The three-match ODI series between Afghanistan and Ireland is set to get underway on Thursday (March 7) in Sharjah. All the matches of the series, including the upcoming T20Is, are scheduled to take place in Sharjah only. The one-off Test that was played preceding to this series saw some riveting action over the course of three days and Ireland created history registering their first win in the Test format.

Come the ODI series, and Ireland will play under Paul Stirling as they will continue to make the tour memorable. But in ODIs, Afghanistan are a different force and will be confident after a brilliant show in the World Cup last year. They continue to miss Rashid Khan who is likely to be available for the T20Is for now but the team led by Hashmatullah Shahidi in the format has proven its mettle even without their talisman on multiple occasions now.

As far as the head to head record between the two teams in ODIs is concerned, Afghanistan have won 16 out of 30 matches played while Ireland have won 13 times.
