A day before their three-match Twenty20 series kicks off in Dehradun, Ireland skipper Paul Stirling has made it clear that there's more to the Afghanistan team than just Rashid Khan.

"(Rashid Khan) has been the main difference between the two sides in the recent past.

The Afghans were reduced to 50-5 but an 86-run partnership by Mohammad Nabi and Najibullah Zadran sealed victory.

In their last encounter when Ireland hosted Afghanistan, the visitors won both the T20 series as well as the ODIs.

Left fielder Eddie Rosario was the team MVP last year, and right fielder Max Kepler just got a $35 million, five-year contract. After posting a.660 OPS through July, Gonzalez registered an.875 OPS from August on, the third-best mark on the team.

The 34-year-old Nabi, who was named man of the match, hit five fours and a six in his 40-ball knock while Zadran also took the attack to the opposition bowlers on a seemingly tricky wicket.

Earlier, Ireland's decision to elect to bat first proved to be a wrong one after they lost quick wickets early on.

After being in trouble at 65-6 in the 12th over, George Dockrell's career-best 34 not out and Stuart Poynter's unbeaten 31 helped Ireland post 132-6. It will be Ireland's first overseas Test match, and the second for the two newest teams at the highest level. Samiullah Shinwari and Sharafuddin Ashraf were the next two players to depart as Afghanistan went five wickets down. Nabi returned an impressive 2-16 in four overs of off-spin.
