That's it from us as far as our coverage of World T20 fixture between India and Ireland is concerned. Harmanpreet Kaur's girls might have been a little wayward with the bat, but they were quite effective with the ball to dry the runs up for the opponents and force them to throw their wickets away. India meet Australia on Saturday in a contest that decides the group topper. New Zealand and Pakistan, on the other hand, face off in about an hour-and-a-half at the same venue in a match that has now been reduced to a dead rubber. 

We hope you enjoyed our coverage this evening, and that you'll join us on the weekend. Shout out to cricket statistician Umang Pabari for providing us the numbers that matter throughout the course of the match. For now, I, Amit, bid you all good night on behalf of my colleague Shubham.

Laura Delany, Ireland captain: Delighted with how we approached the game today. Everyone pretty happy with the effort. I think we were sharper in the field today. We are trying to find the right balance. I cannot thank support we have got in the tournament. 

23:55 (IST)

Harmanpreet Kaur, India skipper: Happy we qualified for semis. Still a lot of areas where we have to improve. It's a short format, and sometimes you're main bowler doesn't bowl according to plan. That's why me and Jemi bowled today. We have to be aggressive on field. We didn't bat or bowl according to plan, and we have to improve on those areas. You have to be aggressive all the time if you are to beat Australia.

Mithali Raj, who top-scored for India with her second-consecutive half-century, is the 'Player of the Match'! 

Mithali: (On her knee injury) I'm sure it will get better, and I will get ready for the next game. I think today the wicket was quite challenging because it was quite soft. That partnership with Smriti was quite crucial. Hopefully we get a better wicket in the next game. (On Mandhana's lean patch) When somebody is going through a lean patch, it's important to keep them optimistic. She's getting better and better with each game. (On Indian team's progess) This team definitely has improved from what we were in the last edition of the World Cup. The way we have started off has been incredible. (On her approach towards batting) You're prepared for two-three shots for one delivery, and you try and innovate in this format. It's something I've worked on.

Preview: Having convincingly won their first two matches, a dominant India will look to stamp their authority when they face a lowly Ireland in a Group B match of the ICC Women's World Twenty20 here on Thursday.

India are on a roll in the ongoing World T20, having beaten an in-form New Zealand by 34 runs in their tournament opener before extending their dominance over arch-rivals Pakistan with a 7-wicket win in their second match.

It has been a combined team effort for the women-in-blue in the opening two matches so far. While skipper Harmanpreet Kaur and the young Jemimah Rodrigues batted out the White Ferns comprehensively in the first match, the second game witnessed a composed knock from veteran Mithali Raj that helped India outshine Pakistan.

Going in to Thursday's match, India will be desperately hoping for their opening batswoman Smriti Mandhana to come up with a big score. After failing in the opener, Mandhana got to a decent start in the second tie, but eventually failed to capitalise on it.

While Harmanpreet and Mithali are expected to form the backbone of the Indian innings, the team management will be hoping to give enough match time to the likes of the other batswomen in Veda Krishnamurthy, stumper Taniya Bhatia and Dayalan Hemalatha before the tournament enters its business end.

Coming to India's bowling in the opening two games, it has been the spinners -- Hemalatha and Poonam Yadav -- ruling the roost in both the games. The spin duo of Hemalatha and Poonam shared six and four wickets between them in the two matches.

Ireland, on the other hand, have lost both their opening two matches. In the first match, they went down to Australia by nine wickets followed by a 38-run defeat against Pakistan in the second.

The batting department failed in both the matches as the batters could only manage to score 93 runs in the first match and 101 in the second match.

The bowlers also disappointed as they could only pick up seven wickets in the two matches. But the good news is that pacer Lucy O Reilly came back to form in the last match, taking three wickets.

Squads:

India: Harmanpreet Kaur (Captain), Smriti Mandhana, Mithali Raj, Jemimah Rodrigues, Veda Krishnamurthy, Deepti Sharma, Taniya Bhatia (WK), Poonam Yadav, Radha Yadav, Anuja Patil, Ekta Bisht, Dayalan Hemalatha, Mansi Joshi, Pooja Vastrakar, Arundhati Reddy.

Ireland: Laura Delany (Captain), Kim Garth, Cecelia Joyce, Isobel Joyce, Shauna Kavanagh, Amy Kenealy, Gaby Lewis, Lara Maritz, Ciara Metcalfe, Lucy OReilly, Celeste Raack, Eimear Richardson, Clare Shillington, Rebecca Stokell, Mary Waldron

Lanning's turn to try a sweep, and hers is immaculately executed, she sends it through square leg with ease, that's a boundary. Single and a double to finish the over.
