IND vs IRE T20 WC 2024: This strategy will help Team India win against Ireland, know everything from pitch to match

IND vs IRE T20 WC 2024: India’s superstar cricketers will leave no stone unturned to erase the regret of not winning the ICC trophy over the years and will begin their mission with the first match against Ireland in the T20 World Cup on Wednesday. There are still many unsolved questions in the Indian team, such as what the team composition will be on the ‘drop in’ pitch. From the matches played here so far, it is clear that there are not going to be many runs like in the Indian Premier League. An even bigger concern is the label of strong title contender. Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are members of World Cup winning teams, but cricketers like Jasprit Bumrah and Ravindra Jadeja, who are considered ‘one in a decade’, are yet to win the title and are desperately waiting for it.

Captain Rohit Sharma could not hide his tears while climbing the stairs to the dressing room of the Narendra Modi Stadium after the ODI World Cup final last year. Sadness was evident on the face of Kohli who scored 765 runs. Sometimes the best players together do not make the best team. India has reposed faith in its experienced players but it should not be forgotten that this same team has failed to break through the last two spells several times.

This is the last World Cup for the 37-year-old Rohit and it is almost certain that he will not play until the next T20 World Cup in India and the 50-over World Cup in South Africa in 2027. On the other hand, Ireland team has good T20 cricketers like Paul Sterling, Josh Little, Harry Tector, Andy Balbirnie.

This is the condition of the pitch

It will be interesting to see how the Indian team plays Ireland’s left-arm spinner George Dockrell on the slow and medium wicket of the Nassau County Cricket Stadium. India has the advantage of having better spinners than Ireland, although the fast bowling attack looks a little weak apart from Bumrah.

This will keep an eye on the players

Sometimes having too many options is not a good situation and that is what is happening with India at the top. Yashwi Jaiswal may have to stay out for captain Rohit and Kohli. Rishabh Pant batted at number three in the practice match and Hardik Pandya bowled well. Pandya bowled well to Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav and Rohit in the practice session. Shivam Dubey and additional spinners can be included in the Indian team if he is able to bowl even three overs every day. Ireland, who beat Pakistan on their soil before the World Cup, cannot be underestimated. Little also has IPL playing experience for Gujarat Titans.


India: Rohit Sharma (captain), Hardik Pandya, Yashwi Jaiswal, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Sanju Samson, Shivam Dubey, Ravindra Jadeja, Akshar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Arshdeep Singh, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Siraj.

Ireland: Paul Stirling (capt), Mark Adair, Ross Adair, Andrew Balbirnie, Curtis Kempfer, Gareth Delaney, George Dockrell, Graham Hume, Josh Little, Barry McCarthy, Neil Rock, Harry Tector, Lorcan Tucker, Ben White, Craig Young

Match Timing: 8 PM onwards.
