India’s bowlers, led by Jasprit Bumrah, who gave away just 6 runs in his 3-over spell and took two wickets, applied relentless pressure. Hardik Pandya was the standout performer, claiming 3 wickets for 27 runs in his 4 overs. Arshdeep Singh also contributed significantly, maintaining an economy rate of 8.75 and picking up 2 wickets, as Ireland was restricted to a mere 96 runs in 16 overs.
