However, India’s joy would have been dampened by the thought that they too might have to bat first on a similar surface when they take the field on Sunday to play arch-rivals Pakistan in the key match of the group stage.

Rohit said, “I don't know what to expect against Pakistan, we will prepare according to the conditions there.”

However, Bumrah has no objection to this. The fast bowler said, “Coming from India, when you see the ball seaming here, I will never complain, because bowlers get help here.”

Only four Ireland batsmen reached double figures, with Gareth Delany top-scoring with 26, before he was run out in the 16th over.

“It was a tough match,” said Ireland captain Paul Stirling. “The toss played a very important role in the overcast conditions and then the pitch offered all sorts of variations.

“We were not up for that challenge and India put us under pressure by bowling very well.”
