Preview

India will be facing Ireland in a 2-match T20I series at Malahide, Dublin.

Both the matches will be played at the same venue.

On paper, India looks the stronger team than Ireland but the hosts can overturn India.

While India have become a dangerous side in T20 internationals in the past year, Ireland have not much to show in the shortest format of the game.

India will also have the opportunity to use its bench strength in the 2 T20Is.

For Ireland, they have only won one series against Zimbabwe.

Additionally, Ireland have not played against a full-member nation since last year’s ICC T20 World Cup and have a great opportunity to showcase their skills against India.

Also, Ireland will be playing against more full-member nations after India which include New Zealand, South Africa and Afghanistan.
