India vs Ireland, T20 World Cup 2024 Highlights: India's fast bowlers ripped the Ireland batting order apart and the latter were all out for a score of just 96 in 16 overs. Rohit Sharma and Rishabh Pant then helped India to an eight-wicket win, with the latter finishing off the chase in 12.2 overs. Arshdeep Singh dismissed both Irish openers in the third over after Rohit Sharma won the toss and chose to bowl first. Hardik Pandya got a wicket in the seventh over and then Jasprit Bumrah then struck in the ninth. The freefall never really stopped as Pandya added two more wickets to his tally and Axar Patel got one in the only over of spin in the innings through a brilliant catch that he himself took....Read More

Bumrah got his second with a trademark yorker to dismiss Josh Little and thus end a 27-run partnership for the 10th wicket with Gareth Delaney, highest of the innings for Ireland. The innings ended with a mix-up and a run out. Pandya finished with figures of 3/27 while Arshdeep returned in 2/35, with both players bowling their full quota of four overs. Mohammed Siraj returned 1/13 in 3 overs while Axar got 1/3 in the single over that he bowled. Bumrah was the standout though, recording numbers of 2/6 in three overs.

Virat Kohli opened the batting with Rohit but didn't last long, falling for one run in five balls in the third over. Rohit carried on with Rishabh Pant though, eventually scoring 52 in 37 balls before retiring hurt. Pant finished it off with a reverse scoop six, staying unbeaten on 36 off 26 balls.

India vs Ireland Live Score T20 World Cup 2024, IND vs IRE: What Rohit Sharma said

IND vs IRE LIVE Score, T20 World Cup 2024: "Yeah, just a little sore (the arm). I said it at the toss as well. Quite unsure of what to expect from the pitch. Not aware on what it is to play like on a pitch that's five months old. I don't think the wicket settled down even when we batted second. There was enough for the bowlers. That's pretty much what you gotta do. Try to hit those lengths consistently. All these guys have played a lot of Test cricket. Arshdeep is the only guy who hasn't. His two wickets upfront set the tone for us. Don't think we can play four spinners here (laughs). When we picked the team, we wanted to have the balance. If conditions are there for seamers, we wanted to have that. Spin will play a part later on. Today was a four-seamer pitch and we still managed to get two spinners who are allrounders. I don't know what to expect from the pitch to be honest. We will prepare as if the conditions are going to be like this (for Pakistan game). This is going to be a kind of game where all XI of us will need to contribute. It was scratchy, but good to spend some time in the middle and understand what kind of shots to play there."

India vs Ireland Live Score T20 World Cup 2024, IND vs IRE: Jasprit Bumrah is the player of the match

IND vs IRE LIVE Score, T20 World Cup 2024: Imperious figures of 2/6 in three overs. There can't be any arguments really. "Coming from India, with the ball seaming around, I wouldn't complain when there's help for bowlers. In this format you have to adapt to the conditions, you have to be proactive. Trying to stick to the plans and trying to go back to what has worked for me. You always want to cover all the bases in these conditions. You got to be prepared, very happy with the outing today," he said.

India vs Ireland Live Score T20 World Cup 2024, IND vs IRE: The two teams had taken a drinks break after the end of that over and Rohit walks off during that time. Seems to be something to do with him being hit on his right shoulder a few minutes ago. How India would be hoping that this is only a minor issue and Rohit is avoiding taking risks considering the match is pretty much done.

India vs Ireland Live Score T20 World Cup 2024, IND vs IRE: He gets there by crunching a full toss from Adair fifth ball of the 10th through midwicket for his fourth four. Rohit has reached the mark in 36 balls. A welcome half-century for him, especially considering just how patchy his form was in the IPL. He takes two runs after that and reaches 52 in 37, India need 21 to win from 60 balls.

India vs Ireland Live Score T20 World Cup 2024, IND vs IRE: Well this is getting over quite quickly. Little bowling his third over in the ninth, the first two are dot balls, with Ireland trying their hand at a review for caught behind. Clearly missing the bat though. Then Rohit brings out that gorgeous pull shot of his for a six over deep backward square leg. Goes again the next ball and gets yet another six. Two dot balls to end the over.

Both players don't seem extremely bothered by the lack of boundaries which is understandable. This target is so low that chasing it without going after too many boundaries will give them a huge boost in the net run rate.

He beat Rohit on the inside edge third ball of the over and then the last ball is edged right through the hands of Balbirnie at second slip. Quite extraordinary how that catch wasn't taken.

India vs Ireland Live Score T20 World Cup 2024, IND vs IRE: Eight Irish wickets fell to fast bowlers today, which is joint second for India in terms of most wickets taken by a fast bowler in a T20 World Cup match. It is tied with what their pacers managed in Melbourne in their 2022 opener against Pakistan and one behind what they did in the 2007 final in Johannesburg against the same opposition. Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are geared up and ready standing by the boundary. Both are all smiles and relaxed.

India vs Ireland Live Score T20 World Cup 2024, IND vs IRE: A mix-up and a run out ends the innings. Delany with a few lusty blows in the first four balls. Delany got a four off the first ball, a six off the third and another four off the fourth. Arshdeep bowled a third bouncer for the last ball and the umpire called it no ball. White hits the free-hit delivery into deep point, he wanted to come back for the second and give Delany strike, the latter hesitates, leading to White hesitating, leading to a complete breakdown in communication. The throw comes in and Pant whips the bails off.

IND vs IRE LIVE Score, T20 World Cup 2024: Oh bang on the money and that is the end of that mini-partnership Bumrah had dug in the first ball wide and it screamed into Little cramping him up. It deflected off his pads, missed the stumps and just about beat Pant and the helmet behind the stumps to go for four leg byes. He follows that up with a roaring yorker angled into middle stump 145kph, Little makes room but is totally powerless against that. The stumps are rattled, Ireland down to their last wicket.

The fourth ball is wide again, followed by a single and then another wide. Tucker ends the over with a gorgeous shot through the covers for four. He is on nine off 10, Tector on one off four.

India vs Ireland Live Score T20 World Cup 2024, IND vs IRE: As has been the case in the matches that have happened so far in the Caribbean, a lot of purchase for the fast bowlers here. Siraj returns for the fourth over and just four runs in it, once again all of it coming from a boundary. Lorcan Tucker walks across for the fourth ball of the over, gets down low and ramps it over the wicketkeeper to the boundary. He is on five off eight, Harry Tector at the other end yet to face a delivery. Arshdeep to bowl his third now.

IND vs IRE LIVE Score, T20 World Cup 2024: The slow outfield has made sure that four more runs weren't added to that tally in this over. Stirling gave Arshdeep the charge second ball and punched it wonderfully through cover. The ball slows down in the outfield and the two batters would've been pretty disappointed about running just two runs there. Mohammed Siraj to bowl the second over, not Jasprit Bumrah.

India vs Ireland Live Score T20 World Cup 2024, IND vs IRE: What the captains said

India vs Ireland Live Score T20 World Cup 2024, IND vs IRE: Rohit said that he is happy with the way that the team's preparations went, they have been managing themselves in these new conditions. It has been challenging but "we are all professionals". He says that the pitch was similar during the warm-up match and so know what to expect a little bit. But he is aware that it is going to be different from what they are used to. But that's what the sport is. "Not sure about the conditions too much, so thought having a target in front of us would be good. Guys missing out are Kuldeep, Sanju, Jaiswal and one more," he said.

Stirling also says that he is happy with Ireland's preparations, most of which was in the Netherlands. "We've got plenty of matchwinners in our side, want them to show up on the day. We're looking to assess conditions early," he said.

India vs Ireland Live Score T20 World Cup 2024, IND vs IRE: India's 2007 T20 World Cup campaign started with a washout in Durban against Scotland. Their 2009 T20 World Cup started with a 25-run win over Bangladesh at The Oval. India beat Afghanistan by seven wickets to start off the 2010 T20 World Cup in Saint Lucia. They faced Afghanistan once again in the opening match of the 2012 tournament and beat them by 23 runs in Colombo. The 2014 T20 World Cup started with India facing Pakistan and beating them by seven wickets in in Mirpur. In 2016, India's campaign started with a 47-run win over New Zealand. The 2021 T20 World Cup's opening match is one that Indian fans would be wishing out of existence, a 10-wicket defeat to Pakistan. On the other hand, the starting game of the 2022 T20 World Cup is shown at least thrice a week on Star Sports, India beating Pakistan by four wickets at the MCG in a thriller to end all thrillers.

India vs Ireland Live Score T20 World Cup 2024, IND vs IRE: Competing against Virat Kohli is a terrible position to be in for any batter, let alone one who was born in this century and is less than a year into his international career. But Jaiswal has made a splash and then some in his brief career, quite convincingly showing that he is a future mainstay for the Indian team and potentially one who could go down as an all-time great as well.

India vs Ireland Live Score T20 World Cup 2024, IND vs IRE: Jasprit Bumrah made his comeback from a long-term injury in 2023 with a T20 series against Ireland, leading India in that particular rubber. Worryingly for practically every opposition that has faced India since, Bumrah has hit arguably the best form of his life across formats since then. It doesn't really matter if the pitches are suiting spinners when it comes to Bumrah.

India vs Ireland Live Score T20 World Cup 2024, IND vs IRE: Rishabh Pant as No.3?

India vs Ireland Live Score T20 World Cup 2024, IND vs IRE: The mystery around the opening position has also extended to one-down, considering Kohli has been India's No.3 for so many years. Rishabh Pant had walked out at No.3 in the warm-up match against Bangladesh and was easily the most impressive Indian batter on the day, smashing 53 in 32 balls and then retiring out.

India vs Ireland Live Score T20 World Cup 2024, IND vs IRE: Just as how they have kept everyone wondering about who will open the batting with Rohit Sharma, India have also kept Jasprit Bumrah's fast bowling partner under the wraps. There is almost no way one can predict if it will be Arshdeep Singh of Mohammed Siraj. Hardik Pandya is expected to serve as the third pacer and a sixth bowling option. Furthermore, both left-arm spinners, Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel, are likely to feature, along with Kuldeep Yadav.
