India are all set to take on Ireland in the 1st T20I at Malahide before heading to the long England tour. This is also India’s 100th T20I match. The last time these two teams faced each other was in 2009 World T20 where India had defeated them easily by 8 wickets. The match will start at 8.30 PM according to Indian Standard Time (IST) and the live telecast of the match will be available on Sony Six and Sony Six HD. The live streaming if the match will be available on Sony Liv.

Virat Kohli who will be seen in action after a long time is only 17 runs away from becoming the first Indian player to complete 2,000 T20I runs. India will take the T20Is as an advantage to get used to the conditions as they will be similar to England. Ireland, who recently had a decent Test debut will give their all against India.
