their last match, but couldn't produce any promising performance from Irish batsmen except Andrew Balbirnie and George Dockrell who played a match winning knock of 145 and 54 respectively. Still with the lack of wicket taking ability in regular intervals Irish bowlers need to step up to get a lead in this series. Andrew Balbirnie, William Porterfield, Paul Stirling and Kevin O'Brien will have important roles to play to gain a heads up in this ODI series.
Wicket-keeper: Mohammad Shahzad (9 credits)
Shahzad who is best known for hard hitting, but still his bat has been quite in this series. The wicket-keeper batsman cannot keep himself quite for a long time, he might be frustrated and will be eager to score a big. As world cup is up this match might be the great opportunity to showcase his hitting ability by scoring big. Shahzad
