Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan help India beat Ireland in Dublin T20

1st T20I Preview India Keen On Winning Start To English Summer

Peter Chase would, perhaps, be the prized player going around in that part of the world, for having snaffled the Indian skipper twice in two games.

However, the Ireland Cricket team are no pushovers and have T20 specialists like Paul Stirling and Kevin O'Brien in the team. But somehow the economy rate wasn't in his control. Since the 2017 Champions Trophy, India have played 32 ODIs and 18 T20Is, with Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah handling the new ball in 26 ODIs and 9 T20Is, respectively. That was after Virat Kohli failed to hit the ground running after choosing to open the innings. It became a double-blow as Rohit Sharma (0) was caught at backward point two balls later, a shot that can be described lazy at best. But the 15-ball 44 run blitz in the end empowered the tourists.

After thrashing Ireland in the 1st T20I, Team India is all set to face the Irish side in the final and T20I at Dublin.

If Ireland were hoping to make a step forward from the previous game, this turned out to be two steps back as their last seven wickets fell for just 40 runs in the space of 39 balls.

India achieved a comfortable victory in the first T20 global against Ireland on Wednesday.

Virat Kohli is happy that India is well prepared to take on in-form England when their much-awaited series starts on Tuesday with the first of three Twenty20 Internationals.

India take on Ireland in the second and final Twenty20 worldwide between the two sides in Dublin on Friday. Virat Kohli's side were given the flawless 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. However, Rohit missed a well-deserved century.

Siddarth Kaul, who took 21 wickets in the IPL this year, was given his debut on Friday and took a wicket in his second over although once again it was the spin twins Kuldeep Yadav and player of the series Yuzvendra Chahal who ripped through the Ireland line-up, sharing six wickets as Ireland were bowled out in just 12.3 overs for 70.
