There will always be a favorite player, who will not be part of your playing eleven. But against Ireland I try to pick the playing XI. In my opinion, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli should open the innings, while Yashaswi Jaiswal should come in at number three. Suryakumar Yadav is at number four and Rishabh Pant is at number five.

Afghanistan became the first team in the history of T20 WC to do so.
