Afghanistan will look to continue their winning spree when they take on Ireland in the third and final Twenty20 International (T20I) on Sunday. Ireland, who was outplayed by Afghanistan in the last two games will be looking to make amends across departments to win the last match of the series.

The second match, which was affected by rain, saw Najeeb Tarakai's 58-ball 90, including seven fours and five sixes, to post an imposing 184/8 in 20 overs which proved too much for Ireland, who fell 17 runs short on Duckworth-Lewis (DLS) method in the chase.
