India vs Ireland LIVE Streaming Online: Team India is all set to spend a long summer in the United Kingdom as they gear up for the first match against Ireland ahead of England tour.
India vs Ireland LIVE Streaming Online: Team India are all set to take on Ireland in the first of the two-match T20 series ahead of the upcoming England tour. The first T20I will set the stage for a long summer for Virat Kohli and side in the United Kingdom. The team arrived in Ireland last week and attended its first training session at the Merchants Taylor School cricket ground. As always, the Indian selection committee will face a tough task of whom to play in the playing XI with Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, and Virat Kohli taking the top four spots.
Ambati Rayudu’s failure to clear the Yo-Yo Test gave a second life to his Chennai Super Kings teammate Suresh Raina who will fight for the number 4 position with an in-form KL Rahul. Mahendra Singh Dhoni at 5 and Dinesh Karthik at 6 will provide India with the required finishing touches. Hardik Pandya will fill in the all-rounder’s slot.
On the bowling front, Kohli would be tempted to field both leg-spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav, giving them an early taste of conditions. Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar will complete the pace-attack leaving Umesh Yadav and Siddarth Kaul on the bench.
Overall, India and Ireland have played only four times, in three ODIs (the other two during 2011 and 2015 ODI World Cups) and a T20I in 2009 during the World T20 in England. India had won that game at Nottingham by eight wickets with Rohit scoring an unbeaten half-century. Dhoni and Raina are the other ‘current’ members from that playing eleven nine years ago.
