On match day, the rain went on for a long time. When the umpires came on to check the pitch, they recognized that the outfield was too damp to play. Finally, the decision was taken to abandon the match. Both captains, Jusprit Bumrah and Paul Stirling, shook their hands to agree on the decision.
On Return, Bumrah Clinched the Man of the Series title.
Bumrah, returning to the pitch after 10 months, didn’t show any signs of slowing down. He was one of the key factors behind India’s dominant wins in the first two games vs Ireland. In the first match that witnessed his return, he clinched 2 wickets in the very initial over and proclaimed that he was gonna rule the pitch. In the series as a whole, he shined with 4 wickets from 2 matches.
A Crucial Win Ahead of the World Cup
In the T20I series against West Indies, which happened just before the Ireland one, India faced a batting issue when the middle order crumbled and couldn’t stand in front of the Caribbean bowling attack. Eventually, India gave away the series. This has caused a lot of discussion in India’s dressing room, especially about the No. 4 position.
But again, against Ireland, India had fresh energy. With the return of Bumrah and batters finding form again, there is a sense of fresh energy in the team. This will help them tie their pads better in the upcoming Asia Cup 2023.
