India tour of England & Ireland, 2018

IRE vs IND 2nd T20| Ireland vs India WHO WILL WIN

In the Spotlight

India started their three-month-long tour of England, Ireland & Wales with a comfortable 76-run win over hosts Ireland on Wednesday night.

It was a historic occasion for India, who were competing in their 100th T20I, a journey that dates back to December 2006 (vs South Africa at the Wanderers), and the duo of Sharma (97) Dhawan (74) celebrated it with a 160-run opening stand.
Sharma, who missed his third T20I hundred by three runs, became the first player to be involved in three 150 plus partnerships, as India strolled their way to 5-208 in 20 overs.

Venue:- The Village, Malahide, Dublin

Timing:- Friday, June 29th, 2018, 08:30 PM IST

Chasing 209, Ireland got off to an abysmal start with Paul Stirling in an attempt to hook a Jasprit Bumrah delivery, holed out to Kuldeep Yadav at mid-off. Shannon blazed away with a 35-ball-60, but as soon as the ball started gripping, the wheel started coming off, as the duo of Yadav (4-21) and Chahal (3-38) ran through the Irish batting unit, to inflict a chastening defeat on the hosts. The second T20 will offer a chance for the hosts to put an improved performance, while India would like to settle their middle-order puzzle ahead of the impending England series.
