Venue: The Village Stadium in Dublin
Pitch Report and Details
The side batting first reached 200 in each of the three matches before that, including Scotland's incredible 252 for 3 against Netherlands in September 2019 thanks to George Munsey's 127 off 56 balls. There have been three 180-plus first-inning totals in the previous five T20Is at Malahide.
The Ireland captain, Andy Balbirnie, anticipated favourable batting conditions. I don't really expect too much of a change because "it's typically really excellent, it's fairly accurate, and you kind of get value for your shots."
Overall: Batting favour
In June, India will travel to Ireland for a two-match T20I series. The two games, which are scheduled for June 26 and 28, will serve as a practise run for India's tour to England, which will begin on July 1. India is visiting Ireland for the second time after 2-18. India previously played a two-match T20I series, which it won 2-0.
Three Twenty20 Internationals between India and Ireland have now been played, and the Men in Blue have won all three. Players from both teams have a chance to have an effect on this IND vs IRE matchup. Ireland hasn't played any competitive cricket since the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 qualifiers, despite the Men in Blue having just returned from a series against South Africa at home.
