India vs Ireland 3rd T20I Highlights – 23rd August 2023


“Periods of good cricket… in patches. A lot of positives but its about finishing those games on. India always gives high-quality good cricket when they come here. (Competition for places in Ireland side) Would’ve been good to get a game today and give few fresh faces a chance. Journey towards T20 World Cup continues. Its a build up for 10 months.”

Jasprit Bumrah is the Player of the Series:

“It was frustrating waiting for a game to happen. This was something we did not see coming because the weather was fine earlier. It’s been a lot of fun (captaining) and an honour captaining them. They were enthusiastic and eager even when rain was around. (Wanting to captain) I don’t think about that [injury.] When you get a chance to captain your side, you always take it. As a cricketer you always enjoy responsibility. (Injury issues…) All good no complaints.”

Pitch and weather: Wednesday is expected to be mildly sunny in patches, with more of cloud cover and windiness and some rain expected. The temperature is expected to settle just under 20 degrees Celsius. There are more chances of rain later in the evening especially so, with a 3pm local time start, we should get a completed game squeezed in, even if it is interrupted.
