When and where:
After a crushing 76 runs defeat in the first T20I, Ireland will once against host the men in blue for the 2nd and last T20I tomorrow (June 29) at the same ground- The Village Dublin starting at 08:30 PM IST.
After getting the invitation to set the target, India posted a massive total of 208/5 with the help of excellent knocks of Hitman – Rohit Sharma (97 of 61) and Gabbar- Shikhar Dhawan (74 of 45) at the top. Peter Chase was the key bowler for the hosts who bagged 4 wickets managing 3 in his last over. It was time for the hosts to chase down the target who could only manage 132-9 in 20 over against the tricky turns of Yuzvendra Chahal (38-3) and Kuldeep Yadav (21-4). Apart from James Shannon (60 of 35) none of the Ireland batters managed to cross 15 runs mark.
In tomorrow’s game, a couple of changes are expected to take place in both teams. For India, Virat Kohli has said to undergo one or two changes, especially in middle order. So, KL Rahul and Dinesh Karthik who were on the bench in the first game might get a chance in the second T20 in place of Manish Pandey or Suresh Raina. Ireland might bring in William Porterfield who missed the last game.
So, let’s see if the hosts will be more competitive tomorrow or the visitors will dominate them the same way.
Seeing the first T20I, the pitch is favorable for both batting and bowling. It has something for everyone. Like the previous game, expect this game also to be a high scoring affair if India gets to bat first. The wicket has assistance for the bowlers too, they just need to bowl the right delivery. Wrist spinners are expected to create a difference again.
