India vs Ireland, T20 World Cup 2024 Match 8: IND vs IRE head-to-head record

A match against Ireland will kick off India’s 2024 T20 World Cup campaign at the Nassau County Stadium in New York. Rohit Sharma will have to answer several questions when he announces his team at the toss, most notably who will be his opening partner, Virat Kohli or Yashasvi Jaiswal.

It will be a desperate race between Rohit and Kohli to win the title. After their last win over a team from the International Cricket Council (ICC) back in 2013, both players have endured disappointments as captains and players. Rohit, who turned 37 earlier this year, may have only one shot left to win his second T20 World Cup title, after winning his first back in 2007’s inaugural edition.


The storyline also includes the departure of head coach and India batting legend Rahul Dravid. A dominant Indian team that bulldozed teams throughout the 2023 World Cup fell in the final under the former skipper. Last year, India also lost the World Test Championship final to Australia despite being one of the strongest Test teams in the world. After the tournament, Dravid will not be continuing in the role, meaning the T20 World Cup in the USA and the West Indies is his last opportunity to win an ICC title.
