     “India Clinches T20I Series 2-0 as Third Match Ends in Washout.

     The heavens frowned upon the cricketing clash today, with rain and a waterlogged pitch forcing the abandonment of the much-anticipated third T20I between India and Ireland. Nevertheless, the weather couldn’t dampen India’s spirits as they secured a resounding 2-0 series victory. Jasprit Bumrah, leading the team in his first T20I series as captain, saw his leadership rewarded.

     The series victory was sealed by virtue of India’s earlier triumphs – a win in the first T20I achieved through the DLS method, followed by a convincing 33-run triumph in the second match, both contests unfolding at The Village in Dublin. As raindrops fell on the Malahide Cricket Ground, India’s aspirations for a 3-0 sweep of the series evaporated like mist.

     The rain, a relentless adversary, arrived just before the coin toss and continued to pour for hours, saturating the outfield and causing the match to be called off by the umpires. Even a break in the rain’s siege couldn’t salvage the game as the field’s condition had already succumbed to the deluge. The series may have been cut short, but it allowed Bumrah and his team to revel in their well-deserved victory.

     This series bore witness to the triumphant return of pace duo Bumrah and Prasidh Krishna, both bouncing back from daunting surgeries. Their mettle will face a sterner examination in the upcoming ODI Asia Cup commencing on August 30. Bumrah, at the helm of a youthful squad in the absence of senior players, guided his charges with an eye on the forthcoming home World Cup in October-November.

     For the young talents in the team, this series served as a crucial warm-up for the impending Asia Cup showdown. As the rain-soaked stumps mark the end of this series, India now shifts its focus entirely to the imminent Asia Cup, embarking on a journey that promises more electrifying cricketing moments.”

     The pictures will tell you the  Rest of  the story.

India vs Ireland:  A Heavy Drizzle here in Malahide and therefore the Toss is delayed.

     India vs Ireland 3rd T20I:  Abhishek Nayar on Rinku Singh:
     Having closely tracked the journey of a ‘shy’ young boy with ‘low self-confidence’ who evolve into a promising player for India, Abhishek Nayar describes Rinku Singh’s story as one of hard work and perseverance.

     India skipper Jasprit Bumrah:

     Very happy to be back and play some cricket. Frustrating when you’re waiting for a game to happen. Did not see this coming, weather was fine in the morning. An honour to lead the side, everyone was very eager and enthusiastic. Whenever you get an opportunity to lead your side, anyone would love to do that. As a cricketer, you always want responsibility. All good, no complaints. Not one year (out of the team), 10-11 months (he jokingly corrects Alan Wilkins). Makes my job easier when players are so confident, and they tell me what to do.

     Ireland skipper Paul Stirling:

     Just periods of good cricket from us in patches. Lot of positives, but it’s about finishing those games off. Hopefully we’ll take these learnings. Brilliant to have India over and play in front of good crowds here. Would’ve been happier if we could’ve got some fresh faces out there tonight. It’s a buildup now for the next sort of 10 months.

     India pacer Prasidh Krishna:

     The team was following the moon landing on the bus. We saw it here. Pretty happy being picked for the Asia Cup. Process is same, continuing the process is important. I still want to do better, I’ve been running in well, but there’s more I can do. Trying to get into the groove. Its about being consistent. If I can be consistent in execution, that’s where I want to be. It will be an important game for us. We want to be on point every moment. The weather is a little cloudy but we expect another good game.
