    I reckon Afghanistan will dominate the ODI/T20 stuff then Ireland will crush the test.


    Should be an interesting set of games

    I expect Afghanistan to wipe the whole thing, conditions being in favour for their spin attack.

    Wow, so much cricket in Dehra Dun, could have used a few more venues.

    Ah fair call I didn't even look at the location.

    Ireland looked sooo much more test class in their first game though. Afghanistan batsmen just seemed to be lacking in FC experience, so many wild shots

    Will it, though? Dehra Dun is at an altitude and I don't expect March to be particularly hot.

    Could still produce a minefield pitch in a cool climate though right?

    I hope Afghanistan crush the ODI stuff then Ireland's odds balloon out for the test. Ill put a bet on and watch Shahzad and co try and hit everything for six

    Unless subcontintenal pitch preparation has changed I'd still expect it to be relatively bare, like Dharmasala has been even at cooler times.

    Is 700m really altitude?

    Rashid ripped through Bangladesh here but tbf he doesn't really need that assisting pitches to wreck T20 stuff

    I think Ireland will struggle for penetration with the ball in the Test. Somebody like Tim Murtagh is unlikely to thrive in the sort of conditions that are expected, and Rankin will probably break himself within 5 or 6 overs

    That's the other thing, Ireland's attack is rather non-threatening pace wise and I suspect they'll also continue to be idiots by omitting McCarthy. Otoh it seems all the Afghanistan names I know are injured or otherwise absent and idk if they've found anything other than a surname for Wafadar.

    I just hope it isn't a draw. If two teams with no test wins are to face each other, one of them may as well get their first win.
