KABUL (Pajhwok): Already one up in the three-match One-Day International (ODI) series, Afghanistan are all poised to take on Ireland in the second encounter in the UAE today (Sunday).

Afghanistan, having outplayed the rivals by 16 runs in the opener on Thursday, are eyeing a series win. Ireland, on the other hand, are looking to level the series.

With no changes expected in the national squad, the Afghans middle order will focus on enhanced strength to ensure sealing the series.

Following Thursday’s loss, Ireland will have to keep the Afghan batsmen in check. In the first ODI, ace spinner Rashid Khan punished the Irish bowler and helped Afghanistan set the opposition a formidable target.
