Bhuvneshwar has a chance to break Bumrah’s record
In this match, Bhuvneshwar Kumar has a chance to become the second highest wicket-taker for India in T20. Currently, pacer Jasprit Bumrah is in second place in this list. He has so far taken 67 wickets in 57 T20Is while Bhuvneshwar has 65 wickets in 65 matches in his account. Bhuvneshwar will equal Bumrah’s record as soon as he takes two more wickets in the second T20 and he will leave Bumrah behind as soon as he takes the third wicket.
Pitch could be good for batting
Dublin’s pitch is considered good for batting. Due to the bounce in the pitch, the ball comes well on the bat and fast bowlers can also take advantage of it. If it rains, the team that bowls first can make the most of the conditions. In the last T20 too, Ireland scored 108 runs in 12 overs at an economy rate of 9. For Ireland, Harry Tector had scored a half-century. After this, India had also achieved the target of victory in 9.2 overs. The mood of the pitch may remain the same in the second T20 as well.
