After a disappointing series loss against the West Indies, India’s young brigade travels to Ireland for an entertaining three-game T20I series. The series will be crucial for the Men in Blue as top fast bowler Jasprith Bumrah returns to the team after a long injury lay-off. Similarly, these three games will allow Team India to further develop its pool of players for the T20 World Cup in 2024.
The pitch at the Village in Dublin is often considered a batting paradise where bowlers are generally under the pump with the ground’s smallish dimensions. But in the right conditions, fast bowlers can also find some help while spinners are generally crucial in the middle overs on this surface.
Over the last few years, Ireland has grown into one of the most exciting teams full of young players and veteran leaders. The Irish have put together a solid group of youngsters, who will certainly be the future of cricket in Ireland. With quality batters like Paul Stirling, Harry Tector and Curtis Campher the inexperienced Indian bowling could concede a lot of runs. While the bowling attack led by Joshua Little has the ability to make early in-roads in a young batting lineup.

On the other hand, Team India has put forth a squad of exciting stars, who don’t possess a lot of international experience but have performed incredibly well in a high-pressure tournament like the IPL. The batting will include the likes of Ruturaj Gaikwad, Yashasvi Jaiswal and Tilak Varma; who would love to seal their spots in the Indian team. While in the bowling attack, all eyes will be on Jasprith Bumrah, who will be crucial for Team India’s chances in major tournaments throughout 2023.
SportsTiger Playing XI of India:
Ruturaj Gaikwad, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson (wk), Tilak Varma, Rinku Singh, Washington Sundar, Ravi Bishnoi, Jasprit Bumrah (C), Prasidh Krishna, Arshdeep Singh, Mukesh Kumar.
The Indian Team has a better chance to win this fixture and defeat Ireland to take a 1-0 lead in the T20I series.
