Ireland vs India 1st T20I: Weather Forecast for IRE vs IND: Weather near Dublin on June 26
Rain is expected to play a spoilsport in the first T20I between Ireland and India.
Ireland will be hosting India in the first T20I at Dublin’s Malahide Cricket Club Ground on Sunday, June 26. Despite playing in their own backyard, the Irish will be in for a tough time as they face a spirited Indian team who have been in splendid form after the conclusion of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 in the UAE last November. At the same time, it also needs to be noted that the hosts have not played against tough opponents in the last few months.
India on the other hand will be led by stand-in captain Hardik Pandya with vice-captain KL Rahul out of action for a prolonged period of time due to a groin injury. Even wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant is a part of the England-bound Indian squad which means that either veteran Dinesh Karthik or youngster Ishan Kishan could don the keeper’s gloves.
India who have fielded a second-string side once again would be hoping for some exceptional performances from their players in this series. The key focus will be on the emerging speedsters, Umran Malik and Arshdeep Singh as the auditions for the T20 World Cup squad get underway.
The Indian team can heave a sigh of relief as of now due to the fact that their middle-order looks sorted with Suryakumar Yadav, Dinesh Karthik, and Hardik Pandya to bolster their batting order. At the same time, not only is there a dearth of spinners but even the pacers’ availability is in abundance, and in short, there is a cut-throat competition in the bowling department which means that the players featuring in the playing XI in this series must make the most of their chances in all ways possible.
Here’s a look at how the weather will behave during IRE vs IND clash:
