India vs Ireland, 2nd T20I: Everything you need to know

Before departing to England earlier this week the Indian skipper felt not playing county could be a blessing in disguise as a break from the game has refreshed him completely

The first T20I between India and Ireland will be played on Wednesday, June 27, while the second and final match will be held on Friday, June 29.

India skipper Virat Kohli opted to not use in-form KL Rahul and Dinesh Karthik in the first T20. The match can also be streamed live on the SonyLiv app.

On the ground he scored a Test century last month, O'Brien claimed another two wickets with the ball - Rohit Sharma, for a two-ball duck, and Raina, for 69 - before Manish Pandey and Hardik Pandya took India well past 200.

Ireland likely XI for 2nd T20I: Paul Stirling, James Shannon, Andy Balbirnie, Simi Singh, Gary Wilson (c), Kevin O'Brien, Stuart Poynter (wk), Andy McBrine, George Dockrell, Boyd Rankin, Peter Chase.

Virat Kohli's Team India will begin a new season, which will have a lot of stern challenges for them. With the victory, India wrapped up the two-match series 2-0.

What will India's middle-order look like? The Indian skipper Virat Kohli opened the innings along with KL Rahul and the skipper went back to pavilion after scoring just 9 runs.

Kane to the rescue as England beat Tunisia
However, England laboured during periods of the second half as Tunisia sat deep in hope of holding out for a famous draw. However, England got the last laugh anyway when Kane scored from a corner once again to secure a dramatic 2-1 victory.

Ireland, who are ranked 14 places below India, were never really in the hunt after losing a wicket in the second over and finished on 132 for nine.

With Pandya as the third seaming option, it will also be interesting to see whether medium pacer Siddharth Kaul makes his India debut after an impressive stint in the Indian Premier League (IPL). It presents the opportunity for the batsmen who couldn't get the opportunity to bat.

Wrist-spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav will operate in tandem at the expense of young and talented Washington Sundar as Kohli would want his wreckers-in-chief to get a taste of the conditions early in the tour.

Going into the first T20I, Kohli and the team management will have a sweet dilemma over the selection of the playing XI.

Perhaps it was a marker of this crucial impending assignment that India made a decision to stay on and practice in London on Monday.

Porterfield (14) saw his middle stump knocked back by Yadav and Shannon (two) became Siddarth Kaul's first global T20 wicket.
