Weather forecast: Will rain hinder India-Ireland match in 1st T20I?
Team India is scheduled to play a three-match T20 series against Ireland, starting on Friday. However, the first match is at risk of being washed out due to bad weather. Reports indicate that there is a high chance of rain during the day and night in Dublin, where the match will be held.
One of the highlights of the series will be the return of cricketer Jasprit Bumrah, who has been out of international cricket for 11 months due to a back injury. Bumrah will also be leading the Indian side for the T20 series. He underwent surgery for his lower-back fractures and was advised to take a long rest before making a comeback.
The upcoming T20 series against Ireland will not only mark Bumrah’s return but also serve as preparation for the upcoming Asia Cup 2023. There is already anticipation of an on-field confrontation between Bumrah and Babar Azam in the Asia Cup, which has been discussed on social media.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has assured that Bumrah is in control of his pace and sharpness. They posted a note expressing their excitement for Bumrah’s comeback and shared a video showcasing his skills.
Bumrah himself expressed his intention to enjoy the game and not put too much pressure on himself. He mentioned that he has missed playing cricket during his time away and is looking forward to being back on the field.
Overall, cricket fans are eagerly awaiting the India-Ireland T20 series, although there is a possibility of the first match being affected by rain.
