India will compete against Ireland in the Group A match of the T20 World Cup 2024 at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York. The inaugural champions, India, will start their T20WC campaign against Ireland, who are one of the fastest improving cricket teams at the international level. On their recent trip to Ireland, the Indian cricket team found it hard to put them away till the very end, which is why it promises to be an intriguing cricket match to kick-off Group A in the T20 World Cup 2024.

Pitch Report

The Nassau County International Cricket Stadium is a makeshift facility with drop-in pitches brought from Australia, and that’s why, as of this writing, there are no T20I stats for this venue. In the warm-up match before the T20 World Cup 2024, the pitch at this venue behaved a bit erratically at the start of the innings with the occasional variable bounce and the lack of pace, which is why any total in excess of 180 will be above par for the course when India takes on Ireland.

Team Analysis


Rohit Sharma, the captain of India, is expected to open the innings for India alongside Virat Kohli in the T20 World Cup 2024, the responsibility of scoring the bulk of the runs in the middle order will fall on the likes of Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant. The bowling attack of India will be spearheaded by Jasprit Bumrah, and he will have the likes of Kuldeep Yadav, Arshdeep Singh, and Ravindra Jadeja delivering the key overs alongside him.

The opening pair of the captain Paul Stirling and Andrew Balbirnie will be quite vital to Ireland’s cause in the T20 World Cup 2024, in terms of providing them solid starts on which the young middle order batters like Lorcan Tucker, Harry Tector, George Dockrell, and Curtis Campher can build-on. In the bowling side of things, Josh Little and Craig Young will be needing to take the responsibility to pick up the bulk of the wickets for Ireland, while the likes of Mark Adair, Barry McCarthy and the rest can chip-in with key contributions every now and then.
