India vs Ireland: Virat Kohli will look to start English summer with a bang

Kohli and Co. gear up for Ireland T20Is

The venue of the match is at The Village, Dublin. Openers Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan put a great 1st wicket partnership.

It will be interesting to see whom among the trio of Suresh Raina, Dinesh Karthik and Manish Pandey get a game with Dhoni and all-rounder Hardik Pandya filling up the No.6 and 7 spots. As part of the full-strength Indian side, the three had featured in the T20 series against South Africa.

Going into the second match, Kohli had hinted at making a few changes in the middle order to give everyone game-time so they could acclimatise to the conditions.

Ireland will return to action in August when they host Afghanistan in three T20Is and three ODIs in August, with India now off to Old Trafford for Tuesday's first Twenty20 worldwide against England, live on Sky Sports Cricket (channel 404) and Sky Sports Main Event (401) from 5pm. Siddharth Kaul was in the Indian squad for the home ODIs against Sri Lanka in December, but was not picked ahead of Kumar-Bumrah. Both the teams have made some changes in the playing XI. However, Rohit missed a well-deserved century.


India - who will now head off to England for three T20Is, three ODIs and five Tests - topped 200 back-to-back for the first time in the format after following Wednesday's 208-5 with 213-4 and then skittled Ireland for just 70 in 12.3 overs to earn the joint-second biggest win in the history of T20Is. Dhoni and Raina are the other current' members from that playing eleven nine years ago.

India take on Ireland in a two-match T20I series at the Malahide Cricket Ground Club in the lead-up to the much-anticipated full tour against England next month.

Rahul is expected to walk into the side after his performances in the recently-concluded Indian Premier League (IPL) season with Kings XI Punjab.

Ireland replaced Stuart Poynter with William Porterfield to strengthen the batting with skipper Gary Wilson taking over the wicket-keeping duties but at halfway it looked mission impossible for their hopes of squaring the series.
