IRE vs IND 2nd T20 : Key Players
India demolished Ireland in the first T20I that was played yesterday at the Malahide. here are the IRE vs IND 2nd T20 Key Players for Dream11. The Asian giant played Ireland in a T20I after a long gap of 10 years and the difference between playing standards was obvious. The hosts almost never had a chance in the match, and it ended up as a one-sided drubbing.
However, the good part for the Green nation is that we always start a new game with a clean slate. They nevertheless have one more chance to prove their mettle and challenge the IPL Champions. These two nations shall play their second and last T20I tomorrow at the same venue.
Leading to the match, here are a few key players for IRE vs IND 2nd T20 –
Rohit Sharma :
‘Form is temporary, Talent is permanent’ is conceivably the most suitable phrase to define Rohit Sharma. After thrashing Sri Lanka in the home series, Rohit Sharma lost his form in South Africa and failed gloriously in the IPL 2018 season too.
The maverick right-hander blasted right back into his groove as he went on to smash 97 in the first T20I yesterday. The innings included six fours and five sixes and he nearly registered his third T20I century. No other Indian batsman has even scored two.
Rohit will love to continue on his merry way and perhaps go one step ahead by scoring the century this time around. Knowing Rohit, him getting out lazily on the first ball will not be a surprise. Yet India will rely on this Champion batsman.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar :
In the English conditions, India’s most lethal weapon will be without a doubt, Bhuvneshwar Kumar. His ability to swing the ball early with control is the edge that India needs to keep the opposition quiet. The bowler has been in good form.
Yesterday in the T20I, Bhuvi came out to be the most economical bowler on the show. He recorded the figures of 16/0 in four overs. The pressure built on the Irish team was severe, and they soon crumbled against the spin wizardry of Chahal-Kuldeep.
Bhuvneshwar had a good IPL 2018 and did well for Sunrisers Hyderabad. However, he will like to get back into the wickets department. He has bowled economically but he has not picked as many wickets as he would like.
Both Rohit and Bhuvi are the Key Players Ire vs Ind 2nd t20 for india but Virat Kohli’s side have KL Rahul, Siddarth Kaul and Umesh Yadav in the squad so there is also probability they can give chance to bench players.
Kevin O’Brien :
The all-rounder is perhaps the most talked about Irish Cricketer. He has been at the forefront of many Irish milestones. K O’Brien scored the fastest World Cup century in 2011 versus England to shock them. He also scored the first Test century for Ireland recently.
Being famous for his penchant to perform at the big stage and his attacking batting that suits the T20 format makes him a dangerous prospect. As we know, one individual brilliance is enough to take away the game in T20s.
In the mammoth chase yesterday, Kev was slotted at a lower position than where he should have batted. Coming in to bat at 85/4, KOB started with a huge six but was soon out for 10(5). He will have one more chance to perform in the second T20I.
Paul Stirling :
The 27-year old is a world-class talent without a doubt. Opening the innings for Ireland, he has played a few extraordinary knocks. His strike rate in T20Is is a formidable 136.
Off the few chances that Stirling has received to perform against the major nations, he has not been able to shine majestically. None of his eight T2OI fifties has come against a strong nation.
Yesterday, chasing a tall total of 209, a lot of Irish expectations hinged on a flying start from Stirling. However, he skied a shortish ball from Bumrah and was back on his way after scoring only 1 run from three balls. Ireland will expect better from the veteran this time around.
