PREVIEW

This series will be a good opportunity for Irish players to showcase their talent against one of the best sides in the world, “India”. While India will look to experiment and hand debuts to youngsters who have been waiting on the sidelines for some time.

*Suryakumar Yadav will be making his comeback after an injury and would walk in the playing XI directly.

*Hardik will be leading the side in the absence of many senior players on the team.

MATCH TIME AND BROADCAST-

PITCH REPORT-

The pitch will be a sporty one. There will be something for both batters and bowlers. The ball is likely to swing early on as it always does in European countries. However, the bounce will be decent with the bowl coming onto the bat nicely. Teams might look to play an extra seamer. 

TOSS-

The team winning the toss will look to bowl first. Out of 18 T20Is played here, 11 were won by the side batting second.

FANTASY TIPS FOR IND VS IRE 1ST T20I-

MUST HAVE PLAYERS IN YOUR TEAM-

  • ISHAN KISHAN- Ishan looked in great touch in the South Africa series. He would be aiming to carry on his form and can be deadly at the top.
  • BHUVNESHWAR KUMAR- Bhuvi will swing the ball and can take a couple of wickets in the first few overs.
  • CURTIS CAMPHER- Curtis plays as an all-rounder in the Irish team and has done well in recent matches. He bowls 4 overs and can be handy with the bat.
  • PAUL STIRLING- Stirling has been playing leagues all around the world and is a T20 legend. He has played a lot of matches for Ireland and done well opening the batting.

CAPTAINCY PICKS-

YUZI CHAHAL, BHUVNESHWAR KUMAR, AND HARSHAL PATEL

VICE-CAPTAINCY PICKS-

ISHAN KISHAN, ANDREW BALBIRNIE, AND CURTIS CAMPHER

Well, the match is likely to be a cakewalk for India however India should not take the Irish lightly as they have defeated England last to last year with pretty much the same bunch of players. If Ireland wins the toss, the match could turn out to be a fair contest.
