Team Analysis

The mighty Indian team will be led by Rohit Sharma in this 9th edition of T20 World Cup. With a solid top-order and a lethal pacing unit, the Indian team is here to win. The dynamic pace trio, comprising Arshdeep Singh, Yasprit Bumrah, and Mohammad Siraj is one of India’s greatest assets. Moreover, an abundance of talented all-rounders namely Hardik Pandaya, Axar Patel, and Ravindra Jadeja provide the Indian captain with numerous bowling options.

Perhaps, the most obvious advantage that the Indian team enjoys is a plentiful experience, especially of playing on Western pitches and associated weather conditions. Players like Virat Kholi, Rohit Sharma, and Khuldeep Yadav can guide the inexperienced and younger team members in difficult situations.

The Irish skipper, Paul Stirling will most likely prove to be one of the greatest strengths of their line-up. Stirling plays at a strike rate of 135.43, with an average of 27.60 in T20 Internationals. Moreover, Joshua Little, the 24-year-old pacer can also turn the game around for Ireland as he can produce quick dismissals and is known to perform exceptionally well under pressure. Other impact players from the Irish side include Andrew Balbirnie, Craig Young, and Harry Tector. Few spinning options are available for Ireland in this T20 World Cup. This might prove to be costly for the young team in situations where a difficult situation arises. 

Match Insights

Where the Indian team are clearly favorites to win their 1st clash of T20 World Cup 2024, the Irish team should not be taken lightly in account of the fact that Ireland just defeated the former T20 World Cup runner-ups, Pakistan. Ireland’s victory over Pakistan in a bilateral T20 has surely elevated their confidence and belief, and they can prove to be a real challenge for India. Shubman Gill, Arshdeep Singh, and Hardik Pandaya are expected to perform for India in this encounter. Whereas, from the Irish side, Josh Little, Harry Tector, and Curtis Campher are in high form to showcase their talents.


Cricket fans all around the globe are buzzing with exhilaration and excitement at the prospect of India’s first clash in this T20 World Cup. This match will serve as an indirect indicator of India’s T20 preparation and will send a warning to other Group A members namely Pakistan, USA, and Canada, of what they are up against.
