On June 5, India will kick off its 2024 T20 World Cup campaign against Ireland at the newly built Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York. 

The Indian cricket team is currently the favourites in Group-A, which comprises Canada, USA, Ireland and arch rivals Pakistan. However, given how the tournament has shaped up so far, Ireland cannot be ruled out of the contest just yet.

India's squad comprises a fine balance between reliable veterans and fearless, aggressive youngsters, who are coming fresh out of the IPL 2024 season. Moreover, the team had a successful warm-up game against Bangladesh last weekend at the same venue in New York.

As usual, the responsibility to lead the charge will fall onto seniors like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Jasprit Bumrah, whereas youngsters like Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shivam Dube, and Arshdeep Singh will be given full freedom to express themselves.

On the other hand, Ireland are also high on confidence as they defeated Pakistan during the T20 bilateral series held last month. Ireland have been consistent in the T20 format for a while now as quality players continue to shine through. Veteran all-rounder Paul Stirling will lead a young Ireland side with Andrew Balbirnie, Mark Adair and Joshua Little shouldering the responsibilities equally. 

Historically, both India and Ireland have faced each other multiple times in bilateral series as well as the T20 World Cup where the men in blue certainly have had an upper hand.

Regardless, with the anticipation over the clash building, let's look at the head of head record between India and Ireland in the T20 format.

IND Vs IRE: Head To Head Record

India have faced Ireland seven times in the T20 format with India emerging victorious in all encounters. The 100% win record was extended when the men in blue claimed a series win against Ireland in 2023.
