Match Preview

India will square off against Ireland in the Group A match of the T20 World Cup 2024 at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York. As inaugural champions, India will be looking to make a strong start to their T20WC campaign. However, they face a resurgent Ireland team, known for their rapid improvements on the international stage. India’s recent trip to Ireland proved to be a challenging encounter, adding an extra layer of intrigue to this opening Group A match.

Pitch Report

The Nassau County International Cricket Stadium features drop-in pitches imported from Australia, making it an untested ground in T20 Internationals. During a warm-up match prior to the tournament, the pitch exhibited erratic behavior, including variable bounce and a lack of pace early in the innings. Consequently, a total exceeding 180 runs is expected to be highly competitive when India faces Ireland.

Team Analysis


Captain Rohit Sharma is set to open the innings with Virat Kohli, forming a formidable opening pair. Middle-order duties will be handled by Suryakumar Yadav and Rishabh Pant, ensuring depth in batting. The bowling attack, led by Jasprit Bumrah, features a mix of pace and spin with Kuldeep Yadav, Arshdeep Singh, and Ravindra Jadeja expected to deliver crucial overs.
