Ahead of travelling to Ireland, pacer Prasidh Krishna bowled at full tilt for Mysuru Warriors against Hubli Tigers in the KSCA Maharaja Trophy T20 tournament here on Sunday.
Prasidh is scheduled to leave for Ireland on August 15 from Mumbai along with other Indian players including captain Jasprit Bumrah.
India will play three T20Is against Ireland on August 18, 20 and 23 at Malahide, Dublin.
However, Prasidh utilised the KSCA T20 tournament to hone his skills and further tune his body to the demands of the game before his departure.
The right-arm pacer delivered two overs of full intensity and pace, and grabbed a wicket while conceding 13 runs.
Prasidh clean bowled his Karnataka teammate Luvnith Sisodia for a three-ball duck to underline his readiness to tackle bigger responsibilities.
However, his spell was not enough for Warriors as Tigers registered a nine-wicket victory in a rain-hit match at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium.
Prasidh had also bowled in the KSCA T20 tournament for G. Kasturirangan Memorial Trophy tournament last month.
He took four wickets (4-0-36-4) in that match for Mount Joy Cricket Club against Sir Syed Cricketers.
Prasidh is coming back after a prolonged injury lay-off that saw him missing the action for nearly a year.
The Karnataka pacer last played for India in an ODI match against Zimbabwe on August 20, 2022.
Earlier this year, the 27-year-old Prasidh was ruled out of IPL 2023 with a lumbar stress fracture. He was recuperating at the NCA post the surgery.
