IRE vs IND: Match Preview:

India levelled the 5-match T20I series against South Africa 2-2 after being 2-0 down in the series after the first two matches. Ishan Kishan was the top performer for team India with 206 runs to his name in 5 innings at a strike rate of 150.36 while averaging 41.20. 

Hardik Pandya continued his form from IPL 2022 and was the second-highest run-scorer for team India and the third-highest scorer overall with 117 runs in 4 innings, averaging an impeccable 58.50 with a strike rate of 153.94. 

The squad against Ireland has only three different names from the squad against South Africa - KL Rahul is missing out due to injury while Rishabh Pant & Shreyas Iyer are in England along with the test squad to prepare for the much-awaited final test between India and England on July 1st at Edgbaston. The trio has been replaced by Suryakumar Yadav and Sanju Samson, who are making their comeback while Rahul Tripathi has been finally handed an opportunity. 

The bowling unit has been retained and performed well enough in the 4 T20Is. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Avesh Khan & Harshal Patel handled the pace department brilliantly, while spinner Yuzvendra Chahal also performed when required. The pacers are expected to continue the performance while Umran Malik & Arshdeep Singh remain benched, waiting for their chance to make their team India debut.
