India vs Ireland: What to Expect From the Young Side?

India’s cricket squad, captained by Hardik Pandya, is currently in Ireland. On Sunday, Malahide will host the opening game of a two-game T20 series. The exciting India vs. Ireland game will begin at 9 PM IST. Here in this article, we talk about India vs Ireland T20 Squads.

Since it is a young side, we can expect the approach to the game to be different. The team looks completely changed. We have a new captain in Hardik Pandya who will be leading the national side for the first time. We also have a new coach for the tour VVS Laxman.

There are a few new additions to the team, let’s talk about them.

  • Notably, Rahul Tripathi’s opportunity to wear the national colors was granted as a result of his constant success in the Indian Premier League. Tripathi scored 413 runs at an average of 37.54 and a strike rate of 158.23 in the IPL 2022 while playing for Sunrisers Hyderabad. It will be interesting to see him in blue jersey.
  • Sanju Samson is expecting to have a similar influence on the Indian team as Dinesh Karthik did when he prepared for the series against Ireland. The Kerala-born wicketkeeper-batsman will attempt to translate his success in the IPL into victory on the international stage beginning on Sunday.
  • Umran Malik and Arshdeep Singh are the first two on the list to make their debut. In the fiercely contested South Africa series, the two IPL superstars were denied their chance. But the tour’s head coach, VVS Laxman, will probably put them to the test in first T20.

What to expect from the wicket?

Spinners have had the most success on the Dublin pitch when it comes to bowlers, while pacers may also be useful. Yuzvendra Chahal will have pleasant recollections of this venue because he took 6 wickets in his two games there.

Chahal will therefore be India’s best option for selecting wickets. Along with him, Kuldeep Yadav has also excelled on this surface, but since he is out with an injury, India may turn to Axar Patel, another left-arm spinner.

What to expect from the team?

This is a young side. Most of them will be touring to Ireland for the first time and it will be a great experience for them. We have a test for a new captain and a coach which is something to watch out for.

Selectors and fans will be looking out for young debutants. The way they carry themselves in the field and their ability to undertake international challenges will be put to test. It will be an exciting outing for us and them.

Most of the players are selected due to their IPL performance. The benchmark will be tested if it is the right criteria to select players on the international level.

Ireland has a good side, it will be interesting to see how they challenge the young Indian side. They should look confident and play with an intent to win.
