The Indian team will start the tour of Ireland from August 18th. Team India, led by Jasprit Bumrah, will contest a three-game T20 series here. For this series, most of the players who have played consistently with Team India have not been selected and are expected to play at the Asian Cup and World Cup as well. In such a situation, young players like Ruturaj Gaikwad, Rinku Singh and Jitesh Sharma will be featured in this team. At the same time, Sanju Samson will be the only experienced batsman on this team. In addition, Shivam Dubey has returned to the Indian team after around three and a half years. Both Shubman Gill and Ishaan Kishan are not in this series, which means there may be changes in the opening pair again.

Rohit Sharma, the regular captain of the Indian team, has not competed in a T20 International since the 2022 T20 World Cup. In such a situation, only Shubman Gill and Ishaan Kishan could be seen early in the inning in his absence. Ishan Kishan was dropped after failing in the first two T20Is against the West Indies. After that, Yashasvi Jaiswal got a spot on Team India and started the inning with Shubman Gill. The pair failed in the third and fifth T20, but in the fourth T20 International the pair caught everyone’s attention by sharing a 165-year partnership. After these two combinations, a third different combination can now be seen in the Ireland series.

Who will open in Ireland?

Ruturaj Gaikwad and Yashasvi Jaiswal are the opening players in Team India’s squad for this tour. There is no such player who regularly acts as a starter. Ruturaj made his debut for Team India in 2021 and has only had 9 T20 caps since then. He has 135 runs in 8 innings, including a fifty. Yashasvi Jaiswal made his T20I debut on the West Indies Tour and played a brilliant innings of over 80 in his second match. Now it will be very interesting to see how much the pair Ruturaj Gaikwad and Yashasvi Jaiswal do for India on the Ireland Tour causes a sensation.
