Ireland packed its playing XI with spinners, giving Andy McBrine, Goerge Dockrell and James Cameron-Dow test debuts.

Wicketkeeper-batsman Stuart Poytner and James McCollum were also awarded test caps as Ireland made five changes from the lineup which played country's first ever test at home.

There were three test newcomers for Afghanistan with young batsmen Ihsanullah Janat and Ikram Ali Khil along with fast bowler Waqar Salamkheil all getting their caps.

Captain Asghar Afghan, Hashmatullah Shahidi and hard-hitting opening batsman Mohammad Shahzad will form the nucleus of Afghanistan's batting.

But Ireland's batsmen will be tested against Afghanistan's two most accomplished spinners Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi.

Lineups:

Ireland: William Porterfield (captain), Paul Stirling, Andy Balbirnie, James McCollum, Kevin O'Brien, Stuart Poynter (wk), Andy McBrine, Tim Murtagh, James Cameron-Dow, George Dockrell, Stuart Thompson

Afghanistan: Asghar Afghan (captain), Mohammad Shahzad, Ihsanullah Janat, Rahmat Shah, Hashmatullah Shahidi, Ikram Ali Khil (wk), Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Wafadar Momand, Yamin Ahmadzai, Waqar Salamkheil.
