Ireland will take on one of the mighty forces in the T20 cricket, India today at the Malahide Stadium. India will look to test its bench strength today and also, this match will be crucial for players like Rohit Sharma who will be looking to get back to the scoring ways and for Virat Kohli, who will be playing his first match after the injury will be keen to get used to the conditions as well.
Ireland is coming from defeat in the tri-series whereas, India won their last Test- the historic Test against Afghanistan.
Ireland’s team has nothing to lose here, and their batsmen are in a decent form as well. Who knows, they can provide a surprise like how Scotland defeated England.
Here are the players to watch out for today:
Paul Stirling: Of course, Stirling is the best pick from Ireland. In the recent times, he is good with the ball as well.
A Balbirnie: One of the top performers from the tri-series, Balbirnie will look to continue his good form.
Rohit Sharma: The Indian opener will look to start the tour well. He desperately in need a good knock to bounce back.
Virat Kohli: An obvious choice. Kohli will play his first match after a long time. It will be important that he smashes a few today.
