The Indian team will begin a three-match T20I series against Ireland from August 18. Jasprit Bumrah has been given the command of Team India in this series, who will return after almost 11 months. This series is important for Bumrah as his fitness will be tested here and he is a key player for the upcoming Asia Cup and ODI World Cup. The popular Krishna is also returning from injury and is also a part of this squad. Apart from this, all the young players have got an opportunity. There is also a player who last played T20 International in February 2020. That means after almost three-and-a-half years, the player can also be seen in the playing XI against Ireland.
The last T20I was played in February 2020.
We are talking about Shivam Dubey who has once again made a comeback to Team India after performing brilliantly for Chennai Super Kings in the IPL. He has previously played 13 T20 Internationals for India since his debut in November 2019 till February 2020. Now once again he has been selected in Team India. In the Asian Games, his name is included in the team that will be led by Rituraj Gaikwad. Dubey has also played one ODI for India. He was also compared to veterans like Yuvraj Singh at the beginning of his career. But after that his performance dropped. Then he did wonders for CSK under the leadership of MS Dhoni and now he will be seen again in the blue jersey. He has scored 105 runs in 9 T20 innings and 54 runs is his best score. Apart from this, he has also taken 5 wickets.
Shivam Dubey, IPL 2023
Ranko Singh may get a chance to debut.
Another IPL star, Rinku Singh, will also be eyeing the upcoming Ireland series. Rinko made headlines in the last two seasons of the IPL, especially in 2023 with five sixes in the last over. Rinku Singh has also been selected in the Asian Games squad. Now it is to be seen whether Rinku Singh gets a chance to debut or not. If we talk about the balance of the team, vice-captain Rutoraj Gaikwad and Yashwi Jaiswal will be seen opening the innings. Along with this, Tilak Verma will play at No.3 and Shivam Dubey may be seen at No.4. Sanju Samson also featured at number 5 in the West Indies series, so he may be seen in that position. All that remains is the important position of No. 4 where Rinku Singh can be seen. Playing all-rounder Washington Sundar at No. 7 can be considered a fix. After that, Jasprit Bumrah, Arsdeep Singh and the popular Krishna Pace will take charge of the battery. Ravi Bishnoi can play as the sole spinner along with Sundar.
