T20 World Cup: Malan says Ireland must believe they can shock India

Written by on June 3, 2024

India, who were beaten on home turf by Australia at last year’s 50-overs World Cup Final, will be captained by Rohit Sharma with ex-skipper Virat Kohli still a crucial component of their batting line-up.

Yuzvendra Chahal, the only bowler to take 200 wickets in IPL history, is among four spinners selected for the tournament while Rishabh Pant is among the squad’s two wicketkeepers some 16 months after he survived a serious car crash.

With India certain to have huge support in New York, just as they have wherever they play, Malan is hoping that US-based Irish folk will take the opportunity to cheer on their team at the Nassau County Stadium on Long Island.

“We need everyone there to be honest,” added the Ireland coach.

“It doesn’t matter where you play India. We’ve played them at home over the last couple of years and they get people behind them. It will be nice to get some Irish supporters out there and I’m sure we will.

“Hopefully we can play some good cricket over the week that we’re there and catch up with them for a beer afterwards.”
