India vs Ireland LIVE score: Advice for Tilak Varma

Former Indian chief selector Sarandeep Singh has some advice for Tilak Varma. 

"Tilak Varma should do one simple thing: go and observe first how the wicket is behaving. Where he made his debut in the West Indies, the conditions were somewhat similar to India and the wicket behaved in a similar manner. There, he could play shots in a certain way. However, now that he is in Ireland, the conditions are different. The wicket is harder, there is grass on it, moisture is present, and there are overcast conditions. The ball moves, and there is more bounce. So, he should take a bit of time, face 15-16 balls, and then start playing his shots," Sarandeep was quoted as saying by ANI
