India vs Ireland, Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 Highlights: India defeated Ireland by 5 runs, according to the Duckworth Lewis method on Monday and make their way to the semifinals of the T20 World Cup. Earlier, rain had stopped the match  as the players went off and the covers came on. Ultimately the play could not continue and Ireland left the World Cup without a win in their kitty.

Earlier, Kaur had won the toss and opted to bat first.
