India will play a two-match T20I series against Ireland. Matches are on 26th and 28th June. Hardik Pandya will lead team India for the series. Many players are making a comeback to the Indian team through this series. So, in this article, we will see the top 5 Indian players to watch out for.
#5 Sanju Samson
Sanju Samson is a very underrated player. He was captain of the Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2022 and he led his team to the finals. As an individual batter, there is always a question of consistency and matureness in context to Samson but even after this, he has been given chance for the series.
#4 Harshal Patel
Harshal Patel can turn out to be a gem for team India. Patel has played every T20I match for team India after his international debut. There is no doubt that he is one of the best death overs bowlers in the world right now but he is not tested on pitches outside India and this Ireland series will be a crucial series for him.
#3 Surya Kumar Yadav
Surya Kumar Yadav is one of the most versatile batsmen of this generation. Yadav is a perfect T20I batsman and he is doing very well for India. Yadav is making a comeback after his injury which he got in between the IPL 2022. Surya Kumar Yadav will play a very important role for team India in the upcoming T20 world cup.
#2 Dinesh Karthik
Dinesh Karthik is a perfect example of age being just a number and a comeback is always stronger than a setback. He was not even a choice before IPL 2022 but after a great IPL season and a decent South Africa series many pundits of the game are demanding Karthik’s inclusion in the Indian squad for the T20 world cup and that’s why this Ireland series becomes very important for him.
#1 Hardik Pandya
It’s like a dream for Hardik Pandya as he will lead team India in the upcoming Ireland series. Hardik won his first IPL title as a captain of Gujarat Titans and after his success, he has been given chance to lead team India. All eyes will be on him not just as a captain but also as an individual player because there is no other all-rounder present in our country like him.
