India defeated Ireland in the first match by 76 runs thanks to a stupendous all-around performance by the Indian players. Rohit Sharma (97) and Shikhar Dhawan (74) put India on the path of a big score and India put 208 on board for Ireland to chase.

The spin twins Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav picked up 7 wickets to rout Ireland at 132/9. Kuldeep Yadav picked up his career best 4/21 and was named Man of the match for his performance.

Captain Virat Kohli has said that every player in the squad will get a chance in the middle and this experimentation will continue in the England T20I series as well. This means that the likes of Dinesh Karthik and KL Rahul, who have done well for India in past and had a very good IPL 2018 will get chances in upcoming matches.

In the bowling side too, changes are expected to keep the workload of the likes of Bhuvneshwar and Bumrah light keeping in mind the England Test series.
