IND vs IRE: Match Preview, Pitch Report and Dream 11 Prediction for Match 8 of T20 World Cup 2024

Match 8 of the T20 World Cup will feature India and Ireland beginning their tournament at Nassau County International Cricket Stadium, New York. We will cover this match in detail, and a fantasy team will be provided at the end.

Team Previews


Shattering the hopes of over a billion cricket fans nationwide, Australia defeated India in their backyard and won the Cricket World Cup 2023. The same goes for England, who defeated India in the T20 World Cup 2022 Semifinals.

India won their last ICC trophy in 2013 (the Champions Trophy), and they have been waiting for it for the last 11 years. India aims to begin their 2024 T20 World Cup campaign by defeating Ireland and strengthening their spot for the Super 8.


Ireland is surely the dark horse from Group A. India and Pakistan are the hot favourites, but diminishing Ireland’s calibre is no less than a sin. They have a balanced squad with a lot of experience. Captain Paul Stirling and their lead pacer, Joshua Little, are the most important players for them.

In the recently concluded series against Pakistan, Ireland won the 1st T20I and showed the world their capabilities. Although they lost the series, they won all three games against Scotland and the host Netherlands in the tri-series.

Probable Playing XI

India: Rohit Sharma (c), Yashasvi Jaiswal, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (wk), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Arshdeep Singh/Mohammed Siraj

Ireland: Andy Balbirnie, Paul Stirling (c), Lorcan Tucker (wk), Harry Tector, Curtis Campher, George Dockrell, Gareth Delany, Mark Adair, Barry McCarthy, Josh Little, Benjamin White

Pitch Report

The match would be played at Nassau County International Cricket Stadium, New York

  • Total T20I Played- 1
  • Matches Won Batting First- 0
  • Matches Won Batting Second- 1
  • Average First Innings Score- 77

The clash between Sri Lanka and South Africa was the first-ever international game played on this ground. The ground offers a two-paced wicket, which makes it heaven for bowlers, especially pacers. Anrich Nortje along with his fellow bowlers ripped through the Sri Lankan batting lineup and bundled them for 77 runs.

Players To Watch Out For

Jasprit Bumrah

The star pacer from India can use the condition to its fullest, continue his IPL form, and take the game in India’s favour.

IPL 2024 was a high-scoring tournament (especially in the first half), and Yorker King conceded runs at an economy of just 6.48. He clinched 20 wickets in 13 matches and was the tournament’s third-highest wicket-taker.

Virat Kohli

Virat stands tall whenever the conditions are tough and protects India like a saviour. An anchor like him would be the most important batsman during India’s batting. He is also coming off a wonderful IPL season, where he was the highest run scorer. Virat smashed 741 runs in 15 matches of IPL 2024, averaging more than 60.
