In the second T20I match of the three-match series, India will take on Ireland at the Malahide Cricket Club Ground or the Village in Dublin tomorrow, i.e., August 20 at 7:30 PM IST.
The Indian side will be looking to test their batters in tomorrow’s match after the game got washed up in the first T20I just around the seventh over. With Yashasvi Jaiswal and Ruturaj Gaikwad playing their part in the last match, all eyes will be on the likes of Sanju Samson, Tilak Varma, Shivam Dube and Rinku Singh. On the other hand, bowlers will once again like to dominate and restrict the Irish side for a below-par score. Skipper Jasprit Bumrah, Prasidh Krishna, Ravi Bishnoi and Arshdeep Singh will be on their toes and strike the batters down.
After the unfortunate loss in the first match, the home side has the final opportunity to make things right and equalize the score at 1-1. The batters, which consist of some quality names such as Andrew Balbirnie, Lorcan Tucker, Harry Tector, and Curtis Campher, need to step up and deliver the same performance as they did in the T20 World Cup 2024 qualifiers. With the ball as well, Craig Young did well for the Men in Green but would require more help from others.
India and Ireland have played six T20Is against each other, with the Men in Blue winning all of them.
