“India Set to Clash with Ireland in Wednesday’s Match on June 5th”

Dublin: Virat Kohli is set to open the innings for Team India in the 2024 ICC T20 World Cup. India will play their first match against Ireland on June 5 in New York.

Warm-Up Match Insights

The pitch in New York, as observed during the warm-up match between India and Bangladesh, offered significant bounce, posing challenges for the Indian openers. Only Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya managed to handle the Bangladesh bowlers effectively. Arshdeep Singh and Shivam Dube each claimed two wickets, leading Rohit Sharma’s team to a 60-run victory over their opponents.

Kohli’s Return and Expectations

After a period of rest following the Indian Premier League, Kohli has rejoined the team. Former Indian player Mohammad Kaif highlighted Kohli’s crucial role in the first match. “We saw what happened in the warm-up. The pitch was not suitable for batting as it had a spongy bounce. I expect a similar surface in the match against Ireland,” Kaif observed, emphasising the importance of Kohli’s presence and performance in the opening game.
