In the 2nd match T20 match, India crushed Ireland by 143 runs on Friday at the village stadium of Dublin. The result was same as the 1st T20I match, where men in blue had thrashed the Irish bowling attack. The match was one-sided as Kohli and company bowled out Ireland for only 70 runs in 12.3 overs. After winning the toss Irish skipper Gary Wilson invited India to bat first but the decision went wrong as Indian batsmen Lokesh Rahul (70) and Suresh Raina (69) hammered every opposition bowler and set a big total of 213 runs.

Performing equally well, Indian spinners trapped Irish team and dismantled them on a low total of 70 runs. The hosts lost the match and the 2 match series in a humiliating manner. Performing according to the reputation, Team India performed in a dominating style and bagged the series.

The spin duo Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal picked up 6 wickets together. The series will surely boost Team India and will help to attain the conditions before the upcoming England tour. Team India has to play 3 T20I, 3 ODI and 5 test matches with the English team in the upcoming series.
