Bumrah over the moon as India wins the series 2-0 against Ireland with not a single ball bowled in 3rd T20I due to rain


Wednesday’s third Twenty20 International between India and Ireland in Dublin match cancelled due to rain before a ball bowled. India has won the series 2-0 as a result. Because of the weather, neither team had the chance to flip a coin to determine whether to bat first or bowl first. India prevailed by two runs in the opening T20I, according to the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern (DLS) method. After deciding to bowl first, India had restricted the host team to just 139/7 in 20 overs.

Ireland reached a modest score after recovering from reduced to 59/6 thanks to spirited innings from Barry McCarthy (51* in 33 balls with four boundaries and four sixes) and Curtis Campher (39 in 33 balls with three fours and a six).

The finest bowler for India, Jasprit Bumrah, who was making his injury comeback, took 2/24 in his four overs. Prasidh Krishna, a T20I rookie (2/32) and Ravi Bishnoi (2/23) both claimed two wickets. One wicket taken by Arshdeep Singh.

India was 47/2 in 6.5 overs while chasing 140 when play was abruptly called off due to rain. The majority of India’s batting done by Yashasvi Jaiswal (24), Ruturaj Gaikwad (19*), Tilak Varma dismissed for a golden duck, and Sanju Samson was unbeaten at one run.

The ‘Player of the Match’ determined to be Bumrah.

India given the opportunity to bat first in the second T20I, and they added 185/5 in 20 overs. India’s opening pair of Jaiswal (19) and Ruturaj had a strong start, but fast dismissals from Jaiswal and Tilak (1) left India at 34/2. The innings was then rebuilt by Sanju Samson (40 in 26 balls, five fours, and a six). Ruturaj reached his second T20I fifty when he removed after hitting 58 in 43 balls with six fours and a six. At that point, India had 129/4 after 15.1 overs. After that, Shivam Dube (22* in 16 balls with two sixes) and international debutant Rinku Singh (38 in 21 balls, with two fours and three sixes) provided some strong finishing touches to help India to a respectable score.

Ireland’s top wicket-taker was McCarthy (2/36) while Mark Adair, Craig Young, and Benjamin White each claimed one.

Ireland dropped to 63/4 in their first 10 overs of the 186-run chase, but Andy Balbirnie (72 in 51 balls with five fours and four sixes) and George Dockrell (13), who put up a 52-run partnership, helped the Irish team surpass the 100-run threshold. Adair later added a respectable 23 off 15 balls, but it was insufficient as Ireland could only manage 152/8 in their 20 overs.

Again, the Indian bowling attack was led from the front by Bumrah (2/15), Prasidh (2/29) and Bishnoi (2/37). Having a wicket was Arshdeep.

‘Player of the Match’ honor went to Rinku.
