India will be keen to test bench strength before the big England series when they take on Ireland in the last and second T20I match at The Village in Dublin and would want to carry the winning momentum into the England series that starts on July 3 with a three-match T20I series. Rohit and Dhawan batted well in the first game but other batsmen couldn't get enough time to bat so in this game they might be rested.
