India vs Ireland, At New York ICC Men’s T20 World Cup IND vs IRE Live @ Ptv Sports


Howdy, everyone! Welcome to PtvSports’s coverage of India vs Ireland, At New York ICC Men’s T20 World Cup IND vs IRE Live @ Ptv Sports. The sun is shining and it’s a beautiful morning in New York.

Team news: Dube likely, Jaiswal unlikely

India (probable): 1 Rohit Sharma (capt), 2 Virat Kohli, 3 Suryakumar Yadav, 4 Shivam Dube, 5 Rishabh Pant (wk), 6 Hardik Pandya, 7 Ravindra Jadeja, 8 Kuldeep Yadav, 9 Arshdeep Singh, 10 Jasprit Bumrah, 11 Mohammed Siraj

Ireland’s batting goes down to No. 8 and it has a reasonable split between power-hitters and shock absorbers. Andy Balbirnie and Lorcan Tucker have the ability to do both of those roles. Their bowling is seam-dominated but left-arm spinner George Dockrell could get an over or two against the more orthodox batters in the Indian line-up.

Ireland (probable): 1 Andy Balbirnie, Paul Stirling (capt), 3 Lorcan Tucker (wk), 4 Harry Tector, 5 Curtis Campher, 6 George Dockrell, 7 Gareth Delany, 8 Mark Adair, 9 Barry McCarthy, 10 Craig Young, 11 Ben White

Pitch and conditions: It’s a mystery

The weather in New York is perfect for cricket. Not too hot, not too cold, no worry about dew. The pitch and outfield, however, will be under the scanner again after the events from Monday, where 80 for 4 in 16.2 overs played 77 all out. But things can only get better. India played a warm-up game here, on a different track, and they scored 180.

“Cricket not being one of the major sports in [the USA], you don’t kind of feel that kind of buzz here but hopefully once our games start and a lot of the Indian fans do start coming in, you start seeing that similar kind of excitement.”
India coach Rahul Dravid is hopeful the game will acquire a new market

“There’s such great Irish roots in America, definitely in New York, so it would be nice to get a good turn out from the locals – a bit of green in the crowd to back us would be welcome.”
Ireland’s George Dockrell is hoping for some support on Wednesday.
