In-form batter and captain Yash Dhull will be expecting a much improved batting effort from his team when record four-time champions India take on Ireland in their second Group B match of the ICC U-19 World Cup here on Wednesday.
Having started their campaign with a 45-run win over South Africa, the Indians are brimming with confidence and are expected to steamroll Ireland at the Brian Lara Stadium.
Both India and Ireland have registered wins in their openers. While India beat South Africa, Ireland defeated Uganda by 39 runs.
Dhull single-handedly anchored the Indian innings against the Proteas as they lost both their openers Harnoor Singh and Angkrish Raghu vanshi early after being put into bat.
But come Wednesday, Dhull would be looking for more support from his openers to ease the pressure on the middle and lower-order going into the knockout stages.
The bowlers though impressed with left-arm spinner Vicky Ostwal (5/28) the star performer.
(Match starts: 6:30pm IST)
