Afghanistan vs Ireland, Only Test -

START TIME9:30 AM4:00 AM GMT9:30

Preview

Boyd Rankin knows what's it like to play in an Ashes Test in front of a packed stadium. He's felt the sinking feeling after a massive Test defeat. Kevin O'Brien knows what's it like score a Test century. He's been in that moment where his efforts over five days haven't been enough to prevent a loss, despite his side doing everything they could. Rashid Khan, the champion bowler in limited-overs cricket, realises Test cricket can be unforgiving. Mohammad Nabi understands the pain of a Test duck.

Players from both Ireland and Afghanistan have gone through the grind of Test cricket. Ireland went through the ebbs and flows of the longest format, kept Pakistan in check for a while before it all came crashing down on the final day. Afghanistan were handed some harsh lessons from India as their Test jamboree lasted only two days. Both sides have had time to reflect on their defeats and work on their errors. When the players walk on the opening day of the one-off Test in Dehradun, only a win will soothe the pain they had to go through in their maiden Test.

As the cricket world is getting used to teams winning away, Ireland come into the game with a massive opportunity to make a statement. Afghanistan have several things favouring them and a win for Ireland will go a long way in ensuring Test cricket too becomes a priority for the generations to follow. If they go on to win in Dehradun, it'll be considered the starting point where their Test history started taking shape.

Afghanistan are a mean machine in Indian conditions. The visitors found that out in the T20I series but their series-levelling effort in the ODIs should hold them in good stead. The usual suspects are again likely to haunt Ireland and the one-off Test will be a thorough Test of their temperament. If Ireland can find a way to keep Rashid at bay, they could find themselves in a position to dominate.

While bowling is certainly Afghanistan's stronger suit, their batting could well be their Achilles heel. The onus will be on the batsmen to give the bowlers the much-needed cushion of runs before the spinners can come into their own. On the batting front, Asghar Afghan and Mohammad Nabi will hold the key for the hosts as the contest could well be about Afghanistan's spinners vs the Irish batsmen. They also have two surprise packages in Waqar Salamkheil and Zahir Khan. The left-arm wrist spin duo have a fantastic record in first-class cricket - averaging 21.46 and 13.14 - with 56 wickets (in seven games) and 34 wickets (in seven games) in their bags respectively.

The challenge for both Ireland and Afghanistan will how well they adapt to the demands of Test cricket. It will not only be the test of their skills but it'll also be about how much they can exert themselves when things aren't favouring them. Two hungry sides with a chance to make history will take the field. It'll all boil down to how good are the players at shutting down the noise and enjoying the pounding of the 'greatest all-round challenge in modern sport'.

What to expect: The forecast for the Test is extremely promising with all five days expected to have clear weather. Bowlers will have a big say in the contest with both pacers and spinners coming into the picture.

Team news:

Afghanistan: The first dilemma in front of the hosts will be of their spin combination. The selectors have decided to drop Mujeeb ur Rahman and make the late inclusion of Zahir. While Nabi and Rashid - the two frontline spin options - are certain starters, the toss up will be between Salamkheil and Zahir.

Ireland: George Dockrell and Simi Singh, with some support from Paul Stirling, are expected to be Ireland's spin options with the onus of scoring runs on the likes of William Porterfield, Andrew Balbirnie and O'Brien.

What they said:

"It is a moment of pride that Afghanistan hosts its first Test match and it carries a lot of meaning for us. Although, we lost our inaugural Test match to India last year but we will aim to play in the upcoming Test match with full strength" - Asghar Afghan

"It will be completely different conditions [in the Test match] - our first Test match against Pakistan was a home game in Malahide in May whereas we are in Dehradun here in India in March. We will see how the pitch is in the next couple of days and expect it not to be very different" - William Porterfield
Teams:
Afghanistan (From): Mohammad Shahzad(w), Javed Ahmadi, Rahmat Shah, Hashmatullah Shahidi, Asghar Afghan(c), Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Yamin Ahmadzai, Ihsanullah Janat, Sharafuddin Ashraf, Nasir Jamal, Ikram Ali Khil, Wafadar Momand, Waqar Salamkheil, Sayed Shirzad, Zahir Khan

Ireland (From): William Porterfield(c), Paul Stirling, Andrew Balbirnie, Simi Singh, Kevin O Brien, Stuart Poynter(w), Lorcan Tucker, George Dockrell, James McCollum, Andy McBrine, James Cameron-Dow, Tim Murtagh, Boyd Rankin, Barry McCarthy, Stuart Thompson

Eh... who wrote this?? Obviously someone who hasn't been paying attention on this tour so far.

Andy McBrine and James Cameron-Dow will be the main spinners with Dockrell in support. Singh might actually be dropped in favour of an extra batsman (McCollum). Stirling has only bowled one over on the whole tour - which went for 24 runs. I think he'll stick to the batting..

I trust Dockrell more than Indian middle order batting

http://stats.espncricinfo.com/wi/conten ... 82860.html

Lovely last wicket stand of 87
Dockrell (39) bats so many balls.37 year Murtagh 53 not out

Ireland who lost 9 for 48 during mid overs reached 172
42 more than vs Pakistan

Murtagh #9 in the list with 54* but other 10 in front of him.Tino best 95 but I think Agar 98 was more iconic
Koz in his debut test he did that -sorry he not help his side win but they lost by 6 runs or so.

player with test 50* _ congratulation

I think D.Amiss was first player in ODI with 100.
Aus's Bannerman (165) was 1st with test century
In test cricket format or first AUS with test 100.

Rahmat with first fifty for Afghanistan. Hashmat follows him with the second fifty for Afghanistan.
Things looking good with lead 8 runs and with 8 wickets in hand.

Regardless of format, Ireland 80% poor performer in India-Unless they hammers 330+ in the second Innings ( They did vs Pak in Inaugural test) this match will be one sided.New ball due in 54 balls.Afg lead now 26

Well it helped. We still need to bat for tomorrow and part of Monday to have any chance though and we're already one down. Porterfield (again...)

ireland suffered mainly when Joyce and ?
suddenly retired.3 nation coming up involving
ireland/Bangers and Windies.i wish Porterfield
bounce back at home alone with simi singh.Both have so far ordinary series.

simi was regular member in multiday game with his All rounder skills.

Ireland bowling too good yesterday - took last 7 w for 88.If Asghar not score those 67 they not gained 142 runs lead.Ireland must need partnership between each wicket

I think Simi will struggle to get game time this summer. We have two specialist batsmen, Gary Wilson and James Shannon to return from injury. No need for too many spinners in Irish conditions. This was supposed to be the tour where he established himself but it went badly wrong for him.

GARY WILSON I am familiar with but James McCollum 2 innings in int'L cricket were poor.

James shannon?

Both gone now after putting on a 100 stand. O'Brien and Poynter in the middle now. At least Afghanistan will have to bat again :D

Poynter gets off the dreaded pair. He will be delighted to see the back of Rashid

Edit: but then he gets out to Salakheil. Its all coming apart now

Again, slow bowling around the wicket sends Thompson on his way

124/2
157/6

kevin O'Brien {38*) will be key

17 year Waqar Khil impressive with 4 wickets but
what a partnership ! between Balbirnie (82) and
James McCullum{39) --put on 100 odd(.jm scored 442 in 4 games in 2018 domestic )


@chance missed by Shahidi

wafadar and Nabi toothless.
