On June 28, the India team competed against Ireland in a two-game T20 International (T20I) series at Castle Avenue in Dublin.
In the first match of T20I, right-handed hitter Deepak Hooda came close to scoring a half-century in the first game, but he was unable to advance over 47 as India was trying to reach 110 with 16 free balls remaining.
Hooda returned on fire during the second T20I that India played against Ireland. He then became the fourth Indian batsman to reach the three-figure milestone in just 55 balls. Hooda is the only 4th Indian to hit 100 in just 55 balls. He followed Suresh Raina, Rohit Sharma, and KL Rahul to score a century in T20I.
