    Match Report

    India beats Ireland by 33 runs in 2nd T20I, secures series win

  • August 20, 2023 22:54
    India wins by 33 runs

    Bumrah closes off the game with an accurate final over. Wicket maiden for the Indian skipper. He adds the wicket of Adair to boot.

    Clinical performance from India and it has sealed the series win.

  • August 20, 2023 22:48
    IRE 148/7 in 19 overs

    On the slot for Adair from Praisdh and he smacks it straight back for a six.

    Prasidh with a slow ball next and Adair repeats the trick. Six More!!

    But Prasidh shows his experience to squeeze out four good balls to see out the over.

  • August 20, 2023 22:44
    IRE 135/7 in 18 overs

    Adair starts the 18th, against Arshdeep with a massive six. But he ropes it in for the rest of the over. Just a single from that as the left-arm quick bowls four dot balls on the trot.

  • August 20, 2023 22:40
    Bumrah strikes

    Skipper Bumrah brings himself in as he looks to put and end to the Irish fight.

    And he gets his reward in the form of McCarthy’s wicket. Exceptional over from Bumrah, just four runs in that over.

  • August 20, 2023 22:32
    Balbirnie falls

    Back of a good length from Arshdeep and Balbinie somehow manages to get underneath it and launches it over mid wicket for a six.

    But his heroics soon come to an end as he edges a wide yorker from Arshdeep to Samson.

    Andy Balbirnie c †Samson b Arshdeep Singh 71 (52b 5x4 4x6)

  • August 20, 2023 22:28
    IRE 115/5 in 15 overs

    Prasidh Krishna with his third. He has been the best of Indian bowlers tonight. Short and into the body from Prasidh. After missing out on a few, Balbirnie gets hold off one. Pulled deep into mid wicket stands. SIX!!! And that brings up the 50-run partnership.

    But India strikes back with a run out. Dockrell tries to go for a second and is caught outside the crease.

    George Dockrell run out (Ravi Bishnoi/†Samson)

  • August 20, 2023 22:21
    IRE 102/4 in 14 overs

    Washington Sundar with his second over. He keeps it wide on the off side, away from Balbirnie’s arc.

    Sundar draws a mishit from Balbirnie. But Gaikwad drops an easy chance in the deep.

  • August 20, 2023 22:17
    IRE 94/4 In 13 overs

    Bumrah back into the attack. He gives away just three runs in the over. The game is shifting more into India’s corner.

    Bishnoi with his last over. Balbirnies starts with a boundary and soon gets to his fifty. Dockrell adds a six with the last ball of the over.

  • August 20, 2023 22:09
    IRE 77/4 in 11 overs

    Balbirinie lays into Dube. Makes room on the leg side before hitting it over covers for a six. Next he goes over fine leg to add another six.

  • August 20, 2023 22:05
    Bishnoi strikes again

    Another over from Bishnoi. He keeps the pressure on and Campher is the one to crack. He attempts a reverse hit and can’t Dube at backward point.

    Curtis Campher c Dube b Ravi Bishnoi 18 (17b 0x4 1x6)

  • August 20, 2023 22:01
    IRE 57/3 in 9 overs

    Dube gets an over. Starts by giving a double. But keeps it tight for the rest of the over. Just two singles from the next five balls.

  • August 20, 2023 21:57
    IRE 53/3 in 8 overs

    Bishnoi continues as India tries to keeps the pressure on the Irish batters.

    Campher is the first to counter. He slog sweeps Bishnoi for a massive six. That should provide Ireland with some confidence.

  • August 20, 2023 21:53
    IRE 42/3 in 7 overs

    Washington Sundar introduced. Balbirnies pumps his for a couple of boundaries on either side of the stumps to provide some life to the Irish chase.

  • August 20, 2023 21:47
    Bishnoi strikes straightaway

    Spin introduced in the form of Ravi Bishnoi and he strikes with his second ball.

    It is a googly and Tector fails to read it and has his stumps rearranged.

    Harry Tector b Ravi Bishnoi 7 (7b 1x4 0x6)

  • August 20, 2023 21:44
    IRE 24/2 in 5 overs

    Arshdeep and Prasidh keep things tight. Balbirnie and Tector unable to break free.

    DROPPED! Tough chance for Gaikwad at extra cover. He leapt high, but couldn’t hold onto it.

  • August 20, 2023 21:36
    Prasidh strikes again

    Another short ball, another top edge and another catch. Tucker’s stay lasts just two balls. Ireland already two down.

    Lorcan Tucker c Gaikwad b Prasidh Krishna 0 (3b 0x4 0x6)

  • August 20, 2023 21:34
    Stirling first to fall

    Prasidh Krishna into the attack and he strikes almost immediately.

    Stiling tries to go after a short ball and can get only a top edge. Arshdeep moves in from deep fine leg to complete a safe catch.

    Paul Stirling c Arshdeep Singh b Prasidh Krishna 0 (4b 0x4 0x6)

  • August 20, 2023 21:30
    IRE 18/0 in 2 overs

    Arshdeep Singh from the other end. Starts with a wide on the off side. Then drifts onto the pads and Balbirinie flicks it away for a four. Arshdeep drifts wide and Balbirnie whacks it over cover for another boundary. Not the ideal start for India.

  • August 20, 2023 21:25
    IRE 8/0 in 1 over

    Bumrah with the first over for India. He gives away a wide-four to give Ireland its first runs.

    He strikes Balbernie in front. The umpire doesn’t relent. India reviews, but the umpire’s call favours the Irish batter.

  • August 20, 2023 21:09
    IND 185/5 in 20 overs

    Adair gifts Dube a full toss on the pads and he duly flicks it over the fine leg fence. SIX!!

    Full length from Adair next and Dube launches it for another six. Single taken next. Rinku Singh on strike. Again on the pad and again smashed out of the ground. Third six of the over. Adair has his revenge though. Draws a top edge from Rinku Singh and it is caught. Rinku Singh c Young b Adair 38 (21b 2x4 3x6)

    Ireland needs 186 to win the second T20.

  • August 20, 2023 21:02
    IND 165/4 in 19 overs

    Wide yorker attempted by McCarthy and Rinku manages to slash it over deep third man for a much-needed boundary for India. Next up, McCarthy bowls a slow ball and Rinku picks it up immediately. Deposits in the long on stands. Finally, some momentum for India.

    Two wides follow. Little goes wide next and Rinku carves it over covers for a SIX!!

  • August 20, 2023 20:54
    IND 143/4 in 18 overs

    Adair with his third over. Rinku and Dube still can’t get into their hitting rhythm. Another over without boundaries for India.

  • August 20, 2023 20:49
    IND 137/4 in 17 overs

    Shivam Dube and Rinku Singh will look to give India a final push. At one stage of the innings, it looked like India was on the way to 180 or more. It looks unlikely now with Rinku and Dube taking their time to settle down.

  • August 20, 2023 20:43
    Gaikwad falls

    Gaikwad tries another big shot. This time, he can’t get the connection right. It is a skier and Tector completes a tough chance.

    Ruturaj Gaikwad c Tector b McCarthy 58 (43b 6x4 1x6)

  • August 20, 2023 20:36
    Fifty up for Gaikwad

    Ben White continues and Rinku Singh takes him on first ball. Swept for a boundary towards the midwicket direction.

    Gaikwad adds another boundary with a sweep shot and that is his 50. He celebrates it by launching White over long on for a massive six.

  • August 20, 2023 20:34
    IND 113/3 in 14 overs

    Rinku Singh is the new batter for India. This is his first international innings. Steady start from the left hander. Craig Young continues on the Irish resurgence with a tight over.

  • August 20, 2023 20:28
    Samson bowled!

    Sanju Samson tries to take on Ben White. It was a tad short on the off and Samson tries to take it on. He only manages an inside edge which disturbs the stumps.

    Sanju Samson b White 40 (26b 5x4 1x6)

  • August 20, 2023 20:25
    IND 104/2 in 12 overs

    Gaikwad takes a single and it is hundred up for India.

    Young pulls it back for Ireland with a tight over. He gives away just five runs from the 12th over.

  • August 20, 2023 20:16
    IND 99/2 in 11 overs

    Little into the attack. Four!! Full and wide, Samson lofts it over the offside for a boundary.

    Little repeats the ball and Samson repeats the shot. FOUR MORE!!

    Little now attempts a wide yorker and Samson gets his bat onto it. Third four on a row! A dot ball follows. Little now goes short and Samson pulls it emphatically to the stands. This is the over India wanted.

  • August 20, 2023 20:11
    IND 81/2 in 10 overs

    White to continue. Quiet over from the leg-spinner. Only five singles conceded.

  • August 20, 2023 20:05
    IND 67/2 in 8 overs

    Young into the attack. Four!! Slightly short and Gaikwad pulls it in front of square for a boundary. Four again! Same ball, pulled through midwicket this time. 12 runs of the over.

  • August 20, 2023 20:03
    IND 55/2 in 7 overs

    Leg spinner Ben White introduced.

    Nothing fancy from the Indian batters. Last ball of the over, Gaikwad latches onto a loosener before pumping it to mid wicket for a boundary.

  • August 20, 2023 20:00
    IND 47/2 in 6 overs

    Josh Little back into the attack. Samson takes a single first ball.

    What happened in the first T20I?

    Pace sensation Jasprit Bumrah ticked all the boxes on his much-anticipated return to lead India to a two-run win over Ireland by DLS Method in a rain-interrupted first T20I of the three-match series, here on Friday.

    Leading the side on his return after an 11-month injury layoff, Bumrah claimed 2 for 24 with nine dot balls and formed a formidable pair with T20I debutant Prasidh Krishna (2/32) to restrict Ireland to 139 for 7 after opting to bowl.

    Things looked bleak for the hosts after they were down 59 for 6 in the 11th over but their No 8 Barry McCarthy produced an amazing recovery, blazing his way to a 33-ball 51 not out (4x4, 4x6) to lift their total to a respectable 139 for 7.

    Buoyed by Jasprit Bumrah’s impressive return, fancied India will hope for better weather and a chance for the team’s young batters to prove their mettle in the second T20 International against Ireland here on Sunday.

    After the Bumrah-led bowling attack impressed to restrict Ireland to 139 for seven in the series opener, incessant rain denied the middle-order batters an opportunity to prove their worth.

    India was declared winner by two runs via the Duckworth/Lewis method and both the teams will hope that they get to play a full match in the second game.
