Afghanistan Beat Ireland By 30 Runs in First ODI

Afghanistan batted first and set an impressive target of 292-7 in 50 overs. Ramat Shah scored 78 and Noor Ali Zadran 51.

Afghanistan’s National Cricket has defeated Ireland by 30 runs in the first One-Day International (ODI) at Greater Noida in India on Wednesday.

Afghanistan batted first and set an impressive target of 292-7 in 50 overs. Ramat Shah scored 78 and Noor Ali Zadran 51.

A William Porterfield century was not enough to prevent Ireland losing the first of five one-day internationals against Afghanistan by 30 runs.

Despite a brave attempt, Ireland fell short with 262 all out in 46.5 overs.

Dawlat Zadran and Rashid Khan took four wickets apiece to help see the Afghans to victory.

“In Every series, the first game is very important. Porterfield and Stirling played very well. Credit goes to Rashid Khan and Dawlat Zadran and it proved to be a very good comeback. The old ball was good for reverse swing and Dawlat is an experienced bowler capable of reversing it. That's why the game opened up,” said Asghar Stanikzai, the National Cricket Team’s captain.

Ireland had already been whitewashed 3-0 in a Twenty20 series between the sides in India.

The teams will play four further one-day internationals, before meeting in an Intercontinental Cup match at the end of the month.
