India vs Ireland 2nd T20I Live Score: Bumrah and co. all set to crash Irish party, seal series after West Indies shocker
Live Score Updates for India vs. Ireland 2nd T20I: Jasprit Bumrah will try to continue his strong form in the second T20I between India and Ireland, which will be played at The Village in Dublin.
Bumrah, who was playing his first match after a lengthy injury layoff, wasted little time and got right to work in the first over. Apart from Bumrah, spinner Ravi Bishnoi also contributed two wickets as India limited Ireland to 139/7 batting first.
The opening pair of Yashasvi Jaiswal and Ruturaj Gaikwad then got India off to a good start, but they were soon rocked by a double blow. However, rain delayed the match before Ireland could do any further damage, and India triumphed by two runs using the Duckworth/Lewis method.
India would be hoping for improved weather and a chance for the young hitters to demonstrate their mettle in the second T20I.
