India is all set to play a two-match Ireland vs India T20 series. India will tour Ireland and will play two T20s against them in Dublin, the first match on June 27 and second match two days later June 29 respectively. Both T20 matches will be played at Malahide.
This won’t be India’s first Irish tour. India has played against Ireland before in their home ground. They have played an ODI here in 2007.
This will be the first T20 international series for the Irish Coach Graham Ford and what a way to start your career against the major stalwarts of the game such as India. Ireland will be keen on making an international impression and statement by winning the series against India.
However, it is not going to be easy. Although Irish team will possess the home ground factor and the crowd support, still Indian squad suppress them in every aspect of the game. More experience, far better International ranking and big names in the international cricket. India will pose a major threat to the Irish squad.
Irish coach said, “The matches will, of course, be a huge challenge for the team, but what an opportunity for everyone to showcase their talents in front of a huge audience, both at the games and live on television.
“I’m sure the players will respond positively to the occasion with the added incentive of knowing eye-catching displays could result in a possible IPL contract.
“We haven’t played our best cricket in the format in recent years which is reflected in the rankings, but what better time to start climbing the ladder again. We have a number of players ideally suited to the short-form and on home soil it’s a great opportunity to cause a shock or two,”

The first match between Ireland and India will be played on 27th June, 2018, Wednesday at Malahide, Dublin.

Although, Irish pitches have comparitively more bounce and pace than Indian pitches. This could be Ireland’s only major advantage with which they can stun the Blue squad.
Virat Kohli apart from being the best batsman is an aggressive captain and he manages his team pretty well in the international circuit.
India possess batsmen like Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni and many others so Ireland have to be very careful with what bowlers they choose.
Super-quality all rounders such as Pandya Brothers are total match winners and Ireland will be lacking on them. Bowlers like Jasprit Bumrah and Umesh Yadav will come handy in death overs. So, overall India has no reason to worry about Ireland vs India first T20 prediction.
