That's it from us. Hope you enjoyed the coverage of the first T20I. Do join us for the 2nd T20I on 29th, until then, goodbye and take care.

Kohli: Opening combination was excellent. Great effort by Rohit and Shikhar to put us in the good position. And good strikes from MS, Raina and Pandya in the end. With the ball, we were clinical as well. I am very happy as a captain. We have already announced that apart from opening batsmen, we are going to experiment in middle order a lot in T20 games. We asked the guys to have that flexibility and they are responding well. We will play the guys who didn't play in this game. We're going to give everyone a go in this series. The management and me as captain decided it. There're no mysteries and looking everyone to give game time.

00:07 (IST)

Wilson: World Class side aren't they? The top-two played beautifully. Credit to them. I actually thought it was going to be a good wicket, didn't really think it would spin like that in the second innings. No one thought. Possibly, I could have bowled the spinners more. In hindsight, that's always the thing, isn't it? Simi has had a good tour of Netherlands and played spin very well. (Positives)The way Shannon played was particularly pleasing. Chase and Rankin bowled well at the death. Over the next two days we are going to have a chat on how to tackle the spinners. 

00:04 (IST)

Kuldeep Yadav: Yes, first trip to UK and started well. I think wicket was good to bat on. It was turning a little. We bowled with many variations and tried to stick to line and length. Whenever we (Yuzvendra and I) bowl, we get wickets. We just stick to right line and length. Yes, England are playing good cricket and it will be challenging for me to perform. But if you are using the right variations, there should be no problem. 

00:01 (IST)

Kuldeep Yadav is named the Man of the Match.

23:54 (IST)

Yuzvendra Chahal: Today was good. I think I got hit two extra sixes. This is my first UK tour. I enjoyed here. Wicket was grippy. Mahi bhai, Virat bhai told me to bowl far from the batsmen. This is good learning for us before going to England. Kuldeep and I always talk in the middle of what to do.

This is India's fourth largest victory and Ireland's second largest defeat in T20Is in-terms of runs.

Seven wickets shared by Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav today. You can say their English summer has gotten off to a great start. Lots of positives for India today, in all three aspects of the game. Perhaps the only worry was fielding, never mind that Kohli got off with a two ball duck. On Friday, they will try to make up for the shortcoming no doubt. Ireland tried, but they are simply not good enough to compete with a powerhouse like the Men in Blue at the moment.

4/21 by Kuldeep is the best figures by a Chinaman bowler in T20Is surpassing 4/23 by Lakshan Sandakan against South Africa  at the Wanderers in 2017.

After 20 overs,Ireland 132/9 ( Boyd Rankin 5 , Peter Chase 2)

That's it! India have won by 76 runs. A comprehensive win. They outplayed Ireland in every department. After being send into bat, the openers set the platform with massive 160-run stand. Rohit missed out on his ton by 3 runs. India managed to post a formidable 208/5. In reply, Ireland got off to a jittery start. They lost Stirling early, But then James Shannon, riding on luck kept the momentum going. He scored 60 but the Indian spinners wove a web around the batsmen in the middle overs and that's where Ireland's game was lost. Kuldeep was brilliant with four wickets. Chahal picked up three. Ireland never got the momentum going and fell well short.

Preview: It's the dress rehearsal before the the actual test but India would do well not to let the guard down when they take on a lowly but effervescent Ireland in a two-match T20 rubber.

The games will mark the onset of a long summer for the Indian team, with sterner tests against England to follow this short series in Malahide on the outskirts of Dublin. England have just hammered Australia in an ODI series and most of their top players are in sublime form.

Perhaps it was a marker of this crucial impending assignment that India decided to stay on and practice in London on Monday.

While the contingent had arrived from Delhi on Saturday, this was a first training session on-tour, held at the Merchants Taylor School cricket ground.

Reportedly, the players were split into three groups while practicing all facets of the game.

Umesh Yadav and Bhuvneshwar Kumar headed the pace group along with all-rounder Hardik Pandya, while a few others practised fielding drills. Among batsmen, openers Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan enjoyed a first stint together.

Skipper Virat Kohli and the in-form KL Rahul batted together in adjacent nets against spin and pace respectively.

While Rahul has been a constant part of the T20I squad, Ajinkya Rahane's omission from the ODI squad means that he is once again a contender for the number four spot when the three-match series against England begins on July 12.

Since the tour of South Africa, this is the first time a full-strength Indian team will be seen in action.

Kohli, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah and MS Dhoni were rested for the T20 tri-series in Sri Lanka in March. The former trio also missed the one-off Test against Afghanistan in Bengaluru recently.

With Rahul in contention for a starting spot in the middle order, Manish Pandey, Suresh Raina and Dinesh Karthik will be left jostling for two spots.

As part of the full-strength Indian side, the three had featured in the T20 series against South Africa. Raina had been used as a pinch-hitting, aggressive number three option, but the current situation might warrant a re-think.

Nevertheless, Raina provides a sixth bowling option as well. India would also not want to drop Dinesh Karthik, who is in sizzling form since March.

It could mean that Pandey eventually warms the bench, despite scoring 255 runs in 8 T20Is this year against South Africa, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh at an average of 85.

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 here.

However, the pace department is an area of concern, as the second-choice fast bowlers have not enjoyed enough game time.

Since the 2017 Champions Trophy, India have played 32 ODIs and 18 T20Is, with Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah handling the new ball in 26 ODIs and 9 T20Is, respectively.

Umesh Yadav last played an ODI in September 2017 against Australia at Bengaluru. Siddharth Kaul was in the Indian squad for the home ODIs against Sri Lanka in December, but was not picked ahead of Kumar-Bumrah.

Kaul is also yet to make his T20I debut, while Yadav played his only T20I back in 2012. It remains to be seen if the think tank will bench either Kumar or Bumrah against Ireland to give other pacers some much needed overs.

India and Ireland do not have a rich playing history. Despite touring England in 2011 and 2014, this is the Men in Blue's first visit here since 2007 when they played a solitary ODI at Belfast.

Rohit, Dhoni and Karthik were part of that squad, albeit Karthik was picked ahead of Dhoni in the playing eleven for that one-off game.

Overall, India and Ireland have played only four times, in three ODIs (the other two during 2011 and 2015 ODI World Cups) and a T20I in 2009 during the World T20 in England.

India had won that game at Nottingham by eight wickets with Rohit scoring an unbeaten half-century. Dhoni and Raina are the other current' members from that playing eleven nine years ago.

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.

Meanwhile, 31-year-old Punjab-born off-spinner Simranjit Singh will enjoy the spotlight of playing against his erstwhile nation.

Teams:

India: Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Manish Pandey, Suresh Raina, Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Umesh Yadav, Siddarth Kaul.

Ireland: Gary Wilson (c & wk), Andrew Balbirnie, Peter Chase, George Dockrell , Josh Little, Andy McBrine, Kevin O'Brien, William Porterfield, Stuart Poynter, Boyd Rankin, James Shannon, Simi Singh, Paul Stirling, Stuart Thompson.

Looking back at the recently-concluded season, Wadia said the umpiring error to call a short-run when it wasn't, cost the team a playoff berth though it did not show the required consistency in the first year under captain and coach combine of Rahul and Kumble.
