IND vs IRE 2024

India vs Ireland is Group A Fixture and both of the teams will play their first matches:  Here’s a look at the Playing XI predictions, head-to-head stats, pitch, and weather updates ahead of the match.

Pitch Report :  A sluggish outfield, vast square boundaries and drop-in strips of variable bounce is in the stadium but considering the recent matches the pitch is not that even and the bounce is also sometimes low or high.

In the first match at this venue, Sri Lanka was bowled out for 77, highlighting the challenging wicket.

Expect low bounce and slow nature, posing a great challenge for Indian batters.



Three of India’s matches will be played in Nassau County International Stadium against Ireland , Pakistan and hosts United States and then to the Caribbean  for the super 8s where top 2 teams from each group will compete.


India’s predicted XI: Rohit Sharma (c), Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Sanju Samson/Axar Patel, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Arshdeep Singh.



Indian player to lookout for: Hardik Pandya has been in great form recently and how he performs will somehow indicate how india does in this Tournament. At the Cantiague Park nets on Monday, Hardik pandya spent considerable time bowling to SKY , Kohli and Rohit.  If he bowls atleast three over then india could look upto play all rounder Shivam Dube and also include an extra spin option.


Key Questions for India

Opening Pair: Will it be Virat Kohli or Yashasvi Jaiswal alongside captain Rohit Sharma?



Wicketkeeper-Batter: Rishabh Pant or Sanju Samson? Pant’s unpredictable shot-making gives him an edge.


Bowling Combination: Stick with Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja as the spin duo. Jasprit Bumrah and either Mohammed Siraj or Arshdeep Singh will lead the pace attack.
