Afghanistan who lost their previous Test against Sri Lanka are set to play five more Test matches this year after the one against Ireland. 

Ireland will be led by Andrew Balbirnie who is their Test captain. Paul Stirling is their white-ball skipper. Ireland have a few newcomers to their Test side.

These are the players who play across formats for the national team.
