Most sixes in a T20 match: The Village Cricket Ground in Dublin was witness to an absolute run-fest during India versus Ireland 2nd T20I.
During the second and final T20I of the ongoing India’s tour of Ireland at The Village Cricket ground in Malahide, Dublin, team India got the better of Ireland by the barest of margins – 4 runs, in what turned out to be an absolute edge-of-the-seat, high scoring thriller encounter between the two sides.
The win has meant that team India not only clinched the two-match T20I series 2-0, but also maintained their winning streak against Ireland in T20Is.
In a match that saw both the teams post a combined total of 226 runs across 40 Overs, Ireland gave a relatively stronger Indian side a proper run for their money en route the target of 226 runs.
Led by the experienced Paul Stirling (40 off 18) right at the top of the batting order, Ireland got of to an ideal start to the stiff chase, with a 72-run stand for the first wicket between Stirling and skipper Andrew Balbirnie (60 off 37) in mere 5.4 Overs.
A spirited show on display by the Irish batters throughout the chase never lost steam, as they kept going for the big shots throughout the innings, to never let the Indian bowlers breathe easy even for a while.
