IND vs IRE Probable Best Players of the Match

Probable Best Batter of the Match:

Rohit Sharma has been entering the fray with an attacking mindset as evident in ODI World Cup 2023. The Indian captain can bat deep into the game if he settles in. With Nassau’s deck aiding the slow bowlers and spinners mainly, he is expected to apply a subdued approach at the start before unleashing his class.

Probable Best Bowler of the Match:

Arshdeep Singh’s recent form and his adaptability on challenging pitches make him a key player for India in the upcoming T20 World Cup match against Ireland at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium. His success with the Punjab Kings in the IPL 2024, particularly on the slow Mullanpur pitch, highlights his ability to perform on surfaces that assist slower bowlers. This experience will be invaluable on the sluggish Nassau pitch.
