T20 World Cup 2024: IND vs IRE Match 8 Prediction: India vs Ireland Check Fantasy Team, Playing XIs, Injury Updates & Pitch Report

India, the 2007 World T20 champions, are set to kick off their T20 World Cup 2024 journey against Ireland in the eighth match of the tournament. This game will be held at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York.

India is among the top contenders for the title, boasting numerous match-winners, many of whom have recently excelled in the Indian Premier League. Their last T20I series saw them dominate Afghanistan with a clean 3-0 victory. Virat Kohli, in exceptional form with 741 runs in 15 IPL matches at a strike rate of 155, might be considered to open the batting.

Ireland, often viewed as underdogs, have made headlines by recently defeating Pakistan in an ODI and winning the Netherlands Tri-Nation T20I Series. Their squad includes experienced players who can ensure a competitive match. Left-arm pacer Josh Little, with his IPL experience and skill, will be crucial to their chances, potentially posing a significant challenge to the Indian batsmen.

Historically, India has won all seven T20 internationals against Ireland. This upcoming match marks only the second time these teams will face off in a T20 World Cup, with their previous encounter in 2009 ending in an eight-wicket victory for India at Trent Bridge.
