Ireland captain also stated that the Indian batters were difficult to bowl in the match. “We had chances. We didn’t quite take it. We had positives for the entire 40 overs. I think we just let them get away in the last few overs. Their batters got going and were difficult to bowl to. We have areas to work on. We can turn it around and hopefully get a win,” Paul Stirling said in a post-match presentation. Ireland batter Andrew Balbirnie believes that his team is capable of challenging India after losing the three-match T20I series with a game to spare.
While heaping praise on India’s bowling attack, Balbirnie said that the Men in Blue’s skilled bowling unit is highly skilled and “hopefully” his team can put out a batter show in the last T20I match of the series.
