India Vs Ireland today's match | India cricket match

Before departing to England earlier this week the Indian skipper felt not playing county could be a blessing in disguise as a break from the game has refreshed him completely

In his post-match interview, Virat Kohli indicated that the Indian team would look to give everyone in the squad an opportunity before they head to England, and keeping this in mind, this slideshow looks at India's predicted 11 for the second T20 global match against Ireland.

Suresh Raina was then sent in when Ireland eventually ended India's second-highest opening T20 stand.

It will be interesting to see whom among the trio of Suresh Raina, Dinesh Karthik and Manish Pandey get a game with Dhoni and all-rounder Hardik Pandya filling up the No.6 and 7 spots.

The T20Is against Ireland are only a precursor to the sterner tests in England, where the Virat Kohli-led side will tour next to play three T20Is, three One-day Internationals (ODI) and five Test matches.

"I've got a good mindset of who's batting where so in the next few games, not just the Ireland ones but also against England, we will look to be flexible and use them as and when the situation requires them", the skipper added.

Wimbledon 2018 seeds: Halep top, Serena 25th
The tennis great said earlier this week that pregnancy should not be penalized when it comes to tournament seeding. The 36-year-old American gave birth to a daughter last September and was off the tour for more than a year.

Time: Ireland vs India, 2nd T20I will begin at 8:30 pm (IST).

In KL Rahul, Dinesh Karthik, Umesh Yadav and Siddarth Kaul, India have four in-form players to unleash at Ireland. Destructive T20 batsman Raina might get the nod ahead of Karthik despite the latter's recent showings in the shortest format of the game.

Malahide must have felt like home for India on Wednesday given they were playing in warm temperatures more commonly associated with Delhi rather than Dublin, while over half of the 9,000 crowd were supporting the tourists. Peter Chase picked up four wickets for Ireland late on even as he went for 35 runs in the four overs. The pitch condition is good and there will be a good contest between bat and ball on this pitch.

Wrist-spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal snared seven wickets between them in Wednesday's win and are expected to retain their place for the clash. "We've obviously been beaten by 70-odd runs, a big margin in Twenty20 cricket".
