The crucial three-match ODI series between Afghanistan and Ireland will begin on Thursday (21st January). On Thursday, they will play the first match of this ODI series at Sheikh Zayed Stadium (Abu Dhabi).

This ODI series will also be a part of the 2020–23 ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League, which provides the seven direct qualifications (excluding the hosts India – already qualified as the hosts) for the next ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023. While Afghanistan will begin their journey in this inaugural World Cup Super League with this ODI series opener, it will be Ireland’s second ODI series in this competition.

On the other hand, Afghanistan and Ireland will meet for the first time in international cricket since March 2020, which was also Afghanistan’s last international match before COVID-19 pandemic, which forced to cancel many of their international cricket schedules.
