ICC T20 World Cup 2024: India takes on Ireland in New York

India will face Ireland in Match 8 of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York on June 5 at 08:00 PM IST. The last encounter between these two teams was during the 2nd T20I of India’s tour of Ireland in the 2023 T20I series. In that match, Ruturaj Gaikwad earned the highest fantasy points for India with 88, while Andy Balbirnie led the fantasy points leaderboard for Ireland with 99 points.

IND vs IRE Head-to-Head

Ireland has lost all seven previous encounters with India, reflecting a poor track record compared to their opponents. Based on current analysis and patterns, India is expected to win this match. Thus far, both teams’ bowlers have earned the most fantasy points for their respective sides.

Pitch and Conditions: A puzzle

The weather in New York is perfect for cricket—not too hot, not too cold, with no concerns about dew. However, the pitch and outfield will be scrutinized again after Monday’s events, where one team scored 80 for 4 in 16.2 overs, and the other was bowled out for 77. Things can only improve from here. India played a warm-up game on a different track and managed to score 180 runs.

Weather Report

The temperature is expected to be around 21.63°C with 67% humidity and winds at 4.42 m/s. Cloud cover is expected, which may provide some movement to aid the pace bowlers.

India (probable): Rohit Sharma (capt), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Shivam Dube, Rishabh Pant (wk), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Arshdeep Singh, Jasprit Bumrah, 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
