India vs Ireland: Date, Kick Off Time, TV Info, Cricket World Cup Preview

By   March 9, 2015

India and Ireland are two of the most in-form teams at the 2015 Cricket World Cup. Umesh Yadav, Mohit Sharma, Mohammed Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar were completely relaxed in the nets, and yet, when they ran in, it was with purpose and vigour. While the bowlers working with each other in such harmony to make Dhoni’s job easier was a touch unexpected, there is nothing unusual about how well this Indian team has fielded. In the ring, the likes of Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane.

Ireland too would want impact players such as Kevin O’Brien, Niall O’Brien and William Porterfield to come good. Ireland may find it tough to beat India, but if they get going, it could be one tough game for the favourites.

India and Ireland have faced each other in two One-Day Internationals (ODIs) so far. One of those encounters was a World Cup game, in 2011, when India managed to ward away the Irish fight and record an important victory.
