After a fascinating comeback against South Africa, India would be aiming to add to their momentum and confidence when they take on Ireland in the first of a two-game series on Sunday, June 26. The match would be played at the Malahide Cricket Clun and is scheduled to start at 9:00 pm IST (Indian Standard Time). For the first time, Hardik Pandya would be donning the captain's hat for India after his impressive leadership skills helped Gujarat Titans clinch the IPL 2022 title in their maiden season. The team would have a lot of young faces, especially in the batting department. Suryakumar Yadav's return to the team is indeed no less than a big boost with the likes of Rahul Tripathi waiting in the wings to make his debut after an impressive IPL 2022. In the bowling department, there's a chance that the duo of Arshdeep Singh and Umran Malik finally get to make their debut for the national team. IND vs IRE Dream11 Team Prediction: Tips To Pick Best Fantasy Playing XI for India vs Ireland 1st T20I 2022 in Malahide
