All eyes were on the speed master,  Umran Malik, as, after a long wait, he was ready to make his debut for team India. It started raining, and his wait became longer and longer. Then the good news came that the match was about to be played but it was reduced to 12 overs each side. Paul Stirling and their skipper, Andy Balbirine, were all set to open the innings for Ireland, and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, the most experienced player in the side, was all set to start the proceedings for India. Bhuvneshwar Kumar took the wicket in his own first over and gave India a very good start. Hardik Pandya was having a dream run with the ball too; he took a wicket and the Indians were proving to be too good for Ireland on that day. Ireland were not able to handle the pressure and were losing regular wickets. Harry Tector was looking as if he was batting on some different pitch and he just hammered Umran Malik to all parts of the ground. Meanwhile, Harry Tector completed his half century. Thanks to Tector’s innings, Ireland managed to score 108 runs.

It was very rare to see DK get out cheaply. Even Axar Patel got out, and the Indians had a flurry of wickets.

Some excellent fielding by the Indian skipper, Hardik Pandya, resulted in an unfortunate runout for Ireland. The Ireland captain, Andy Balbirnie, completed his half century. It was Harshal Patel who took the all important wicket of Andy Balbirnie. Then Umran Malik got his first wicket for India. Ireland , and Indian teams were both looking to win. The pendulum was swinging from one team to another. In the last over, 17 runs were required and Captain Hardik Pandya handed over the ball to Umran Malik . He started with a dot ball. Now 17 runs were required from 5 balls. And one more dot ball. But it was a no ball and here you go, bonus for Ireland. One run and a free hit. And yet Ireland hit four. As a result, the equation was down to 12 runs required from 4 balls. The next ball was also smashed for 4 runs, and now the equation was looking in Ireland’s favor as they required only 8 runs from 3 balls. Then a single was scored, and the equation was 7 runs from 2 balls. Then Ireland took a quick single and then the equation was down to one ball and six runs.
