Dhoni elect to bowl agianst Ireland

Trent Bridge: Indian skipper MS Dhoni has won the toss and elected to bowl under cloudy conditions at Trent Bridge. It's an 18-over-a-side game and the power plays have been reduced to five overs each.

Dhoni said he wanted to be sure about the target India would need to chase just in case rain interrupted play midway. Team India remains unchanged.


Ireland, who will be playing tomorrow as well, chose not to risk playing Trent Johnston, who took three wickets against Bangladesh, and the injured Niall O'Brien. Andrew White and Andre Botha took their places.


India: 1 Gautam Gambhir, 2 Rohit Sharma, 3 Suresh Raina, 4 Yuvraj Singh, 5 MS Dhoni (capt/wk), 6 Yusuf Pathan, 7 Ravindra Jadeja, 8 Irfan Pathan, 9 Harbhajan Singh, 10 Zaheer Khan, 11 Ishant Sharma

Ireland: 1 William Porterfield (capt), 2 Jeremy Bray, 3 Andrew White, 4 Gary Wilson, 5 John Mooney, 5 Kevin O'Brien, 7 Andre Botha, 8 Kyle McCallan, 9 Regan West, 10 Alex Cusack, 11 Boyd Rankin
