India vs Ireland, 2nd T20 worldwide

Kohli and Co. gear up for Ireland T20Is India vs Ireland 1st T20I: FPJ's dream XI for Team India and Ireland

Rohit Sharma inspired India to a 76-run thrashing of Ireland in the first of two Twenty20 internationals in Malahide.

Ireland, who recently played, and impressed, in the very first Test match in their history, will also want to make a statement in the series. The Ireland series are a vital one for India as they will look to adapt to overseas conditions and hope to get their winning combination right before the big test starting July. England have just hammered Australia in an ODI series and most of their top players are in sublime form. India captain Virat Kohli, a former top-ranked batsman will be looking to claw back from his eighth position while England's Jos Buttler would be looking to continue his ODI form and better his 26th position in T20Is.

India: Virat Kohli (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Lokesh Rahul, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Washington Sundar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Siddarth Kaul, Umesh Yadav.

The skipper Virat Kohli promoted Suresh Raina, Ms Dhoni and Hardik Pandya at No.3, No.4 and No.5 respectively.

Their last encounter in T20Is came when India defeated Ireland by 15 runs during the 2009 ICC World T20 in England.

Perhaps it was a marker of this crucial impending assignment that India made a decision to stay on and practice in London on Monday. India is the first elite opponent they will face in limited overs cricket after a long time, which will thereby spur them further going into the series.

Starting today India begin their tour of Ireland with the first T20 worldwide of the two-match series set to be played at 8:30pm IST.

This will also be a platform for the wrist-spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuvzendra Chahal, who shared about 30 wickets between them during India's tour of South Africa.

Ireland: Gary Wilson (captain), Andrew Balbirnie, Peter Chase, George Dockrell, Andy McBrine, Kevin O Brien, William Porterfield, Stuart Poynter, Boyd Rankin, James Shannon, Simi Singh, Paul Stirling, Stuart Thompson, Joshua Little.
