Afghanistan won the toss and opted to bat first. The visitors had a decent start but lost both their openers before reaching 100. Usman Ghani was the star player for Afghanistan after scoring a fine fifty. However, Ireland made a comeback into the game by scalping 5 quick wickets. Ibrahim Zadran scored a quick firing 27-run knock to help Afghanistan register a decent score to chase.

Ireland began their run chase on a fine note. Paul Stirling scored 31 while skipper Andy Balbirnie scored a magnificent fifty. Balbirnie was then joined by keeper Lorcan Tucker who accompanied yet another fifty to pile heavy pressure on the visitors and kept the run chase under their belt. Harry Tector and Geroge Dockrell applied the finishing touches to the run chase to seal the tie as Ireland won the first t20I game of the year.
