A second-string Indian team takes on Ireland in the 1st T20 at the Village Stadium in Dublin with the team still looking at its combination with not much time left for the T20 World Cup in Australia. Hardik Pandya will lead the team and the mercurial all-rounder will hope to have the same kind of impact he had at Gujrat Titans this year in the IPL. The Indian team will also be under the guidance of stand-in coach VVS Laxman with Rahul Dravid engaged with the senior team in England as they gear up for the rescheduled fifth Test match. For opposition Ireland, this series brings an ideal opportunity for them to play competitive cricket against a marquee side and they will be geared up for it. Ireland versus India will be telecasted on the Sony Ten Network and streamed on Sony Liv app from 9:00 PM IST. IND vs IRE 1st T20I 2022 Preview: Likely Playing XIs, Key Battles, Head to Head and Other Things You Need To Know About India vs Ireland Cricket Match in Malahide

Stephen Doheny and Conor Olphert are two uncapped players included in the Ireland squad and could make their debuts against India. Paul Stirling and Andy Balbirnie at the top of the order like to attack from the onset and the former in particular can be devastating in this format. In the bowling department, George Dockrell with his four overs of spin needs to have a good game considering the Indians play spinners well.

Ishan Kishan had a good series against the Proteas at home recently and another noteworthy outing for the Men in Blue could see him cement his place in the T20 World Cup squad. Dinesh Karthik will keep for the visitors in the absence of Rishabh Pant and given his performances in the past few months, he definitely is India’s player to watch out for.
