India Predicted XI
In the previous T-20 series against Sri Lanka in March; Kohli, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jaspreet Bumrah and Mahendra Singh Dhoni were rested. In the playing eleven, Rahul’s selection is being considered almost sure, while there will be a battle between Suresh Raina, Dinesh Karthik, and Manish Pandey for the middle order position. Raina can also be used as the team’s sixth bowler, so he is assuming as a top contender for this post.
Karthik, who is going in a superb form, will not want to be dismissed. In spite of having scored 255 runs in 8 T-20 matches at an average of 85, Manish Pandey can sit out.
India Expected XI- Virat Kohli(c), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Lokesh Rahul, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni, Hardik Pandya, Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Umesh Yadav

Ireland Predicted XI
Ireland has not played much against the team India. Three ODIs and one T20 matches have been played between the two teams. Ireland’s captain Gary Wilson, former captain William Porterfield and all-rounder Kevin O’Brien have a little bit experience of playing against the Indian team. In the meantime, also eyes will be set over Punjab-born 31-year-old off-spinner Simranjeet Singh. Ireland will pick top-6 batsman along with one all-rounder, Three Pacers, and a spinner.
Ireland Expected XI: Gary Wilson (c), Andrew Balbirnie, George Dockrell, Andrew McBrine, Kevin O’Brien, William Porterfield, Stuart Poynter, Boyd Rankin, Simi Singh, Paul Stirling, Stuart Thompson
