IND vs IRE, T20 World Cup 2024: Dream11 Predictions for Match 8 [X]IND vs IRE, T20 World Cup 2024: Dream11 Predictions for Match 8 [X]

The Indian team (IND) will begin their T20 World Cup 2024 campaign against Ireland (IRE). This will be the eighth match of the tournament, and it will be played at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York on June 5 at 8 PM IST. 

Ahead of the match, here is a look at the Dream11 predictions, fantasy tips, the pitch report, the top player picks and the best-predicted XIs for the fantasy contests of the match.

IND vs IRE Pitch Report

Only one official T20I has been played at the Nassau County Cricket Stadium: the match between Sri Lanka and South Africa in this World Cup. From what we have seen in that game, it will be a nightmare for the batters. We saw lateral movement at the beginning of the match, and with the progression of the game, spin also came into play. So, the batters will likely find it hard to score runs on this track, and the bowlers will play a bigger role in deciding the fate of the game.

Fantasy value from the pitch report

  • The batters will find it difficult to score runs on this track. Technically sound batters who are ready to spend the initial phase without taking many risks would be good choices for the fantasy contests in this game. 
  • Bowlers from both sides will leave a big impact in the fantasy contests. Picking more Indian bowlers could be rewarding, but do not ignore all the Irish bowlers; pick at least one or two from them. 

IND vs IRE Fantasy Cricket Tips

It is expected that India will win this game. But Ireland has been playing good cricket, and they have notched up their game enough to be competitive against India. So, you can go with more Indian players, but an 8-3, a 9-2 combination in their favour, might be too risky. A 7-4 or a 6-5 combination favouring Indian players seems like the safer approach.

IND vs IRE Winner Prediction

India are one of the premier title contenders for this tournament. The team looked in good shape in the practice game against Bangladesh at the same venue. Also, the on-paper strength of the two squads suggests that India are the clear favourite to win this match. However, Ireland can no longer be considered minnows, and they can pull off the first big upset in this edition of the T20 World Cup. 

IND vs IRE Top Player Picks

Virat Kohli (IND)

The Indian superstar will be confident entering this tournament. Virat Kohli had a tremendous IPL 2024 season, emerging as the highest run scorer and looking in great touch. He will be looking to carry the momentum into the World Cup and play a significant role for his nation. Besides, Kohli enjoys batting in T20 World Cups, and thus, he will be the prime choice for the fantasy contests of the match. 

Jasprit Bumrah will play a big role for India in the T20 World Cup 2024 [X]Jasprit Bumrah will play a big role for India in the T20 World Cup 2024 [X]

Jasprit Bumrah (IND)

India's success in the T20 World Cup 2024 will depend heavily on Jasprit Bumrah alongside Kohli. If Bumrah continues his wicket-taking form of IPL 2024, then India will have a great chance of winning the title here. Given the nature of the wicket, Bumrah will be a safe choice for the fantasy contests.

Kuldeep Yadav will be a trump card for Indian in T20 World Cup 2024 [X]Kuldeep Yadav will be a trump card for Indian in T20 World Cup 2024 [X]

Kuldeep Yadav (IND)

While we saw lateral movement with the new ball in the Sri Lanka vs South Africa match, the wicket also helped the spinners once the ball got old. If the wicket behaves the same away in this game, then Kuldeep Yadav could be decisive both for the fate of the match and for the fantasy contests. 

IND vs IRE Differential Picks

Lorcan Tucker (IRE)

The Irish wicket-keeper batter is coming into the T20 World Cup 2024 with a brilliant batting form. In the last six matches, Lorcan Tucker has scored 227 runs at an average of 37.83 while maintaining a strike rate of over 140. He could play a crucial role for Ireland in the game.

Mark Adair (IRE)

This medium-pace bowler could be crucial if the wicket provides the same lateral movement as in the SL vs SA game. Mark Adair can shock India by picking up one or two big wickets upfront if he gets assistance from the pitch.

IND vs IRE Fantasy Expert Advice

Given how the wicket has behaved in the only match that was played here and the strengths of the two teams, a 2-4-2-3 combination could be rewarding.
