After the start was delayed by nearly two and a half hours by rain, the gap between an Indian squad that has just completed a two-month stint at the world’s premier T20 competition and an Irish group that has had just four domestic T20 games was readily apparent.It has been a rewarding few months for Delany.20pm).Kumar’s new-ball skills did for captain Andrew Balbirnie.He watched in-swingers to Paul Stirling, was surprised by an out-swinger first up and then nicked another in-swinger the next delivery.Gareth Delany batting for Ireland during their frustrating World Cup campaign.Harry Tector's last four T20I innings: 24* off 15 v Germany 35 off 27 v Oman 50 off 37 v UAE 64* off 33 v India - today Spectacular form 🙌.Colmans South Mayo AC 14.
