After coming down to the West Indies 2-3 in the T20I series, India is set to take on Ireland in a three-match T20I series commencing on August 18. The first match of the series will be played at The Village in Dublin. Cricket fans have set their eyes on the forthcoming series, as it marks the return of Jasprit Bumrah and Prasidh Krishna after long injury layoffs. With the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 less than 50 days away, the upcoming series would play a huge role for all the players including Bumrah and Krishna.
Apart from them, Rinku Singh, Shivam Dube, and Jitesh Sharma also got their national call with the series after a blockbuster IPL season.
Ireland have a very experienced squad to play this T20I series when compared to India as they have big names like Paul Stirling, Andy Balbirnie, Curtis Campher, Josh Little, etc. They can give a tough competition and even try to win the three-match T20I series against this inexperienced Indian side like what West Indies did a few days back. Mark Adair has been in terrific form with a record of 12 wickets in his last five T20I games. On the other hand, Curtis Campher averaged 47.25 and a strike rate of 147.65 in the last 10 T20Is.
The Indian cricket team is being rested after a tiring T20I tour against West Indies, the junior team has been called for national duty. While the series gives an opportunity for the newcomers to make a mark in Indian colours, the upcoming three games will also be crucial for Jasprit Bumrah, Prasidh Krishna and Sanju Samson who are in contention for the ICC ODI World Cup 2023. Names like Rinku Singh, Yashasvi Jaiswal, and Ruturaj Gaikwad who are coming off a fantastic IPL 2023 season will be under the eyes of many and will be expected to score big numbers in the series.
