In a good news for the Indian fans, DD Sports will be broadcasting the IND vs IRE series for free. It must be mentioned that Doordarshan also gave the free access to live action during the India tour of West Indies. To note, a rather young Indian side led by senior pacer Jasprit Bumrah will be taking on the Irish squad in a three-match T20I series starting on August 18. All three matches of the series will be played in Dublin as the home team looks to win its first ever bilateral series win over the Men in Blue.
In the absence of regulars, Ruturaj Gaikwad and Yashasvi Jaiswal are likely to be the two openers in India’s Playing 11. While the middle order will be studded with Tilak Varma, Sanju Samson, Shivam Dube, and IPL sensation Rinku Singh. Meanwhile, Washington Sundar and Shahbaz Ahmed are likely to be the two spinners in India’s XI for the 1st T20 vs Ireland.
