India sealed the series with a 143 run victory after being asked to bat first for the second time in a row.Ireland’s bowling attack had no counter to the onslaught by the Indian batsman as they managed to pile up a mammoth score of 213-4. KL Rahul and Suresh Raina were the standout performers after scoring 70 and 69 respectively.Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli failed to create an impact as both failed to reach double figures. Kohli’s move to open the innings backfired as he was dismissed for 9. Similarly, the No.4 curse for Rohit Sharma carried from the Mumbai Indians as the Hitman was dismissed for a duck.Hardik Pandya’s quickfire cameo steered India’s total to 213-5. The all-rounder managed to score 32 runs off the 9 balls he faced, scoring 4 sixes in the process.The Irish batting was in utter shambles as they had no answer to India’s disciplined bowling line-up which included debutant Siddharth Kaul.
