The second and final T20I between Ireland vs India will take place at the Malahide Stadium in Dublin on Friday, June 29, 2018. The match is scheduled to start at 8:30 PM IST or 3:00 PM GMT. India is leading the series by 1-0, having won the first game by 76 runs. India had completely dominated Ireland in that game, with both bat and ball.

Ireland had one star player from each department in the last game: Peter Chase with the ball and James Shannon with the bat. They would hope that others also step up and do their job, so the team doesn't face another huge defeat.

Captain Gary Wilson said that they need to look at how they are playing the Indian spinners and what needs to be done in order to get better. They might make one change to their line-up from the previous game; that is, David Delany may replace Joshua Little.

Ireland skipper Wilson is optimistic abut his team's chances in the 2nd T20. The BBC quoted him as saying, "We're obviously disappointed we lost the game but we can still look forward to Friday."

The previous game was a near perfect victory for India and they will hope to continue their good run before next they go to England for a full series of almost two months.

According to Cricbuzz, Washington Sundar and Jasprit Bumrah have suffered a bit of niggle, and the team management might not risk them for this game. In that situation, Umesh Yadav will come in and the two wrist spinners, Kuldeep and Chahal, will keep their places in the XI.

Captain Virat Kohli had hinted that the team might test their bench in this game, but there was no clear indication who will be getting that chance, according to ESPNCricinfo.

TV broadcast and live stream details

The match will be broadcast live on the Sony Six and Sony Six HD channels in India and its subcontinent. The live streaming and highlights will be available on the SonyLIV app and the official website.

Though, the match is scheduled to begin at 3 PM GMT or 8:30 PM IST, the live coverage will be starting an hour earlier to that.

Viewers in the UK can watch the game live on the Sky Sports Cricket channel. The live stream will be available on the Sky Go app or the Sky Sports website from 2:30 PM GMT.

Pitch and conditions

The weather report in Dublin is quite pleasing. Just like the first game, it is expected to stay sunny and bright. There are no chances of rain so far. So, it is likely that we will be getting an entire game of 40 overs.

The pitch played really well in the first innings of the previous game, but during the second half, there was some turn on offer for the spinners. Was it the quality of cricket played by the teams or did the pitch really change in the second innings? It is hard to say.
