The last match of the two-match T20 series will be played between India and Ireland on Tuesday. The match will start at 9 pm in Dublin. Team India has currently taken an unassailable 1-0 lead in the series. In such a situation, India will be eyeing a clean sweep of Ireland to win the series. India won the first match by seven wickets. In the second T20I, the Indian team will expect better performance and clear weather from its young players like Umran Malik. The first match could be 12-12 overs due to rain. Rain can disturb the second match as well.
If this match is also canceled then India will win the series. However, it will only hurt that some young players will miss out on proving themselves. India has played four T20 matches against Ireland so far. Team India has won all these four matches. After the series against Ireland, the Indian team will also play a three-match T20 series against England next month. Before this the young players have a chance to impress the selectors. Fast bowler Umran Malik would also like to make an impact in this match. He got a chance to debut for Team India in the first match against Ireland.
However, he could bowl only one over in which he gave away 14 runs. It was the sixth over of the innings in which Harry Tector took advantage of Malik’s extra pace and hit two fours and a six. Captain Hardik Pandya has said that Malik does well with the old ball. In such a situation, he can be handed the ball after the powerplay. Avesh Khan also could not do well in the death overs. They want to do better too. Veteran Bhuvneshwar Kumar can once again trouble Ireland’s batsmen with his swing skills. Irish batsman Harry Tector, 22, batted fearlessly. Indian captain Hardik also praised his performance. If he performs well in the second match too, then the doors of IPL can open for him. Either Sanju Samson and Rahul Tripathi can get a chance in this match. Sanju Samson did not get a chance in the first match, but he can be fielded in the second match. Suryakumar Yadav, who returned to international cricket after recovering from injury, was dismissed on the first ball.
He is expected to do well in the second match. Rituraj Gaikwad could not take part in the first match due to injury. In such a situation, one of Rahul Tripathi and Samson can be fielded as an opener. In the last match, Deepak Hooda was given the opening and he batted well.
His place in the playing 11 is fixed. The team management can also do this by sending Hooda to the opening again and giving Samson a chance at number three. In such a situation, Rahul Tripathi may have to sit on the bench again. Ireland’s batsmen did well, but their bowlers could not do as well. He will need to improve ahead of India’s strong batting lineup. Craig Young made good use of swing and seam.
Fellow bowlers can take inspiration from Young. He knows that playing against a team like India is not going to happen every day and would like to capitalize on this opportunity. Hardik and Deepak Hooda scored 21 runs in an over from spinner Andy McBrian.
