India outplayed again on Friday to win the series by 2-0 against Ireland on Friday.
KL Rahul flaunted his master class with Suresh Raina before giving the command to the Indian bowlers for dismantling the hosts on 70- all out.
It was India’s biggest T20 win ever as they crushed the hosts by 143 runs.
India skipper Virat Kohli hailed his team’s performance asserting that it was just the right kind of preparation India needed ahead of their England series.
“It was just the kind of momentum we needed for England. We gave a balanced performance in both the games,” he said.
“I am now having a headache now about whom to pick, all of them have done so well with the bat, it is very difficult for me to decide. But it is a good problem to have,” he added at the post-match presentation.
“I am happy to see the youngsters taking their chances with both their hands. We do not focus on our opponents, England is going to be the same for us. We focus on our strength,” he added.
Talking about England, he said, “England are a quality side but we have the potential to match them. All the guys are working hard. I will give the credit to the players for taking responsibility. It takes pressure off me and the team management.”
