This will be the best opportunity for Ireland to settle scores in the absence of senior players on the Indian side.  A great series is anticipated here between these two sides. Ahead of this series, India locked horns with South Africa at home in a 5-match series and it ended in both teams winning a couple of games as the last T20I was washed out due to rain.
