Meanwhile, Ireland pacer Craig Young believes that his bowlers have to be accurate with their bowling plans against India, saying that if one of them misses the spot, then the visitors’ batters can blast the balls over their head. On Sunday, in the first T20I, reduced to 12-overs-per-side due to rain, India chased down 109 with 16 balls to spare. In the loss, Young was the pick of the bowlers for Ireland, claiming 2/18 in two overs.
“There was enough in Sunday’s performance to take forward. It might have been nice to bowl first on that pitch, but in a 12-over game, the pitch isn’t going to change much. We know the Malahide wicket always has a little in it for the bowlers – you just have to put it in the right areas.
“You’ve got to get the line and length right with these guys, you`ve got that small margin of error – if you miss the spot then they (Indian batters) will blast it over your head. To be honest, I think we did get the line right most of the time, but we bowled a bit full at times, which let us down,” said Young ahead of the second T20I on Tuesday.
