IND vs IRE 2nd T20I in Malahide: Weather Forecast
Malahide: Hardik Pandya will lead the Indian cricket team against Ireland in the second and final T20I match of the series at the Malahide Cricket Club on Tuesday. The visitors will be hoping to win the series and finish the tour on a high.
The visitors comfortably won the first game of the two-match series by 7 wickets and will look to clinch the series with a win in the second match against lower-ranked Ireland.
With the victory in the last match, India now has won all four T20I matches against Ireland. They are on the verge of being unbeaten in the T20I series for the fifth time. They have won 9 out of 11 T20Is played this year. On the other hand, Ireland has 5 victories and 4 losses in 9 T20Is played this year.
The rain heavily affected the first match and the weather is again going to play an important factor in the second match as well. There are predictions of rain and in all probability, it would once again be a stop-start and a truncated game. Surely not the best piece of news for fans who would be hoping for a 40-over game. The temperature will range between 11 and 19°C. The wind will be flowing from the southwest at 25-33 km/h. There are 77-83 per cent chances of rainfall.
