Betting Tips
  • Paul Stirling scored a century in the T20 Blast last month and he is well worth backing as Ireland’s highest run scorer in this opening game. With the ball, Josh Little has made a name for himself in white ball internationals over recent years. The left-arm pace bowler is our tip for Ireland’s top wicket taker against India.
  • Opener Ishan Kishan scored over 200 runs in the IT20 series against South Africa and he is our pick for India’s highest run scorer against Ireland. India’s pace bowlers should get some assistance from the pitch and the overhead conditions and we are backing Harshal Patel to be their top wicket taker in this match.
  • We saw Hardik Pandya relish the captaincy during the IPL this year and we are backing him to perform with bat and ball in this opening IT20. He is our prediction for the Player of The Match Award.

IRE vs IND 1st T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips

Ireland and India begin their two match IT20 series on Sunday afternoon and early evening at The Village, Malahide. This is the fourth time the sides have played each other in this format with India winning all previous games. Ireland’s last IT20 was in February against UAE with India playing out a 2-2 draw with South Africa at home earlier this month. Read on as we preview this IT20. This fixture begins at 16:30 local time.

Ireland have grown as an international force over the last two decades but still struggle against the top nations. This will be a massive test for the home side.

India have arrived in Ireland with a mixed squad including experienced names alongside some up and coming players. The conditions may be slightly different than at home but we still expect India to dominate.

IRE vs IND Match Toss Prediction

We expect the wicket to be a little unpredictable and for both skippers to choose to field first in this game. They will then be able to chase a score with the knowledge of how the pitch performs.

IRE vs IND Pitch Report

We do not expect a turning wicket and it would be a surprise if there was not any grass left on the wicket to assist the likes of Josh Little for the home side

Weather Report

Cloudy with a chance of showers early on in Malahide. The temperature will be at 16 degrees throughout the first IT20.

India Team News & Playing 11

IND Team News

Rishabh Pant captained India during the IT20 series against South Africa but has been rested for this series. Dinesh Karthik will keep wicket with Hardik Pandya leading the team. Although India are without many big names, they still have some exceptional players to call upon.

IND Key Players

  • Ishan Kishan- the 23 year old scored two half-centuries against South Africa. Although he was not at his best this year, he has impressed in the IPL over recent seasons.
  • Hardik Pandya- the 28 year old all-rounder has seen his stock rise rapidly after lifting the IPL as skipper at Gujarat Titans. He is comfortable as a finisher in the innings or batting higher up the order.
  • Harshal Patel- the right-arm fast medium bowler has been the standout performer with the ball in recent IPL tournaments. He took 4-25 against South Africa in one of the IT20s earlier this month.

IND Team Form

India looked weak in their opening IT20s against South Africa but turned the series around. They are always a dangerous team in any conditions in any format.

India Predicted Playing 11

Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan, Shreyas Iyer, Hardik Pandya (c), Dinesh Karthik (wk), Deepak Hooda, Harshal Patel, Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Avesh Khan, Yuzvendra Chahal

Ireland vs India Prediction

The Irish players and supporters will be very excited ahead of this fixture but we do not expect the team to be overawed by the occasion. With the India squad having played minimal warm-up games ahead of this series, this game will be Ireland’s best chance. However, we are backing India to win this opener.

Final Verdict

India are favorites to beat Ireland at the odds of 1.083
