The second T20I between Ireland and India takes place at the Village, Malahide, Dublin today. In the first match on Wednesday, India won convincingly by 76 runs. Particularly impressive were the performances by Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan for India and Peter Chase for Ireland.
June 29 - Ireland v India, 1st T20I
Venue – Malahide, Dublin
Time - 4pm BST
Weather – Dry and Sunny and 23-25C
Let’s have a look at the last T20I match details and today’s squads before making our match predictions and looking at the value on the cricket betting tips.
India 208-5 (20 ovs): Rohit 97, Dhawan 74; Chase 4-35
Ireland 132-9 (20 ovs): Shannon 60; Yadav 4-21, Chahal 3-38
All in all India are the more powerful and experienced squad and I can see another India win here today. However, there may be some changes to the batting order which will affect the odds on the top batting details, I fancy that Virat Kohli might want a longer bat (for some match practice) before the England Tour gets underway.
