India takes on Ireland in the second T20I in Dubin on June 28 Tuesday. The Hardik Pandya-led side won the first T20I by seven wickets and are favourites to complete a whitewash. India head to England for a full-fledged tour after the series against Ireland.

This is Hardik Pandya‘s debut series as India captain. Meanwhile, Ireland is being led by Andrew Balbirnie. The BCCI has announced a 17-member squad while the Irish Cricket board announced a 14-member squad for the two-match series.

India chased down 109 with 16 balls to spare with Deepak Hooda scoring an unbeaten 47. Ishan Kishan (26) and Hardik (24) also got runs. Umran Malik made his T20I debut for India.

There is a scope for a few changes in the second T20I with Ruturaj Gaikwad picking up a calf niggle before India’s chase began. In case he misses out Rahul Tripathi can take his place and make his T20I debut for India. Arshdeep Singh can also make his T20I debut.

Ireland, on the other hand, would expect a better performance from their batters. They lost three early wickets inside the powerplay after which Harry Tector’s repair job (64 off 33) was not enough for the side. He added a 50-run stand with Lorcan Tucket to take Ireland to 108/4 which did not prove to be enough. Changes can be expected from both teams in the second T20I.
