Afghanistan clinches T20 series against Ireland

Afghanistan clinches T20 series against Ireland

Aug 23, 2018 - 11:57

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Afghanistaninfo-icon won three matches T20 series from Ireland by defeating the host in the second game by 81 runs.

a second consecutive fifty from Hazratullah Zazai helped the visitors mirror their total of 160 from the first match, before Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Rashid Khan broke the back of Ireland's chase to script a seventh straight T20I win for Afghanistan over them.

The win by 81 runs equalled Afghanistan's second-largest victory margin in the format, and rendered the final T20I of the series a dead rubber. It also meant Ireland were shot out for their fourth-lowest T20I total: 79.

Winning the toss, Afghanistan decided to bat first and scored 160 at the loss of seven wickets.

In reply, the Iresh side was off to a shaky start and lost wickets at regular intervals. Rashid Khan picked four wickets, Mujib Zadran picked 3 wickets, Farid Malak and Aftab took one each.
