Ireland put up a decent fight against India in the first T20, but India’s superiority was clear to see. Rain played spoilsport and reduced the match to just 12 overs a side, but both teams still showed the basic character of their teams at that time. The weather forecast for the second match is much better, and although there is some rain earlier in the day, we should be able to get a full match in if a little bit of luck goes our way.
Once again, the best cricket betting sites are all offering extremely short odds on India to win. In many ways, the result of this match is considered a done thing, and so you have to look at different betting markets to find value.
Match prediction and cricket betting tips for Ireland vs. India 2nd T20 2022. The match is going to be played at the Village, Dublin, on the 28th of June 2022.
IRE VS IND TEAM PREVIEWS
Ireland got off to a poor start with the bat in the previous match as the Indian bowlers made the new ball talk. That challenge is going to be in front of them in this match as well, and we think Ireland will be a bit more circumspect this time around.
Its batting lineup is top-heavy, with Paul Stirling and Andrew Balbirnie opening. These are the two best batters on the team, and if they can survive the first couple of overs, they have a chance to do some real damage.
Harry Tector played brilliantly in the previous match as he struck the ball cleanly and accelerated brilliantly in the end. Ireland did struggle against the spin bowlers, but its batting was still impressive.
In a full 20-over match, they will need more than just one player to stand up and perform. The batting lineup for Ireland has been doing decently, and we are quite sure they will put up another strong performance.
The problem is going to come in the bowling department. They were smashed all over the park by India in the previous match, and it is not much different than what they can do in a couple of days to change things around. The bowling lacks pace, and the spin options are below par.
India won the opening match with ease, and we got a glimpse into the future of Indian cricket. Hardik Pandya’s captaincy was absolutely brilliant once more. He followed the same template that he showed during the IPL, batting at number four and bowling with the new ball.
This makes Hardik Pandya an excellent person to bet on in this match.
Ruturaj Gaikwad did not bat because he had a niggle, and that may open the way to hand Rahul Tripathi a debut. We think he is a great option at the top of the order and extremely capable of scoring at the tempo required.
Ishan Kishan continued his good form and struck boundaries from the very start. Look for him in the ‘Hit A Six’ betting market available at Betway.
India’s batting is far more powerful than Ireland and should hit more fours and sixes than Ireland once again. These are things that you can bet on and take advantage of.
The bowling attack was a bit lacking, in our opinion. Umran Malik had a tough outing and sprayed the ball around while everyone except Yuzvendra Chahal went for runs at the death.
We would pick one out of Bhuvaneshwar Kumar or Yuzvendra Chahal as the Top Bowler in this match.
Venue: The Village, Malahide, Dublin

IRE VS IND TOSS PREDICTION
The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first. The pitch seemed to get better for batting as the game went on, and with the weather forecast improving near the end of the day, the same might be the case in this game.
PITCH AND CONDITIONS
There is some rain around on the morning of the match. That could mean a delayed start, but once we get going, the rain should stay away. The forecast is better for this match than the previous one. We think we should get a full 20-over contest to enjoy. India will be tested more if it bats first, but it should also be able to get a much bigger total on the board.
A score of around 180 should be seen as par.
Although there will be rain earlier in the day, we do not expect any delays or to lose any overs in this game. The temperature will be no higher than 17 degrees.
PROBABLE PLAYING XI
Paul Stirling, Andrew Balbirnie (c), Gareth Delany, Harry Tector, Lorcan Tucker (wk), George Dockrell, Mark Adair, Andy McBrine, Craig Young, Joshua Little, Conor Olphert
Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan, Deepak Hooda, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya (c), Dinesh Karthik (wk), Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Avesh Khan, Yuzvendra Chahal, Umran Malik
PROBABLE TOP PERFORMERS
PROBABLY THE BEST BATTER OF THE MATCH
Deepak Hooda was the star of the Indian batting as he brilliantly saw off Ireland’s new-ball bowlers and did not panic even though India lost back-to-back wickets of Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav. Hooda then steadied the ship along with skipper Hardik Pandya. More importantly, the Rohtak cricketer remained at the crease right till the very end and got the job done for the visitors, scoring an unbeaten 47 off 29 deliveries.
PROBABLY THE BEST BOWLER OF THE MATCH
Yuzvendra Chahal left the Irish batters guessing with his amazing bowling performance. The wrist-spinner asked some tough questions from the hosts during his spell, and even though he only succeeded in taking a solitary wicket which happened to be that of wicketkeeper-batter Lorcan Tucker, his economy rate of 3.7 was really outstanding as he conceded just 11 runs from his three overs.
