India won in the last ball, decided to win-win by just four runs in the last over defeated Ireland to win the series 2-0


With an amazing win at the T20 match in Dublin on Tuesday night, the Indian team, who won the first match, won the toss and batted first and scored a huge score of 225 runs.

Deepak Hooda scored a brilliant century in the second T20I match against Ireland on Tuesday and became only the fourth Indian batsman to score a century in T20 Internationals. The right-handed batsman looked very emotional after the century who scored 104 runs in 57 balls, which included nine fours and six sixes while Sanju Samson (77) hit a quick fifty.

In reply to 225, Ireland could only manage 221 runs. In this way, the two-match series was 2-0 in the name of India.

In the first over, Sterling gave Bhuvneshwar Kumar a hard time. The team had scored 72 runs when he was dismissed after 5.4 overs. After amassing 40 runs in 18 balls, veteran batsman Sterling was removed from the game. The run rate stayed the same even after this wicket. Andy Andrew Balberlin, the second opener and captain, scored 60 runs off of 37 balls. Harry Tector (39), who emerged as the winner in the previous game, also received the bat. Till the very end, the Indian bowlers were troubled by George Dockrell (34 not out off 16 balls) and Mark Eder (23 not out off 12 balls).
