India vs Ireland Prediction & Tips

IND vs IRE Match Prediction & Betting Tips, T20 World Cup 2024

India will take on Ireland in the 8th game of the T20 World Cup 2024. The game will be played at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium, New York and will start at 8:00 PM IST on June 5

India will be looking for a winning start to their T20 World Cup campaign. The team comes into the game after a thumping win over Bangladesh in the warm-up game. India are overwhelmingly favourites to win the game but Ireland cannot be taken lightly. They are a team well capable to pull off an upset. The Irish defeated Pakistan in one of the T20Is not so long ago and they would feel if they play well, they could beat India as well.

However, the Rohit Sharma led side would see it as a relatively easy game. The biggest strength for India in the mega event will be their spinners. We have seen the conditions being favourable for spinners and India having great spinners will have an advantage. Also, Virat Kohli will be key in these conditions. He is someone who can hold the innings together and take the team to a 160-170 total which should be enough for them to defend.

IND vs IRE Match Toss Prediction

Captains will be keen to chase. The pitch won’t be easiest to bat and there is a chance to bowl out the team batting first for a low score.

IND vs IRE Pitch Report

This pitch at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium is low and slow. It helps the fast bowlers with the new ball and spinners will also be successful here. A score of 170 should be a winning total here.

New York Weather Report

There will be some cloud cover but rain should stay away from the game. The temperature will range between 20 and 27 degrees.

India Team News & Playing 11

IND Team News

India have a few selection conundrum. They will have to take a call if they want to open with Virat Kohli or Yashasvi Jaiswal. The chances of Jaiswal getting a game and Kohli playing at No.3 are high. Also, India could play three spinners given the conditions.

IND Key Players

  • Virat Kohli – Kohli will be key for India in the T20 World Cup 2024. He was in great form in the IPL and scored over 700 runs, bagging the Orange Cap. The conditions is not the easiest to bat and players who are technically sound will be successful here. Also, Kohli don’t need to strike at 180 in these conditions. Rotating the strike and picking odd boundaries will be enough on these wickets.
  • Rishabh Pant – Pant had a great run in the IPL 2024 and scored over 445 runs. He also scored a brilliant fifty in tough conditions in the warm up game. Pant is someone who can take the game away within a blink of an eye. He is also very good against the spinners so the odds of him doing well are high.
  • Ravindra Jadeja – Jadeja did not have a great IPL, however, the conditions are perfect for him to have a great tournament. The spinners are getting the ball to grip and turn and Jadeja can be very dangerous in these conditions. 
  • Jasprit Bumrah – Bumrah will lead India’s pace attack. He is one of the best bowlers in this format of the game and India will be resting a lot of hopes on him with the new as well as the old ball. 

IND Team Form

India did not play a lot of cricket in the build-up to the game as the players were busy in the IPL. They last played a T20I series against Afghanistan and won 3-0.

India Predicted Playing 11

Yashasvi Jaiswal, Rohit Sharma (C), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj

Ireland Team News & Playing 11

IRE Team News

Ireland have a very settled unit and they do not make a lot of changes to the team. The team should play the same XI that featured in the tri-series involving Netherlands and Scotland.

IRE Key Players

  • Andrew Balbirnie – Andrew Balbirnie did not have a great series against Netherlands and Scotland but on a big stage, Ireland will need their best player to step up. Balbirnie needs to have a great tournament for Ireland to make an impact.
  • Paul Stirling –  Paul Stirling can be inconsistent but he can be the game changer. He is someone who can score quick runs in the powerplay and that will set the team up for a decent score. 
  • Harry Tector – Harry Tector is all class and he would be looking for big runs in the T20 World Cup. He failed in the T20I series against Pakistan and the following tri-series but he can be backed to have a good T20 World Cup.
  • Mark Adair – He is the leading pacer of the Ireland attack and one who has shown remarkable consistency over the years. Adair is also very handy with the bat down the order.

IRE Team Form

Ireland last featured in the T20I tri series involving Scotland and Netherlands and won comprehensively. 

Ireland Predicted Playing 11

Andrew Balbirnie, Paul Stirling (c), Lorcan Tucker (wk), Harry Tector, Curtis Campher, George Dockrell, Gareth Delany, Mark Adair, Barry McCarthy, Craig Young, Benjamin White
