India left for Dublin on Tuesday after having a practice session in London on Monday.

O'Brien also dismissed Raina as it looked like Ireland might just contain India towards the end, however, Hardik Pandya came out all guns blazing as he smashed 32 off just 9 balls - which included four sixes as India ended at 213/4.

Rahul had missed out in the first T20 despite being in-form. Kohli, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah and MS Dhoni were rested for the T20 tri-series in Sri Lanka in March. However, India know that Ireland are no knock-overs.

On the bowling front, Kohli will be tempted to field both leg-spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav, giving them an early taste of conditions. Umesh Yadav who played well in IPL is expected to be in the Playing XI.

India take on Ireland in a two-match T20I series at the Malahide Cricket Ground Club in the lead-up to the much-anticipated full tour against England next month.

For Ireland, skipper Gary Wilson, former captain William Porterfield and all-rounder Kevin O'Brien are the ones to have T20 experience against an Indian team.
