Underdog ‘Ireland’ might give tough competition

Since T20 competition is always known for its fickle nature, where things change at any time, there is no team we can label as the underdog. Considering the Irish side, they recently performed really well against top-tier teams like Pakistan. They even won convincingly in the first T20I against the Pakistan side.

Speaking about Lorcan Tucker. He is a player who can change things for the Irish side. Especially when it comes to providing a solid base and hitting sixes in the last few overs. Batting in the top order, he is surely a player whom India will look to dismiss early.

Hitter Balbirnie & Wicket taker Young is also a challange

Experienced Andrew Balbirnie, known for smashing sixes, has played 68 T20I games, mostly as an opener. He has scored 1196 runs in these games. As mentioned, he is known for his big hits and knows how to utilize the first six overs. He can pose a challenge to India’s bowlers in the batting powerplay.

Apart from the batters, the Irish side also has one brilliant right-arm pacer in the form of Craig Young. As mentioned, he is a wicket-taking option for the Irish side, known for his ability to make the ball swing both ways. His role in the first six overs is going to be really important in the World Cup.

Speaking about his T20I stats, in 62 matches, he has taken 68 wickets with a brilliant economy of 8.04. Bowling in the batting powerplay, he could also be a threat for India.
