Kaur played her 149th T20I against England on Sunday and shattered Rohit Sharma's record for most appearances (148) in the shortest format. She has now featured in her 150th game against Ireland. 

India are a strong side. Their batting group has been the torch bearer for them. They won the first two matches against Pakistan and West Indies. However, their bowling has not been at its best on two out of three games. They conceded nearly 150 runs against Pakistan and England. Their batting bailed them out against Pakistan but England defeated them on Saturday. For Ireland, they have had their moments in the tournament. They troubled the English lineup in their first match, but lost a nail-biter to West Indies in the third match. They are a young team and have shown glimpses of good bowling.
