The venue of the match is at The Village, Dublin.
With Rahul in contention for a starting spot in the middle order, Manish Pandey, Suresh Raina and Dinesh Karthik will be left jostling for two spots. The Indian side is looking good and strong. Kohli, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah and MS Dhoni were rested for the T20 tri-series in Sri Lanka in March.
Ireland will return to action in August when they host Afghanistan in three T20Is and three ODIs in August, with India now off to Old Trafford for Tuesday's first Twenty20 worldwide against England, live on Sky Sports Cricket (channel 404) and Sky Sports Main Event (401) from 5pm. Umesh Yadav last played an ODI in September 2017 against Australia at Bengaluru.
Going into the first T20I, Kohli and the team management will have a sweet dilemma over the selection of the playing XI.
Vela, Hernandez power Mexico past South Korea 2-1
The record for penalties at the World Cup stands at 18 in 2002. South Korea will face Germany at the same time in Kazan.
Punjab and Sunrisers Hyderabad quick Siddarth Kaul received his maiden India cap ahead, as the visitors made four changes to the side that won the first T20I between the two teams. Indian opener Rohit Sharma top scored with 97, batting through to the final over before being bowled trying to go for the big hit that would have brought up his century. Dhoni and Raina are the other current' members from that playing eleven nine years ago.
With Pandya as the third seaming option, it will also be interesting to see whether medium pacer Siddharth Kaul makes his India debut after an impressive stint in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Ireland likely XI for 2nd T20I: Paul Stirling, James Shannon, Andy Balbirnie, Simi Singh, Gary Wilson (c), Kevin O'Brien, Stuart Poynter (wk), Andy McBrine, George Dockrell, Boyd Rankin, Peter Chase.
In the second T20 worldwide match against Ireland, the Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya played a cameo knock of 32 off just 9 deliveries, which helped India to post a mammoth total of 213.
