A wonderful start full of drama aggression and some happy tension to Kohli. Rohit & Dhawan started it all after losing the toss, team wa put into bat and a 160 odd opening stand half century by shikky boy & 97 by Rohit set the first match on fire and then comes Kuldeep and sweeps the match with a 4 fer, Incredible stuff. Meanwhile Irish guys looked disappointed but second game might go into their favour. The major shock came as Dinesh Karthik expelled form the eleven and Rahul not getting a chance again. Another highlight was Virat’s zero runs plus his batting position which was surprising indeed. Hope India seals another series with ease.
Pitch: The match is to be played at the Malhide Cricket Ground, Dublin. The pitch on which the 1st T20I was played will be used for the 2nd too. So, expect a bit help for slower bowlers.
