TOSS – Up goes the flip of the coin and it lands in favor of Jasprit Bumrah. India have elected to BOWL first.
India on the other hand are without almost all of their big names but one of those names makes a comeback to the national side after a big injury layoff. Yes, it’s Jasprit Bumrah and he will be leading the side with Ruturaj Gaikwad as his deputy. A perfect opportunity for the visitors to test their bench strength and it should be a fascinating contest. Can Ireland pull off an upset here? Or will a young Indian side manage to pick up a win in foreign conditions? Stick around as toss and team news isn’t far away.
Ireland had a very solid T20I World Cup Europe Region Qualifier as they finished second behind rivals Scotland but booked a place in next year’s mega event. They will be hoping to replicate the same form against a quality side like India. The last time they faced India at home, it was a very positive series as we saw some fine young talent coming through the ranks. Skipper Paul Stirling will be looking to marshall his troops well and do some damage to the opposition.
Hello and very warm one and all to our coverage of the 1st T20I between Ireland and India at Malahide in Dublin.

It promises to be a great contest under the overcast Malahide skies.
