The Ireland V. India two T20 match series comes to an end tomorrow with the second and final T20 of the series being played on 29th June. With just a day’s gap between both the matches, the Indian side is expected to make a couple of changes in a bid to keep players fresh before the upcoming tour of England and also try out as many combinations as possible. Having won the previous match by 76 runs means India can play with a free mind and express themselves on the pitch with no restrictions.
The first match played yesterday in Dublin was all about India with the Indian team running the show from the first to the last ball. Getting past the fabled 200 run mark, India’s spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Chahal killed of Ireland’s chase. Sharing 7 wickets between them is what makes the pair irreplaceable to the Indian team with captain Virat Kohli echoing the same thoughts. Talking after the game he said that ‘looking at the squad there are a few names that cannot be left out; Rohit, Dhawan, Kohli himself, Dhoni and the two leg spinners. However he did make it clear that India would be tinkering with the team, with players like Umesh Yadav, Kaul and Karthik expected to come into the side.
“We are going to do a lot of experiments in the middle order. We are looking to give everyone game time and want them to portray the qualities they possess because many guys go on tour and never get an opportunity to play,” said skipper Virat Kohli post the first T20I.
