India vs Ireland: Playing XI, team Combinations and players to watch out

Team India is all set to play the 2-match T20I series against Ireland starting on June 26. Let us dive into India vs Ireland Playing XI, team Combinations and much more details…

This is India’s first visit to Ireland since 2018, but the mighty India will be looking to make the most out it. They have tied the series against the strong competitor South Africa previous week by 2-2 and now they are all charged up to win the series against Ireland.

However, tied a series is not a big deal, but India was playing without their main players and they still managed to tie the series is certainly a good thing.

Ireland, not a weak team either. They have plenty of reliable players in their side who hold the ability to turn the game into their teams’ favour. But playing against the no.1 side in the world will be tough question to answer for them in the series.

Team Combinations

For India, The proven opening pair of Ruturaj Gaikwad and Ishan Kishan are all set to start the proceedings. At no.3 we expect Suryakumar Yadav, followed by Deepak Hooda, and Hardik Patel. While Dinesh Karthik is the perfect wicket-keeper batter to be included in the team.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar will lead the Indian fast bowling department with other interesting fast bolwers Arshdeep Singh and Harshal Patel, while Yuzvendra Chahal and Axar Patel will be an ideal spin choice to use in Ireland conditions.

Paul Stirling and the skipper Andrew Balbirine will lead the openers challenge for Ireland. While the Lorcan Tucker to play at No.3, followed by strong middle order consists of Gareth Delany, Harry Tector. And the all-rounders George Dockrell and Andy McBrine will take care of the tough overs if they get the chance.

Mark Adair will a tough bowler to face in initial overs for India. While Barry McCarthy, Joshua Little and Curtis Campher will be a handy options for Ireland against Inida.

Players to watch out for

Suryakumar Yadav, who missed South Africa series due to injury, is back in the squad and is ready to roar. While the dangerous finishers Hardik Pandya and Dinesh Karthik can give headache to Ireland in the 1st T20.

Paul Stirling, the skipper Andrew Balbirnie, and Lorcan Tucker are the strongest players in Ireland side.
