Virat Kohli says flexible batting order can 'surprise' India's opponents


Virat Kohli-led Team India outplayed Ireland in the first of two Twenty20 Internationals as the visitors scored 208/5 before restricting the hosts for 132/9 in Dublin on Wednesday.

Ireland captain Gary Wilson is confident his side will get closer to India in Friday's second Twenty20 global in Dublin.

India vs Ireland 2nd T20I match live streaming will be available on SonyLiv.

Ireland: Gary Wilson (c), Andrew Balbirnie, Peter Chase, George Dockrell, Joshua Little, Andy McBrine, Kevin O Brien, William Porterfield, Stuart Poynter, Boyd Rankin, James Shannon, Simi Singh, Paul Stirling, Stuart Thompson. The English summer is going to be a big test for the Asian giants who have dominated across all three formats over the last few years.

After they leave Ireland, India have three Twenty20 matches against England before they face them in both one-day global and Test series.

India's first-wicket partnership underpinned their innings, Rohit and Dhawan finding and often clearing the boundary rope easily as they put Ireland's bowlers to the sword.

After a brilliant performance in IPL 2018, KL Rahul got another chance in limited over cricket and Ajinkya Rahane's omission from the ODI squad means that he is once again a contender for the number four spot when the three-match series against England begins on July 12.

Predicted playing XI: Kohli (c) Rohit, Dhawan, Rahul, Raina, Dhoni (wk), Pandya, Kuldeep, Chahal, Umesh, Kaul.

On the other hand, Ireland will need to work on their batting, which fell like nine pins to India's wrist spin twins - Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav.
