But all the controversy surrounding it was squashed by the duo of Rohit (97) and Shikhar (74), who piled up 160 runs for the opening wicket. India eventually posted 5-208 in 20 overs. For the Irish, the chase was never really on, once the ball started gripping, as the duo of Kuldeep Yadav (4-21) and Chahal (3-38) ran through the hosts batting order to script a comfortable 76-run win.
