Indian Captain Hardik Pandya’s comments on winning the toss

“We are going to bowl. We would have loved to bat, but looking at the weather we felt bowling would be better. Nice to be in Ireland. Have fans here and it feels like playing at home.

An absolute honor to lead India. Any cricket who starts playing dreams of leading the country and I am fortunate to be leading my country.

My role is simple. Just back them (the players) and ask them to play with freedom and express themselves. Umran makes his debut.”

Ireland Captain Andrew Balbirnie’s comment on not winning the toss

“Probably would have bowled because of the weather around. Guys are excited about this series. Really important to play against one of the best teams in the world. 

Conor Olphert is going to make his debut today.”
