commentary

Hitman and Gabbar killed the match in the first passage of play and then Kuldeep and Chahal portrayed their sorcery to complete the inevitable for Ireland. Hopefully, Ireland will be more competitive in the next match. See you on Friday. Until then, this is Varun Dixit signing off on behalf of Rishi Roy, Sagar Chawla, Ramakrishnan and Mukesh. Good bye and take good care of yourselves.

Virat Kohli: I can't complain about anything today. Opening combination was excellent. The last over bowled by Ireland was terrific. Great effort by Rohit and Shikhar to put us in a good position. And good strikes from MS, Raina and Pandya in the end. Bowlers did a clinical job too. We have already announced that apart from the opening combination we are going to do a lot of experiments in the middle order. We are going to be flexible in the next few T20s. We will look to throw in guys when the situation requires them to come in and try to surprise the opposition. It presents the opportunity for the batsmen who couldn't get the opportunity to bat. The guys who couldn't get a chance today will get an opportunity in the next match. The guys had a great time in T20 League but they need to get time in the middle here too. The team management decided to give a go to everyone in the squad. The guys are fine with this decision. We are looking to give everyone game-time and want them to portray the qualities they possess because many guys go on tour and never get an opportunity to play.

Kuldeep Yadav, Man of the match: This is my first trip to the UK and it has started well. I think the wicket was good to bat on and it was turning a little bit but wristspinners exploit even that little bit of turn in the wicket. We bowled variations and tried to bowl in the right areas. We talk a lot during the games when we bowl. First Chahal bowled and he told me that pitch is little slow. England are playing good cricket but if we use variations nicely it will be difficult for England too.

Gary Wilson: They are a world-class side and their lads at the top played beautifully. I expected it to be a good wicket, I did not expect it to spin as it did in the second innings. We could have bowled spinners in the powerplay. You can always do things differently when things don't go your way. Simi had a very good tour of Netherland so we pushed him up the order. We are going to have a chat to tackle their spinners. Shannon had a good match so that is one positive we can take from this match.

19:14 Local Time, 18:14 GMT, 23:44 IST: The chase was never really on once India ran away to a total of 208. Ireland opener James Shannon rode his luck for his maiden T20I fifty, off 29 balls, but the hosts never kept up with the required rate which climbed to a daunting 14rpo as early as the halfway mark. And once the Indian wristspinners took control, the hosts had no answers. With the batsmen needing to go after them, Kuldeep and Chahal slipped in their variations to wreck havoc through the middle. It was India's opening partnership with the bat of course which knocked the stuffing out of Ireland. Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan's massive 160-run stand put any semblance of a contest out of the window. It will take some doing for Ireland to bounce back from this pasting. Time for the presentation.

Kuldeep Yadav to S Thompson, out Caught by Hardik Pandya!! Good contact from Thompson, but it goes only as far as long-on. It was a flighted leg-break, and maybe it was a bit too full to get a great deal of elevation. Thompson hits it flat and hard, but a backpedaling Hardik Pandya does really with for an overhead catch. S Thompson c Hardik Pandya b Kuldeep Yadav 12(8) [4s-1]

Chahal to Wilson, out Stumped!! And another. Ireland falling apart in trying to keep abreast. But what lovely bowling this is from the leg-break bowler.

Kuldeep Yadav to Shannon, out Lbw!! Fired in from Kuldeep Yadav, beats Shannon for pace and traps him in front. This was a whole lot quicker than what his usual delivery is.

Kuldeep Yadav to Wilson, no run, tossed up, Wilson gets forward to sweep, effectively yorker length, misses, and it hits the boot. Massive appeal, but not given. Certainly hit in front of off and middle. Mysteriously not given. Hands on heads for the Indians.

8.6
0
Chahal to Shannon, no run, short and wide, still loads of spin though, Shannon cuts but can't keep it down, and is lucky that it hasn't gone straight to Manish Pandey, who dives but can't complete a catch. He does a good job stopping it though, as Raina comes around to fire in the throw at the striker's end and avoids the run
8.5
2
Chahal to Shannon, 2 runs, half-volley on middle, a late whip away to deep mid-wicket for a brace, and that's a fifty for Shannon

Hardik Pandya to Simi Singh, FOUR, poor end to the over, short and wide, and a well-placed cut away to the deep backward point boundary for another four. Not the best initiation to the UK for Hardik. Cricket-wise...

Chahal to Andy Balbirnie, out Stumped!! Gone. That's Chahal at his best. Slows it up beautifully, even as he might have guessed that Andy Balbirnie was going to charge him, slower and tossed up outside off, beats the batsman's swing to leg. MS has the easiest of jobs to do. Andy Balbirnie st Dhoni b Chahal 11(14) [4s-1]

1
Bumrah to Shannon, 1 run, he's dropped it! Rohit has dropped it! Length ball again, Shannon slogs over the on-side again, and gets the hand off the bat to slice it in the air. Almost zero distance, but Rohit hasn't quite spotted it well enough on the on-side and can't get under it. Dives forward at the last moment but too late. Where was Dhoni? Oddly enough, the mitt-man hasn't come around. Either way, poor work from the Indian fielders.

Bumrah to Stirling, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!
