The commencement of the toss for the third T20I match between India and Ireland has been deferred due to inclement weather, resulting in the deployment of protective covers at The Village in Dublin. According to the most recent communication from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), a light drizzle is currently ongoing, and if the weather prevents play from commencing by 9:15 pm, the number of overs in the match will be decreased.

Simultaneously, with an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series, the captaincy of Jasprit Bumrah has propelled Team India towards pursuing a clean sweep. In the preceding confrontation, India exhibited a comprehensive performance, clinching victory by a margin of 33 runs. Opting to bat first, the Indian team amassed a formidable total of 185/5, prominently driven by the batting prowess of Ruturaj Gaikwad. The late innings surge was facilitated by Rinku Singh and Shivam Dube.

Conversely, India's pace arsenal, under the leadership of Jasprit Bumrah and Prasidh Krishna, orchestrated a disciplined exhibition in the bowling department. Supported by Ravi Bishnoi, this trio secured two wickets each, ensuring that Ireland's batting unit could only muster 152/8 in their designated quota of 20 overs.
