IRE vs IND 1st T20I Updates:

Highlights IRE vs IND Updates: So that’s the end of the game. It was not much of a contest as India outplayed Ireland in all departments. However, fans will be happy that they at least got a game to watch, which at one point looked impossible to start due to rain.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Yuzvendra Chahal were sensational with the ball and bowled at an economy of less than 6. India was all over Ireland in the powerplay but a blistering 50 by Harry Tector helped Ireland to a competitive 108. However, given the quality of the Indian batting, this was very hard to defend. Barring Surya, all other batters made vital contributions as India cruised to a win. The next game is on the 28th June and Ireland has a lot to work out before the game.

A great recovery by Ireland after being blown away by Indian pacers early on. Harry Tector was sensational and played a pivotal role in taking Ireland to 108-4. For India, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Yuzvendra Chahal were absolutely sensational. Both gave runs at less than 6 runs per over.

The wicket is good and the ball is flying off the bat. Should be an easy chase for India. Stay tuned for updates.

Hello and Welcome to the live coverage of the first T20I between Ireland and India. Ireland has never beaten India in a T20I game and they would believe that playing against an inexperienced Indian team is their best opportunity. However, this second-string Indian team is also a formidable unit and can test the best teams in the world.

The series is very important for a few players, especially Ruturaj Gaikwad and Sanju Samson, who have failed to live up to the expectations so far. A good series here will get them back into the reckoning of the selectors for the world cup squad. All eyes will be on Suryakumar Yadav as well, who is returning from an injury. The likes of Umran Malik, Arshdeep Singh and Rahul Tripathi will also be hopeful of getting their debut cap in the series.

Last but not the least, Hardik Pandya will make his India captaincy debut in the series. He did splendidly well for Gujarat Titans in the IPL 2022 and if he can get the same results in  the Indian colours, he could well be in contention for becoming the permanent India captain in T20Is after Rohit Sharma.

Coming back to the hosts, they have not enjoyed great outings against India. However, they have a few good players who can spring in a surprise. The likes of Paul Stirling, Andrew Balbirnie and Harry Tector are some reputed T20 players thus the match will not  be a walkover for the Men in Blue by any means.

IND Probable XI: Ishan Kishan (wk), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Suryakumar Yadav, Sanju Samson. Hardik Pandya (c), Dinesh Karthik, Axar Patel, Harshal Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Avesh Khan/Arshdeep Singh/Umran Malik, Yuzvendra Chahal

IRE Probable XI: Paul Stirling, Andrew Balbirnie (c), Gareth Delany, Harry Tector, Lorcan Tucker (wk), Curtis Campher, Andy McBrine, George Dockrell, Mark Adair, Barry McCarthy, Joshua Little
