AFG vs IRE 3rd ODI Weather & Pitch Report
It will be a sunny day in Abu Dhabi. The temperature will hover around 17 to 24 degree Celsius. Fans can enjoy the complete game without interruptions as the chance of rainfall are nil.
As we have seen in the previous two games, the pitch has something in it to interest both pacers and spinners.
Nevertheless, the batsmen will have to bide their time in the middle before going big, and wickets in hand are going to be key. The pitch should get slower as the game progresses, which might tempt either side to bat first after winning the toss.
270 runs should be a good total at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium.
Average First Inning Score
The average first inning score at this venue is 262.
