  lindia win the match 

Paul Stirling was the first wicket to fell for Ireland after a decent opening stand. Ireland after winning the toss opted to bat first and openers William Porterfield and Stirling shared 89 for the first wicket. Stirling was looking to over long-off, but could not get the distance and was caught by Ajinkya Rahane. The right-handed batsman looked in good touch before playing a poor shot. He fell on an individual score of 41 off 42 balls.

Despite having already qualified for quarterfinals, India fielded the unchanged side that featured against West Indies at Perth. Team India have been undefeated so far, winning four out of four matches. India have registered straight eight victories at the mega event, starting from their win against the West Indies in Chennai during the 2011 edition. MS Dhoni’s boys are likely to top Pool A and face Bangladesh in quarterfinals.

Ireland without any doubt have been the best Associate Nation in ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 and even have been playing better cricket than some regular members. Having stunned West Indies in their opening game by chasing down the target of 305, Ireland looks a balanced side. Barring their defeat against South Africa they have been competitive enough.

Playing XI-

India: Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni(w/c), Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav, Mohit Sharma.  

Ireland: William Porterfield(c), Paul Stirling, Ed Joyce, Andrew Balbirnie, Niall O’Brien, Gary Wilson(w), Kevin O’Brien, John Mooney, George Dockrell, Alex Cusack, Stuart Thompson.
