Ireland hammered by India in Malahide

Posted June 30, 2018

In the build-up to the match, Kohli said that they will experiment and there were signs of that in the first game.

India left for Dublin on Tuesday after having a practice session in London on Monday.

While Rahul has been a constant part of the T20I squad, Ajinkya Rahane's omission from the ODI squad means that he is once again a contender for the number four spot when the three-match series against England begins on July 12. He was dismissed by Peter Chase when he mistimed a pull shot.

India met Ireland in a T20 match in 2009 and registered a win by eight wickets. In the first match, India has won against Ireland by 76 runs. After the opening partnership of Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan, Ireland bowlers did well to claw back. Virat Kohli's side were given the ideal preparation for more onerous tasks later on their tour when they made the most of warm conditions to post 208 for five off their 20 overs in the first of the two-match series.

The big question is of the bench strength and chances for the likes of Lokesh Rahul, Dinesh Karthik and Umesh Yadav. Destructive T20 batsman Raina might get the nod ahead of Karthik despite the latter's recent showings in the shortest format of the game.

Wrist-spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal snared seven wickets between them in Wednesday's win and are expected to retain their place for the clash.

One main reason for this downfall has been the shaky Chelsea back line that has conceded way too many goals this season. The 31-year-old scored 22 goals in all competitions and provided 9 assists for the side as well.

It's a rare occasion when the former Indian skipper had to sit out despite being in the squad.

Kaul is also yet to make his T20I debut, while Yadav played his only T20I back in 2012.

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. Dhoni and Raina are the other current' members from that playing eleven nine years ago. The match will start at 8:30 PM IST on June 29.
