India’s pursuit of the second T20 World Cup title kicks off with a highly-anticipated match against Ireland at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York on Wednesday. Both teams are placed in Group A. India have a remarkable record against Ireland, having emerged victorious in all seven T20Is played between them so far. They are termed as the favourites for the upcoming encounter.

Despite India’s disappointing finishes in the previous T20 and ODI World Cups, they remain strong contenders for the championship. Their recent success in T20I matches highlights their ongoing potential, having secured four victories and suffered only one loss in their last five games.

Ireland’s journey to the World Cup was an arduous one, as they had to cope with challenging European qualifications after missing out on direct entry. Their perseverance paid off as they secured a commendable second-place finish. Ireland’s competitive spirit is not to be underestimated, especially given their recent victories over teams like Pakistan and Afghanistan in the T20I format.

Nassau County Stadium, New York, Pitch Report

The upcoming match at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium will only be the second in the venue’s history. Previously, the stadium hosted a match between Sri Lanka and South Africa on June 3. Sri Lanka were bowled out for just 77 runs during this low-scoring encounter. South Africa also struggled in their chase, reaching the target in the 17th over. The pitch for the upcoming match is expected to be slow and sluggish, which could favour India due to their skilled spinners who can effectively utilize such conditions.

IND vs IRE Probable Best Players of the Match

Probable Best Batter of the Match:

Rohit Sharma has been entering the fray with an attacking mindset as evident in ODI World Cup 2023. The Indian captain can bat deep into the game if he settles in. With Nassau’s deck aiding the slow bowlers and spinners mainly, he is expected to apply a subdued approach at the start before unleashing his class.

Probable Best Bowler of the Match:

Arshdeep Singh was clinical when he played for Punjab Kings in IPL 2024. He was at his best even when the Mullanpur pitch assisted the slow bowlers. He was among the wickets in the most number of games played at that particular venue. Purely on how Nassau’s pitch will traverse, he can be lethal with his timely yorkers and knuckle balls to deceive batters.
