IND vs IRE: India Playing 11 for the T20I series against Ireland Prediction
IND vs IRE: The Ireland series will be an opportunity for young players to make their case strong for the T20I setup. It’s fair to say that those who missed on the squad for the West Indies series will get an opportunity here as some players are likely to be rested considering the jam-packed schedule.
Ruturaj Gaikwad along with Yashasvi Jaiswal is likely to open the inning as it is expected that Shubman Gill will be rested. The duo has been scoring truckloads of runs in IPL as well in the domestic circuit. Therefore they are expected to open the innings.
Suryakumar Yadav is no doubt will bat at No.3 as he has been exceptional in whatever games they have played for India. At No.4 it is expected that Tilak Varma is likely to bat in the middle as he also got selected for the West Indies series.
Sanju Samson will be the keeper in the team and is expected to be slotted at No.5. Skipper Hardik Pandya is expected to play a crucial role with the ball as well at No.6 whereas Axar Patel will be the second all-rounder in the team.
Umran Malik, Arshdeep Singh and Mukesh are likely to be the pace trio in the team whereas Ravi Bishnoi is expected to be the spinner in the team as he has been doing decently well in the shortest format of the game.
