The Indian cricket team will play a three-match T20I series against Ireland from August 18. This time the team will be touring Ireland led by Jasprit Bumrah. The Indian team also toured Ireland last year, but back then the team’s captain was Hardik Pandya. The team that went to Ireland last year was very different from this year and there were a total of 12 changes in the team compared to last year.

The Indian team traveled to Ireland last year with 17 players and the team’s captain was Hardik Pandya and Bhuvneshwar Kumar was the team’s vice-captain. That year, the selectors announced a 15-man roster. Neither Hardik Pandya nor fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar are on the team this year. While Jasprit Bumrah was made captain. And Ruturaj Gaikwad will be the vice-captain.

Only five players from this team were there

There are only five players from this Ireland series that will feature in the upcoming series. Ruturaj Gaikwad, Sanju Samson, Ravi Bishnoi, Arshdeep Singh and Avesh Khan are also the players of this series. This means that India added 10 more players to the team for this series.

The upcoming Ireland series starts on August 18th, followed by the second T20I on August 20th and the final T20I on August 23rd.

Big changes in the team

Deepak Hooda, who scored a Century in the second T20 against Ireland in 2022, will no longer be part of the Indian team. He became the fourth Indian batsman to score 100 points in the shortest format but has struggled for form ever since. In particular, some other major changes were made in the batting and bowling departments. Batsmen like Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Venkatesh Iyer, Rahul Tripathi, Dinesh Karthik and Akshar Patel (all-rounder) will also not be in this series. There are now quite a few bowlers who don’t fly to Ireland, including Harshal Patel, Umran Malik, Yuzvendra Chahal and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

India squad for T20I series vs Ireland:

Jasprit Bumrah (Captain), Ruturaj Gaikwad (Vice-Captain), Yashasvi Jaiswal, Tilak Verma, Rinku Singh, Sanju Samson (wicket-keeper), Jitesh Sharma (wicket-keeper), Shivam Dubey, Washington Sundar, Shahbaz Ahmed, Ravi Bishnoi, Famous One Krishna, Arshdeep Singh, Mukesh Kumar, Avesh Khan.
