Surya Kumar Yadav Return to the team after recovering from injury Hardik Pandya Will lead the team in the series. Bhuvneshwar Kumar As the team’s vice-captain
In our opinion, India’s playing XI for the first T20I against Ireland is:
Ishan Kishan: South Pow was on the song against South Africa as he ended up as the highest run scorer in the series. They will be seen imitating their batting form.
Raturaj GaikwadThe right-handed batsman scored just one fifty in the series against South Africa, and he will be hoping for more consistency to consolidate his place in the team.
Surya Kumar Yadav: Star Indian batsmen have returned to the national team after recovering from an injury to their left arm. His form is crucial for India ahead of the T20 World Cup in Australia later this year.
Sanjo Samson: Although the team’s battle to secure a place in the playing XI is currently extremely difficult for Samson, the Irish series could help strengthen his case. Samson needs to take his innings deep.
Hardik Pandya (c): All-rounder will captain India for the first time. In addition to his leadership, the focus will once again be on how he uses himself as a bowler.
Dinesh Karthik: He is a man on a mission. After a memorable national comeback in the series against South Africa, Karthik will be looking to take his performance against Ireland to the next level.
Akshar Patel: Southpaw becomes an important member of the team due to its versatility. He can catch batsmen with his left-handed Orthodox spin and can also hit big shots with the bat. He is also a Gun Fielder.
Herschel Patel: He emerged as the highest wicket-taker in the T20I series against South Africa. The series against Ireland will help Herschel try some new variations.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar: He was the second most economical bowler in the South African series. Despite conceding about 11 runs per over in the first game, Bhovi bowled less than six runs per over in the remaining three games in which he bowled.
Imran Malik: Given the pace of the country, the team management may try to give them their first international match against Ireland to ensure that they move forward in the easiest way possible.
