In their match against Ireland, the Indian players delivered an impressive all-round performance. Mohammed Siraj kept relentless pressure on the Irish batsmen, finishing with exceptional figures of 3-1-13. Rishabh Pant, batting at the No. 3 position, formed a crucial 54-run partnership with captain Rohit Sharma.

Despite being struck on the elbow by a delivery from Joshua Little, Pant entertained the crowd with his aggressive hitting. He sealed the match with a spectacular reverse-scoop six off McCarthy’s delivery, showcasing his flair and skill.

India’s batting coach Vikram Rathour confirmed that Pant would continue to bat at No. 3, emphasizing the advantage of having a left-hander in that position. “Yes, he has been batting really well. The two games he has played, he has looked really, really good. So yes, at the moment he is our number three, and it helps that he is the left-hander,” Rathour said during the post-match press conference. This strategy aims to maintain the team’s balance and capitalize on Pant’s explosive batting ability.
