The sunny Dublin basks in the spotlight as it gears for the second and final T20I of the series. While India continue their preparation for their next destination, Gary Wilson and co. would hope to dampen India’s spirit with a victory over the Blues.

Virat Kohli could not have asked for a better start as the performance in the previous game almost ticked off all the boxes. With Rohit Sharma seemingly getting rid of his demons from the IPL and Shikhar Dhawan continuing his fine form, the skipper has very less to worry when it comes to the opening duo.

The Men in Green failed to pose a threat last time around and genuinely struggled against the Indian spinners, who have found their rhythm quickly on the European shores.

Key Players:

Kuldeep Yadav: The left-arm chinaman bamboozled the Irish batsmen with his leg-breaks and wrong’uns. Expect the spinner to do more of the same.

James Shannon: The Ireland opening batsman was the only Irish to offer resistance en route scoring almost half of Ireland’s entire total. With Paul Stirling on the other end, these two are Ireland’s best hope to counter India’s lethal pace attack.
