Follow: IRE vs IND 2nd T20I Live Score
Coming on the back of a humiliating loss in the five-match T20I series against West Indies, India made a solid comeback and how. India, under the captaincy of Jasprit Bumrah, defeated their Irish counterparts by two runs in a rain-intervened match. The second game of the series is slated to be hosted on August 20, where the Men in Blue will take on their counterparts to take a 2-0 lead in the series, whereas Paul Stirling and Co. will be eyeing to make a comeback.
In the first match of the series, the India captain Jasprit Bumrah won the toss and chose to bowl first. The decision surely worked for them, and the travellers won the match. Not only this, if we have a look at the past toss records between both the teams, after Friday's match, it stands 4-2 in favour of Indian men. Given the data, the 2007 T20I WC winners are coming out as favourites to come on the top of the toss battle in the second clash.
If we look at the squads of both sides, Ireland’s members are more experienced than the Indian side. The Indian team consists of many fresh faces, along with the skipper who is making his comeback after a long time. However, the visiting team is in red-hot form and given the fact that World Cup 2023 is approaching, each player is looking forward to delivering their best performance.
A less-experienced Indian team outplayed their Irish rivals in the first of three-match T20I series. They will look forward to continuing the same streak and we feel Jasprit Bumrah-led side will win the next game.
