Afghanistan go into this game without a win after suffering a defeat against England in their opening game before their fixture against New Zealand was washed out. Ireland, however, go in with one win from two. They were thrashed by nine wickets when they came up against Sri Lanka, but produced one of their all-time great performances to defeat tournament favourites England at the MCG.
These two sides recently went head-to-head in a five-match T20I series in August that was played in Ireland. A series that Ireland won 3-2.
Group 1 is incredibly close with no team with two wins from two. A defeat here for either team will all but end their chances of semi-final qualification.
