India could be looking to test their bench strength which gives Ireland a great chance to grab a consolation victory. Nevertheless, the hosts have looked out of depth in the two games at the top of the order and will target some improvements. The match handicap has been beaten by Ireland in both the matches in this series and that could be the way to go once again.

  • Ireland have lost 6 of their last 7 matches at this venue (T20Is)
  • Ireland beat the handicap of 6.5 wickets or 33.5 runs in 6 of their last 7 matches here (T20Is)
  • India have won each of their 7 matches against Ireland (T20Is)
  • Craig Young has taken 2 wickets in 6 of his last 9 matches (T20Is)

Head to Head


Ireland have played India in seven T20Is so far with no luck to date. They have lost all seven matches, with six of those coming at this venue.

Ireland Form


Ireland failed to get going in either match and were never in the reckoning for a win – barring that first match where they could have sneaked a victory thanks to DLS.

Captain Andrew Balbirnie would be worried about his team’s batting, as his aggregate of 76 remains the side’s best. Low scores from Harry Tector (9 & 7) have been a core concern.

With the ball, Craig Young’s three wickets have been the leading factor for the Irish, who have otherwise struggled to hold their own.

Ireland Team News


The likes of Ross Adair and Gareth Delany could fancy a game for Ireland, as the series is already lost.

India Form


India have impressed in the two matches with the form and fitness of returning players like Jasprit Bumrah and Prasidh Krishna crucial for their plans.

With the Asia Cup and Asian Games on the anvil, it is the fringe players who will fancy a game to showcase their mettle. Ruturaj Gaikwad (77) has been the standout player for India with the bat.

Bowling has been about the pacers with Jasprit Bumrah and Prasidh Krishan taking four wickets each. There were four in the series for Ravi Bishnoi as well.

India Team News


India could be contemplating giving a game for the likes of Jitesh Sharma, Mukesh Kumar, Avesh Khan and Shahbaz Ahmed.

Verdict

Ireland couldn’t quite live up to the expectations as they were brushed aside easily by an Indian side that is wearing a different look. Bumrah could be forced to take some difficult team decisions, but even those may not make Ireland favourites to win here. I am backing the hosts to beat the handicap though, which is set at 6.5 wickets and 28.5 runs for this match. I am also putting a small wager on the Irish bowler Craig Young to be amongst the wickets with at least two.
