Eoin Morgan, a former cricketer World Cup winner, may struggle to get picked for the T20 World Cup 2022

That's how we play: The guy didn't try and get out. It was down to good bowling, pressure, and the circumstances that he was in."


Kyle Mayers' unquenchable passion for Bangladeshi bowling led him to a second Test century, lifting the West Indies up to 340 for five on Saturday.


The pitch is playing a little more up-and down now, so if we can improve on the lead of 106 tomorrow, we will be in a very strong position."


This partnership, which gained momentum against a more dispirited Bangladesh bowling attack was aided by the outstanding work of Jermaine BLACKWOOD and Mayers, who saved the home side from an uncertain future with a 116-run fifth wicket stand.


Seamer Khaled Ahmad took two wickets in two overs, and Mehidy picked up the crucial wicket of captain Kraigg Bradwaite to start a West Indies slide.


Brathwaite and Campbell, the opening partner, started the day at 67 with no loss. This was their 100th century partnership in Tests.


But seamer Shoriful Islam interrupted those plans by extracting more bounce off the surface. Campbell's attempted hook was tipped for Nurul Hasan, who took a comfortable catch.


"We've been talking at team meetings about getting that hundred-run partnership under control," Campbell said as he reflected on his opening stand with his captain.


Raymon Reifer joined Campbell in 45's departure. This was after he failed twice in the first Test in Antigua one week prior, and under pressure to prove his place at number three in batting order.


Nkrumah Bonner, the new batsman, fell in a similar fashion in the next over of the bowler. The right-hander looked uncomfortable with the extra bounce and was forced to leave before he scored.


Shaw and Hardik Tamore, who was the makeshift opener for Yashasvi Jaiswal's injury, started well in a 63-run opening run. Both bats received reprieves. Shaw was dropped by Gaurav Yadav, while Tamore was saved by Rajat Patidar at the first slip.


Kumar Kartikeya Singh, left-arm spinner, was the first to die when Tamore sliced through his stumps as he attempted a sweep. Shaw, who had set off fireworks against Kartikeya, Anubhav, and Agarwal, was continually enticed to join Madhya Pradesh's bowling attack on balls at the fifth stump in the outside-off-stump channel.


Patidar carried on from day three. He slammed Madhya Pradesh's third century in the first innings of the third century, with chants from the crowd of 'RCB. RCB'. After scoring a score of 67 overnight, Patidar began by batting Mohit Awasthi through the middle wicket. Mumbai attempted to upset Patidar by hitting the ball into the pitch but the bounce was not enough to allow Patidar to pass through the mid-wicket twice.


KL Rahul and Rishabh Pan were not present in the squad squad. The trio was replaced by Sanju Samson and Rahul Tripathi.


After being out of the South Africa series with a injury, Suryakumar will be making his return to international circuit. Tripathi, who is thirty-one years old, will also make his debut for India against Ireland in the T20I.


The recently concluded T20I series against South Africa saw the Rishabh Pan-led team fail to make a positive start. Proteas started the series promisingly, winning their first two matches. The hosts made a remarkable comeback and won two matches in succession to tie the series. Rain forced the cancellation of the fifth and final match in the series.


India squad for T20I series against Ireland: Hardik Pandya (captain), Dinesh Karthik, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ishan Kishan, Harshal Patel, Suryakumar Yadav, Sanju Samson, Rahul Tripathi, Deepak Hooda, Venkatesh Iyer, Axar Patel, Avesh Khan, Umran Malik, Arshdeep Singh, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravi Bishnoi
