India is all set to take the field today against Ireland for the 2nd T20I in Dublin. After winning convincingly, Hardik Pandya led young team India is charging themselves to clean sweep the Irish on their home soil.
In the first T20I Indian captain won the toss and opted to bowl first. The match was reduced to 12 overs for each team due to rain delay. The Irish team could only manage to put up a score of 108 which India chased down easily with Deepak Hooda’s 47 runs. Ruturaj Gaikwad couldn’t bat due to his niggle which Hardik confirmed later. He has got speedy recovery and is all set to take the field today.
Scheduled time: The match is scheduled to start at 9:00 pm IST.
Weather Report: In the match time the temperature is expected to be around 14°C. The humidity is expected to be 72% with an 18 kmph wind speed. Though the chance of precipitation is quite lower than in the previous game, almost 18%.
Pitch Report: The match is to be played on the same pitch used in the previous match so the chance of changing the pitch condition is less. Pacers will get some swing in the air but it would certainly be a batting-friendly pitch with the minimum advantage of spinners. As the ground is small the spectators can expect a run-fest here.
The stage is all set for both teams. India will look to win the series while the Irish will want to put their name in big cricketing nations by defeating the mighty Men in Blues.
